Sam’s Second Birthday Donut Session | Cincinnati Cake Smash Photographer

Happy Second Birthday Sam!

Who says cake smash sessions are just for First Birthdays?! When you are a Cincinnati Cake Smash Photographer, you get to make your own rules and come up with something epic for your youngest son’s second birthday. Do you remember his first birthday cake smash? It was hard to come up with something that but I think I did it!

I have been planning this session for months. Sam is definitely his fathers son. He LOVES donuts, cakes, and muffins. He hasn’t really met a baked good that he doesn’t like. It seemed fitting for his birthday pictures that we document this part of his personality and do a donut session with him.

I started working with some of my favorite vendors to come up with something amazing. First thing I did was, I contacted two of my favorite bakeries in Cincinnati to create custom donuts and a custom cake. Tres Belle came up with 67 beautifully designed custom donuts to coordinate perfectly with the backdrop I picked up from Lemondrop Shop. 3 Sweet Girls Cakery designed the most amazing donut cake to match. I ordered a cute little bakers hat from The Land of Nod a few months ago. Sam’s adorable overall’s are the much desired ones from H&M that all the mom’s love! I just love how everything came together.

Second Birthday Cake SmashSam is my strong-willed kid and at first he was not happy about being told to eat donuts (what?!) but once he decided this was actually a good thing, he drove right in!

    I love that you did a cake smash with your two-year-old! It turned out so cute with the chef’s hat and colorful donuts. I’m so glad he warmed up to them!

    Thank you Corey. I admit, I was super nervous when the tears started! It gave me a whole new perspective for what my clients must feel like when their kids do the same thing <3
