Dublin First Birthday // Cake Smash Photography

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!

Baby M’s Sweet & Simple First Birthday session started at one of our favorite locations, the Karrer Barn. Her family and big brother were happy to help document this special occasion!  We then headed to our in-home studio space for her cake smash, complete with a cute gold star banner & cake topper.  We hope her Twinkle, Twinkle birthday party was as adorable as her photo session!

We LOVE capturing first birthdays.

Lily just started walking, so we were able to document some of those wobbly early steps.  She hasn’t had much sugar, and we were able to capture her smiles as she daintily tasted her cake [mom & dad even got in on the action!].  And she was our very first “splash” session… taking a bubble bath after her cake smash to clean up.  Her family was sweet and the session was lots of fun!  Meet Lily…

This so-cute-we-want-to-squish-him baby is growing up too fast!  Cam came to us last year as a newborn and suddenly, he’s one.   His first birthday session started at one of our favorite nearby parks, then ended in our studio space for the big cake smash.  He never stopped smiling!

The Russo family chose the upgraded Ultimate Cake Smash, which allows time for indoor and outdoor photos, family shots and of course, the cake smash. Although we are primarily lifestyle, on location photographers, the more stylized first birthday with cake smash will always be one of our favorites.  This little man was all smiles and dug right into his blue ombre smash cake, courtesy of Our CupCakery!  Dublin cake smash-1Dublin cake smash-2Dublin cake smash-3Dublin cake smash-4Dublin cake smash-5Dublin cake smash-6Dublin cake smash-7Dublin cake smash-8Dublin cake smash-9Dublin cake smash-11Dublin cake smash-12Dublin cake smash-13Dublin cake smash-14Dublin cake smash-15Dublin cake smash-16Dublin cake smash-17Dublin cake smash-18Dublin cake smash-19Dublin cake smash-20Dublin cake smash-21Dublin cake smash-22Dublin cake smash-23Dublin cake smash-24Dublin cake smash-25Dublin cake smash-26
