Making My Job Easy

Happy Hump Day! I hope you are having a great Wednesday.  I had the pleasure of photographing cutie, Dean, today for his 1st birthday cake smash photos. Whenever I do a cake smash session I customize a backdrop that can be destroyed. Together with the parents I decided what colors we are going to use for the backdrop and cake.  Sometimes, especially with little boys I feel it is a little limited that the choice is usually blue or green or a combination of the two.  Don't get me wrong I love doing blue and green backdrops for little boys but I always love to be able to do something a little different. 

So I was thrilled when Dean's mother came up with the idea of doing a patriotic color scheme of red, white and blue. This is especially fitting this time of year.  Not only did she come up with a great theme she picked up some great props. She got some red, white and blue balloons, a wooden frame for me to do photo effect shown below and fabulous letters spelling "ONE."  Along with my backdrop and cake, I think we came up with some great images!! Here are just a few. What do you think?

I hope you enjoyed the cuteness as much as me. The good news...I get to do it all over again tomorrow with another little boy! It's a tough job but someone's got to do it!
