Cake Smash Photographer | Andrei’s Monkey 1 year session

We don’t monkey around when it comes to cake smashes!  I loved this monkey theme for Andrei’s 1 year session in my studio in Phoenix!! The bright greens and blues with touch of brown worked perfectly for his studio cake smash set up! Mom brought the adorable banners and monkey that we hung in the back ground and it was the perfect touch! Andrei took some warming up but after a while he gave me some huge big smiles! He loved playing with the chair and stool as he was standing on them. He wasn’t quite walking yet so you could tell he liked to stand up on things. When it was time for the cake smash, we brought out a darling monkey cake maybe by the always amazing Cakelicious AZ! It took some bribing and a  lot of patience to get Andrei to seem interested in the cake, but it didn’t get us too far. Some kiddos just are not a huge fan of the cake, and that is totally ok! But boy do they know what they are missing out on! I wish I could say I ate his left overs but since the first moment he sat down, he knocked the cake over and made a good mess even though he really didn’t “eat” any of it!! I still love this session even though we didn’t get a huge smash out of the cake!
