le smash

I've got to confess, I was always one of those people that cringed at cake smash photos pre-children, but now it's become a little family tradition that I LOVE! We did a cake smash photoshoot right before Oliver turned one, and this past weekend it was Austin's turn.

We're a bit of a DIY family - I made the bunting, onesie and cake. We used a roll of white bulletin board paper as the backdrop and Mitch took the photos. I really wanted a studio look this time around, and even though we lost all our lovely natural lighting at the last minute with storm clouds coming over, I'm so happy with the results - thanks, Mitch!

Austin started panting and kicking his feet madly as I lowered him down in front of his cake, but it actually took him a long time to warm up to the idea of touching it.

He kept crawling away - chasing the camera and coming in for mama hugs, so we decided to recruit big brother Ollie to show him how it's done.

It worked a treat!

It might have taken him a while to warm up to the idea of getting messy, but I think our littlest man had a blast!

Only nine days left until baby Austin is ONE!
