It’s here! It’s finally here! It’s Penny’s birthday week! And to kick things off, I thought I’d finally share the Donut Smash photoshoot that I did for her when we were in Atlanta visiting my sister. You may have already seen most of these photos if you follow me on Instagram (and, uh, all of them if we’re friends on Facebook, since I just couldn’t wait, hehe), but my totally unbiased opinion is that they’re great enough to warrant a second look, hehe.
I was nervous about being able to pull off this photoshoot, and contemplated hiring a professional photographer several times because I just wasn’t sure I’d be able to get the feel, look, and shots that I was hoping for. I figured as long as I just got one good picture of her digging into a donut, though, it would be fine.
(Tip: I got the donuts for her shoot from Dunkin’ Donuts, and the amount of sprinkles was laughably sparse. So I used a spray bottle to re-wet the icing and dumped a truckload of extra sprinkles on top — made for a much more photogenic donut spread!)
Anyway, as I think you can see, it turned out all that worry was for naught! Penny was a total photoshoot ROCKSTAR. She was so well-behaved, in such a good mood, I actually ended up with way too many perfect shots! Girl just really loves donuts, I guess. 😉
Yep, totally worth the intense sugar crash we all experienced after the photoshoot, hehe. (What, like I’m supposed to buy 2 dozen donuts and 50 munchkins and just not eat any of them? HA!) And the perfect way to commemorate our own little munchkin nearing the end of her turn ’round the sun! (And I’m only like 35% in denial right now, so, y’know, progress!)
Donut grow up, Penny — it’s a trap!
