A Fun Thirtieth Birthday Cake Smash Photoshoot
As kids, we want more than anything to grow up, but once we grow up we want to go back in time and relive the "good ol' days". A time when we didn't have bills, a job, and real responsibilities to take care of. It's fun though to do things to feel like a kid again. The latest craze was adult coloring books. There are some things that are less accepted once we reach adulthood though, like making a face at a stranger in line at the grocery store or skip down the halls at work. While still fun, you may get a different response than a 5 year old.
This adorable photo session caught my eye as I was planning my son Cooper's first birthday party for the end of this month.
Photographer, Amiee Berry of AJ's Expressions, had her friend, Jackie Slinkard, ask for a photo shoot for her 30th birthday. She wanted to do something fun and different, while putting a positive spin to celebrate this new phase of her life that sometimes has a negative connotation. The two women put their heads together to come up with an original idea.
They decided to do a cake-smash photo shoot, which is typically done for a child's first birthday. Jackie wore a gold glittery crown with "30" on the front and a tutu with her white and gold tank top that read "Birthday Girl". They also had a white cake and a very cute milestone chalkboard sign. Other than the fact that she was celebrating her thirtieth birthday and not first, the only other difference in this cake-smash photo shoot was the addition of a champagne flute and bottle of bubbly.
How fun is that?! What do you think of the unique photo shoot? I'm just mad I didn't think of it!
