Sure enough, Ashley called me the next day to confirm that we wouldn't be in any water for our time together and I assured her that his cast wouldn't get wet. I also encouraged her to postpone the session until the cast was removed, but Ashley was bound and determined. This was to be Keegen's birthday present on his actual birthday. Period. When you're a single mom of 3 boys, you have license to be slightly determined. :) Without further adieu, here's Mr. Keegen:
Being that we were commemorating his first birthday, we felt it fitting for some smashing of a cake. One of Keegen's Godparents, Becky, was on deck to assist with this shoot and brought the main prop-the cake! She did a great job of selecting a super colorful one and brought along a "1" candle.
Why does Keegen have clothes on for this smash the cake episode? It was roughly 65ish degrees outside and slightly windy. We had plenty of wipes on hand and spare clothes for the ride home!
At first Keegen was rather shy of this bright, squishy thing before him. But Godmother, Becky, laid some frosting on his upper lip for good effect and once he got a lick of that....it was gung-ho from there! So much so, his feet wanted in on the action...
The rest of this messy face was ALL Keegen:
Will continue to pray,
