Had so much fun in my studio yesterday with this sweet little guy and his parents during his first birthday and cake smash session!! I knew the Mom wanted a monster theme for this session but what I didn't realize until yesterday - was that she had decided on this theme over a year ago when her sweet little man was born. When I saw his first outfit and blew up the huge #1 blue balloon I knew immediately it would be great with my new white brick background my husband and l had installed the night before. How fun the Mom brought a newborn picture to incorporate into the session as well. Next came the time to decorate my all white set with the beautiful props made with love by Mom - they couldn't have been cuter and more colorful! Did I mention how adorable the monster cake was?? Oh my - the detail on this cake was amazing and I couldn't wait to photograph this little guy digging in!! His outfit for the cake smash couldn't have been any cuter and he didn't waste anytime getting to it and totally enjoying his first ever taste of cake!! I loved every part of this session and give Kelly such credit for all her thoughtful planning - from props to outfits, balloons and the cake which made this such a special, fun and enjoyable session. Here's some of my favorites!!
