Happy birthday to Mr. Nolan! It was Nolan’s actual birthday the day of his cake-smash session. Being a CNY Baby Photographer, I enjoyed having Nolan return for his 1-year-old cake smash milestone session. His mom did a fantastic job with his theme “Wild One”, and even hand painted a sign for the session.
Nolan’s on location session was captured at my home. I have ginormous fir trees that aided as a ‘wild’ backdrop and gave us shade from the rising morning sun. The light provided can make or break a portrait. I try to avoid shooting my sessions during the common day hours to avoid harsh shadows and darkened eyes. The trees worked as a perfect shade for the time we were on location for his CNY baby photography session.
As most of my followers know, I offer so much variety with my CNY Baby photography sessions. We could’ve continued on location with the bubble bath and second outfit, but the studio was only 50 feet away. What I love most about shooting in studio is the complete control I have in it. On location portraits are gorgeous, but I have no control over the weather, bugs and other obstacles that might appear. In studio I can control the environment in which I shoot. It also added a little more variety to his gallery by changing the location. By switching it up just a tad, I was able to create a whole new look and still provide a consistent and beautiful gallery for mom.
Inside, we cleaned Nolan up with a top-notch bubble bath. I think he found my rubber duckies to be his favorite prop next to his dad blowing bubbles. Bubbles are a favorite distraction for toddlers aging 1-4. I love the pure joy it brings to their faces when they start floating through the studio.
It is always a huge compliment to me, whenever a newborn returns for updated portraits. I was honored to be asked again to capture his precious image.
