This little babe came into Alana Taylor Photography for her 1st birthday cake smash session.
There was lots of smiles, lots of laughter, lots of pink and lots of cake!
Just a little note for the families that are coming in for a cake smash photo shoot:
All parents hope that their little one will dive in and make a mess of the cake. That’s what you are paying for, right? But that doesn’t always happen and let me tell you up front that’s okay. You know your child the best so I suggest to all my clients to practice with their little one at home with smashing up a cake and making a mess. This process is really important as some little ones do freak out if they have never done this sort of thing before. Not every child wants to dive right in and make a mess no matter what tricks we try. It’s important to know that even if they don’t turn their cake into a gooey pile of crumbs, I am still able to catch fun images of them poking at it or carefully picking bits of icing or decorations. Sometimes we may need to strategically place a little icing to help things along, or other times mom or dad may have to get involved by smashing up the cake for them :) It’s also a good idea to bring along a favorite toy and some snacks in case your little one needs some encouragement.
Just a simple cake smash trick.
See you soon.
Love Alana XX
