There are a few causes that I won’t hesitate to donate to and The Buster Foundation is one of them. Pit bulls hold a very special place in my heart as I’ve owned a few myself (if you’ve been following me for long you’ve definitely seen pictures of Piglet) and have fostered a few until they found forever homes. So I was more than excited when Nicki told me she won my donated gift card, asked if I would be her Ann Arbor family photographer, and if she could bring along BooBoo (Buster alumni). Of course because pets are always family in my book!
She also said that her son was about to turn one and wanted to get some photos of him to celebrate the milestone. In true celebratory fashion I suggested that we do some family portraits first then end with a cake smash. We talked over the theme, I planned out the backdrop for the day, and busted out some of my own DIY skills to make things happen (I even made an Instagram video about it). And despite the poor guy not feeling the greatest, we got some really cute images of his special day.
Isn’t that cake just fabulous? One of my incredibly crafty brides made it based of a photo I sent her. I had her make two just in case there were tweaks that needed to be made I wanted to make sure all the bugs were worked out ahead of time. When she brought over the first cake I was seriously impressed, I knew she was creative, but that blew me out of the water (hahaha no pun intended).
