Oh, oh, oh!
Let’s go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let’s go fly a kite!

When we received this “Kites and Clouds” Cake Smash submission from Shannon of Rae of Life Photography, we immediately fell in love. We’re so excited to bring you this adorable first birthday cake smash session for Milestone Monday.

What We Love: 

Shannon: I worked really hard to incorporate a fun, unique, and bright colored theme for spring! Mom provided the cake which was absolutely adorable, and I created a setup and backdrop to match. I simply bought a big book of scrapbook paper for $5.00, and folded the paper into kites. I added ribbons and embellishments, tossed some cotton around for clouds, and it was amazing! I was very excited to see my vision come to life with this session!

Lisa and Rachel: What an adorable idea for a cake smash session! Shannon’s hard work really paid off — we love seeing how Shannon brought this session from concept to reality. The colors are so great and all of the embellishments really bring this Kites and Clouds cake smash session together. Shannon also captured some great expressions and those beautiful blue eyes – they really look great against this super fun and adorable backdrop.

Camera Gear: Canon 6D with a 35mm lens.
