Let Them Eat Cake! | Seattle Baby Photographer
One Year Cake Smash
One of the greatest perks of being a Seattle newborn photographer is getting to watch my clients grow! I met Adeline last August when she was just 2 weeks new. She was one of the most beautiful babies I have ever seen.
I have now photographed her 4 times in this past year! Each time we’ve stuck to neutral tone themes and they are always just classic and beautiful. Aside from her newborn session, she and her mother have done my fall and spring mini sessions this past year. I am really excited to get to work with her again next week for my Mt Rainier mini sessions! Of course again we are doing these two gorgeous neutral outfits for mother and daughter!
Back to this session. Many times with cake smash sessions babies are not used to it and the texture of the frosting and cake makes them create these serious perplexed faces. Adeline did perfectly for her session. She was so happy and giddy I won the Seattle baby photographer lottery!
We kept the set up for her session very simple. Classic is always the way I lean towards. I had gotten this gorgeous lace white tent that we paired with pink and white flowers. These matched beautifully with the simple cake her mom had found. If you don’t know by now I am a huge fan of simple and classic. Everything came together so perfect. It was only made better by sweet Adeline’s enthusiasm for the whole process.
I would say it was the cake that she was most excited about, but she actually didn’t even like the cake! Her Mom had brought one of those Starbucks trays with cheese and salami for herself that we ended up hiding in some cake. She wanted nothing to do with the sweet creaminess of frosting with cake layers, but instead wanted the salty salami and rich cheese. This is just one trick I have to use as a Seattle baby photographer. Normally it is baby puffs but instead we used Adeline’s Mom’s lunch!
I cannot wait to continue to watch baby Adeline grow. She has already changed so much and I am so fortunate to have amazing clients that let me be apart of their lives.
