Cowboy Cake Smash

We had such a blast with this little guy. He had just woken up from a nap, so he was a little shy at first, and hung on to grandma for dear life, but he eventually relaxed a little and had a great time.

What could be cuter than a cowboy in diapers and boots? Talk about personality. He had us all laughing and smiling. There are quite a few children that find their way in front of our camera, but shoots like this are the reason photography is our calling and passion.

I've always felt like our shoots take on a life of their own once we get going. I used to really stress out over not knowing exactly what the heck we were going to do. Photography has been the best cure for my OCD. It's taught me how to let go and just capture the beauty unfolding right in front of my eyes. It's good to have a vision to chase after, but I think you have to really be open to changing direction quickly.

We were there on a mission: To feed this boy his birthday cake. I'd say he successfully completed the mission, and only ate a little bit of hay along with his cake. Nothing more fun than celebrating a first birthday with photos of cakes getting smashed and devoured!

Most people don't realize all that goes into something like this. We are indebted to moms, grandmas, cousins, aunties, passerby, and anyone else that helps get babies' attention, and makes them smile. My wonderful assistants (Lisa, Maia, and on occasion Chance and Skye as well), set designer Lisa, and our cake lady Kristi Havens. Friends of friends with a really cool ranch and horses that help us create beautiful art.
