Reece's Mum got in touch whilst I was running an offer to photograph certain cake smash themes that I wanted to try and she chose the 'Blue' set up. I knew that I wanted to use the blue background paper and my clue cake stand and I loved the single tier style cakes and wanted to use one for this rather than the giant cupcake. Luckily Vicki over at Smashing Cakes is a mind reader and super creative so I can loosely explain to her the colours and design I'd like and she'll come up with an amazing cake, she really is a gem! I wanted to keep this set up quite minimal so that the baby was the main focus so I thought that the balloon style bunting would be cute...
The session started with a mini portrait session, this is perfect for updating your little ones photographs as well as for gifts for family. This part only takes 5-10 minutes and then it's time to get ready for the cake :)
Reece LOVED his cake and soon got stuck in to it....he had a few little tastes to start then started to smash it up, he had an amazing time!!
Once the cake was smashed and Reece was done it was time for the splash, most babies really enjoy the splash part of the session and Reece did too. The splash is a great way to get some fun images for your cake smash gallery and means your little one will go home nice and clean!
If you are interested in booking a 1st Birthday cake smash session just send me a message here and we can check availability around your baby's birthday.
