Today we had Mason's cake smash and first birthday portraits!
This morning I was busy setting up a rustic themed cake smash and first year portrait sessions. I typically like to start the session off with portraits on my type of "style" background. I love the neutral colors and how Mason is 100% the focus of the shoot. Sometimes when there is too much of a background and too many things around, it takes all the focus off of the subject. By starting off this way, it gives the client time to get comfortable with me and figure out what is going on. I received lots of hugs from Mason during this time. (I also thought about having baby number 3 for a mere second!)
Mason was a PERFECT angel during his portraits and gave us some many great shots!! Thanks Mason!! Next we did a little portrait shoot with the rustic theme just to give a little variation with the shoot.
Next came the cake! I ask parents to provide their own cake for this mainly because of allergies. My number one recomendation for cakes would be Cozy Cabin Bake Shoppe. www.facebook.com/CozyCabinBakeShoppe/?fref=ts Cake time!! This is always the fun part! You never know how a child will react with a cake. Will they love it? Will they hate? Are they going to throw it at me?! Mason was a perfect gentleman and kept the mess to himself but boy was there a mess!! Mason ROLLED through the cake as mom giggled in the background and I photographed it all.
While mommy was cleaning up Mason, I edited all the photos and showed Mason and his mommy. They had so many great images to choose from. We decided that an album for the coffee table would be the perfect product to showcase this fun shoot!!
Thank you Mason and Christie was a wonderful morning.
Grateful to have met you ;)
