I’ve recently discovered that I adore first birthday smash cake sessions. It’s so much fun to be there when baby gets their first bite of cake (yum!) and even better to see how excited Mom and Dad are to watch their baby discover something new. Every baby has a different reaction to the cake, too, which is so cute to watch. Some babies dive right in and make a total mess, others are more cautious and curious. I’ve even had a few babies who sort of felt like Mama was poisoning them or something and wanted NOTHING to do with their little cake. Plus, at 1st birthday parties, it’s sometimes hard for Mom and Dad to enjoy watching these moments because there are so many people and their little baby might be tired or shy. But miss Ella was the perfect smash cake client. Shooting this girl is such a treat. She’s adorable and has such a spunky little personality! My husband went to high school with Ella’s Daddy and then college with her Daddy AND Mommy so our families go way back. Happy Birthday (again) to you, sweet girl!
