Anton’s First Birthday Cake Smash Portraits | Sacramento Baby Photographer | Sacramento, CA

Happy first birthday to this little cutie!  I had a wonderful time photographing Anton and his family at a beautiful spot on the American River.
When this little guy’s mom first contacted me asking if I could set up a fishing themed cake smash session for her one year old, I had the biggest smile on my face.  You see, fishing is kind of our family’s “thing”.  My husband has been obsessed with catching fish since he was a little boy himself, and I always enjoy taking photos of him and my son doing their favorite past time.  Over the years, I’ve had a lot of practice.  The best time to catch fish tends to be at sunrise and sunset, which is also the BEST time to take pictures -when the lighting is gorgeous and golden.  So whenever I go out to the lake or the river with my husband and son, I almost always bring my camera.  I’ve learned not only where the best spots to catch fish around Sacramento are, but also where the best spots to photograph fishermen are.  The location in Sacramento that we used for our cake smash shoot is a spot that I stumbled upon on a fishing trip a couple of years ago.  I love the way the sun sets near this boat dock, and thought it would be just perfect for a “Gone Fishing” cake smash session.
I love the way that this set came together!  I really enjoyed photographing this family, they were all so nice and natural models.  Anton has a big sister who is not only beautiful but a true sweetheart.  The birthday boy was a little shy, but he warmed right up to me when I gave him a gummy worm and he was a huge fan of his birthday cake.  After he smashed his cake and was covered in frosting, we ended our shoot with a bubble bath.  I love bringing along my tub to all my cake smash sessions because it is such an easy way to clean up the babies.  These bath tub shots always makes for the most darling photos plus the little ones have fun splashing and playing in the bubbles.
Happy birthday little guy!  I hope you hook a big one!
