Pink Floral Cake Smash | East Hartford, CT
Cake smash planning begins well in advance of the session date, and it’s a big reason why I recommend to parents that we book a date and start planning at least 4-6 weeks out (and even longer if possible!). Most of the time, I’m planning something either from scratch, or still needing to make additional purchases to theme to create something. Items take time to ship or shop for to make your child’s set just right! We don’t use backdrops here with props built in – I feel it gives an artificial look and perspective isn’t always the best. So, I prefer personally to build my own with parents directly and come up with something unique they will love! A few weeks prior to this cutie’s arrival, I had actually photographed a similar lavender cake smash theme that she loved so much, she asked if I could do something similar for a pink floral cake smash instead! Now her cousin had some to see me a few years back for a nautical cake smash, and at the time he was probably the best smasher I ever had! So this time it was her turn to shine. But you know what? This little one loved her Mommy SO much. And I’m sure with everyone being home with COVID-19, that only added to the fears some one-year-olds have about strangers. But each of my appointments is built in individually for that day, so there’s no rushing here! Sometimes, a little extra time a patience is all that is needed to turn a rough session into a great one! And in her case, a little ornament I happened to have (we like to have things on hand they can touch and hold to keep in one place) was her ticket to happiness! So you know what? We let her have that ornament whenever she wanted to. Portraits went really well, but the cake, albeit delicious, was not as much of a fan of getting frosting all over her hands. So into the tub we went! And after some initial crying (which Mom loved those photos anyway!), we were back to all smiles, splashing, and playing with rubber duckies! Despite some tears and uncertainty, this little one came away with another beautiful gallery that her Mom chose to have made into one of our newest popular products – the Favorites Box – which pairs beautiful professional matted prints with a corresponding USB drive of digital files for those same images. A perfect way to get both printed and digital keepsakes of your child’s session! Contact us today about planning your child’s special birthday session!
