Dylan Turns One! {NJ Birthday Cake Smash Photographer} - Kristen Boylan Photography, Bridgewater, NJ

Well...this feels like yesterday. ;)

Today I'm sharing one of my favorite birthday/cake smash sessions...ever! How incredible are the smiles on this family? I mean FOR REAL. The first photo in this post is one of my all time favorites, and if this doesn't show you how much fun it is to be one, I don't know what would convince you! (Does it convince anyone else how awesome it would be to be tan right now too? Ahh...summer!) I know I'm always talking about all the things I love about this job, but smiles like this are number one for me and the reason I even do this in the first place. I know it probably seems from the outside like this job is easy...just get a nice camera and you're good to go (IF ONLY! haha)...but I promise you...it is far far away from easy.  Long hours of learning, culling, editing, e-mailing, prepping, endless self-doubt, and that doesn't even include the actual picture-taking (the best part!! ;)), but THIS...THIS is what makes it all worth it! My amazing clients and their even more amazing smiles!! (Even better when my client happens to also be a great friend! :) Our babies had a blast playing together for a little bit before the session!)

This shoot included SO many things I loved too. Let's start with this incredibly amazing hydrangea...which I was drooling over as soon as I pulled in the driveway! I even contemplated asking if I could rent it out for future sessions. Dylan's grandma was a little worried I might try to dig it up and take it home with me in the car! ;) Even better though, later on in the shoot that same grandma could be found twerking behind me to make Dylan laugh. I know you're thinking...wait, Kristen...that was surely a typo? A twerking grandma? Yes, I know. AMAZING. I also tried to hire her to come with me on future shoots. :) She was AWESOME at getting smiles out of this little guy...and his parents! :) Then add in some adorable outfits, a crazy cute wagon, mommy and daddy love, and ending with eating cake in the grass?? Yes to all of it! I loved that Dylan's mom kept his smash simple and sweet with the best background around! :) EXACTLY my style. I also love any cake smash that ends with the baby dumping the cake and passing out in the grass. ;) My kinda kid! Cake smash success? Absolutely! :)

Enjoy!!! Big thanks to his parents for letting me capture these sweet moments for them! :)
