I have a fun and messy cake smash photo session to show you. Sophia-Belle reached one more beautiful milestone, she just turned ONE. We celebrated her first birthday with beautiful pink chocolate cake and she managed to smash it really well.
You might ask what is 1st Birthday Cake smash?
I have been doing cake smash photos in Edinburgh for past few years now and it is such a fun to get these messy photos done. I keep it simple, but nice. I prefer background to be plain so we can concentrate on baby and cake eating tasks. Family is most welcome to bring their own props, set ups etc.
Birthday cake smash session are becoming increasingly popular and you can do them in different styles. Sometimes little ones get dressed with funny hats and boys get outfits with ties etc.
Stage 1 - Baby Photos
First we start with nice baby portrait photos, standing, sitting, crawling and everything else they are into at that certain time. You could also do a nice family portrait and if you have, a sibling portraits too. If you have pets, they are welcome to join it 🙂 Done those before.
You can see more beautiful examples of my baby photography here. Some inspiration for sure.
Stage 2 - Cake Smash
After baby portraits are done we bring out most important bit, nice soft giant chocolate birthday cup cake 🙂 You have choices of colours and our local bakery loves baking these. Little ones love to explore and find out what is that colourful tower and of course then fun begins with destroying the cake. Sometime we need a little bit of encouragement, but generally it all goes really well.
See my cake smash photography portfolio here. Definitely very messy there. Plus lots of splashes in bath too.
Stage 3 of the photo session. Bath splashes.
Once we are done with cake bit and everything is in full mess, we bring out the bath and wash our little birthday people. Let them splash and start the bubble machine 🙂 Trust me it can get really flooded around my place. Splashes go everywhere and trust me no encouragement needed here 🙂
Here is photo gallery of little Sophia-Belle's 1st birthday cake smash.
