Meet Little M! A little boy with a huge personality and the biggest, most beautiful blue eyes! His mummy had chosen the colour scheme for his Cake Smash & Splash session - dark blues, baby blues and greys. I love how these 3 colours go together and I think this setup came together really well! Scroll on to see some more photos from this fun-filled Cake Smash & Splash session ♡
Part 1 - The Portrait Session Upon arrival, Little M 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. In this case, his mummy and daddy had brought an outfit from home and I absolutely love their choice! Don't his little converse shoes just complete the look?
Little M wasn't too sure of getting in front of the camera to start with, but with a bit of encouragement from mummy and daddy he quickly warmed up and gained in confidence by the minute - and soon he was full of smiles! Some little ones are a bit more hesitant to start with - and that's absolutely fine! They're coming into a new environment and all of the attention and focus is suddenly on them, which can sometimes be a bit overwhelming to start with. As with all of my sessions, my Cake Smash & Splash sessions are very child-led - so we let your little one decide what pace to go at.
At this age it's all about engaging them with songs, games and play during the session. Little M thought it was hilarious to watch daddy play peek-a-boo! The most important thing to me is that you and your little one 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! This image pretty much sums up how Little M felt about his cake. I think to say he loved it would be a massive understatement!
He made us all giggle by diving into the cake mouth first! He simply couldn't get enough and I think he would have eaten the entire cake if mummy and daddy had let him!
Part 3 - Splish, Splash, Splosh Cake smash sessions can get very messy so bath time is the perfect way to clean up whilst having fun! Little M had the best time in the bath, he loved splashing around in the tub and he was positively mesmerised by all of the bubbles.
This was such a fun session, from start to finish! I enjoyed every single minute of it ♡
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!
