Chloe's First Birthday Cake Smash (kind of...)

I don't really photograph staged studio sessions but lately I have been so busy with location shoots that I thought it would be nice to stay in and do something just for fun.

I looked around at what I could photograph and it came to me - literally. My cat walked over to me and of course I began talking to her in baby voice (admit it, you do this with your pets), "Chloe! Guess whose birthday is soon? It's almost your birthday! Are you excited?!" 

Wait. It was almost her birthday. I knew exactly what I needed to photograph.
Yes, this really happened and it was so fun!

 "Mom, what are you doing? What is all this?"

"Mom, what are you doing? What is all this?"

 "I'm not staying here... wait is that a cake?"

"I'm not staying here... wait is that a cake?"

 "Okay maybe I'll try it."

"Okay maybe I'll try it."

 "This isn't bad.."

"This isn't bad.."

Huge thank you to Bark Shop Bakery for this awesome cake!
