Gale Force Winds and a One Year Old Champ {Smash Cake}

“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” — Dorothea Lange

This is Harold.  AND his parents of course, but come on… HAROLD!  How cute is he?!  One year old and sweet as can be.

This was a challenging weather day, gale force winds and a cold undercurrent made it an interesting one to photograph (and flatter) my awesome clients.  We moved often, chased the sun and searched for places with protection from the elements.  All the while wanting beautiful backgrounds.  We did family shots and at the end, a smash cake for our little friend.  I think we nailed it.  This was a diverse shoot and a great example of what you can get at a winter, outdoor smash cake session.

Take note of the really cool car Harold’s dad made.  What a lucky kiddo!
