Cake Smash Photos – Gretchen

Gretchen’s cake smash photos session for her first birthday. We started off with regular portraits before the cake. Of course big sister got to jump in as well! I had so much fun with these girls. First of all, look at baby G’s gorgeous red hair!! I am such a sucker for a red headed baby. & then check out these gorgeous dresses their momma brought in. I love the purple tulle dress on Gretchen & big sister’s pale green dress matched perfectly to pull the two together on this floral backdrop. Speaking of the watercolor floral backdrop, that’s a shower curtain! Crazy, right?! I fell in love with the pattern and while it can be trickier to photograph it is definitely a client favorite at my studio!

Now on to the cake smashing part! This teal ombre rosette pattern cake from Cakes by Brittney smelt as delicious as it looks. Seriously, Brittney makes the most gorgeous and tasty cakes. The set up is a gold sequin table cloth pinned to my studio wall & a white, light teal blue, and pink balloon banner with a pop of confetti. Simple, girly, and perfect for baby G’s cake smash photos. She sure approved of it all! My favorite part was when she dove in face first to take a bite of the cake! Not many babies do that, so when it happens I just MELT! Big sister E hopped in as well to give baby G some encouragement, G licked some off of her fingers but was quickly over it. Evelyn was happy to swipe some frosting though! By the end of it, mom & dad had a pretty much perfect cake still to take home and enjoy. So none of this delicious cake was wasted!
