Meet Ada, she was my second baby of 2017 and she was a complete pickle! Her mummy contacted me back in January to book in her cake smash session for her first birthday! I always feel so honoured to be able to watch these little babes grow and I couldn’t believe the transformation when this little sass-pot tottered into the studio. I mean curls to die for AND a blondie!
As always i try to get the ‘portrait’ shots first but sometimes these babes just want cake! Ada happily let us play first though, not all mums want a smart party outfit, some mums like to capture the portrait section just how they are in their fav day-to-day outfit. BTW i totally had to go out and buy this outfit for my toddler – its SERIOUSLY cute ❤
Ada’s daddy is a mechanic and bought her a gorgeous vintage car for Christmas so mum asked if we could feature it, this is where the bulk of her portrait section was spent 🙂
If little one is enjoying themselves i do a quick mini series which always looks cute printed in their nursery where they spell out the word ‘one’.
Next up, if you want them (and i kinda push for it as i know how few photos i have of me with my babes) we do family or mummy shots, this usually ties in with a quick pit stop for snacks and milk too 🙂
Then its cake time ❤ ❤ ❤
We actually replicated Ada’s actual birthday party cake here in miniature form. All cakes can be made to accommodate any intolerance and allergies and are bake by the stunning Katharine over at Cakes by Katharine in Cambourne. Pretty much always at least half the cake is safe enough to take home and enjoy in the afternoon with a nice cuppa 🙂 After cake theres always a bath right? Hands down the easiest and funnest way to get yourself all cleaned up right?! Ada agrees 🙂
And thats pretty much a wrap, if babe hasn’t exhausted themselves ready for a good old sleep on the way home then i do a few naked shots, Ada was not surprisingly spent so we just got this super cute pic. during your session i try to capture additional behind the scenes images to help you remember the day and the funny things that happened, heres a couple of Adas ❤
If you would like to book your session after reading this please pop on over to the shop here to secure your date and i will help you plan your cake smash 🙂
