Kathryn's Cake Smash!

Kathryn is 13.5 months old, and we finally got to do her cake smash photo shoot this past weekend.  Every single weekend for the past 6 weeks, one (or more) of us has been sick with something or another.  So even though I intended to do it at 12 months, it just didn't happen!

It was pretty entertaining to let her play with the cake, but she didn't get into it as much as we thought she would.  Lately her appetite has been insatiable, so we thought she might inhale the cake faster than I could take pictures of it.  But she was pretty dainty about it, and even when we helped her along with a few smears and handfuls of cake, she wasn't a huge fan.  Oh well.

Lollipop Girls

My girls.  I love them.  I'm trying to practice my studio photography work, and it's really quite funny trying to teach myself from youtube videos and various websites.  I wish I had the time for a real class.  So much more efficient.

This photo is definitely not going to win any studio photography awards.  The lighting is pretty blah and I'm sure it breaks some rules in terms of angles of light and reflectors and white balance.  

But I love it.  It shows my girls' funny personalities.  I love Kathryn's tongue coming out at the exact moment that Alex goes to swipe a lick from her GIGANTIC lollipop.  I love Alex's hand that is about to jump off her lap-- I can just feel the excitement in her very core, and I can hear what must be going through her brain...."CANNNNNDDDDYYY!!!!"
