Happy 1st Birthday!!! As a Houston Cake smash photographer I love capturing the surprise and curiosity that comes from toddlers when they first lay eyes on this big huge cake in front of them. It’s like, really, can I smash this with my hands and you won’t be upset with me? This session was such a great example of the fun we have watching it unfold. Mom and dad had done all the prep work that I suggested, like getting her a cupcake and setting her down ahead of time to tear into it. This helps them prepare for the taste and texture before they come into the studio and sometimes prevents the fear of the unknown. Mom said before hand that when they did the prep she really wasn’t into it so we were concerned she might not like it but you would have never known. She did such a great job diving into the cake and eating as much as she could. She managed to get icing in her hair and all over mom and dad too.
