Meet Reuben! This was the third time I got to meet this gorgeous little boy - I have had the pleasure of watching him grow from a tiny newborn all the way up until his first birthday! It feels so special to have clients returning time and time again with their babies and it's honestly been amazing getting to know him and his lovely family. Scroll on to see more photos from Reuben's Boho Teddy Bear themed Cake Smash and Splash session!

Such a lovely Cake Smash & Splash setup for baby Reuben's session!




Part 1 - The Portrait Session

Upon arrival, Reuben was dressed in a lovely outfit that his mummy and daddy had chosen just for the occasion! I always start out the session by capturing a few shots of the little ones in a nice outfit, either chosen from the studio wardrobe or brought along from home. I always aim to capture some classic and timeless portraits that aren't necessarily Cake Smash themed, so that my clients are able to take home a gorgeous and varied gallery.

Reuben really enjoyed playing with my wooden blocks and I love capturing these adorable, natural shots! At this age it's all about engaging them with songs, games and play during the session. The most important thing to me is that you and your little ones have a great time in my studio, I want the experience to be fun and memorable - and of course, that means you'll get some stunning images to take home, capturing those authentic smiles and giggles we all love!




Part 2 - The Cake Smash! I absolutely fell in love with this gorgeous boho teddy bear themed setup - it all just came together so nicely and I'm so pleased with the final outcome. Reuben really enjoyed his cake and loved showing off his clapping!

After around 5 minutes of smashing up his cake, Reuben decided he had had enough and was ready to start exploring the studio a bit more! I love this simple shot of him below, capturing his gorgeous big, blue eyes!

One of my favourite parts of shooting a Cake Smash Session is seeing their reaction to having their cake placed in front of them - it can vary from disbelief to pure and utter joy! It's very likely the first time in their life that they've had a whole cake put in front of them to do with what they wish, so you never quite know how they're going to react!




Part 3 - It's bath time! What better way to end a Cake Smash session than with a nice, warm bubble bath to get all cleaned up?

Just how sweet is this little face, like butter wouldn't melt! Reuben really enjoyed all parts of his Cake Smash & Splash session but he particularly enjoyed splashing around in my white miniature roll top bath! Being able to capture baby Reuben's first year has been such an honour and an absolute pleasure. I hope you enjoyed looking through a few of my favourite images from his Boho Teddy Bear themed Cake Smash & Splash session!


Are you looking to book a cake smash session for your little one?

My cake smash & splash sessions start with capturing a few shots of your little one in an outfit of your choice (either one picked out of my studio wardrobe or one you've brought yourself). Then we get your little one changed into their cake smash outfit and let them have some fun getting stuck into their cake! Some children are initially not that keen on getting messy and may need a bit of gentle encouragement, others take to it straight away and relish the opportunity to get messy! The final part of the session is a nice, warm bath in my washtub with lots of bubbles.

A Cake Smash & Splash is a fun-packed session and a unique way to commemorate a birthday, whether that be a 1st, 2nd or 3rd birthday!

Each and every session is bespoke and can be tailor made to your specific requirements. If you've got a particular theme in mind, please get in touch and I'll see what I can do!
