Mr. W :: St. Patrick’s Day Cake Smash Andover MA
I was so excited to see this little guy from Andover for his first birthday and to celebrate with a St. Patrick’s Day Cake Smash. I have also photographed him for his newborn and 9 month sitter sessions. Being able to build relationships with littles and their families like this one is one of the best parts of what I do as a portrait photographer.
This was a cake smash session but we made sure to get portraits of the little man before the big smash. These portraits make a great keepsakes and are a snapshot of the first year of baby’s life. The football in these portraits is from dad’s college days and is also featured in his newborn photos. Props like these add such a great personal touch. And also, how sweet is this sailor outfit?
About these Andover First Birthday Photos
I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard during a cake smash than this one. Baby W went to TOWN on this cake! He ate most of the cake himself and no doubt would have polished it off had we not taken it from him! Mama chose a St. Patrick’s Day theme for the smash since W is a March baby. A backdrop of various green balloons and green suspenders perfectly matches the themed cake.
For any cake smash session, props and decorations are what make the theme really stand out. And the good thing is, sometimes that can just mean colored balloons like in this session. I have an assortment of balloons and a helium tank in the studio so you never have to worry about not having balloons. But for any other props I always start off looking at Etsy.
