Celebrating a 1st Birthday with a Cake Smash Photo Session

Celebrating a 1st birthday with a cake smash photo session is one of my favourite sessions. The 1st birthday is a big milestone and one worth marking. So why not have a cake and smash it!?

Now cake smash sessions are super fun, but sometimes little ones get a little bit overwhelmed when they first walk into my studio. We may get a few tears. But it is not long before we are all laughing and giggling and, best of all, smashing that cake!

We always start our cake smash sessions with a few traditional portraits. this helps us take our time whilst we settle in. Then the cake smash begins. Sometimes we need a little encouragement from Mum or Dad, but for little Savannah once she had that first taste of cake, she was hooked!

Whilst the cake smash is about the fun and cuteness of your little one having their first birthday cake, it is also about capturing details. All those little details that make up your chubby little One Year Old.

Little Savannah had the most amazing eyelashes; the cutest toes; the chubbiest little baby wrists; the tiny baby curls; the biggest blue eyes. So we made sure all those details were captured.

After all that cake, what better way to clean up then with a bubble bath!? Especially, for those babies who did not love getting messy with the cake smash, they all love the bubble bath. Here we capture lots of smiles and giggles.

As you can tell, Savannah needed no encouragement to either smashing her cake or splashing in the bath. We got so many adorable portraits. Celebrating her 1st birthday with a cake smash and splash was a definite win for Savannah!

After all that hard work little Savannah needed a couple of minutes with her bunny to rest and I just had to capture these last 2 portraits of her being adorable!
