Cake Smash  Photo Shoot

A Cake smash is a great way to mark your babies first birthday. These sessions are all about making memories even they can look back at. They are great fun and a unique way to record your babies first birthday. All the usual rules go out the window with a cake smash and its time to get messy.

These sessions start with a portrait session of your baby, then the fun begins. I put the cake down and let them go for it...... the messier the better

Once the mess is made its time to get cleaned up, this is when I get the bath tub filled with lots of bubbles. The bath splash creates the most gorgeous images of your baby having fun, these are very natural photos.

All cake smash photo shoots include a butter cream cake and decorations to match your chosen colour scheme. My Mini digital collection does not include the portrait session before the cake smash or the bath splash.

We had a great 1st birthday cake smash with Mel. She is lovely and created a relaxed atmosphere which led to some fab photos, it was so hard to choose our favourites! I would definitely recommend her 😃
