Thank you to Kate Caito Parties for this beautiful smash cake...sorry it ended up in so many pieces :) I loved the theme Elliot's mom chose- Peter Pan is a perfect theme for a little guy because it is what every mama feels around this age- "never grow up!"
I apologize in advance for the cuteness overload. Parker is such an awesome kiddo…and you have to know I credit his mom with my first photography lesson. We lived together after college and she was always telling everyone to pose "chin down" when I took their photos. Hahaha! Fast forward a few *maybe more than a few* years...I photographed Parker's newborn session. When mom called to tell me he was turning one…I knew exactly what theme to do (little monsters-- since that is the theme of his room). Heather wasted no time in getting in touch with Kate Caito to get some cake ideas down for a monster smash! Kate literally made the cake have fur. Parker did the best job smashing the cake (I have to say, many times babies are not at all interested in smashing a cake, much to their parent's dismay!) I didn't have to worry with this guy. I was finding little bits of green frosting around the studio for days and each time I did, I smiled!
Violet returned for her third photo shoot this year. Her mom, Marissa, is always on the lookout for neat props and thought the dress and mirror would go perfect together for her first birthday/cake smash photos. Kate Caito also worked a miracle and made the awesome rainbow banner in about, oh, an hour for us to use. It matched the cake to a T! Great job smashing, Violet. Can't wait to see what Mommy comes up with next!
Charlotte came to visit her Uncle Weston for Easter, so Weston asked me to do a cake smash while she was visiting. He made the cake and the flowers for the background. Uncle of the year, anyone? I'd say so! Charlotte has an awesome personality- she smiles at the drop of a hat and even though she is really mobile, was content to sit in her tutu and smash that cake! She didn't eat any but I'd say she has the art of destroying cake down pat!
Tommy may not have been feeling well the day of his cake smash, but he powered through (coincidentally, he did the same thing my son did- he enjoyed smearing the frosting but not necessarily eating the cake ha ha!). Nothing makes a little cold fade faster than the magic of sprinkles! Julie, Tommy's mom, made the cake and the banner and his grandmother sewed the outfit. It was the perfect combo of color and creativity and made this session stand out! We also did a few photos of Tommy in a handsome outfit...stay tuned for those.
Hi all,As many of you know, I've been on break from photography while being home with my new little photography subject. He was born six weeks ago and I just feel like I'm getting back to the land of the living. There were a few shoots I did before he was born that I never got to posting, so here are a few little peeks of what I did in January.
