Cake Smash Photography for Everyone!
Who says cake smash photography is only for one year olds???
So I know I’m a little bit late sharing these photos from Jack’s cake smash session, which I photographed at the end of November to celebrate his 4th birthday.
I had such good intentions; even sharing a behind-the-scenes video from the photo shoot on my Facebook page, but then work, Christmas, family visits and summer holidays got in the way, and I only just got around to finishing the edits! But I am so glad I did, because I ADORE these photos of my littlest boy!
I ended up with way too may photos in our final gallery, but that is down to the sheer hilarity of the shoot; I managed to photograph so much of Jack’s personality; the belly laughs, the toothy grin, the quizzical expression that says ‘I just can’t believe she’s letting me eat a whole cake to myself!’…
What has changed between Jack’s first birthday cake smash and now? Well… first and foremost, the fact that he insisted on using a spoon to demolish his cake! It turns out my 4 year old is a little bit ‘OCD’ when it comes to cleanliness! In the end, he had a tiny bit of frosting stuck to his top lip, which could only be cured with a hot, relaxing shower afterwards! (He’s definitely mine!)
To represent Jack’s newest obsession, we incorporated his beloved train tracks and Thomas and Friends characters in the session. I love the way our photos turned out. They represent all of the fun, energy and beauty of our life with Jack right now; as we begin to leave young childhood behind, and face the reality of pre-school and kindergarten on the horizon.
If you have another birthday coming up for your little one, and are thinking about special ways to mark the occasion, maybe consider jumping on my VIP list, to keep up to date with special offers, custom themes and studio news. Hint: I have something very special coming up VERY SOON!
