Andrew’s Cake Smash Photo Session!

I really couldn’t wait to take Andrew’s cake smash photos!  My baby is turning one in 2 weeks and I wanted to take his photos a little early so that I would have time to print a few out for his birthday party.  His party is going to be Mickey Mouse themed so of course we went with a Mickey Mouse cake smash theme, too.  I’ve never taken cake smash photos before so I was a little nervous but it was so much fun and I think they turned out cute.

I borrowed a quilt stand from my Mom and bought a $30 roll of white photo backdrop paper off of Amazon.  I used a simple multi-colored pennant banner for a little background color and ordered Andrew the CUTEST little Mickey outfit from Etsy.  The cake turned out amazing!  A friend from high school has been making cakes for a little while now and she does such an awesome job so I hired her to make Andrew’s cake for the photos.  In my opinion, she doesn’t charge enough!  I was in love with the cake! 🙂  Thank you, Shaunae!

It was actually my brother’s birthday today and he said all he wanted was to watch Andrew’s cake smash for his birthday celebration.  We all had a great time watching him.  He actually didn’t want much to do with the cake though.  My mom, dad, Kyle, brother and sister-in-law were all trying to keep him on the paper and they had to keep putting him back in front of the cake.  Andrew would sit down in front of it, poke at it a little and then get up and run around.  Eventually he licked his fingers a little and I managed to get some good shots but it was funny that he really wasn’t that interested.  Towards the end of the shoot he was over it and started getting fussy.  What kid of mine doesn’t like sugar?!  Ai yi yi!

Here are a ton of the photos I took, enjoy!
