Walt & Whitney's 1st Birthday Photo Shoot + Cake Smash

Walt & Whitney will officially be turning ONE in one week - January, 14! It's hard not to want to capture every major moment of these babies lives because 1.) they are twins 2.) they are my last babies. Check out their 1st birthday photos below + details of the shoot.

I was fortunate enough to win a photo shoot from McKenzie Coronado Photography on Instagram, and I chose the babies birthday for the shoot. We collaborated with One Eleven East for the INSANELY beautiful backdrop, Little Blue Olive for the adorable sequin party hats, and Mindy's Bakeshop for the delicious cakes.

I decided to go with bright colors and simple sprinkle cakes because I had matching outfits from Hanna Andersson I had purchased a few months ago. I handmade the pom pom garland which took quite a bit of time, but I love the pop of color it added (although it wasn't my intention for them to be tangled and the babies to carry them).

My mouth literally dropped when I saw these photos. If you've ever done a photo shoot you know how much work it takes prepping, but it's all worth it in the end. We took all of these in less than 45 minutes. You don't have much time with babies before they start losing their minds.

When it came to the cake smash, I was laughing so hard when Whitney dove right in and Walt was very apprehensive. Whitney immediately tried to pick up her cake, and was basically trying to dead lift it. It was hilarious!  Then she gave up and decided to sit on it.
