Hugo’s family was looking out for some ideas how to celebrate first birthday. They haven’t got any professionally done photos of Hugo. So they came across one of my cake smash stories and it was perfect opportunity to get portraits done and have something fun for Hugo as well.
I have photographed babies for many years now and cake smash sessions have been part of my business for 3 years. I have developed great relationship with local baker and babies definitely love her cakes 🙂 Yes there is aspect of major studio clean after each session, but I take that as good opportunity to organise studio and keep it tidy.
Hugo was not particularly shy boy 🙂 We started session with nice headshot portraits. Managed to get some pretty smiles. Normally it takes them around 15 minutes into the photo session to realise that now they can run away from background and do whatever they want. More confident they are less time I get to photograph them still.
Loved his little outfit. Look at those beautiful curly hair. Far too cute.
Showing off his standing skills 🙂
Wanted to create one more vintage look photo. I love my cart prop and i think it was perfect for this set.

Cake smash photos were crackers. Lots of eating and trashing around 🙂 Cake smash part tends to go more slowly. At the beginning most of babies would think about cake and only then approach it. Takes slowly bit by bit to get them fully involved. Hugo didn’t need much time for introduction and jumped on cake pretty much straight away 🙂
I tend to keep my cake smash sessions pretty plain. I know many baby photographers like to have loads fun background decorations like dots, flowers etc, but I think it actually takes away attention from the baby. You start look on the background more than baby.
Job done and cake was finished. There was not much to take home 🙂
Not many photo studios offer bath sessions, but I find this part to be awesome. Loads of splashes and water everywhere. We bring bubble machine and fun can begin.
As you can see we had loads of great fun. Little ones love it and I love to see them like that. If you are thinking to book a cake smash session you can either press any of buttons below or just visit my website a-fotografy.co.uk.
