Andover Cake Smash Blog Post Round-Up

Andover Baby and Child Photographer Cake Smash Blog Post Round-Up

I don’t know about you but I LOVE a good cake smash photo session! Being an Andover-area photographer since 2009, I have seen my fair share of babies celebrate that first birthday milestone with cake smash photos. And getting to be a part of the big celebration is always something I am super happy and grateful for. Another thing that makes me ridiculously happy is how much people enjoy looking at cake smash portraits! Whenever I post them on social media people get a kick out of the funny ones, ooh and ahh over the sweet ones, and just genuinely adore them. So I figured I’d make it easy and put all of my recent cake smash blog posts in one place.

Okay, okay, okay, okay
So many smashes in our blog
So, let’s turn the sound up, you know why?
I think it’s time for a CAKE SMASH round up!
