CAKE SMASH!

We did R's 1-year session a couple of weeks ago but wanted a cake smash to be the finale of her "Baby's First Year" album. She came back this week for a cake-only shoot. I have only done one other cake smash session before and it was for my own son two years ago. Unfortunately he was not too into the idea, cried the whole time, and I didn't really get any good shots. Back then I was not tuned in to the concept of seamless paper (which can be cut and tossed), so I had the whole studio floor tarped in clear plastic. What a pain in the neck! R's session was much easier than that, and she loved the cake her mom made for her (ummm, yeah A, is there nothing you can't do??). The session ended up with R getting rinsed off in the bathtub, with was clearly not her favorite part of the event. I would have photographed that part, but my hands were a necessary component of the cleanup process. LOL!
