Floral Smash | Ottawa Baby Photography

Seriously can not get over this little cutie and her cake smash session! The colours, the cake and her adorable little face!

She was unsure about the cake – a very dainty eater. She used her fingertips to scoop some icing and lick it off. Even though she ate it slowly, she still really enjoyed the tasty cake and she still made a little mess either way! Too cute, check her out below. Don’t let her serious expression fool you, she has a silly side too!

I think it was pretty special how we incorporated the same flowers we used around the bowl for her newborn session as part of the background for her cake smash.  These little touches are what makes your session meaningful and unique Even though cakes are included in the session fee – provided by a local baker, Decadent Desserts, you are more than welcome to bring your own. They brought a gorgeous floral cupcake cake from Cupcakes by Miryame - click to view more of her fabulous cakes!

Paint Smash-ing Good Time | Ottawa Milestone Photography

I loved how different and fun this was! Both this sweethearts parents are very creative people and a paint smash was right up their alley.  Her mother brought her in wearing a vintage green smocked dress that her grandmother had made for her own children. They chose a few colours - red, blue, green and white - usually i suggest 3 or 4 colours for the best impact. When introduced to the paint she went to town. Painted with such determination and charisma. No surprise that when it came to cleaning up in the bubble bath that she was full of smiles and splashes. I had so much fun capturing this paint smash. I loved her expressions! Check them out below.

I provide the paint, white one piece and canvas, so all you need to worry about is bringing baby. The wonderful thing about this type of session is that you get to KEEP the canvas as a memorable keepsake. Hang it proudly!
