High on the 1st Birthday To Do list for parents is…  a cake smash. And well, why not! It isn’t every year your baby will be turning 1. So why not do it in style!

As well as everyday snaps, most families choose a professional photographer, like me to capture special memories and mile stones. In recent months I have become more aware of creating memories before it’s too late to treasure.

So this cake smash and splash was a cake smash with a difference.

We decided to go for mini cupcakes instead of a large cake for this cake smash. Now I am not going to lie…. we had to try really hard to get smiles. But I am so happy we persevered with little chocolate buttons and Mum, Auntie and Grandma were there too to make everyone feel at ease.  I am so  happy with the photos. You can just see the curiosity and intrigue as the photo-shoot went on.

Messy play is so good for children to develop their imagination, confidence and they love to explore. If you want some more ideas for messy play for you child, have a look here.

What do you think your little one would prefer for their cake smash – a large giant cake or mini cupcakes? To enquire and book yours message –
