Miss M has grown into a spunky, busy & bright little girl over her first year! We knew that containing her in a studio setting for a cake smash just wouldn’t work, so her mama and I decided on an outdoor, summer themed Watermelon Smash! Set in her grandparents backyard, we gave her space to crawl/walk around, play and fully be herself. (With the pool nearby, full caution and safety measures were observed at all times) She hung out in the shade, wandered around the sidewalk, refused to touch grass (like shuddered at the thought of it actually), and we created some beautiful portraits. Then, we sliced up a personal sized watermelon to see what she thought about it! A little apprehensive at first, she soon figured out just how tasty a cold slice of melon is on a warm summer’s day. (It also doubles as a fancy hat!) Just as delicious as a cake smash, but unique to her Summer birthday. Her parents also wanted to use the photo session to make a HUGE announcement!! Scroll through the photos to see what Miss M had to say!
