Happy Thanksgiving! A Pumpkin Pie Smash at our Saratoga Springs Studio: NY Cake Smash Photographer

Who says that birthdays can only be celebrated with a cake smash?
How about a PUMPKIN PIE SMASH?

This Thanksgiving-themed birthday session at our Saratoga Springs portrait studio was the perfect way to celebrate the season for sweet little Riley.  With her first birthday coming up soon, this baby girl got to enjoy an alternative to our traditional cake smash session with a pumpkin pie!

Of course, I can't resist a handmade one-of-a-kind backdrop, and gold calligraphy has always been my favorite.  "Gobble 'til you wobble" was the perfect saying for this very fun birthday photo session!  Combined with a few simple fall accents and an adorable outfit, Riley was the star of the show for her birthday session! 

And just look at that tiny little tooth poking through her smile!

I always prep parents before a cake smash session that some babies love their cake, and others need a little more convincing.  But don't worry -- I have so many tricks to get babies interested in their cake, and we're always able to capture the most adorable portraits!

Sometimes giving the baby a spoon is all it takes because it's something that they're familiar with and that they've enjoyed using at home lately.  A tiny silver spoon did just the trick for our birthday girl, and she went to town on her pie with that spoon!
