I've had the pleasure of photographing lots of cake smash sessions lately and this one was such a blast! When I started planning with this kiddo's Mom, I was excited to hear she wanted a rustic, western-themed session. I love creating custom set-ups but rustic and antique items are my jam! I picked up some old horseshoes on a trip to Utah and a little hat keychain (which I deconstructed) while at a photography convention in Nashville (I've been traveling a lot lately). I incorporated them with a log cake plate and a rustic crate I had in the studio, my husband's guitar (shhhh... don't tell him. He never plays it anyway), and a replica wagon wheel I found at a local craft store. When Mom informed me the day before the session that the cake she picked up unexpectedly had turquoise accents, I ran to the local fabric store and grabbed some matching fabric to incorporate into the shoot. It was perfect to add into the banner and a great little pop of color that tied everything together. Finally, Mom brought along Dad's cowboy boots for the perfect finish to the set-up.
During the session it took a few minutes for little Michael to warm up but soon he was full of giggles and splashes! He made the cutest little faces and I'm so glad I was able to capture his mischievous little looks that really show his personality. I'm excited to be delivering a beautiful album of favorite images and a canvas for Dad's office soon!
