A Smashing Good Time

A year ago today, I posted pictures from the delivery room, celebrating the birth of Baby Cooper. Today, I had the privilege of taking pictures of his first birthday cake smash, and, it was a blast. I'm not just saying that because it was the first time in weeks and weeks that I have seen him and his parents, although, seeing them all certainly added to the enjoyment of the day, even if we did have to maintain a six foot separation between ourselves and wear masks, which, we did.

This was both my first cake smash session and my first official garage shoot. The Man-Cub provided manpower, blowing the dust and debris out of the garage with a leaf blower and setting up my lights, which I greatly appreciated.




Beth's dream theme for Cooper's first birthday party was baseball, pretty much from the day he was born, and, she wasn't going to let a little thing like a pandemic get in the way of that; luckily, between the two of us, we had more than enough baseball decor to carry the theme through the pictures.


And, also lucky for us, the birthday boy cooperated, beautifully.







I don't know how many more garage shoots are in my future, but, with this one working as well as it did, I have to say; I'm optimistic. And, damn, it was good to see our friends.
