As we prepare for Cam’s first birthday (cue the tears), we decided to do a little fiesta-themed cake smash fun! We chose to keep our set super simple since I wanted Cam and the cactuses to stand out. My purpose is to put some of these photos in frames out for his first birthday fiesta. However, I also wanted them to put in our house as well. Therefore, I wanted to keep the set pretty neutral, but still fun.
We had the photos taken at our family-friend’s studio in Washington. She is amazing! She did Mark and I’s engagement photos, wedding photos, Cam’s newborn photos, and now these. She captured exactly what I was hoping for.
Cam seriously had a blast doing his cake smash. Our photographer told us that most of the time they’re able to box up the cake and send the rest home with the parents… well that was not going to happen with ours- Cam demolished it! He had his hands, mouth, arms, and feet in it at one point. It was SO much fun to watch. She also told us that many times the babies aren’t interested in the cake, so it was fun to see Cam so into it!
When we got home after this session, Cam was on a huge sugar high and it was hilarious. He was rolling around, belly laughing, pulling up on the couch to play peek-a-boo with Mark, and saying ‘mama’ and ‘dada’ constantly. He is normally a pretty happy kid, but this was another level of silliness. All in all it was an amazing day and I would absolutely recommend a cake smash session for your little one’s first birthday>> amazing memories!
