Meet Dylan, the cutest little bundle of joy all wrapped up in a baby boy. His Mom loved how his newborn photos turned out so much, that she couldn’t wait to have him grow enough to get some cake smash photos taken.
Cake just isn’t fully explored until you put your feet in it! Don’t you just love how babies really get fully involved when they explore something new.
Now, cake smash photo sessions aren’t just about the cake. I make sure to let the baby really show off all of the skills they have either mastered or are working on. Like learning their letters. . . yeah, well, maybe reaching a bit here. But he sure did love the twinkly lights on these babies.
Who could resist a drooly little grin like this?
Forget the pots and pans, Dylan was all about beating this tub like a drum. He had the most fun and when we took it out of the frame for another set up, he would crawl out to get to the tub again. I see a band in his future.
Not quite standing on his own yet, but happy to try! Mom was close by to make sure if he tumbled downward, she was there to catch him.
I don’t know how parents get their kids to wear hats because my kids would never do it, and neither would Dylan. This quick shot was taken right before he flung the hat off of his head and far, far away.
There is a secret to cake smash photos. You see, most babies have never had real sugar by the time they reach age 1. So plopping a cake down in front of them is like putting a whole watermelon in front of them. You get that, “what am I suppose to do with this?” look. And then once they taste the cake, for many of them it is so overly sweet, compared to the applesauce they’ve been getting, that they want nothing to do with it.
So, the secret to successful cake smash photos. . . let them eat cake at least twice before you have your cake smash photo shoot! Then, they know what they’re getting, are excited to eat it, and usually dive right in.
The perfect “ending”, yeah I went there, to a cake smash. Mom airlifting the baby out of the mess and straight towards the tub! Dylan had a great time, as did both Mom and I, because there is almost nothing cuter than a sweet little baby enjoying himself.
