Cake Smash Photoshoot | Rory’s 1st Birthday Photos

Earlier this Summer, I had the opportunity to photograph Rory’s 1st birthday cake smash photoshoot! It feels like I have known Amanda and Ryan for years, they live in the same town as me, I photographed their engagement session, wedding day, maternity photos, Rory’s newborn session (see below) and finally her first birthday cake smash photoshoot! I absolutely love watching my wedding couples grow into sweet family’s and this couple is no different!

For Rory’s photo shoot, we started out at Croft Farms in Cherry Hill where I was able to get some adorable photos of Rory solo and with mom and dad.

Before Rory happily dove into her cake, we started the session with a few additional photos of Rory and then it was time for cake! I absolutely loved this cake smash photoshoot as her parents gave me full reign on designing her set! I had a vision of whites and greenery and the outfit they put her in complimented my set so well!

Thank you to Amanda and Ryan for continuing to allow my to photograph your beautiful family. Keep scrolling to view some of their newborn photos, Rory has grown and changed so much over this first year! <3
