Balloons and birthday cakes are so much fun!!!
I always marvel as an Austin baby photographer at how fast my little newborn clients grow into these precious babies so full of laughter, love and personality. She was such a joy at her cake smash. It’s so much fun to watch them I have to remember to take the pictures too! She had as much fun with the balloons as she did smashing her tasty cake so I’m not sure which was her favorite. Not all babies love to smash a cake so I advise my parents to let them smash a few cupcakes before their big day. Sweet Finley didn’t have any reservations, however, about digging into her cake and loved every crumb!
Her cake really was beautiful and I absolutely loved her session designed in the pink and gold theme her mom chose. Cake smashes are a great opportunity to celebrate their growing personality, just let them have fun and not necessarily worry about that “perfect” shot. I find these images are often some of the most treasured. My goal in cake smash sessions, as with any of my sessions, is to work closely with mom and dad to design a session that truly reflects this moment in their precious little person’s life. The sky is the limit with a cake smash and can be simple and elegant or whimsical and fun. I am really lucky to have found an amazing baker at Sugar Love Bake Shop! She is so sweet to to work with me on my cake smashes and really can make visions come to life. They are as delicious as they are beautiful!
Happy birthday Finley! It was such a joy to capture your sweet smiles this year!
