A Dr. Seuss First Birthday! – Drayton Valley Photographer

I have been absolutely loving all of the fun cake smashes I have been doing lately (maybe its the fact that I am pregnant and I love anything that involves cake)! I have always loved art and being creative, and when I worked in a childcare centre I LOVED setting up my classroom in different themes each month (I made a life sized cave covered in vines for the jungle theme!). It was so much fun to see the kids faces light up and to use their imaginations while getting lost in playtime, so in a way photographing cake smashes allows me to create a little piece of magic especially for that child’s birthday! As a fan of all things whimsical and Dr. Seuss, I was over the moon ecstatic when Sabrina contacted me about doing a Dr. Seuss cake smash for Kiptyn’s first birthday! I was counting down the months and days until it finally arrived! I drew and painted Dr. Seuss characters from The Cat In The Hat, and had Lindsey from Lindsey’s Cupcakes and Cakes make me the cake! It turned out absolutely perfect, she always creates exactly what I am hoping for! Kiptyn is such an easygoing, sweet little guy! He is very busy and is always on the go it seems, and he loves people watching! We did some photos of him with his gorgeous mama before the cake smash and he was so interested in what all of the kids were doing that were playing nearby! He has a smile that will melt your heart and the most gorgeous big blue eyes! Kiptyn is also going to be a big brother this summer so I had to sneak a few quick shots of his mama in while we were at it, since she looked so incredible! One of my favourite moments was when he came over to her (After busily running around with no interest in us whatsoever) and sweetly touched her belly! He is going to be such a great big brother! I hope you enjoy this sneak peek, it was so hard to narrow down the photos as I love this fun session so much! Happy first birthday, Kiptyn!
