Cake-Smashing Good Fun

This post originally appeared on our old blog, Born to be a Bride.

Who can believe that our sweet Willow-girl is less than a week from ONE? Certainly, her weepy mother cannot. I’ll include many more stunning birthday portraits from our beloved family photographer, Cristina Lee Photography, in an upcoming post. I’m keeping most of them just for family this week, while I continue to work on birthday crafts.

But! Here is a sneak peek into one of the most special shoots we’ve done. If you are based in the Long Island or New York Metro area, I highly recommend Cristina. Not only does she truly care about each family and each shot, she takes her time to ensure the shoot is a success. She assembled these gorgeous sets for us (and snapped us outdoors for our family holiday pics — also stunning!), including the adorable first-ever birthday cake for Miss Willow.

I am also pleased to say that Willow’s clothing and accessories were all handmade. Shop info is at the bottom of this post.

There aren’t enough words for how special yesterday was to Josh and me. Watching Willow grow up is so beautifully bittersweet. Having quality images like this to hold onto forever is priceless beyond measure. Here’s a little teaser for our friends in Blogland.
