For Tristan’s First Birthday I knew that I wanted to do a smash cake session. It’s funny now that I have a kid I feel more inclined to capture these precious moments more than ever before. Of course pre-kid you take pictures and what not but I swear life has increased to hyper speed and time is just slipping away. So, I did some Pinterest research because I wanted to get an idea of styling for Tristan’s smash cake photos. Thanks’ to Pinterest I had over a million options in a matter of seconds but after refining my search parameters I settled on a style that was not only nice and simple, but also made use of the decorations from his 1st Birthday Party the day before!
One thing I did not want to do for his smash cake photos is overwhelm the photo. I noticed that in some of the Pinterest inspiration I saw that there would be a lot of props and what not and it just wasn’t the look I was going for. But, the pictures came out great! I used my awesome friend/sister photographer Terry Dawn Photography for his photos and I couldn’t be happier with the result! Now all I have to do is figure out what I will do when he hits those terrible two’s!
