Balloon Filled First Birthday Portraits

Balloon Filled First Birthday Portraits and Film

Little Ones by Laura wanted to get more creative than the typical one year birthday cake smash session, and this lovely balloon filled portrait session was the beautiful result. This was such a sweet way to capture the fun and personality of this little boy in a unique setting. Read below for details about the shoot from Laura, then stop by the full gallery for more!

From Laura Zander: "From welcoming a new little one to the family to celebrating a milestone, with a few borrowed moments I create an artistic narrative that shares part of their story through not only images but also a portrait film/video. I wanted to create an alternative to the typical one year birthday cake smash. I imagined my studio set covered in white balloons and even ordered a special '1' sugar cookie for him to snack on (less mess than a cake). The resulting imagery and video celebrated his first birthday and captured his personality perfectly."
