What do you get when you combine Parisian décor, a white swan, a tiara, and LOTS of pink flowers? The perfect backdrop for a beautiful Swan Princess photo shoot. I can’t believe it, but this little beauty is already turning one!
Milana Turns One!
Milana is the sweetest little girl. As soon as she came into the studio, her big smile and bright eyes lit up the room! I knew right away that photographing this little bundle of energy would be fun. And I was right. She waved her hands in the air at us, explored the set, and modeled her best poses. Milana was ready to celebrate her first birthday!
When it was time for the cake – beautifully decorated in layered shades of pink with a white swan on top – she thought it was just another decoration. And I had to agree, the work of art was almost too pretty to eat. But as soon as we showed her that it was food, she agreed to taste a few bites. This little beauty must have decided that cake smashing is not very ladylike, so she proceeded to just explore and pose a little more.
Time for a Cake Smash
Each baby is different. Some love to squish and smash the cake, some eat it by the handful, others poke and prod, while some ignore the mysterious frosted thing all together! Milana mostly avoided it – she was too busy being the star of the show. And her mother provided the perfect wardrobe for her little one to sparkle! I loved all of the delicate lace, tulle, and pearls, and baby Milana did, too!
Since Baby Girl has a fall birthday, we added in a photo of her next to some neutrally-colored pumpkins that matched the Parisian backdrop. Dressed in a black kitty-cat outfit and sequined beret, this simple Halloween-esque photo is one of my favorites! It provides just a touch of holiday flair without going overboard, and it’s still as elegant as ever for this pretty baby girl.
After the studio portraits, Mom, Dad, and baby Milana took the session outside for a few family portraits. The three of them look so lovely together, and Milana’s smile was even bigger when she was wrapped in her parents’ arms.

Helping you document your baby’s growth is my greatest joy as a child photographer. After raising my own kiddos, I know how fast this precious stage goes by, and as parents, we want to be able to look back on those sweet cheeks and toothy grins forever. Schedule a session with me today!
