Look at this adorable little face!! And with icing all over it? Cooommmeee on!! So darn cute!!
When planning this cake smash Neekon's Momma Leila and I chatted on the phone about ideas. She knew she wanted blues and greys so I started planning in my mind what I wanted to do. Closer to the date of the session we chatted again about final details and she mentioned that Neekon's birthday theme was rubber duckies and I got SO excited!! I have never done a shoot with rubber duckies before and it has been a theme I wanted to do for a long long time!
She already had all of the little ducks and a big one as they were going to be decorations for his party so I asked her to bring them! Now that I knew there were ducks coming I wanted to keep the backdrop simple as I know it could get really busy looking with too much going on. I added simple paper dots to the backdrop to give the feel of 'bubbles' and I did have a white pompom banner up but took it down after we added the ducks as there wasn't enough white to balance the banner out.
Add a cake made by Neekon's Grandma, my cake stand and awaaaayyy we went! Oh did things get messy!! Neekon was a bit tentative at first as most kids are but he warmed up quite fast and once he figured out the cake was delicious food lol he just sat there and ate and played with the cake!! That is not very common, to be honest so I was SO happy he was into it! Most kids are scared, crawl away, need to have other food and it can be quite challenging. That's the truth friend hahaha!
My favorite part of the session (If I haaaaddd to choose) would be when Neekon fed his dad...a DUCK hahaha. Seriously, take a look at the series of photos where he is feeding him, you can see the duck in his mouth hahaha and then, of course, I had to get dad to show me the duck after and I took a photo of it! What an awesome thing to have happened and to be documented, they will talk about that moment for years and years to come!!
So it was a super fun and successful cake smash session and I too won't ever forget it!
