Sienna's 1st birthday cakesmash session! 

Little Sienna came to the studio to celebrate her 1st birthday and she very kindly left some cake over for her parents to take home! :) 

These are a little sneak from Sienna's final gallery before her parents get to take them home forever so I do hope you enjoy them! 

Cake Smash shoots have taken over by storm in the past two years they are getting more popular as more people are hearing about them. It's not for every child, or parent, but that's fine don't let the mess put you off as we can always do without the cake and still have this fun birthday set up for your little one to enjoy. 

My style for Cake Smash sessions has changed and developed over the years, with the props becoming less and less - it keeps it simple and classy for me! The focus is on baby and the cake, so I tend to not overcrowd with too much going on around and behind baby. I've found this can also be a little overwhelming for baby, there's enough going on as it is with a brand new environment for your little one, so I want them to feel as comfortable as they possibly can in my home studio. 

If you have any questions about how a Cake Smash works I send lots of lovely little pointers to all my enquiries, so you can have a think if it's going to work best for your little one. If you want to ditch the cake and do a portrait session following with some splash images - pictured of baby in a old fashioned bath tub - these are also always fun!
