It’s amazing how fast the first year goes! I first met Stephanie and John during their maternity session, then was introduced to Ethan at his newborn session. Captured Ethan again at his six month session and now he’s about to turn ONE! I absolutely love this cake smash theme of monsters! All the detail, from the beautifully decorated cake from Sweet Mess Bake Shop, to the handmade banner & shirt from Ethan’s grandma. I love the bright colors and all the smiles on the monsters faces… including the best monster of them all, Ethan! He was hesitant at first getting into his cake, but once he tasted the sweetness he went full speed ahead. Didn’t even pay attention to us trying to get him to look at the camera. All focus was aimed at the cake. By the end of the cake smashing session, he turned into a blue monster on his hands and feet! Even though I’m going to miss photographing Ethan, I’m looking forward to capturing more family memories!
