Michael is 1! | A Hello, Baby! Story | Dover/New Philadelphia OH children's photographer

Isn't this little man about the cutest guy you've ever seen? His guardian is a diehard Browns fan, and, even though Michael has a spring birthday, we knew that we were going to highlight his budding love for football with his cake smash session. Unfortunately, he got a hold of the cake before I could get a picture of it. You can still get a sense of the awesome job Madilyn Berry on the cake for me. I kept hearing from Facebook friends about how great her baking skills were, so I had to give her a call. (Sneaked a bite-- very tasty!) Highly recommend!

Michael had had a birthday party a week before, so he knew all about what cake was. Surprisingly, he didn't do a lot of smashing but enjoyed what he had. He had quite an audience, and the session fell apart a bit once he realized he would get a laugh for trying to touch people. Then, the cake was no longer interesting.

I don't get out the backdrop holder often, but Emily and I wanted that clean contrast that comes with using seamless paper. I set it up in the dining room with a large reflector to help even out the window light. I'm glad that I did! I love the way this session turned out!
