At Photography by Jodi Lynn & Co. we photograph cake smash session quite frequently. But they have never been as emotional for us at the studio as this one. This cake smash session was extra special because it was for Jodi Lynn’s little girl. We can’t believe how fast this last year just flown by. It seems like only yesterday that Jodi Lynn announced she was expecting!

Happy First Birthday Miss A!

This session left not only Jodi Lynn teary eyed but all of us here at the studio. We see so many babies blossom from their newborn session to their cake smash. But we don’t get to be as involved with the day to day like we are with this sweet little girl. We had so much fun celebrating Miss A’s first birthday and loved how her portraits turned out!

One of the many reasons that our professional photographers love their work as newborn baby and child photographers is the satisfaction they get from helping our clients document their family’s special moments. Especially when it’s their second or third child photographed at our studio. The connection Traci and Jodi Lynn create with our family clients is truly one of a kind.

Sweet and Happy First Year Cake Smash Session

First birthday cake smash photo shoots are so hot right now! For the uninitiated, a cake smash session literally involves your kiddo ‘smashing’ a beautifully iced birthday cake in celebration of this all-important milestone. The magic happens when your little one gets truly and laughably stuck into the cake. Jodi Lynn or Traci snap away, taking photographs to record the fun… and the chaos! Rather than digging straight into the cake, a first birthday session at Photography by Jodi Lynn & Co starts with your photographer photographing your baby dressed in a cute outfit. This milestone in their life is so much fun because their true personalities are starting to show and these traditional portraits are great for family and friends to have.

If you asked us which type of kid’s photo session we have the most fun at, it would be a Cake Smash!  First of all, the First Birthday Cake Smash marks a big milestone in a baby’s life!  In some ways that first year goes by quickly and at other times parents can say the days and nights dragged on forever (at least the sleepless ones!).  The arrival of the First Birthday is filled with excitement and joy!  And after photographing them since their newborn session (or their momma’s maternity session) we love getting to spend this time with our one year old client’s because their true personalities are just beginning to show!

Minnie Mouse Themed Cake Smash in Phoenix

At a Photography by Jodi Lynn “First Birthday Cake Smash” Session, we always start with traditional portraits.  We believe in having that perfect portrait of this age which really show how much they have changed and how far they have come from birth to one year old!  After these classic portraits comes the mess!  We save the cake smash for the second half of the session and there is always laughter and sometimes tears (but we promise they’re tears from the laughter!). We love adding your little one’s favorite character or birthday party theme into their session like Miss P’s sweet pink Minnie Mouse outfit that she also wore to her birthday celebration.

Cake smash photography sessions are so popular, and why wouldn’t they be? Everyone’s favorite part of a baby’s birthday is watching mom and dad bring out the cake and see how much of a mess the birthday boy or girl will make. So why not capture great portraits of that fun moment that embraces the carefree fun of just being a kid!

First birthday portraits are so much fun, and when you have twins it’s twice the giggles and twice the love! These cuties came to the studio in coordinating orange and blue suspenders and bow ties and we couldn’t get over how adorable they were for their cake smash photography session. Check out the fun below! 🙂

Welcome to Le Boudoir Studio’s blog! We are excited to announce that Jodi Lynn is expecting her baby soon — March 8th, to be exact! She and her husband are busy getting ready to welcome their baby girl, and their daughter is bouncing with excitement to have a little sister.

During the last several months, Jodi Lynn has been busy with all the preparations that must be done along the way when you’re expecting. She has been reacquainted with all of the world-changing effects of bringing a new life into the world. From preparing the baby room to satisfying her cravings — apple fritters and anything pickled — there is a lot to take in and do before she and her family get to meet their little one.

Additionally, she and her husband have decided to use the expertise of a midwife for a VBAC delivery — vaginal birth after cesarean. Jodi Lynn is excited to experience giving birth to her daughter naturally, and to have the expertise of a midwife by her side during the birthing process: a midwife’s professional expertise can be a true asset before, during, and after the birth.

With a March 8th due date quickly approaching, the energy around our Scottsdale studio is one full of excitement and support for Jodi Lynn and her family in welcoming the newest member to their family. With this in mind, there is some business around the studio to be aware of:
