A first birthday cake smash session celebrates the transition from baby to toddler. I will capture your toddler’s individual spirit in a natural manner.

The concept is simple!

.

To begin with, a toddler is introduced to a cake and encouraged to demolish it. As a result, an intriguing story unfolds.

A cake smash is essentially a messy play session!

My approach is natural and organic.

.

Led by each unique personality. Although, every shoot is structured I am open minded. Encouraging unplanned natural movement and behaviour. Creating a bespoke experience customised to your toddler’s needs.

.

.

The styling of your toddler’s shoot is an important foundation. I favour a relatively neutral colour pallet. Limiting it to pure white and soft muted tones.

.

As a result, the images remain classic and timeless.

MINIMAL

I prefer a minimalistic approach to props. Chiefly, limiting them to a few neutral and charming pieces. That is, uncomplicated wooden toys made from natural sustainable materials @ Sarah & Bendrix. Furthermore, I like to opt for a unassuming rustic cake style. Modest in size, perfect for little hands. Therefore, your toddler’s candid expression will remain the focus.

The cake smash sessions are divided into three stages.

.

Firstly, timeless portraits. Secondly, the introduction of the cake. Finally, a splash in a mini roll top bath. Each stage will offer a variety of images. Contributing to a final cohesive collection. For further information check out my blog post; ‘Cake smash photo shoot checklist’.
