Cake Smash Photography {Surrey} ~ Maggie

Happy 1st Birthday Maggie! This cake smash session was held on Maggie’s actual birthday – such a pleasure to be able to share her special day.

These sessions are especially fun when it is a baby I photographed at newborn and/or sitting up stage. It is lovely to see them grow and get to know their developing personalities. I met Maggie when she was only 11 days old for her newborn shoot, so it was lovely to see her again.

Cake Smash shoots have been around for a while in the UK but like most things they originated in the US. Initially the shoot was to take some images for party invites, however I’m finding that most parents like to have the shoot on or around their child’s birthday and often order Thank You cards as part of their package.

My Cake Smash Shoots have three stages, pre-smash images with your child in a favourite outfit before they get all covered in cake, then once they’re getting a little bored the cake is introduced and it’s a great distraction. Once they’ve finished playing with the cake then it’s bath time and they get to have a splash in the bath. All shoots are baby led and how long each stage lasts is totally dictated by your child and how happy they are. No child is ever forced to do anything they don’t want to do. I would also just like to add that most children eat very little cake, to them it’s just messy play and they are exploring the different textures and feel of the cake.
