Arabella’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash

by Rachel Gaetz

This June I got to photograph a cake smash session with Bella to commemorate her first birthday! Bella was such a doll. She had a very dainty approach to cake tasting, using just one finger at a time. Then she insisted on sharing a bite with her mama and then promptly crawled away from her cake once she had enough. I could probably take some etiquette lessons from her.

Happy birthday, once more, sweet girl! I have a feeling one is going to be a wonderful year for you!
(Cake is from The Cakery, all beautiful outfits and props were provided by her mama Kate. and the cake stand was borrowed from my friend Norah. Cute pics take a village, people!)
