Clara is 1! | SWEET & SIMPLE IN-HOME CAKE SMASH SESSION | Kanata, Ottawa Family Photographer

Turning one is always so much fun! It’s a milestone that everyone is so excited about. The best part is probably tasting the cake, sometimes for the very first time! Traditionally, the cake smash session goes one way or another: the little one loves the cake and doesn’t want to stop eating, or he/she wants nothing to do with it.

Clara was very lady like and decided to nibble on the cake and take her time. It’s like she was trying on purpose not to make any mess. Things changed when her brother Rory joined and showed her all the little tricks of cake smashing. It was so beautiful to watch them both have fun. Yesterday, it was the National Siblings Day and I thought of this session right away, because it was evident how much they mean to one another and how blessed they are to have a sibling.

I hope you enjoy this gallery as much as I and Clara’s parents did! That’s what Allison, the mom, wrote to me and shared as a Facebook review after receiving all the images:

“Ina did a combined family and cake smash photo session for us and despite having serious kids, Ina was able to capture so many smiles! Ina was very go-with-the-flow and relaxed to help put us at ease, while still being professional and able to guide us for what would work best for lighting, positions, etc. She has provided us with so many family memories and we hope to work with her again.”

I couldn’t have received a better thank you!
