Have you ever wondered which session I find to be the most challenging?? My answer is the 1st Birthday and Cake Smash Session. At this age, the emerging toddler is the most challenging subject I work with. They are either crawling or walking off the set, they have an opinion about sitting versus standing or laying down, they smile on demand but usually need lots of coaxing and well, some kids are just plain scared of their birthday cake! It takes a lot of energy and patience for the 1st Birthday and Cake Smash Session. This handsome man was exactly what I described. He preferred to "pitter-patter" all over my studio instead of stand still for his personal photo shoot. He was not keen on giving me many smiles but mom did her best and sang him lots of songs to solicit one. He like 50 percent of the kids I see for 1st Birthday and Cake Smash sessions was completely uninterested in his birthday cake. He did for a brief moment in time enjoy giving his balloons a nice shake and slap! All in all, you would have no idea from these photographs that he gave us a sweaty and fun, run around the studio! I first met him this past November during his family's Christmas session when he was not yet walking. What a treat it was to see him developing into being the on-the-go toddler, Happy Birthday to you!!
