Winnie the Pooh First Birthday Cake Smash

I met this sweet little girl last July for her newborn session.  I have loved watching Emma grow over the past year and also getting to know her mom and dad more.

For her first birthday, mom wanted a vintage Winnie the Pooh theme.  Of course having it outside in the "Hundred Acre Woods" would be an absolute must, but finding the perfect location took a little work.  Living in a wooden area already, I knew I could find a location that would be easy to get to and have the best backdrop for this special occasion.  

Enter Lake Ridge Marina Park.  

If you live in the area and you've never been to this park, you must go this weekend!  So many things to do and see and so many trails!

We found this amazing trail which was just perfect for a portrait in a basket with balloons.  Then about 900 feet in, we came across the ultimate spot for her cake smash!

This beautiful cake was created by Sweet Trix & Treats!  The attention to detail on this cake was absolutely divine and was exactly what mom envisioned. And according to mom and dad, tasted just as good!

Emma's grandmother even made this beautiful dress that matched her setup perfectly! I might have her make my daughter a few dresses - this is so adorable!!

I am so honored to have been a part of such a special day in Emma's first year!  Happy birthday, sweet girl!  May your second year be just as wonderful as you are!
