I can’t believe I haven’t blogged this adorable little girl! I need to make sure once I’m all caught up that I KEEP it up for the rest of 2014!! Little Addison was such a great little subject in my Raleigh baby studio last year. She was able to fit into my adorable soft frilly dress that I keep on hand for little girls. ;) So beautiful on her! I also got to use my beautiful distressed cream baby bed during her session. I loved that I was able to capture her standing (a big milestone!) with my props, even though she didn’t need much help! I always say it’s easier when babies aren’t yet walking for their cake smash sessions…it makes for less mess and less chasing around! My seamless paper is pretty big but a few Melissa Berg Photography babies have been known to scamper off with their cake filled hands. ;) I typically have two caregivers at these sessions when babies are walking (or even crawling fast!)…it’s too easy for them to get away from ya! hehe.
Addison’s session shows a perfect example of what to wear during a cake smash. Her mom put her in a simple but colorful pink cloth diaper. While I sometimes love the simplicity of baby in a white diaper (or even bum naked), cake smashes are meant to be fun and colorful! Since her session (and I wish I had it then!) I’ve invested in some more colorful paper backdrops – including a nice bright pink for cake smash photos! I can’t wait to hopefully use it this summer!
