Cake Smash :: Apple Orchard for Grace

I am beyond excited to share this apple orchard themed photo shoot with you! I had a great time designing it and putting it together for Grace and her mama. I’m not only thrilled to share it here, but also on the cover of Pop Sugar!! Woohoo! I just found out that it is being featured. You can see their full article here.

Laura, at Cake Bake Shop, made the cake and apple tarts. The entire studio and neighborhood smelled like warm apple pie! Half way through the shoot, I may have eaten 1 or 2 pies all by myself!. lol yummy yummy get in my tummy!

The superstar of the shoot, Miss Grace,  could not be any cuter.  She is an absolute doll and enjoyed every second of the apples and the cake!

As with all one year cake smashes, we started with a “clean” no cake set up. Photos By Monika brought a Fall feeling and apple smelling morning to Manhattan Beach!
