Baby Ben / Precious baby and cake smash photography in Ashburn, VA / Stephanie Honikel Photography

I remember this little guy as if it were yesterday. I took these images in Bremen, Northern Germany, but would like to share these with everyone who is interested in baby and cake smash photography in Northern Virginia. I have recently relocated form Germany and I am looking forward to offering maternity, newborn and baby photography sessions to clients in Northern Virginia in the new year. When I started building my portfolio in Germany, Ben was my very first newborn that I photographed. The images are not terrible, but I’d rather not share those anymore ? Lucky me, his parents hired me to take his one year portraits back in August. We decided on a cake smash shooting since it seems to be a big deal here in the United States. We wanted to give it a try. I love cake smash sessions. I think they are fun. Ben, however, wasn’t really into the cake. Blame it on the confectionary? Maybe. I did capture a few good shots of him tasting and smashing the cake and I am sure he will have a blast looking at the images when he turns eighteen? Sabrina and Martin, thank you so much for letting me take your son’s first year portraits and for being open to the cake smash idea. Although he wasn’t crazy about the cake, I think he had a pretty good time. I did for sure ☺️ baby photography ashburn virginia_stephanie honikel photographybaby photography ashburn virginia_stephanie honikel photography1baby photography ashburn virginia_stephanie honikel photography2baby photography ashburn virginia_stephanie honikel photography3baby photography ashburn virginia_stephanie honikel photography6baby photography ashburn virginia_stephanie honikel photography4 Cake smash shooting Ashburn Virginia_stephanie honikel photography Achim
