We all scream for an ice cream cake smash! Don’t we? As NJ first birthday photographers the opportunity to design, create and capture cake smash sessions is so much fun and we always look forward each one. Giavanna’s session was all sorts of sweet, perfect and fun!

The session began with several styles of classic portraits. Mom provided all the outfits for the session; however,  we do offer a wide range of newborn and baby outfits for clients to borrow. Giavanna needed no help in the happy department. She was all smiles and it didn’t take much for her to show us that sweet smile.

For their family shots, we photographed them against our natural light backdrop and used our chaise for main seating and a prop, Mom, Ashley, also wanted Giavanna decked out in some pearls, so we opted for one of our lace diaper covers and draped strands of pearls around her neck. The look was topped off with a little gold crown! Definitely a princess in the making.

Easter, at the time, was only a few weeks away and we had already set up and created our Easter/Spring set, we decided to use that to our advantage for a few more classic portraits. Her cute, mauve romper was perfect with the set and she was the first (and unfortunately, the only) little one to be photographed in this set. Giavanna looked so cute and we loved how these shots turned out!

We finally graduated to our ice cream cake smash session and we couldn’t wait for Giavanna to Scoop in! She wore a cute, sprinkle romper, accompanied with a little birthday hat.  Behind her, the set was outfitted in a rainbow of pastels, a vintage ice cream parlor store front, and ice cream accessories. Our favorite was the cardboard ice cream struck and the light up ice cream cones. Actually, our favorite was the perfectly designed cake – a round cake with an upside down ice cream cone that dripped down the sides. It was everything and more and for our very first ice cream cake smash session, we think it turned out better then two scoops!

We loved getting to know and sharing the afternoon with this family and we loved how wonderful all the photos came out. Giavanna was definitely a rockstar and we hope she had the sweetest birthday ever!
