Happy Birthday, Zachary! | A Cake Smash Story | Tuscarawas co. children's photographer

Zachary had never had cake before, and his mom was excited to see what he would think of it. Mom got an adorable cake from Kakes by Katie in Mansfield OH. I was invited to their home just a few days before his birthday, and we settled into the dining room with a large set of windows to my right and my big reflector to my left. The floor and the walls are just the way they look in their home.

Little Zach was not that interested. He needed coaxing and he didn't like the icing really at all. Once big sister Aubrey was dressed in her "cake clothes" and allowed to show him just what he was missing out on, he did discover that sucking on cake tasted pretty good.

All in all, Dad got to come home from work to a nearly whole cake to enjoy a piece as well. As far as a "cake smash session" goes, this one was a bust. An adorable bust but there wasn't any smashing of cake going on. Aubrey thought having icing on her toes was about the funniest thing to ever happen to her, but Zach was not as amused. I'm sure Mom wouldn't have it any other way!

Happy birthday, Zach! It's always a pleasure a see you, buddy!
