Being a cake smash photographer here in Ottawa, it’s even harder to choose a theme for your own daughter! As the months went by and I got to know Josie’s personality, I couldn’t decide between a Tinkerbell theme, a bulldozer theme (this kid has no fear, she’s crazy!), or a balloon garland cake smash theme. So I left the decision up to Stella, my older daughter. What toddler doesn’t like balloons? A blue balloon garland cake smash it is :-)
There’s just something so adorable about a little girl dressed in blue. I’ve had this blue dress forrreever and I knew it was the perfect outfit for her to wear. So a million hours later, the backdrop is done and it’s go time!
Moms and dads… have you ever tried to wrangle your own kids in front of a camera? Of course you have… this is new territory for me though! Oh my gosh it is sooo much harder to take photos of my own children, than my clients! I put so much pressure on myself to get ‘the perfect shots’ that it completely took the fun away. Oh well, I’ll know for next time :-)
Here’s a peek of a few favourite photos from Josie’s cake smash. At the end you’ll see photos of both my girls. The bond they have now is so wonderful! Hope they stay besties for a long, long time! Hope you enjoy seeing Josie destroy a cake in front of this beautiful blue balloon garland!
