A cake smash photo session is a fun, joyful way to commemorate the milestone of your little one’s first birthday. Capture your baby’s surprise, curiosity and delight as they tear into their first taste of sugar. A cake smash is a great way to express your baby’s unique personality in a relaxed and carefree way.
The session can be done at my home studio in Huntingdon or at outdoor location.
Story telling & emotive cake smashes.Surely that can't be a thing.But it's what I wanted.A celebration of their 1st birthday that showed more.I wanted your baby to dictate the best way to capture them.Not a pre-planned workflow.Your images should tell a story.The inquisitive finger twirling the drops of water on the floor.Or the independent foot sneaking out of the tub.The excited squeal with the balloon.The tired thumb suck, fingers gently curling her hair.These moments reveal so much more than a standard smiley portrait.Because for me it's these unplanned moments, these memories & emotions that matter. They're what I always want to capture.
It's in the little things.An outstretched arm & the scrunch of a nose.Those first wobbly steps on tiny tip toes.A sweet little giggle when you sing a song.These perfect details that won't last too long.For our babies grow each night they're asleep.So we capture memories now to cherish & keep.To look back & remember how small they once were.Because time has a habit of going in a blur.
What's the one thing about your babies you wish you could remember forever.Like really, really remember, every single detail?For me it's their hands around my neck as they cuddle.The way they talk & the sweet mispronunciations.Or the smell of their little heads when they were babies.I'm desperate to hold onto these moments.We're lucky now that we can capture photos & videos.Because although they can't take us back entirely.To feel, smell, experience that moment again.At least they're there to help remind us.
