When Isla’s mom reached out to talk about her cakesmash she said that she wanted her to be a guest on “Watch What Happens Live” which is hosted by the very handsome Andy Cohen. She is a huge fan of the show and also a big fan of Lisa Rinna who is a frequent guest on the show. If you click here, you can see a clip I based the cakesmash on. This setup took months to plan out! I was stalking tarsal pages to find the right bookshelf, had my neighbor drive all the way to Norwalk to pick it up for me. The carpet came from Wayfair, the canvases of course had to be part of the setup. I tried to match their outfits based on the above clip I mentioned. Mom brought along the bunny wrapped in plastic, something only WWHL insiders will know about. We also had his dog there, well in a plush version, but that’s the best we could do. Haha. The mazel mug cake could not be missing and of course, the main centerpiece was the big WWHL sign made my baker and friend James Ramos. We were planning on just using a cardboard cutout of Andy but then I remembered that I had another cakesmash that day and I asked mom if we could borrow her child to model as Andy. She was immediately game, being a huge fan of the show herself. What fun we had! These two were impossible to keep still and no one, except me cared about the cake. It really is a shame when kids don’t want sweets. It always makes my heart bleed. One day will miss the day when we offered them a whole cake, mark my words!
These images came out so cute, I couldn’t wait to post them! And once we posted a little behind the scenes Video on Instagram Andy himself commented on it!!!! OMG!!
That was already majorly exciting but then the next day someone from the show reached out and asked if they could use the clip-on air! WHAATT!!! I could not wait to see what they had planned for it and sure enough, we earned Andy’s Mazel of the Day!!!!!!
This has been such a fun ride and I am so very grateful for all the love once again! We also got invited to be in the audience of his show which will tape later this month. Can you imagine? We truly have so much to be thankful for. If you have never seen this show, now it is time to check it out!!
Cakesmash Photography Connecticut
Thank you for reading on! I hope you enjoyed viewing this cakesmash photography session on the blog post as much as I enjoyed capturing it. A little bit more about me, I am an on-location, natural light, lifestyle and portrait Photographer, focusing on Maternity, Newborn, Baby, Families and Children of all ages in Connecticut. In addition, I have a beautiful photography studio located in Milford, Connecticut, which is best suited for Newborn, Maternity and Milestone Photography Sessions for children three to twelve months. Curious where you will be going for your cakesmash? Take a peek at my cozy state of the art studio located right off Exit 35|I95.
Cakesmash photography sessions are such a fun way to capture your little one turning one! They take a lot of planning, so ideally we would like about 6 weeks notice to set them up. If you already have a theme in mind, even better, I will work with you to have your vision come alive. I have tons of different backdrops that you can choose from to customize your session. We will talk about colors, themes, and most importantly cake! This will be a fun shoot to capture the personality of your little one at this special age, they only turn 1 once, right?
To get excited and start getting some ideas, feel free to browse some older cakesmash session on the blog. This way you can get an idea of what to expect before booking your very own cakesmash photography session.
