Spring cake smash – Elkridge child photographer

Spring cake smash?  It’s January! Mother Nature and Jack Frost seems to have skipped right over Elkridge Maryland though. We have roses blooming and daffodils sprouting already.  We also have this little sweet heart celebrating an unseasonably warm birthday!

We enjoyed playing with some new storybook themes, Peter Rabbit’s spring garden, and a vintage Winnie the Pooh.  The bunny garden just might be adapted to become a sweet spring around Easter time too!

The vintage Winnie the Pooh set was, once again, an amazing team effort. Robin and Kat made the sweet Hunny Bee cake, and Kat and Rose worked on the hand painted backdrop.  We’re looking forward to adapting this set for a little boy later this year too! (Come on, where’s our boys who love Winnie the Pooh?!)

Cake Smash/Sweet Smash sessions are loads of fun for us because we never quite know how they will turn out.  Some children dive into the cake right away; others would rather dip a finger (or toe!) in carefully. Some delight in finger painting and making a mess, others are dainty or prefer a spoon.  The unpredictability is fun for us as photographers. Finding a way to create beautiful images regardless of each baby’s reaction is what makes this toddler stage so fascinating!

While all the planning that we do is essential, when it comes time to set that cake in front of the birthday baby, no one knows how it’s going to turn out.

This time, we had one of the neatest, most dainty Smashes in history!
