1st Birthday Cake Smashing Photoshoot!

One of many ways to celebrate a birthday is to get a cake and …………………SMASH IT! Well make sure you eat it as you go. It is your birthday after all.

Little Stefan was so challenging but extremely fun to photograph. Here is the story…………….

When Stefans parents turned up with little Stefan sleeping, I thought great, lets do something different and create something unique.Its not very often you get a sleeping child at his age. They are all pretty active by then, but because he was sleepy I managed to capture that feeling we all miss as adults…..being able to sleep anywhere with no worries at all.

Then is when little Stefan woke up ,he was all happy and smiley. What a joy to work with!

This was the time to bring out ‘The Cake’.

This cake was specially designed for cake smashing. Really soft and colourful on the top and really yummy inside. But poor Stefan doesn’t like to get dirty. Apparently he is very tidy and clean child and never likes to get dirty! So i wouldn’t recommend this type of photoshoot if your child is similar to Stefan.

My cake smashing plan was so close to not being accomplished. But slowly we managed to persuade Stefan to try the cake and eventually he was interested in the taste rather than the excitement of smashing his cake. It was an amazing shoot, see below for the results.
