Otis | Cake Smash

Oh Otis, you cute boy with the most ADORABLE curls.

Otis will be one this month, so his mama brought him in for a cake smash to celebrate. He was about 10% interested in the cake and 90% interested in napping in the curtains. They just look so inviting and comfy. I don’t blame him!

Not going to lie, this is a tough age to photograph if they aren’t into the cake! At this age, babies want to be on the move and exploring everything around them. To get Otis to stay in front of the backdrop, we bribed him with piles of puff snacks. And Mama got some cute smiles during a game of peek-a-boo. Our session lasted around twenty minutes (plus or minus five… I always forget to look at the clock) and we ended up with a gallery of 25 beautiful photos for Otis’s family to choose from! I call that a success!

And it was a double success because there was leftover, untouched cake (vanilla cotton candy from Souley Sweet Bakehouse) that my kids got to devour.
