Picking a theme or an idea for your child's first birthday portrait session isn't easy. This blog is filled with ideas to inspire you.
Start by picking a color
I love working with just a few colors and incorporate them into a festive setup with balloons, confetti, garlands and cutouts.
Tip: Choose the nursery colors and you'll have the perfect spot to hang your portraits!
Pick a favorite song or book
Baby Shark, Oh the Places You'll Go, Peter Rabbit, and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, just to name a few
Was your baby born on a special holiday or in a particular season? Incorporate that into the cake smash! Christmas, New Year's, Winter Wonderland, Spring, Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving (pumpkin pie smash). These are all fun ideas.
Nautical - Always a popular theme!
This one is very popular request for boys.
Floral - Another Popular request!
Pink floral are always a popular request for little girls, and I love coming up with new ways to design the setups so that each one is unique.
