Sweet Dylan visited my photography studio near Amesbury for his 1st birthday cake smash photo shoot in January. Despite the wintry weather, Dylan's nautical cake smash themed photo shoot made me think of summer and warm beach days! This little man loves the seaside, so a theme filled with boats, star fish and shells suited him perfectly.
He is also an amazing little walker already. Around 50% of my 1st birthday babies are walking by their cake smash session and I love it because they can do so much more with the cake. See further down this post for how things went once we got messy!
Our cake smash photo shoots always start with some beautiful clean portraits of your baby before the messy cake smashing fun begins.
Dylan's beautiful and delicious cake was prepared by my amazing cake maker Sugar Wish Cakes, based in Salisbury. She is fabulous at designing the perfect cake for your photo shoot and they always taste amazing. She's great at catering for little ones with allergies too.
Dylan started off delicately with his cake. Tasting little bots around the edges just to check that it was worth eating!
What happened next was a master class in how to smash a cake! We really were left with just crumbs by the time he had finished. Great job Dylan!
Then on to a much needed bath to wash those sticky fingers and toes, and just about all of him really!
And finally to finish the session a lovely soft, warm towel and his favourite shell to hold again. Well done Dylan, you smashed it!
