Talk about fun … this was by far one of the most fun moments for both my husband and I and of course Frankie. I kept seeing pictures all over Facebook of these amazing cake smash photo sessions. I inquired about a photographer and once I only heard great things, I immediately booked my photo session for Frankie’s first birthday photoshoot (obviously knowing me, I booked this months before his birthday). After spending weeks trying to figure out what he was going to wear (I can’t believe I am actually admitting that), the day finally arrived!
My photographer showed up with all her gear, set up in my living room and we were ready to go. First she took a few pictures of my husband and I with Frankie to get him comfortable with the camera and then we gave him the cake. I built this moment up in my head for so long thinking he would just destroy the cake (as he does with everything else) and I am pretty sure he was just confused. He touched it ever so gently to make sure it wasn’t a toy and then he took one finger, swiped the icing, tried it and continued to just to eat the icing. Luckily, our photographer had a few tricks up her sleeve and he started getting into the cake and then had sooooo much fun playing with it.
I wanted to share this idea as it was something fun and definitely memorable for the big 1st birthday. This one will last a lifetime!!!
Here are a bunch of the pictures of the cake smash (it was hard to choose just one)
Happy 1st birthday to your little ones
