Cake smashes are always so much fun to photograph! Little L is turning 1 and his mama wanted to be able to remember this time forever. She chose a nautical theme for the images to match the decor of his bedroom.
We started off with some formal portraits. L was on the move and while it was challenge to him him on the set, we were able to capture his new found independence!
Next we set up our cake smash! L didn't waste anytime digging into his cake. This was his first time trying cake and he sure loved it. His talented mama purchased a plain cake from the bakery and decorated it with the shells to match the nautical theme she chose. The bow tie and anchor diaper cover are sewn by me and provided as part of your session fee.
I don't think he stopped smiling once the whole session. I love capturing the small details as well...these little hands will never be this small again! Look at those adorable little dimples <3
Finally we set up the bubble bath. Most kids like this part best and so did L. He splashed and splashed and was upset only when it was time to come out!
It was such a pleasure have L back in the studio (I also did Christmas and Spring themed sessions for their family). It is amazing how fast kids grow and getting portraits done is the best way to capture these special moments in time.
Please contact me if you are interested in booking a cake smash for your little one. As with all sessions, all decor and outfits are provided and I will help you plan your session around the theme or colours of your choice. The only thing you need to bring is a cake, and I can also provide a list of local bakeries with various price points.
