1st birthday cake smash in blue white and grey for a birthday session for adorable baby boy

Maxwell is turning one and is celebrating in style with a Cake Smash and Splash session ♡ His family recently came by to capture his 1st Birthday Cake Smash session in my photography studio in Aldershot, Hampshire. His parents had chosen a lovely classic setup incorporating gold, blue and white balloons. I love how it all came together! Scroll on to see more photos from Maxwell's Blue, Gold and White Themed Cake Smash session!




Part 1 - The Portrait Session I always start out the session by capturing a few shots of the birthday boy or girl in a lovely outfit, either chosen from the studio wardrobe or brought along from home. This is also a wonderful opportunity to capture some lovely family portraits - I absolutely love this one we captured of baby Maxwell and his parents.

The Portrait part of your Cake Smash session is all about capturing your little one in a simple, timeless way. The Cake Smash setups are usually colourful and messy, so having a very simple setup gives a nice contrast and also allows you to take home some beautiful, natural photos of your little one.

Part 2 - The Cake Smash!

Some little ones aren't as keen on smashing up their cake as their parents had anticipated! It can be a little overwhelming for a one year old to have a huge cake placed in front of them, to do with as they wish - but Maxwell loved his cake!

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 - Splish, Splash, Splosh Cake smash sessions can get very messy so bath time is the perfect way to clean up whilst having fun!

Look at those squishy cheeks! Such a gorgeous boy ♡

It was such a pleasure to meet Maxwell and his family, thank you so much for choosing me as your Cake Smash photographer!


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!
