Madison is one!

I’ve photographed SO many cake smashes over the years and they are so much fun because you never know how they will react being able to just dive into a cake.  My youngest, Madison, has been eating solids for a while and she has NO problem making a mess so I figured this would be pretty fun to watch.  I even gathered her sisters around to watch!

I wanted to start with a few non-cake smash photos.  I really don’t know how many times my husband and I had to keep bringing her back onto the backdrop.  She was pretty unimpressed with my antics and was more interested in dancing in circles behind me to the music my husband was playing than having her photos taken.  Regardless, she’s pretty cute!

Onto the cake smash portion of her session.  I really thought she would dive in!  First, she had to  – ONE – BY – ONE –  pull off the cake decorations.  She brought them to her daddy, big sisters and me.  (Again, one by one…) She’d stay on the backdrop for a few photos then mosey on off behind me to dance or try to escape upstairs.  2018-10-02_0003

Here is one of the times that she decided she needed to take a break because being forced to eat cake is tiring… lol!  (Ignore the purple patched wall… one day we will finish it. hahaha!)

Onto the bath portion of her session.  THIS KID WAS MORE INTERESTED IN THE TUB THAN HER CAKE.  But what I really didn’t foresee was the amount of water she was going to dump all over the floor.  The 1st, 2nd and second to last and last photos had some seriously photoshopping done to hide the amount of water splashed everywhere and to hide the wet backdrop that she decided to tear up, ‘cuz why not! lol!2018-10-02_0001I honestly cannot believe a year of her life has gone by already!  I feel like I just brought her home from the hospital!

Happy Birthday, Madison!  We love you so much!  It’s been such a joy watching you grow and explore over this past year and we cannot wait to see more and more of your personality shine through as you grow!  ❤ ❤ ❤

I first met Camden when he was just 14 hours old!  He was my very first Fresh 48 session.  (You can view those photos here.)  I cannot believe he is ALREADY one!  I feel like I was just at the hospital meeting and photographing him!

While he gave us a run for our money during his session, we got some really great images and I’m so excited to be sharing these! Enjoy your sneak peek! ❤McKee_52 copy
