Backyard Cake Smash Photography in Warrenton, Virginia

These backyard cake smash pictures in Warrenton, VA that I did over the weekend are super special for this family. Not only did Baby F turned 1, but these were also taken at the backyard of a home they just recently moved into. Yup, they were originally from a different state and just moved into the DMV area. Plus, they are also a huge nature lover. How special is that, right?

We did the cake smash photos an hour after sunrise which was perfect because Baby F was in the best mood possible. R, the mom, shared that Baby F was the happiest in the morning so that’s when we’ve scheduled their session for.

I absolutely support R’s choice to keep the photoshoot very minimal. We had a yellow plaid blanket laid on their backyard, a simple yet beautiful cake on a cake stand. And then later on during the session, we used Baby F’s high chair. Keeping the props to a minimum ensures that the focus of the cake smash pictures will be Baby F, which is what I always recommend.

Baby F was a bit hesitant about the cake at first. She hasn’t had cake before so it’s absolutely understandable. Luckily G, their four-legged family member, showed her how to enjoy the delicious cake R ordered for her photos. And of course, we had Mr. Squirrel, Baby F’s favorite stuffy, join us for some of the photos. I love that we got to document everything about this phase of Baby F’s life.

R – Thank you so much for trusting me to do Baby F’s cake smash photos at your backyard in Warrenton, Virginia. It has been an honor of mine to document this special milestone in your family’s life. I had a great time with you guys and it was super fun watching Baby F and G in their own world doing their own thing. I hope you guys get settled in soon so you can enjoy & make tons of memories in your new home. 🙂
