Pastel Rainbow Cake Smash for 1 year old Baby E with Rachel Burnside Photography, Wiltshire

It is always special when clients return to the studio to capture their baby's special first year. The changes I see each session are huge! The sleepy newborn (and sleep-deprived parents) I meet at the newborn photography session transform first into sweet, smiling sitters who love their new perspective on the world and then into giggling 1 year olds who are usually crawling and often walking for their final session. It never fails to amaze me where the time goes!

Today's blog is from Baby E's 1st birthday session. She took a little while to feel comfortable (after around 9 months babies become more aware of different adults and unfamiliar surroundings which can make them want to stay close to a parent until they feel safe) so we spent a little while playing on the bed and investigating my camera until she relaxed. After that it was all smiles!

This has to be one of my favourite cake smash photography themes (although I have so many), Pastel rainbows, stars and confetti - what's not to love! Did you know that your session includes a bespoke, handmade cake by Sugar Wish Cakes? Each cake is lovingly made to match your theme perfectly!


'Oh my goodness, I have cake in my hair!'


The bubble bath part of a Cake Smash Session is not only very practical (think of all those crumbs in the car...) but captures a whole new set of gorgeous images. Bath time is such a big part of childhood, let's make sure we record the joy of splashing in bubbles!


That face says it all!

So many amazing images in one fun session!To check availability or to book click HERE to get in touch. I would love to hear from you!
