What a wonderful way to celebrate sweet little Albert's 1st birthday! As Wiltshire's leading Cake Smash photographer, I love to bring your vision for your baby's special birthday photo shoot to life.
In her pre-session consultation, Albert's mummy told me that she loved the idea of hot air balloons and fluffy clouds for his cake smash session, and that Albert looks lovely in blue to match his eyes. What could be more perfect!
I designed the set around her ideas and created a magical scene with twinkling clouds and shades of blue. Albert's outfit also co-ordinated perfectly, and just look at those amazing blue eyes!
All cake smash photo shoots begin with some clean photographs of your baby, before we introduce the cake. Albert loved to sit on and in the props and showed off his amazing walking skills, enabling me to capture this important milestone for his proud mummy and daddy.
You only turn 'ONE' once, so celebrate it!
Then we introduced Albert to his beautiful cake, designed and hand-made as always by the amazing Sharon at Sugar Wish Cakes in Salisbury. She makes each cake to co-ordinate with your chosen theme perfectly and is amazing at catering for allergies and any special requests. Most importantly, her cakes taste out of this world too!
Albert started his smashing with the icing and after a cautious start, was soon enjoying his cake enormously.
At this point, I introduce a wooden spoon to encourage babies to explore the cake in a new way and maybe eat some too.
Albert smashed his cake like a pro; very little encouragement was needed!
That's a lovely bit of cake Albert!
I love to get parents involved too and always make sure they have the chance to try some of the delicious cake.
Sticky fingers and jammy toes are a given during our cake smash sessions.
So it's perfect to finish with a relaxing bubble bath. This is the 'splash' part of our Cake Smash and Splash session, which ensures your baby is clean and cake free for you to take home. As you can see, Albert loved his bath almost as much as his cake!
Bath-time is such a big part babyhood, yet how many parents have professional images of their little one enjoying a bath? This part of the Cake Smash experience often elicits the biggest smiles!
After his splash in the bath, Albert cuddled up in a big fluffy towel for the final shots of his session. I'm sure he slept well in the car on the way home!
