A ONE-derful Smash & Splash for Jayson’s 1st Birthday!

Nov 8, 2021

Proud, emotional Auntie here… my nephew turned ONE last month and I’m all in my feelings about it! He is such a sweet boy and growing up quicker than any of us would like. (So fast that he’s the same size as my tiny 2-year-old!)

We did a few simple poses of him on a blue background to match his newborn and milestone photos. I love being able to do comparison photos like this for my clients, they’re perfect to frame together in your home!

Next, we did some Fresh Prince-inspired photos and they’re quite possibly my most favorite images EVER. Jayson loves to dance, and these photos capture that perfectly!

Then… it was on to the smash & splash.

We went back and forth for quite some time deciding on the perfect theme for his cake smash. In the end, his Mama decided on a simple black, silver, and white theme.

I always tell parents that only about 50% of one-year-olds fully enjoy the cake smash portion, and sweet Jayson was part of the half that didn’t. We still got some really sweet photos of him and like most babies, he absolutely loved the bath splash!

>> Shoutout to Coccadotts Cake Shop of Myrtle Beach for creating this gorgeous ombre smash cake! It was super soft and extra delicious. (I fully admit to sampling the icing, because this was the one cake smash where I could actually do that, lol!!)

Here are some of my favorite photos from his Mr. ONE-derful smash & splash!
