First birthday cake smash has become one of my favorite type of photo sessions lately. So much creativity, personality and characteristics involved. For this particular session, Mom is an enthusiastic R+F independent consultant and super passionate about what she does. For her son Jacob’s first birthday, we brainstormed the idea of having the baby role play a dermatologist along with a R+F themed cake smash.
The inspiration came from this advertisement picture. We therefore decided on a plain gray seamless paper background along with props and banners that would give us a laboratory look.
Silver and white smash cake adorned with gum pastes and real R+F travel size products is hand crafted by Slice of Fancy/Sweet & Stuff.
Chemistry bar glassware made of REAL borosilicate 3.3 lab glass capable off withstanding extremes in temperature is from Med Lab Supply.
Crafts By Jackie put together a thoughtfully designed happy birthday banner using fonts similar to R+F’s.
Mom is also a good sewer. She made Jacob’s doctor smock out of her preggo pillow case. Jacob’s big sister used the remaining fabric and made her own doll a dress, on which she wrote heart-melting happy birthday wishes to her baby brother.
For this session I sneak peek with a first birthday cake collage and it was such a big hit.
People also responded so well to this bathtub picture.
Wait! We are not done yet! After the cake smash we also took the little guy out for a walk and captured some lifestyle pictures there.
Update from MuSen: I was introduced to this brand after this cake smash session and fell in love with the products. My favorites are the Lash Boost , the Active Hydration Serum , the Bright Eye Complex, and the Redefine AMP it up special. Click here to take your free 60 second consultation.
