Dublin First Birthday Cake Smash Photography

First Birthday “Smash & Splash” | Karrer Barn & LeenaBee Studio | Dublin, Ohio

This momma is a dear friend of mine and I’m so blessed she trusts me with her little ones.  We went to grad school together, have been co-workers for years and now she brings her adorable kids to come play with me!  Baby Grayson did the My First Year milestone package, so we got to visit several times throughout his first year, ending with his recent cake smash & splash session.  We started outside for some family photos, went to the studio to do his cake smash, then headed back out to do a splash session to get him cleaned up!  He was all smiles and we had a blast!

Also, just for memory’s sake… take a look at his year inside the bucket!  We used the same silver bucket prop at his newborn, 6 month and one year session (by then he was too big to fit into it!)  Look how he changed!

First Birthday Session | Historic Dublin & LBP Studio | Dublin, Ohio

Baby Avery has been visiting us since she was just a few days old and last week, she came to smash her cake!  “My First Year Milestone” sessions are close to our heart… we love seeing mom & dad throughout the year, and love getting to know the little ones as they are growing up, literally right in front of our camera!  Meet beautiful baby Avery…

Ellie turns 1!

First Birthday Cake Smash Session // LeenaBee Studio // Dublin, Ohio

It is so much fun watching our littlest clients grow up! I can hardly believe that it has already been a year since Ellie’s newborn session with us. She has always been the perfect little model for us, and her cake smash was no exception! Happy Birthday Miss Ellie!

Tu Family | Little Ones First Birthday Session | LeenaBee Studio

The Tu family first came to us last holiday season… mom, dad and four littles!  Momma stays busy with her crew and managed to sneak beautiful little Rilyn into the studio for some one-on-one time for her first birthday session.  We did the Little Ones session without a cake and even though smashes are my favorite, sometimes the simplicity of a regular session is just perfect.  We had enough time to do several outfit changes and captured her laughing, clapping, climbing and even a few pouting.  Meet Rilyn!

Baby Evan | First Birthday Cake Smash | LeenaBee Studio, Dublin 

Baby Evan has been coming to us since he was just a few weeks old and we’ve loved watching him grow.  Now that he is one, he truly is a WILD ONE!  “Evie” as we call him, is a bundle of energy and didn’t sit still longer than a few seconds at a time.  Check out this little man’s session with mostly smiles, a few tears (he didn’t love his bow tie or crown), some fur eating and some cake smashing!

The Weideman family just moved here from out of town and were sad to leave their family photographer they’d worked with since their engagement.  We know how that is… we get very attached to our LBP families as we capture their memories through proposals, weddings, babies & beyond.

We are certainly glad they found us!  They were so fun & pleasant to work with and baby Ethan was the ultimate cake smasher!  He had a blast finger painting in the blue icing and turning himself into a little smurf.  🙂  We are thankful we got to document his first birthday session and hope to see the this family for years to come.  Welcome to Cbus Weidemans!

Little Maya celebrated her first birthday with us “Sweet & Simple” style.  We got a few quick pictures in her birthday outfit, then she went right in for the smash!

We’ve been taking pictures of this family since their little guy joined them a year ago. We say it all the time, that first year goes SO fast and we are blessed to capture those memories for mommas & dads!  Jake’s first birthday photo shoot included our favorite things, a cake smash & lots of smiles. 🙂  With winter birthdays, we don’t get outside as often as we’d like, but he was just as happy in the studio.  Happy first year Jake!

This family has been so much fun to watch grow over the last few years. They are always so fun and easy going, and can we talk about those headbands? Too cute! Happy Birthday Lennon…you are one loved little girl!

We’ve been photographing the Cather’s for a few years now and it’s been a joy watching them grow from a family of three to a family of four.  Even though they live out of town and we don’t see them as often as we’d like, we genuinely enjoy meeting up with them to document another milestone in their lives.

We started their session at the Karrer Barn, then headed back to our in-home studio space for the cake smash.  The cute ombre smash cake was from Our CupCakery and this was our last session before moving to our new studio space in Historic Dublin.  As the saying goes, we saved the best for last… we hope this kind, fun family visits us for years to come!
