Double the cake. Double the handsomeness. Double the trouble. These two dapper brothers were a hoot during their one-year birthday session! We decided that an outdoor cake smash would be fitting for these young explorers.
Luke and Connor may be twins, but they definitely have their own separate little personalities. During the shoot, one was more stoic and contemplative, giving us some precious model-like poses, while his fun-loving brother couldn’t hide his emotions even if he wanted to—his little eyebrows and open-mouthed laughter said it all. Both little guys had so much fun being outdoors and playing in the early-fall sunshine.
When they caught a glimpse of their first birthday cakes headed toward them, their tiny toes curled in anticipation and their bright eyes widened in excitement. They were too cute. In true all-boy fashion (or maybe just all-kid), they quickly tried to get rid of the cake stands so they could really get after it. But after touching some of the blue icing, they weren’t too sure what to think. After trying a few bites, we let their beloved pup join in the fun (who had absolutely no problem licking up the icing).
These two brothers are such a delight to be around. They were so easy to capture, and I rarely had to coral or pose them—very impressive for one-year-olds! I loved the simplicity of this shoot. Their sweet faces and personalities were in the spotlight! Most of these portraits could be used at any time of year or hung in any kind of frames. They look so classic. I truly had a blast capturing this huge milestone. Happiest of birthdays, Luke and Connor!
