Romeo’s mum contacted me asking if I offered only the standard cake smash surrey with balloons, or something different. Of course I let her know that all my sessions are bespoke: I tailor them to all my clients’ requirements. It seems like she had been struggling to find a photographer who would provide her with the set up that she wanted. I am so glad that she contacted me as I was able to work with her ideas to produce the exact session she wanted for her special little boy. She wanted blues and greys with a touch of floral, and even a little crown for his cake. Cute! And it must be said this colour scheme really suited Romeo’s complexion and his gorgeous big blue eyes.
Mum brought a lovely outfit for his pre-smash session, in which he got to play with all my special wooden toys. He was especially fond of my handmade wooden car!
For the smash itself Mum had also brought along a cute pair of dungarees, teamed up with a nappy cover and hat. Romeo was super happy to keep this on for most of the session. Go Romeo! He got stuck right into his yummy cake, made by local cake-maker Mrs B Bakes, and had a great time in the clean up tin bath afterwards. So many great images for Mum, it was hard to select just a few for my favourites montage below! xx
I couldn’t finish this blog without including one more image. This one had to feature on its own because I love it so much.
I always use a bubble machine during the splash part of my cake smashes. The flash I use captures them amazingly well. Romeo just loved the bubbles and I think he thought he was still on the smash part as this capture shows below. Brilliant! xx

After the Session
I always guarantee 20 images for all my clients. These get edited and put into an online viewing gallery. However, there are always soooo many more great images from a cake smash session. Most parents end up viewing 40-50 images! The best thing about this is that if you purchase the whole gallery you get all the images, whether there are 20 or 60, at the same cost!
