It’s Cake Smash time at my Utica, Illinois studio!! I absolutely love cake smash sessions. It was beautiful blue-eyed Lyla’s turn! Oh, we have fun celebrating! To make an already wonderful session even better Lyla’s mom brought along a vintage dress for Lyla to wear. Lyla is the third generation to wear the dress. What an amazing tradition! Lyla looked perfect in the dress.

Lyla was too funny with her cake! She really liked the cake but didn’t want to get her hands sticky with frosting. She was very happy to have Mom help her out by feeding her. I love a girl who knows what she wants. Lyla’s beautiful cake was made by W Cake Design In LaSalle, Illinois. The cake was a naked drip cake with flowers on top. It was the perfect cake for the session. I’m loving the simple look of the naked cake it was perfect with Lyla’s cute birthday outfit.

As always at Blue Truck Photography we ended Lyla’s cake smash session with tub time! Tub time never disappoints!! I’m not sure who has more fun, the birthday girl, her Mom, Grandma, or me!! Hard to tell, we all had so much fun. Bubbles and splashing, the perfect end to a perfect cake smash session. Happy Birthday, Lyla!!
