So, after never having had a unicorn themed cake smash Sussex, I ended up being asked for two in a short space of time. No problem, however, as I try to make each one a little different.
Arabella’s Mummy requested, “soft pink and purples and just really girly, [with] flowers & unicorns, if possible?”
Possible? Absolutely! So I set to work planning the session. I knew Arabella’s Mum was bringing along a pink tutu, vest and headband – which Arabella was less keen on wearing! So I decided to keep my colours to the pinks and purples to bring the whole session together. I have a cutting machine which enabled me to cut out some additional pink unicorn shapes to go with my cuddly toy unicorn and also the unicorns Arabella brought along.
Always a delight to see returning clients, I had photographed Arabella for her newborn portraits the previous year. And now she was back in the Samphire studio to celebrate her first birthday.
She loved her unicorn Cake Smash, from the super pretty pink ruffle cake through to the splash session at the end. As you can clearly see from my selection of images below xx
Her brother Zak also got involved, not just in the pre-smash portraits but also at the tail end of the smash itself. I always encourage siblings to get involved as I don’t think it is fair to have to sit and watch. Younger siblings also love them joining in as these pictures show. Although big brothers and sisters do tend to get stuck into the cake a little quicker than their younger siblings!

After the session
I always guarantee 20 images for all my clients. These get edited and put into an online viewing gallery but 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!
