Cake smash and splash sessions are so much fun! I love these sessions and being a Lancashire family and cake smash photographer. I've known Sophie's mummy and daddy for a few years now and when Sam contacted me to book in for a cake smash photography session I was thrilled!! I think there is nothing nicer than marking your babies first birthday with a cake smash and splash session!
Vintage style bunting, pink, mint greens and white balloons were the perfect backdrop for Sophie'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 Sophie wasn't as keen as some children, this sometimes happens and is nothing to worry about! With a little encouragement from me and mum she soon started to eat the cake!!
Sophie's cake was a beautiful large cupcake style cake made up of delicious vanilla sponge and dressed with pink 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, just check out the picture below!!
Once the cake smash is finished, I always follow my smash sessions with a 'splash'!! Sophie loved the tub part and I captured some beautiful portraits for mummy and daddy.
I've added some of my favourite images below, check them out!!
Lots of love, Laura xx
