Little Indian Cake Smash – OC Family Photographer

, Little Indian Cake Smash – 1st birthday Session

We just had the cutest set request! Little J had the perfect head dress for his little Indian cake smash session! He was such a happy baby and loved his little drum birthday cake (Designed and baked by French’s Cupcake Bakery in Costa Mesa). His two older brothers came along for the celebration so we were able to get a family portrait in as well! Again, thanks so much to the family for the incredible request, and to little J for being such a great baby to work with. We certainly had a blast!

Little Indian Cake Smash Props

Because we had such a special request, we needed some special props! First of all, we got the feather background tree stump at Lemondrop Backdrops. Then, MrandMrsandco. had the small wooden canoe that we purchased. Additionally, we purchased the grey and white teepee and wooden sign at Hobby Lobby. After that we got the camp fire from Target, and finally we custom made the log cake stand from wood found at Michael’s, and Mom provided the outfits and feather head dress.
