One of my most common requests when asked to photograph a one year old - is a cake smash. Mom's love their little babies getting all messy and looking all cute fully covered in cake.
Some photographers who have studios have these as packages - me? I take advantage of many of Minneapolis's beautiful parks and its even better when there is a lake. Quick dunk in the water makes an easy clean up.
We had spent the first half of M's photoshoot running around chasing this active little girl. I was convinced that she was not going to be interested in her cake. No way would this little chica sit still and eat cake. Boy was I wrong! As soon as she realized what was going on and that it was OK to put her hands, feet etc. into the cake. She was all for it. But baby M's favorite part? Sharing cake with her dad. Photos of that coming next. So stinking cute.
So hey - enjoy this Saturday night - maybe we all should go get messy with a little cake on this beautiful night! You interested?
I will be the one covered in cake at the park ;-)
