Cake smash sessions are all the rage nowadays. Parents want to capture their child's first experience eating cake, which can be quite amusing and definitely fun to capture! I've found that some babies dig right in, while others are more cautious and not as comfortable getting messy. It's cute to see how they will respond. Each baby is so different! I love working with babies and especially look forward to these sessions! I always start off by capturing images of them in mom's favorite outfit or two, then some of them in their "birthday suit" which is adorable, then we finish with the cake smash photos.
I know they'll get really messy when they do this part so this is always the last set of photos we do! We work as long as baby is comfortable, capturing all of their cute expressions and their tiny features that change in the blink of an eye (tiny feet, messy little hands, eyelashes, etc).
Sometimes parents do not prefer to do the cake smash, but still want to capture their little one's milestone birthday. I have a wide selection of natural looking backdrops and props to create beautiful first birthday images you will love.
This little guy had the cutest personality and even posed for me! :)
As you can tell, he had a lot of fun during his session!
If you or someone you know has a baby that is turning one, be sure to send my information along so I can capture this special time! As always, thank you for visiting my site and taking a look at what we've been busy doing at Kathy White Photography. I look forward to hearing from you soon to plan YOUR child's birthday portraits!
Hats off to cake smash sessions! I think Lincoln approves! ;)
