I’ve done many cake smashes in my career, but never one outdoors. This was fun to do — and it helped immensely that there were no mosquitoes. We started off the birthday photos with Eloise and her family in the west Edmonton poplar forest behind my house. I always offer my clients the opportunity to get in the photos with their one year old for family photos. It also helps give the little ones some time to warm up to me, especially if they are shy. Eloise loved the cake that her mom made her. She had a lot of fun. I was somewhat nervous about how I was supposed to clean up baby after the cake smash — since there was no bathtub in the forest. However, she stayed fairly clean. Wet wipes were all that were needed. Problem solved.
