Chico, CA Cake Smash Photographer | Adysen Monroe

I am so thrilled to get to work with my favorite little miss again, Adysen Monroe!  I had to miss her first birthday in July due to wedding season, but her Mom and I worked out a time when we were in Vegas for WPPI to get together and take Adysen's first year cake smash!   Unfortunately, Adysen isn't a fan of sweets and really isn't a fan of being dirty.  She didn't want to play with the cake, didn't want to eat the cake, and overall wasn't thrilled with this session.  Fortunately, she's adorable so we still got some wonderful pictures.

Yes, the cake progressively gets destroyed throughout the session.  If you must know, that was me and Susan trying to show her it was OK to play with that cake.  She still wasn't having it.  We joke that if we'd used a salad or a veggie tray things would have gone much, much better!
 I just adore the last image in this series.  We told her to sit down and make a mess of the cake.  This is the reaction we got!
 Trying it out and...
 ...NOT liking it!
 Mom thought that if maybe she had a spoon she'd eat the cake.  Yeah, not so much.  But she did try to feed me!
After her second breakdown we decided to end the shoot and prevent childhood cake trauma.  

I think my advice for a first year Cake Smash session is to do the session as close to their first birthday as possible.  Miss Adysen Monroe was already 7 months past her birthday and I think that affected her session quite a bit.  From being in a non-messy phase to having no interest in sweets/new foods.  But, I love how this session turned out!  We captured her personality and cuteness, which is my ultimate goal for each session.
