The last time I had a photo session with Amy and David was when she was pregnant and that it was so much fun at the time. That very session she mentioned that she wanted to get some photos once their new addition arrived. Well, fast forward to a few days ago and it was already Jace's first birthday. Wow, how time flies! Amy decided to do a cake smash for his first birthday, and as you can tell from the photos below, Jace had a great time.
Before we got to the cake smash we got some family photos done. It was then off to Jace's bedroom where Amy did a fantastic job of decorating. She filled his crib with white and blue balloons. Once she put Jace in the crib he simply let loose. I just tried my best to keep up with him flinging balloons around and laughing.
It was then time for the final part of the session, the cake smash. I have done a few before and some kids almost need to be forced to get into the cake, but not Jace. Once he got going he didn't stop. Handful after handful he made quite the mess but it meant I got a lot of great photos. As you can see from one of the final shots, it was quite the aftermath. The cake just didn't stand a chance .
I always look forward to these kind of session because it is so spontaneous. Jace was the perfect model and he seemed to have such a great first birthday. I can't wait until the next session!
