1st Birthday Photo Session & Cake Smash | Southern Oregon Baby Photographer

Happy Birthday, Tucker & Grant!

Meet Tucker and Grant. They are identical twin’s who just celebrated their first birthday. The boys are my second set of identical twins, and even though they look the same, their personalities are each their own.

Grant is the more verbal of the two and was much more content to just sit for his session. He also gave so many smiles! He has his bottom LEFT tooth coming in, while Tucker was just cutting his RIGHT.

Grant also refused to hold the letters that spelled out O N E.

I just got in this awesome vintage Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt top off of eBay and was so excited to use it for their session.


Tucker is more physical than Grant and definitely wanted to MOVE! He loved playing with the O N E letters and wanted to Army-man crawl all over the place.

I sent their mom some cute clothing options from Osh Kosh for inspiration and she bought them both adorable khaki pants with old fashion suspenders and button-down, collared shirts. I dug through my hat stash and luckily had matching driving caps that fit them. I kept Tucker in blue throughout the session, and Grant had a white shirt with khaki driving cap and his cake was green. I suspect that their family is going to have a hard time remembering who’s who down the road so I try to keep it easy to identify them later.

I always ask clients if there is a space or wall in their home where they are considering wall art. I have a nifty iPad app called Shoot & Sell and plugged the image my client sent me in and created this wall display for their new home. This takes the guess work out of choosing prints for you wall and you’ll know exactly how much wall space it will take up, but also how the images will look together.

Their mom originally wanted some 5×7’s of the boys spelling out the O N E and a few from their cake smash, but wasn’t sure yet what she’d do with them or where she’d put them. I suggested a collage print so all the images were together and really to display.

She chose her 3 favorite images of the letter images and 3 from the cake smash and I created this collage during our ordering appointment. It will be printed as a 12 x 12 mounted on white styrene with a UV coating. It will be amazing framed, but could also sit on a self as is.
