The Cake – If you have been around a while, I’m sure you have seen the simple yet classically beautiful cakes I use for my client’s One Year Sessions. I get asked all the time where I get them from, and believe it or not, I just order a naked 6” cake with buttercream icing from H-E-B! They are the perfect option for baby’s first cake; easy for little hands to dive into, take bites of, and provide great opportunities for those timeless cake smash photos. They are also so easy to embellish with your choice of cake topper, greenery, flowers, berries, or anything that baby is into. You can check out some of my recent First Year Collective sessions here and here for photos and to see different ways I have styled them.

And of course, remember that the most important part of your little one’s first birthday party is celebrating your child’s first year of life with family and friends. Don’t stress too much about the details, and try to take it all in and just enjoy the day.
