Katy Baby Photographer | Alex 1st Year Cake Smash

I have known Alex since… well… before he was born!

I am lucky to count his mommy, Kylee, as one of my best friends. Three years ago she and I both moved into the Katy area and became fast friends. 9 months later we both had our first babies. She is the one who sparked my desire to begin the journey of learning to be a photographer.

 Alex is her second child and fact that he just turned one BLOWS MY MIND! *Insert exploding noise here*

We of course HAD to celebrate with a fun Cake Smash mini session!

It was so fun to have him come in and play with us for a bit. I liked that part- but liked the part where we brought out this cake (so cute huh!?) from Nothing Bunt Cakes EVEN MORE.

He got a little taste of the frosting first…. (as did I and oh my goodness it was delicious) and LOVED IT. Nothing makes a little boy smile quite like a bit of sugar.

Then he dug in.

Nothing makes this little boy quite as unhappy as dirty hands… So this gentleman got a fork. SO CUTE. Seriously. A little man after my own heart.

After came the sugar high….

And crash…

We went for a bath in the wild sunflowers of Katy. They are EVERYWHERE this time of year. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place!

All clean with some warm water, bubbles, and flowers to eat (Yes, that happened apparently they weren’t as good as the cake) – He was one happy camper.

Oh gosh he’s going to hate these one day… but his mother will always LOVE them. I can see it now… His girlfriend comes home to meet the family in college and Kylee pulls out the photo album… The harassment and embarrassment set in…

I’m just glad I get to instigate such a fun senario… even if it is 20 years away. Kylee- you’ll have to tell me all about it when it happens. Yes. We will STILL be friends.

Thank you Kylee for asking me to do this. I adore doing things like this. It was my pleasure!
