Carter | Under the Sea Cake Smash!

 The first time I met this sweet little bug Carter was only 9 days new and it was love at first sight! Not only did I adore him but I loved his parents and I am so happy that they are apart of the Brandie Coe Photography family!! Since Carter was just a baby, his mama has called him her little Turtle so we knew that his Cake smash had to accompany a theme that suited her “little turtle”:)So we put our heads together and came up with an under the sea cake smash theme that was bright and fun!

Carter’s cake was made by For Goodness Cake by Lubka and it couldn’t have been more perfect! The detail that crazy talented lady puts into her cakes is jaw dropping and I LOVE HER to PIECES!  You need to get your cake from her for your next event… you will not be disappointed!

Since Carters Cake wasn’t completely demolished by the end of his shoot, we got to spend more time with them over a cup of tea and a piece of cake.  During our little hang out, Carter climbed our stairs all by himself for the first time! It was so cool and the look on his face was priceless! He was so proud and so was his mommy! He just wanted to get up to Jaxon’s room so badly so he could play with all his cool toys…. this little man is one determined babe!

Okay, time to dive into this gallery of Carter’s first birthday cake smash. It will not disappoint. I don’t think a baby boy could get any cuter then him and I am sure it speaks true to his mom and dad when I say, I wish I could bottle him up at this age so he never grew up… they do so quickly and it has been an honour watching him grow up in front of my lens!

What a cutie pie! Carter is adorable. The photograher did a great job capturing Carter’s various moods on his 1st Birthday. The creator of his cake was also fantastic. It appears that the cake was as tasty as it was beautiful.
