This is why we – of course – decided to do a DIY halfway-to-one donut photoshoot at home.

Luckily, it was easy to do and ended with a delicious snack for us and her! But, if you’re not ready to let your little one have a taste of something so sweet, opt for a different or even homemade donut rather than store-bought.

While the donuts we from the local Krispy Kreme, everything else was pretty easy to put together!

All in all, the end result was amazing! It was just what we were looking for and both she and I had so much fun.

It was such a simple thing DIY to do that created sweet memories that I’ll be able to keep forever – and show her later as she grows up!
