This little monster cake smash theme was so perfect for baby O’s first birthday session. We started off with some regular portraits, which I always include in cake smash photo sessions. Baby O sat so properly in my big white chair prop (another client favorite!). He was a little unsure of photos but his cute smirks show he was having a good time 🙂
His momma sent me a picture of this cake she ordered for his little monster cake smash & that she wanted something more simple for the background. Using Savage Seamless Sky Blue photography paper I attached a matching balloon banner in blues & orange, added some twinkle lights and tissue puffs to match. Threw in the O N E letters and matching confetti to pull it all together. I prefer using savage seamless paper because it is very thick and not only photographs well but is such easy clean up afterwards! Especially when I get a messy baby like this dude. Once he figured out the cake and started to dig in, he loved smacking it and frosting was flying everywhere! Some even reached my ceiling. We were laughing so hard at him just playing away, it was great!
After cake was flung every where we ended the session with a little bucket bath. Baby O rocked his little monster cake smash photo session and I had a blast celebrating his first birthday with him! He had a crazy first year of life, this milestone was a special moment to freeze in time for his parents. I know they cherish these memories.
