You know those pictures that parents post on Facebook about the funny reasons their baby is crying – like “I wouldn’t let him drink out of the dog’s water dish”. Can you guess why this little man is so sad in the bottom right picture? Answer: he didn’t want to sit next to his birthday cake! Whenever we sat the cake down in front of him he just started to cry! Poor guy! However in spite of his aversion to his birthday cake, we captured some adorable pictures! He is a cutie pie!! I love his rosy cheeks and his smile is just too much!
When his mom contacted me to plan her baby’s first birthday photography session she wanted to do a beach themed cake smash session which I got so excited about because it was going to be totally adorable!! She brought in a bunch of beach balls, a little surfboard with a “shark bite” taken out of it (my clients are so crafty!) and the most adorable outfits for her little guy. The blue ombre cake was the perfect finishing touch! During the planning stages before the session, she would email me pictures of the outfits, the props and the cake so that I could match up the cake stand, the flag banner and the background to what she was going to bring in.
First Birthday/Cake Smash sessions are so much fun! Your little baby is turning one and it is the perfect time to celebrate and capture this milestone and their big personalities with pictures! Custom themed Cake Smash sessions, like this beach theme, are super fun to plan and make the pictures that much more all about your baby!
