Huxley's Cake Smash

A very hungry little caterpillar turned one a few weeks ago now and I had the privilege of putting together a special cake smash for him.

His Mom and I discussed themes at length before she finally mentioned that she loved the Very Hungry Caterpillar book by Eric Carle. I immediately jumped on board and started brainstorming some inspiration. I send Huxley's mom a few sample ideas of banners and cakes and outfits and she responded that she was envisioning him actually being the chubby little caterpillar....

Back to the drawing board I went! Cake Smashes by Fawn Lily Photography, Sidney based Newborn, Baby and Child Photographer are totally custom designed for you and I love a good challenge! So please, make me stretch! Huxley's mom and I discussed a bit more what she was picturing and soon an idea cake to mind and I got to work,

Here is little Hux with his adorable cake by Jessica Paxman who blogs over at Water and Lemons. The felt banner was custom made for this session also.

And, here he is as a Very Hungry Caterpillar

What do you think? Did we nail this vision or what? I custom knit a romper and caterpillar hat for Hux. I also custom painted a backdrop to look like a page right out of Eric Carle's iconic book: The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I tried to incorporate Mom's cute idea without going too costume crazy and I think it turned out perfectly!

Hux had a great time in the spotlight. He was all smiles for mom and loved his post cake smash bath the most! As always, his Cake Smash session featured a special first birthday portrait, the cake smash, and a little tub bath afterwards. Custom decorations and prop setups and outfits were provided by Fawn Lily Photography, Sidney BC Baby and Children Photographer.
