...my cute little cupcake!
The props behind the photoshoot: When I decided to do the cupcake theme, I had initially planned on just making the cupcakes myself. But then when I made plans to have lunch with Megan in Portland, I decided I better get those cupcakes from Saint Cupcake.
Haven't been to Saint Cupcake? Oh, man. They have the best cupcakes. Andrea and I did a cupcake search in Portland, and of all our taste tests Saint Cupcake's was the best. Especially their coconut one. Delish.
Previously, I'd just been to the store in NW Portland, but on Friday I ventured out to the store in SE Portland because I heard they had party supplies. They did, and so I snagged myself those super cool alphabet cups. I really wanted to buy about a dozen other things, but fortunately (for my wallet), I was already carrying the diaper bag, Addie in the carseat, a box of cupcakes, and a stack of alphabet cups. My hands were full.
The story behind the photoshoot:The outdoor shots were taken on Friday primarily because I didn't want to wait until the next day to each a cupcake. Those cupcakes are seriously good! When my favorite neighbor cousin came over to hold Addie, I promptly enlisted her help in taking pictures. The light was good, and there wasn't any wind, and Addie was in a generally good mood, so I snapped up a couple dozen pictures. Donnelle made sure Addie didn't fall off the table (or out of the bowl), as well as kept the curious cat off the table.
Bonus C's for the shot: Cousin and Cat.
Unfortunately, I'm still trying to figure out how to use my dad's fancy camera and misfocused nearly all of the photos.
Day 2 of the photoshoot (I do not plan on doing two days of photoshoots in the future), I had to take the picture inside because it was too windy outside and the cups kept falling over. With a new basket prop provided by my mom, and Jason's help in keeping Adelynn safe (as well as some serious lighting help in Photoshop), I got the inside shots. You might notice that there are significantly fewer cupcakes in the indoor shots.
Addie smashed one with her foot. As for the others?
Well, I told you those cupcakes were good.
