From the moment I walked into Ezra and Hugo’s home for Emi’s One Year and Cake Smash Session, Emi’s giggles and smiles grabbed my attention. On set she was crawling around, dancing, and laughing. She quickly won me over, and I had the best time photographing her.
As expected, Mom had to help get her started with the cake smash, but once she tasted the chocolate pieces on the cake, she was hooked!
On the creative side of things, this photoshoot was a fun one for me. Instead of having to choose a single theme for Emi’s session, we decided to combine the various themes and tie them together using a single color scheme and reusing props. In doing so, we were able to design a concept that celebrated Emi’s Halloween birthday, her Mexican heritage, the “Little Pumpkin” theme from her baby shower, and boxing as a nod to her Dad Hugo, who is a professional boxer.
The backdrop and props were gathered and prepared by Ezra (Mom), and the cake was purchased at their local grocery store.
