My youngest turned 2!!! I have seen a lot of paint smash session in the photography realm lately for when a child turns 2. I thought it was cute and looked like another fun way to get those great candid pictures. Babies and toddlers can be a challenge to photograph but when you get those candid shots they are truly adorable. That is one reason why I love cake smash sessions. It is all fun and mess so candid shots are in abundance usually. The paint smash session was no different.
My little guy was a little timid which was kind of weird. He didn’t really want to get his hands all covered in paint so we gave him a paint brush. He, however, had no problem tasting the paint. Good thing it is non toxic. He quickly realized it wasn’t tasty. My oldest son was feeling jealous so when we were through we swapped clothes and let him go at it as well. He got a little more messy. Also, the clothes fit my 4 1/2 year old better than my 2 year old. Go figure. The simplicity of the session is part of what makes it so great. I kept the background clean and the clothes plain. The focus was meant to go on the bright paint colors and the child’s face. The session was quick, easy, and painless. It was also a lot fun for everyone!
Below are a few of my favorites. Book your paint session now. Your child can be any age to enjoy it!
