Who can resist a delicious cake smash on their first birthday?
When a cake smash shoot is planned and booked, you can guarantee some fantastic portraits full of expression. We find many clients will be looking to book a shoot such as this to celebrate a first birthday, but we love any reason to incorporate cake into a shoot. When the cake is made by the fabulous team over at Cakes by Robin, like this one (seriously beautiful cakes and equally delicious) we are always wowed and instantly crave that to die for buttercream icing.
For this special little dude, we went full on nautical, right down to a custom made beach background. With the details of the shells, netting and garland we kept the outfit (how sweet are those sea-worthy dungarees?) nice and simple. Complete with a beautifully iced Victoria sponge, some custom made letters to spell out ONE, and a single blue balloon, we had the set for the shoot done and dusted.
We adore working with clients to execute their vision for the perfectly styled shoot. Booking in advance allows both our team and the client to brainstorm for the session and to come up with something truly unique and special to mark the occasion. We recommend starting off on Pinterest to get the creative juices flowing and to check out blogs online – party planners such as our friends over at Les Enfants, will have brilliant themes showcased on a regular basis on their website and social media.
There are also some wonderful opportunities for photo shoots prior to your little one’s first birthday (and after of course!). We blogged about some key milestone ages for various types of photo sessions, a little while ago – check out the full post here.
If you would like to discuss and book a first birthday photo shoot, cake smash or any other type of shoot, contact our bookings team on firstname.lastname@example.org or better yet, give us a ring on 020 7042 9777. We can’t wait to get creating with you!
