This beautiful, smiley little girl turns one this weekend! We recently set up a fun cake smash and first birthday portrait session at my house for Nekesa’s First Birthday Party Invitations. Nekesa loves kittens! For her birthday party, her super talented and creative mama decided to make a “Kitten” themed birthday party. We had a blast creating a customized set and props for this adorable session.
First, Nekesa arrived via hot air balloon. She traveled far and wide to make it here. I think she must have passed through the Rockies in Aspen, because she was wearing an adorable little ski chalet styled outfit for her balloon ride
Next, to get warmed up to our kitten theme, we figured Nekesa would like to play with some balls of yarn! She was even cuter than a kitten when she started kicking around the balls of yarn!
We decided to take the kitten theme one step further. All kittens love playing with fish, so why not give Nekesa a bowl full of Goldfish to taste, smash, and play with! This was her first time tasting goldfish and boy did she love them! Welcome to the club Nekesa!
Finally, after another wardrobe change and a set change, we got down to business with our fun cake smash! I went to a cute new cake shop in our neighborhood called Oakleaf Cakes, to pick up this perfectly matching cake! It not only looked beautiful, but tasted delicious too! Nekesa dove right in with her hands, arms, and feet! She loved it! Have the happiest of birthday’s little one!
In case you missed it, here are some of the fun images we captured with Nekesa and her family on Martha’s Vineyard this summer! Don’t you just love her smile?!
I just love this family and how they know how to have fun and take time to be silly!
