Newport Beach Cake Smash – Race Car Birthday Session
More cake smash sessions are on the way! This theme was new for us so we had to hit the road and look for some cool race car props. We ended up finding some great stuff at Hobby Lobby. The had a bunch of vintage replica tin signs and oil cans that were perfect for this Newport Beach cake smash session. We couldn’t find a race car backdrop that we liked, so we ended up printing or own on our awesome new Canon Pro-2000 printer.
The cake was made by our favorite bakery in Costa Mesa – French’s Cupcake Bakery, of course! One of the best photos in this session was the last photo, when his older brother and sister jumped in to help! He wasn’t sure about smashing cake, so his siblings showed him how it’s done. Some kids aren’t into getting messy but we always find a way to give them a hand.
