You know when you get excited about something so much that you just want to tell everyone, even strangers in a restaurant? I so love the idea of doing a cake smash for a 1st birthday! A couple weeks ago we did one with Kendra from Bullfrogs & Butterflies Photography. It was so much fun! Kendra is awesome! Looking at the pictures you can't tell that Maddie had a rough night of sleep the night before and was minutes away from a meltdown by the time we arrived. Kendra was good at wrangling her and keeping her entertained with all the different props she has. Maddie was a big fan of the pink chair so we comprised with her as it was easier for her to climb or sit in it. I loved the huge selection of hats, toques, head bands, diaper covers and other props! There was so many cute things to choose from! She also has so many different backdrops to choose from and the one she chose for us perfectly matched the purple & pink theme! Kendra got Maddie's tutu and headband hand-made for her by Heather's Handiwork and we got to keep them after which we will wear again for her birthday party tomorrow. The material the tutu was made of was super easy to clean! The adorable polka dot cake was made by Natty Cakes (who is also making Maddie's birthday cupcakes!) A few days ago Kendra sent me a few shots as a preview and I was so amazed at how great they turned out and excited to see the rest! (what a tease! haha) Tonight she sent some more which literally brought tears to my eyes! They are so great and she found a way to capture each funny aspect of Maddie's personality in different photos! I absolutely love them! Bullfrogs & Butterflies Photography specializes in maternity, newborn and children's photography. Kendra is amazingly talented, super fun and great with kids! You can see more of her work on her website and you can meet her in person at our Beyond the Bump workshops or swing by her vendor table at the Mommies N Munchkins Fair April 15th. She is always giving away great prizes via her Facebook page too so like her page to see what goodies she has to give away this month!
