When a family I’ve photographed several times asks me to do a 1st birthday cake smash in their home in Hampton Village, my answer is YES! YES! YES!
I was privileged to have photographed this Hampton family several times before – a pregnancy photo shoot in Bushy Park and also a newborn session in their home in Hampton Village. Now, a year later it was time for the 1st birthday cake smash – and the garden was the perfect place for it.
One thing I really liked about this session was the importance of getting the apple tree in the background in the picture. That’s why we left the fallen apples on the ground and made sure we could delicately attach bunting to one of the apple trees. The family had the most gorgeous fruit trees in their garden and it was fantastic including these beautiful trees in the photos. You may notice from the video that the cake didn’t make it’s appearance until more than half way through the photo shoot!
Thinking of a cake smash session?
If you’re thinking of a cake smash session, either at home, or in my Twickenham Green studio, I’d love to hear your ideas. Together we can plan something really cute! Don’t forget to bring the family too as there’s more than enough time to do some lovely portraits with the birthday girl or boy.
