Birthdays are a big deal but most especially when you turn one! Better celebrate as a dinosaur and get cake smash pictures! But first we made sure to get some pictures of Little Reno in another cute outfit before he got frosting and cake all over himself!
I actually met Reno’s parents a few years ago when they booked me as their wedding photographer! So when Erica asked if I’d do Reno’s one year old pictures, I couldn’t have been more excited!
Oh his adorable little face in this picture!!
I just LOVED that Erica decided on a dinosaur theme for his one year old cake smash pictures! Not only did she bring a few different dino themed outfits but a few of his stuffed dinosaurs, the wooden dinosaur cutouts and a RAWR sign!
When Erica and I were discussing the best location for his session, I suggested a place that had a “prehistoric” feel to it. Erica loved the idea of Delphi Falls because not only does it have the waterfall but it also has some ferns, which for some reason I always associate with the prehistoric. 🙂
And then Reno’s parents changed him into his one year old dinosaur birthday outfit! Oh my gosh, it was so adorable!
The Cake Smash
And then!… it was time for the cake to come out!
At first he wasn’t quite sure what to think, tentatively reaching for it to find out what it was.
Erica came over after a few minutes and made sure he tasted a bit of frosting. Once that happened… well… the rest of the pictures say it all!
“Hey guys, have you TRIED this stuff?!”
Oh my gosh, then my favorite thing happened…
And he’s SO proud of himself!
In case you missed it in the picture above, I didn’t want you to miss the dino tail… I can’t handle the cuteness!
“Oh wow, there is so much frosting on my hands. Maybe I should wipe them off in the grass.”
Happy first birthday Little Reno! You’re the cutest little dinosaur ever! I can’t wait to see what you look like dressed up like a ring bearer for mommy and daddy’s wedding in October!
