Greendale Cake Smash
Sweet Jackson did a fantastic job during this Greendale cake smash! I feel like parents come into my studio and can be a bit nervous how their kiddo will behave! Jax’s Mom had booked his session, and let me know she has ZERO expectations for how things would go! She couldn’t have had a more laid back, easy going attitude about Jax’s cake smash. Quite honestly, THIS is the way to be when parents bring their kids into my Greendale studio.
I truly believe kids, even one year olds can sense feelings from adults. When a parent comes in and has little to no expectations for their child’s session, especially a cake smash the child tends to do an amazing job! On the other end, I’ve had parents come in with big expectations as to how things will go, even if they don’t communicate this to me – I can tell. Often times, this leads to children being upset or stressed out themselves. Although I try my hardest to get little ones’ to smile and feel comfortable, having an upset or stressed child makes parents leave feeling disappointed. It’s almost as if the child senses the stress of the parent. It’s very important for Mom’s and Dad’s to understand their one year old doesn’t know what they are supposed to do. Children aren’t in my Greendale studio to “preform” for anyone, just simply to have FUN!
This Greendale cake smash went SO great, and I really do think it’s because of Mom’s laid back attitude. Jackson smiled, and was happy the entire smash and I love the outcome!
