8 Fun Facts About Babies and Lemons & 1 Pink Lemonade Cake Smash Session

This cake smash session easily ranks among my top favorites of the year. The birthday girl found herself torn between her love for cake and her fascination with lemons, creating an adorable dilemma. It was no surprise that her mom, knowing her affinity for lemons, chose this delightful theme for the occasion. Throughout the session, she delightedly juggled a handful of cake in one hand and a juicy lemon in the other, seamlessly alternating between the two treats with infectious enthusiasm.
