1st Birthdays are best celebrated with cake! And a 1st Birthday Cake Smash and Splash Portrait session is a perfect way to do it!
A gorgeous 1 year old, loads of coloured balloons, cute decorations, a cake and a bubble bath! What could go wrong?
But not every one year old is as eager to dive into the cake and smash it apart as you may think. Sometimes we need to offer a little encouragement. A little incentive. Perhaps a little taste of the icing to encourage that first nibble. Sometimes a spoon can help get the little birthday boy or girl into the right frame of mind as to what they should do with this cake that we have placed down in front of them.
And then sometimes, we need Dad to jump on in and give a demonstration about what the little one should do. And if nothing else, watching Dad attack a cake with his mouth at least provides lots of giggles and smiles. Even if still not super keen on joining in the fun himself.
Despite sometime not being super keen on the smash part of a cake smash and splash session, no baby can resist the fun and joy of a bubble bath to end the session! With the bible machine pumping out a stream of big bubbles overhead, and a white claw-footed tub filled with bubble bath, there are always plenty of smiles, laughs, giggles and splashing!
