Is there anything in this world nicer than cake? As a adult you might argue that there is...however as a little boy just about to turn one, cake is definitely a top priority!!! Add a whole collection of blue coloured balloons, bunting and a unbelievably cute blue gingham two piece, (with braces)...and we are cake smash ready!!
I met Arthur and his family for the first time during his cake smash and splash session, at my home studio based in Helmshore, Rossendale. It was my first time doing a cake smash shoot and I really didn't know how he would react with the cake. I shouldn't of worried though...as soon as mum had put the cake in front of him, he literally devoured every little bit! This boy definitely has a sweet tooth, he could not get enough of this cake!!! We had cakey fingers, toes, hair, and a butter-creamed face! It was a fantastically messy shoot and the best part was......Arthur loved every single moment, he only cried when we took the cake away!!
Following a smash is the splash! This involves washing all the cake away with some soapy suds in a small bath tub. Arthur also loved having a bath, he was a dream baby! We added some little rubber ducks as friends and I took lots of pictures whilst he enjoyed the warm water.
We finished the session with a few family snaps, I do love taking family pictures, its amazing how everyone changes as the years pass. Photography helps to keep these memories current and treasured forever.
I had a blast during this cake smash and splash session, Arthur was a joy to photograph and his family is truly lovely. Have a look at the images we captured together during the shoot.
