Simple & Organic One Year Cake Smash Studio Session | Stella Jane | Laurenda Marie Photography | Grand Rapids, Michigan

We are very boy heavy in my family, so when we found out my sister was having a baby girl we were over the moon! It's been so fun to watch her grow from an itty bitty newborn to a squishy, curious, and determined baby girl - who walked at 9 months! My boys didn't walk until 15 and 17 months, to be exact, so I know hitting this milestone so early was quite the feat! Girl was ready to move!

I wanted Stella's one year cake smash session to be very raw, simple, and organic. I am a lover of WHITE clean spaces and simplicity, so I utilized a studio space in Grand Rapids that would fit this vision.

I picked up the cake from a local grocery store, and I purchased some green stems to place on and around it for a pop of color. Stella wore a blush pink ruffle diaper cover from Old Navy. It all came together perfectly!

We started the session with a few simple portraits, then we moved right to the cake - which Stella was a HUGE fan of.

Her big family birthday celebration was the previous day, so it's safe to say she enjoyed her fair share of cake that weekend! Big thanks to my Mom who came out to assist! We couldn't have pulled it all off without your help!
