One of my favorite session types are cake smashes. I love coming up with a theme (or using one that a client requests), shopping for props, and setting up the studio to create a unique backdrop to celebrate little ones turning one. Normally these are little humans, but this time it was our puppy, Scout.
For Scout's birthday theme I went simple, using primary colors. But the big accomplishment was baking him a dog friendly birthday cake made of peanut butter, pumpkin, applesuace and other canine approved ingredients. And while I didn't let him devour the entire cake, he did seem to like it. Is that a smile I see? For me, it definitely needed some sugar. Yes, yes... I tasted it. Don't judge. If I'm willing to photography a cake smash session for a dog, I'm willing to taste the cake.
