Marina Turns One | Waterson Photography - Ajax-Pickering Cake Smash Photographer
It's true what they say…that some girls are just born with glitter in their veins. Meet Marina :)
I first met Marina when she was six months old, when she visited Waterson Photography for a Milestone Session. A total ham in front of the camera, it was clear that she was most comfortable when decked out in a frilly dress, jewels and matching hat. She LOVES sparkly things!
For her first year Cake Smash, the colour of choice was purple…her beautiful, jeweled tutu, the stunning cake, the choice of backdrops and props…all designed with a fun and messy (and girly!) cake smash in mind. But wait…cake smash = icing on fingers, right? Not for this princess! Marina would have none of it!
We tried all the tricks, such as stuffing her favourite Cheerios in the side of the cake, putting her favourite little toy beside (and then inside) the cake, hoping to entice her to come closer and perhaps dig a little through the layers of sweet icing. NOT A CHANCE!!
(We had to laugh as we watched Marina walk AROUND the perimeter of the studio rather than across the set, just to ensure she didn't make contact with the cake).
While Mom and Dad were hoping for some messy images full of smashed cake and icing, it was not to be. But despite Marina's unwillingness to get messy for us, we were able to capture some beautiful portraits of Marina celebrating her big day…HER way (as a real princess would)!!
