I can’t think of a more appropriate session to be posting right now than this Time Flies cake smash for one of my wonderful families! Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve found time to blog, but I think these first birthday photos are the perfect way to kick off a TON of posts I’ll be sharing of some of my recent sessions.
I photographed this birthday boy as a newborn, so it was wonderful to see him again. He is baby number four for this wonderful family! I remember he was super chill for his newborn session last September, and he was just the same for his cake smash. (I think he gets it from the rest of his family. They are so laidback and easygoing!)
Mom and Dad traveled with their little copilot to my studio from Dublin, Ohio for this milestone photography session. Mom had asked for a “Time FLIES” cake smash theme. She and Dad can’t believe how fast everything is going, not just with this little man, but with their other three kiddos as well. I know that feeling! She loved the vintage look and shared with me some of the things she wanted to provide, including the aviator jacket, glasses, and hat, and then trusted me to create something unique. Of course, I was so excited to do just that!
I designed the backdrop especially for this session, and designed and made all the props myself. I also sent an image of the backdrop to my baker so she could create a custom cake that would coordinate well with the studio setup. As usual, she matched it perfectly! (If you’re planning a cake smash for your little one, you can’t go wrong ordering from Cindy K Cake Creations–she’s amazing! You’ll find additional suggestions for bakeries I recommend ordering from in my previous blog post about what cake to order for your cake smash session.)
The cake wasn’t just a hit with me either–our little aviator loved it too! He was a little shy at first (not uncommon at all) but as soon as his dad started helping out, he caught on fast and went absolutely crazy for it!
I hope you enjoy a few favorite pics from this little hotshot’s Time Flies cake smash photoshoot!
