A Where the Wild Things Are Cake Smash: Saratoga Springs Baby Photographer

I truly love everything about our cake smash sessions -- cute babies & cakes & creative backdrops & photos... what more can a girl ask for?  Planning Maeve's "Where the Wild Things Are" cake smash was no exception, and I loved collaborating with her mom to plan the perfect outfit, a beautiful rustic cake, and a backdrop that would bring this Maurice Sendak's magical childhood story to life to celebrate this little girl's first birthday.

One of my favorite things about babies this age are the sweet, squishy little baby rolls on their arms & legs.  Maeve ROCKS those rolls, and her mom chose this little romper specifically to show those off.  Doesn't this just make you want to cuddle up with her?

Maeve might not have been so sure about her cake at first, daintily swiping at the frosting.  Before we knew it, she started what we called "the hulk smash".  Just picture this sweet little face scrunching up and hulk smashing her cake for a second... it's adorable!

And finally, let's finish up with a few images of a clean and sugar-free baby girl before her cake smash.  I just love this quilt series that we captured together!  Her mom brought this baby quilt, and Maeve brought her sassy personality.  Which is your favorite expression on that adorable little face of hers?
