Manhattan Cake Smash | Layla

Manhattan Cake Smash

This was my first time working with little Layla. She was apprehensive of my assistant and I at first but eventually warmed up. Her expressions were incredible and I was swooning over her eyelashes. The first two setups were a bit of a challenge because she wasn’t super happy but we played songs and of course took out the cheerios which always seems to be a saving grace. I was scared for the cake smash because I did not know how she would react to touching the cake but boy was I in for a surprise. Layla smashed her cake into a million pieces. She only had a few bites of the cake but it did not matter. She was one of the best smashers ever!
