Cake Smash Milestone Session
Meet Arabella everyone! She was in my studio a couple weeks ago for her first birthday cake smash! Turning one is probably the most exciting and saddest milestone to experience as a parent. Her mother requested a very simple theme for her session, purple. With all the different beautiful shades out there I decided to incorporate them all.
One year old’s are like Russian roulette when it comes to temperament. Arabella was fine for 60 seconds and then we had a mini meltdown until the cake came out. Who doesn’t get happy when they eat cake?! Things went well for a few minutes and then a cry but no tears. She just wanted mommy nearby and a drink. I tried to sneak in a few close ups of her but with the focal length of my lens, I had to get close and she did not like that at all. I felt a little bad for making her upset! After some quick thinking I decided to switch lenses and hang out way back. Mom played her favorite songs to cheer her up and it worked, she forgot all about being upset and started waving her arms around. With the help of mom we were able to capture some pretty good smiles from her!
