Happy birthday!!! : Nampa Idaho baby photographer

Stella came into the world one year ago today and we instantly fell so in love with her. She has blessed our lives so much in the past 12 months. How lucky we are to have her in our home.

Here she is a year ago.
I decided it would be fun to do a cake smash shoot for her birthday. My super talented friend Candice who can do just about anything, made her adorable cake. Thank you Candice. It turned out perfectly.
The kids loved watching Stella destroy the cake. She wasn't quite sure what to think in the beginning. At first she started trying to pick off the polka dots and then decided it would be fun to eat the cake and even more fun to smoosh it. She ended up having a blast.

Laura these are so beautiful! I can't stop smiling at them. My daughter is 10 months old, and I am so excited for her to turn 1. I wish you were closer so I could have you shoot her "smash cake" fun!

Such adorable pictures. She's such a cutie! Can you tell me what program you used to make the 1st birthday storyboard?

I used photoshop cs3 and an MCP storyboard action to create that storyboard.
