Cake smash time always brings a mix of feelings my way. First of all, if I have followed the baby since birth (like Aria here) I am in disbelief. It has been a year already? It also brings a sense of joy and is so very humbling. The parents chose to allow me to capture their first year. I wish I lived on a large farm so that I could throw a big old fashioned bar-b-q every year and invite my clients. I just want to sit and visit because they become a family to me and I’m pretty sure my clients would all hit it off very well. 🙂
Cake smashes also bring on cravings (Can you imagine for what? lol) and a tiny sense of jealousy. I become jealous that they can sit with a big ole cake plopped in front of them, dig in with fingers AND toes, cover themselves in delicious sugary icing and cake. All the while everyone around them encouraging them and cheering them on, thinking it’s absolutely precious. Now, if I were to do such things, I’d probably be committed. lol I am totally being silly here (I feel obligated to say *snickering*). It IS precious and such a fun way to capture this milestone.
I have also done it for a 2 year old and I was surprised at how well he did. I was worried he would refuse thinking it wasn’t ok. But with a bit of encouragement he rocked it and stayed put better than most of the 1 year olds I have done. 🙂
