One of my favorite things to photograph is a cake smash. They are so fun to plan and put together for a one year old birthday portrait. The resulting images not only make great memories, but if timed right, about six weeks early, they can be ready to use for that first birthday invitation or after for those custom thank you cards.
Here are a few of my son and his cake smash session. Believe it or not the clean up isn’t too bad either if you plan ahead. And if you already read my post about Pinterest and baking I make a disclaimer that I did not make this cake. However, I did make one for my daughters cake smash a few years ago that turned out ok. Back then I only had her so it was much easier to do.
