A Non-Traditional Cake Smash Session – Pie Smash for Baby’s 1st Birthday

I photograph a lot of cake in the studio, but this is my first pie smash. It was fantastic. We went all out with a decadent pie from My Sugar Pie in Zionsville. Nothing but the best for my clients!

This little guy’s Mama said that his favorite food since they started solids was pumpkin. Since he was also born right around Thanksgiving this made the decision for what type of cake smash to do easy. They opted for no cake and instead this delicious pie.

This birthday boy agreed that it was delish and dug right in. He LOVED it, until he didn’t. Then the crying pictures at the end of the session are equally adorable as the happy eating ones.

I love this non-traditional cake smash session and I hope you do too!
