It is Cake Smash time!

I can't believe how fast the first year has gone by. It feels like it was just the other day that we were bringing our newborn baby home from the Hospital.

Isabella had a great time during her birthday party (check here),... she played with her friends and had lots of carrots. She was so excited that she didn't nap a bit!

After celebrating Isabella's 1st birthday, it was time to look into the "Cake Smash thing". I think it is adorable to see the pics of the little ones having fun with a cake. Little did I know that most of time the cake smash photo session should take place before the 1st b-day party,... oh rookie mom!!!!

For those who (like me) don't know, a cake smash photo session consists of a baby literally smashing a beautiful cake and making a controlled mess. As I mentioned, it is a sweet mess (pun intended)!

We chose the package that started with the Milestone pictures (1 year old), then the Cake Smash when Isabella got in touch with the cake and had a blast and wrapped up with a  relaxing Bubble Bath.

I wanted a cake that looked like a giant cupcake and the ladies from Mangia Cake Desserts did a great job! It was beautiful and yummy. This was the first time that Isabella tasted sugar.

As for he theme, I love the clean backdrops with all possible shades of pink. Another prop that I wanted was the large letters that spell out ONE.

The photographer - Alona Rose - was really nice and made Isabella, mom and dad feel comfortable during the photo session. Everything that she prepared - props, backdrops, balloons - was pretty & elegant, I love the flowers and the balloons! Needless to say that she is a great professional,... look at some pictures:

We took the Birthday board with us, it was made for her Birthday party and now it is in her nursery.

A few tips: 1) think about the theme/color scheme you want for the cake smash in advance, try to search on Pinterest and Instagram for ideas; 2) Be prepared for you to get some cake on your clothes and maybe your hair :) It might be a good idea to have a spare outfit for you just in case! 3) Make sure your baby is well rested,...

So,.. did you like Isabella's Cake Smash Session?
