Jessalyn's Cake Smash

My baby is one.
I LOVE everything about this age.
Unsteady steps; their fascination with the tiniest of objects.
Natural curiosity.

However, my heart hurts knowing she's growing way too fast,
and I won't have another baby in my house to snuggle and swaddle and smell.

A couple of weeks ago, we did a cake smash photo shoot for my daughter.  It was kind of a last minute decision; her grandparents ended up being in town so I figured it would be a fun way for them to get to participate in her 1st birthday (we did the photo shoot 10 days before her birthday).  Here's what I threw together.

The banner?  I simply took two dowels that I purchased at Joanns, and wrapped them with this amazing gold glitter washi tape from Modern Tape.

I then took this DIY blush and gold banner kit from Ruffled Paper and tied it across my dowels.  I LOVE the way it turned out.

Her headband is from Bella Tea Bowtique, her ruffle bloomers from Bellapia Clothing Co.

And can we talk about this cake for a minute?
A girl at church; a 17 year old girl - made this gorgeous cake for us.
She is amazing.  And I cannot wait for the day that she opens her own bakery.

Happy Birthday, Baby Doll.  
We love you.
