Raleigh Family Photographer | Henry’s Cake Smash Photography Session | Holly Springs NC



Every cake smash that we shoot here at the studio in Holly Springs, is unique… And it should be because every baby is unique. This Little birthday boy was no exception to that rule. His mommy wanted to do a special session incorporated airplanes into the cake smash. When I saw a photo of this adorable cake that the mom had submitted to the baker, I knew that it was going to be different and I welcomed the challenge.

At first he was extremely apprehensive about what to do with this beautiful cake that sat before him. He thought that it was interesting and was definitely intrigued. After Henry got used to this new idea of the cake smash, he tore into the cake ripping it apart, almost clawing at it. It was hilarious to watch. I just started laughing at it as I reflect back. Clearly, he knew we were entertained by our laughs… and he laughed back at us.

As always we used a local baker to ensure this cake was perfect. This time the mommy selected Baked by Billie right here in Holly Springs. It was a beautiful aqua color with white clouds, a red ribbon and a fun airplane on top. Henry didn’t trash the whole cake so we were able to package it back up and send home with mommy for possible dessert later on. I always think that’s a big win.

Some of the birthday babies that I photograph for cake smashes are extremely mobile. Some of them sit down for the whole cake smash… This little guy loved to get around the setup, and that mobility made a huge mess! That is also what helped make this session so fun and so cute.

Being that this weekend is Memorial Day, I figured this red, white and blue theme would be perfect to feature on the blog. I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of Henry’s cake smash as much as I loved documenting it.
