So I may have gone all out on this session but why not, it is my last baby and I never got to do something so fun with my other children as this whole Smash the Cake Fad was not in when we had our last daughter who is now 7 years old. I would say these sessions started to get popular in about the last 4-5 years or so. They are fun. Why not have beautiful photos of your 1 year old baby on their birthday which is one of the biggest milestones in the first year of baby’s life. So many changes between newborn and 1 year old, if you are going to document any of baby’s milestones, it has to be this one. And then what a fun piece to add into a session… Baby with her first cake of many cakes to come in her life.
Now, I did think that our baby would get right in there and smash her cake however she did not, but this did not surprise me as I would say on average only about %40 of babies will even be interested in touching the cake. What you don’t see when you look at the smash the cake photos are the babies that cried for their whole session, the babies that didn’t want to touch the cake, the babies that didn’t want to get dirty, the babies that we couldn’t pull off mom and dad and the babies that were having nothing to do with a smash the cake photo session lol! However needless to say, these sessions are super cute. We never know what baby will do so every session is a guessing game!
We did however get some amazing shots of our baby girl before her cake as well as with her cake, just not those photos you see where baby is smashing and playing with the cake! I also absolutely LOVE the Vintage Dollcake Dress that she is wearing. This dress was handmade in Australia and bought specifically for my baby girls special day. And then her beautiful Gold Sequined Romper was bought from Little Choco Pink in the USA!
Again a huge thank you to our wonderful cake lady Sara who always makes the most exquisite cakes for these sessions! For more information on our Smash the Cake Sessions you can visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/codiophotography or our website www.codiophotography.com
