This was such an exciting cake smash to prepare for! Mom contacted me to set up a cake smash session for her gorgeous little boy Manraj in my home studio located in St. Albert, Alberta. (Baby Photography St. Albert) We talked about colors and clothing and she ended up choosing a theme very similar to Valentines day…she wanted her toddler boy to be Cupid! How sweet and adorable. His name means “ruler of hearts” so how fitting that his one year old cake smash session theme is cupid. I just couldn’t get over how gorgeous this little man’s eyes are! Just takes you in and steals your heart! (no pun intended lol)
We started the one year old birthday photography session in this blue pin striped suit, fedora hat and red scarf around his neck. How adorable is this? He was very curious as to what I was doing with my camera and the huge studio lights flashing at him. It was going to take a bit of time for this little boy to warm up.
These cupid (angel wings) and furry little halo is so adorable, he looks like a baby out of a magazine.
This pose of our birthday boy reminds me of “hey I am so cute…look at me!” Just love his expression for this pose.
Now I was getting a bit more out of Manraj…a little smirk at this point was a win for us!!! This was one of the best shots from this baby photography Edmonton session. His adorable fedora, white shirt, and jeans with suspenders…PERFECT!
During our one year old portrait sessions, I will sometimes put my hands up high and say how big are you? I am this big! Manraj decided to copy me! So cute!
Look at me Mom, I am so cute and standing like a big boy, while I get my photos taken to give you every lasting memories of how small and cute I am!
At this point in the one year old cake smash session, Manraj wasn’t giving any smiles, I asked Mom and Dad to give me a moment with him, and ta da !!! A smile! I really feel like it was a miracle, given this was the only one he gave up to me in my St. Albert Studio.
