A lot of photographers might say the adult birthday cake smash is “overplayed”… I say never! There are a lot of female adult cake smashes out there. But a 70-year-old man??? My dad actually asked to do one for his birthday but didn’t think I’d really make him go through with it. WRONG!!!

A little about my dad – his mom died from breast cancer when he was a teenager. He survived a tour of combat duty in Vietnam. He helped raise two daughters, including paying for their college education so they wouldn’t have to take out student loans. He FINALLY retired last year… so this was a great opportunity to celebrate the next stage of life, embrace the “Golden” years.

Just being 70 and loving life. We should all be so happy when we turn 70!

Because everyone needs a party hat and a milestone board

Just a little pre-smash taste!

Dive right in!

Those flamingos came from his yard

No holding back

Use your hands

For an awesome adult cake smash, embrace the fact you are going to make a fool out of yourself

Happy dad!

Well, that’s one way to do it

“I-feel-like-an-idiot-but-its-so-much-fun” induced hysterics. You should have seen my sister behind me. I hate that we didn’t video it

Going for it!

Yep, he went there…. If you are going to do this, you might as well go all in

He has cake in his nose…. and is still laughing


Happy birthday Dad!!!
