Niko turned 1 year old last March 2019. I did his 1 year photoshoot a week before our flight to the Philippines.
The photoshoot was done in our apartment’s garage (yes, I emphasized the word apartment because people might get the wrong idea that we have our own garage. Haha!)
I used a blue faux leather mat I bought at Lamara for 15 SRD per meter as a background. The number ONE banner was made from cardboard papers with the color dark blue, yellow and red to match the Superman theme.
The Superman logo was made of felt paper and was stitched unto the blue t-shirt. I sewed the red cape myself. It was actually the first time I sew something using a sewing machine (and it motivated me to buy my own machine!) The Superman neck tie worn by Teddy was made of cardstock papers, too, the same one I used for the banner.
It was a fun photoshoot because my friends are available at that time to distract Niko and make him smile. 🤣 🤣 🤣
It was supposed to be a cake smash, but unfortunately (*sob and another *sob), the cake was damaged during transport. Okay, I don’t even want to talk about it. Only the icing was left standing, so I just put it on top of a re-purposed cake stand. 😫 😫 😫 Well, I don’t want to call it a cake stand because it is more of a bucket-sponge-holder kind of thing that my husband uses when cleaning his car, but I called dibs on it the moment I saw it.
Well, aside from the failed cake smash, I think I got a lot of nice photos.
Here is the final photo that I used for Niko’s birthday cake and invitation.
It was a Happy Birthday indeed because we were able to spend it with our family and relatives in the Philippines.
