We always start with a few portraits before the messy part of a one year birthday session. He had a lot of fun crawling around to snuggle his parents. Eventually we brought him over to the balloons which was so adorable to watch him play and bounce them around. As soon as we were at the cake smash part he was certainly curious enough about the cake but after the first nibble he just wasn’t sure if that was something he should be eating. I know we giggled when he kept pushing it away and then there was a brief break after his sad face expression. But alas, we kept at it and he really did get into it eventually and successfully made a big mess that he was quite proud of.
(In case you were wondering, it was another delicious cake by Bella Bella Cupcakes) A cake smash session is a great way to make this milestone fun and memorable. Are you thinking about a special cake smash session for your just turning one year old? Email me for details and availability.
