Eli | First Birthday | Cheboygan

What better way to memorialize a first birthday than with a special cake smash session in the studio?!  Our first birthday photography sessions in our Cheboygan studio include customized portraits to begin with a favorite outfit of your choosing then move to birthday balloons and cake!  Eli had his outfit specially ordered with a Mickey Mouse theme- isn’t the tie and suspenders just adorable?

Eli was mesmerized with the balloons and had fun playing with them.  (check out the little Nikes!)

Next we let him loose with the cake!  He was unsure of it at first but once he started to get his hands messy, he went for it!  I loved the bright colors chosen for the cake.  Not only did it match his theme perfectly, it made for some really fun and colorful photos (and clothes!).  I can honestly say, I don’t think a bit of it went into his mouth though!

This year I have added slideshow presentations to our gallery reveals in the studio.  When clients come in for their ordering appointments, I have the images displayed on our 50″ smart TV for best possible viewing.  I find the slideshows are a great way introduce and personalize each session.
