I've known Sofia's mummy and daddy for years now, Sofia is my god daughter, Nicola (her mummy) is one of my best friends, so when it came to her first birthday I was always going to do her cake smash photography session!! I think there is nothing nicer than marking your babies first birthday with a cake smash and splash session, and for me this session was very special as it was for Sofia. x
Vintage style Cath Kitson bunting, mint greens and white balloons were the perfect backdrop for Sofia's cake smash session!! I always do cake smashes and splashes at my home studio in Helmshore, Rossendale.
I just love the expressions all little ones show when they have their sessions, generally they dig in, on the day Sofia wasn't as keen as some children, this sometimes happens and is nothing to worry about! With a little encouragement from me and her mum, Nicola she soon started to eat the cake and play with the balloons!!
Sofia's cake was a beautiful large cupcake style cake made up of delicious vanilla sponge and dressed with mint green rosette buttercream. It was lovingly made by Joan from Jaybee Cakes. Joan is a local cake maker and I always try and get her to make all my cake smash cakes. The cakes always look to good to eat, for Sofia's cake smash I was actually able to try the cake and it really was delicious!!
Normally after a cake smash, comes the 'splash', however Sofia really isn't keen on water so for this cake smash session, the 'splash' part was skipped.
I really enjoyed this session, below are some of my favourite images.
Enjoy, love Laura xx
