Are you ready for some cuteness overload? Colin is here today to bring it. Jack and I took a quick trip Sunday evening to Earl Brown Park in Deland to celebrate Colin’s first birthday with a cake smash session! His racecar themed first birthday combined with his little outfits just had my heart swooning.
Jack and I first met the Pattin family last November when Kristie reached out to me for a maternity session for their first child! We automatically fell in love with the couple due to the fact that they were from my small hometown in New Jersey. Plus, their personalities were so chill and fun! In December, we finally got to meet little Colin. He was the absolute cutest Santa baby! I loved watching him grow up this year via social media and was so excited to see the crew again.
Colin took after his dad’s profession and had a racecar theme for his first birthday. His decor consisted of red and checkered flag balloons, a red banner, a checkered flag cake, and an actual tire. Kristie and Nick were so prepared!!! They even had personalized “Pit Crew” shirts. Colin was a little shy at first, but who can blame him? This pandemic has made it nearly impossible to see anyone. Don’t worry, though. He now has two new BFFs (Jack being number one between the two of us). Colin was so dapper in his little outfits and loved holding on to his suspenders like a little man. I just adore this cutie!!
We were all a bit weary about how Colin would react to cake because honestly? Everyone is SO different. Colin absolutely LOVED it and went straight for a bite. By the end of the cake smash portion of the session, he was covered from head to toe, and smiling so much. He had the perfect cake smash session and the perfect weather for it too!
I seriously cannot believe it’s been a year already, and that this is our last newborn to turn one! Kristie and Nick, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with you and get to know you all over the past year. Fingers crossed for more sessions to come soon! Take a peek into Colin’s racecar first birthday and cake smash session at Earl Brown Park in Deland!
