Eugene, Oregon baby photographer: Jayne is ONE!



Welcome back—and happy birthday, Jayne!

Jayne recently turned one year old and made a return visit to my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon for a birthday photography and cake smash session. This was the third time she’s been in my studio, and I have loved all the opportunities to photograph her in different stages over this first year of her life. I hope that in the coming years I will have many more chances to work with her. She’s an absolute delight! She is such a happy baby—and super tall! Every time I see her I can’t believe how much she’s grown. I envy her the gorgeous long legs she’s going to have when she grows up.

We had a wonderful time with our cake smash. I don’t think it could have gone any better. Jayne love love loved her cake! I’ve done lots of cake smashes and seen lots of different reactions from kiddos, but I have honestly never seen a baby quite so delighted with cake before. Sometimes the texture and sugary sweetness are a little too much for some babies, but Jayne thought everything about it was fantastic. She must have a serious sweet tooth—and no problem with getting a little messy! It was a blast to watch her having such a good time, and I’m glad I got to be the one to capture her birthday celebration and that contagious grin of hers! Doesn’t she look great in a party hat and frosting?

We used lots of sparkles and glam for the cake smash portion—we were celebrating, after all—then toned it down for the rest of the baby photography session, but we kept a pink theme throughout to tie it all together. I love her cute little pink dress. And she looks so cozy with that patchwork quilt and her stuffed animal friends keeping her company.

We also got some more casual shots, a prime example of which is below. I can’t get over how cute this kid is! She looks so chill and relaxed in this picture, just kicking back and flashing a grin at the camera. And what a sense of style! I think babies look so cute in jeans—maybe because the similarity to adult clothes accentuates how young and adorable they are. If only jeans kept having that same effect as we got older, right?

It was so much fun to have this sweet kiddo in my Eugene, Oregon photography studio again, and to celebrate her special day with a baby photography session. I love spending time with Jayne! Her happiness and love of life is good for my soul—and absolutely infectious! She is like a ray of sunshine in our rainy Oregon weather. Hopefully the photographs of this cutie have been a bright spot in your day as well. Enjoy them, and keep an eye out for more. I think a little gal as cute as this is destined to spend more quality time in front of a camera!

  1. Oh my goodness! What a sweet post about my sweet girl! We absolutely love our pictures. And I think she did so well with the cake because of your advice to give her a little bit of a cake a few times before the session. I know all of us will treasure all the special pics you got in her first year!!!

  2. I also love the pink dress, it is so "girly". I had not seen the one of her in the jeans--cute! I would have such a hard time picking a favorite from that day. She is the happiest baby--always has that smile for you. Thank you for the wonderful pictures we have now for our memories. She is growing up way too fast!
