1st Birthday Cake Smash Pictures | Columbus Ohio Baby Photographer

Birthday Girl

Emma’s mom is a friend of mine and I was so excited when she contacted me about 1st birthday pictures. I had the privilege of taking her newborn pictures a year ago and I loved seeing how much she had changed and grown. Mom chose a unicorn theme for her party and pictures. Jumbo cupcake by Miranda Huey of Miranda Made.

Evenflo ExerSaucer Review | Columbus Ohio Photographer

Product Description

The Evenflo ExerSaucer Triple Fun Active Learning Center, Life in the Amazon is a playmat, exersaucer, and activity table in one. It features 11 age appropriate toys, some of which include lights and music for added entertainment. There is a three way height adjustment that grows with baby. This toy also features a 360 degree rotating seat that includes a removable, machine washable pad.

My Product Review

My parents wanted to get our son something for Christmas that would grow with him and that he could play with for several months. So, we did some research and decided to ask for the Evenflo ExerSaucer Triple Fun Active Learning Center. I am so very grateful that they purchased it for him. What a great gift it has been!

Baby-Photography-Columbus-Ohio-Baby-Photographer

We already had a playmat when they purchased it for him, so we skipped that stage of the toy and moved right on to the exersaucer. When we first put him in it at around 4 months, he had no idea what to do with it. The first toy he noticed and began playing with was the musical crocodile. He loves being able to pick up the pieces and make noise with them. I love that when he throws them down, they don’t fall on the floor (they are attached by a short ribbon).

He also enjoys starring at the three birds, but since they don’t really do much, that’s about all he does with them.

Now that he is a little older (6 months) he really likes the hanging butterflies (although they hit him in the head frequently) and he also likes chewing on the wings of the dragonfly.

His all time favorite part of the exersaucer though is jumping. My only complaint with this aspect of the toy is that it is very loud. I wish there was a way for the manufacturer to make is quieter.

Due to my son’s age, we have not yet used this toy as an activity table. Future review to come.

Overall, we love the Evenflo ExerSaucer Triple Fun Active Learning Center, Life in the Amazon.

6 Month Milestone Session | Baby Pictures | Columbus Ohio Photographer

I went to college with Isaac’s mom and I have been so blessed to stay in contact with her over the last several years since then. She was so kind to allow me to photograph her first baby when I was just getting into photography and now I have the privilege of photographing her second baby. Isaac’s 6 month photo session took place at Inniswood Metro Garden’s in Westerville, Ohio.

She is one of my milestone babies so I can’t wait to see her again for her 1st Birthday pictures. Her 6 month session took place at Homestead Park in Hilliard, Ohio.

1st Birthday Cake Smash Session | Columbus Ohio Photographer

1st Birthday Pictures| Cake Smash Session | Columbus Ohio Photographer

I started photographing this little guy when he was around 4 months old and just starting to hold his head up during tummy time. I was blessed to photograph him again at one of my spring mini sessions when he was around 6 months old and sitting up on his own. It was such a joy to see this happy little boy again for his 1st birthday cake smash session. His cake smash session took place at my in-home studio in Galloway, Ohio.

I originally met this family for some family pictures earlier this spring and I was delighted to find out mom was expecting. I was so excited when I received an email from her a few months later asking if I could get them in for a newborn session.  Baby Owen was such a dream to work with and I hope to photograph this beautiful family again in the future.
