If Kyle wasn’t busy enough he also likes to fly R/C airplanes and really enjoys rollercoaster rides. When asked what he would miss most from high school once he graduates high school, Kyle said that he will definitely miss being in the band program at Moeller.

Kyle has already started a bucket list of things he wants to accomplish after school is done. “I would like to make it onto a world class DCI drum and bugle corps. I would like to design my own roller coaster and I’d like to try and make it onto the PBA tour.”

Cincinnati Cake Smashes - Unicorns

Remember When Portraits is so excited to share one of our 2019 goals with you. Our goal is to bring you 10 themed cake smashes that we have never done before to show you what we are capable of doing. We plan to be doing model calls throughout the year looking for 11-13 month olds, boy and girls, when we are ready for that next set up. You can find our model calls on our community group on Facebook under Remember When Portraits.

I have to tell you though, I have a love/love more relationship with cake smashes. By far these are my FAVORITE sessions when little ones are involved. You get to see and document them enjoying the glory of all calories at an age where they are learning about everything. You get to see them enjoy or dislike immensely the texture, taste, smell and look of the food product put in front of them. They get to take in the sights, get messy and enjoy foods they have mostly been told they aren’t allowed to partake in. It is kind of glorious and special to be the photographer to share this moment with these little ones and their parents.

On the love more side, you have to know how much preparation can go into these sessions. Our studio coordinates the ordering of the cake, including discussing design and color. Color is actually really important to get right as if the cake doesn’t match the outfit or the backdrop this creates a LOT of work in photoshop for us. We are talking it could be hours of time we simply won’t get back because we didn’t communicate the design from the get go. Planning all these little details and allowing our creative juices to flow is what I love most.

We spend at minimum an hour prior to your arrival decorating the set. This includes any items needing to be shopped for like fresh veggies and bread for our spaghetti smash, wrapping of presents or decorating boxes to fit that Mario Bros. theme behind your child or creating snowflakes and white paper garland for that Buddy the Elf set up, and even making the balloon garland by hand. We also work with our clients to select and order your child’s costume or outfit for the shoot. We make sure we hit the budget and get everything delivered or picked up on time. It all takes time and time is valuable. That is why we offer 2 different cake smash packages: one that is simple that we can whip up the hour before you arrive or the turn key session where we do it all for you, spending hours coordinating, designing and planning every last detail where the only thing you have to do is show up with a well rested little one!

If you are interested in scheduling a cake smash or food smash session for your little one, contact us at april@rememberwhenportraits.com and let us know what you had in mind! Here is one we did last week. We partnered with Stephanie’s Cupcake Company in Maineville, Ohio for the gorgeous unicorn cake that our little model tore into with ease. I mean can you blame her?
