Zombie Themed Cake Smash

"Oh my!" came a startled cry from the street, "that poor baby!"

Don't worry, ma'am. It's only red velvet cake, we assured her. And you could feel the wave of relief spread over her from across the lawn where I was shooting.

Well I guess you could say that we nailed the zombie-themed brain cake Cake Smash if passers by were convinced. ;) That's one thing I love about the Jabonetes. They go all out AND they are a thrill to photograph. When they mentioned that they wanted to continue their Zombie Apocalypse session theme to their son's first birthday celebration I couldn't resist!

He destroyed this cake... and it was after eating a big chunk of his blue velvet cake for his Sullivan Monster's Inc cake smash. Oh, my.

And just a note from momma: the red DID wash out of the cloth diaper after only one wash. Phew.

Today this little guy is ONE. He's traveled around the sun one entire time. He's crawled, laughed, ate chicken wings, and already started walking.

And it might be a little apparent from his birthday theme where his name came from. ;) Check out his cloth diaper, too.

This guy was ready to dive in before we could even set things up. He's got a monster appetite!

The cake was Blue Velvet with cream cheese frosting, whipped up by mom. SOOOOOOOOOOO good. I tasted a nibble and was practically drooling during the whole session.

And, if we didn't stop him he probably would have eaten the entire cake. No kidding. Just look at him licking frosting off of his tie.

deuces and dinosaurs

This little guy is turning two soon! And if there's one thing that I've learned as my own little guy rapidly approaches this milestone himself, it is that toddlers are not naturally still. They are full of wonder, movement, amazement, and emotion. And here I got to capture a few moments of reflection in the chaos that is love and life.

golden birthday - port saint lucie - treasure coast child photographer

A golden birthday only happens once in your lifetime. It is the only birthday when your age and your birth date are the same. Say your birthday is the 25th? Then your golden birthday would be when you turn 25.  Pretty neat. I wish I had known about this long ago when I had mine.

Fortunately for Madison, she knew that turning 6 on the 6th was her golden birthday. I was lucky enough to be invited to capture the magic of this once-in-a-lifetime event. To make it even more special, we brought an armory of gold glitter and set our session at the golden hour. I may still be cleaning up gold glitter, but these pictures were totally worth it.

Happy GOLDEN birthday Maddie!
