A 1st Birthday Cake Smash

Posted on 11 May, 2017 by Sarah Hart

Meet Jazz Hands Teddy

Teddy’s 1st birthday cake smash was a delight from beginning to end, not least because this little chap had bags of character and lots of smiles. We started with some simple portrait images which he smiled and sat beautifully for. For these types of shots at the beginning of a cake smash, I recommend bringing along a smart little birthday outfit.  Teddy looked great in a pale blue stripped jumper. His mum and I had already discussed the colour scheme she wanted so the colours worked perfectly with the backdrop.

Then we brought out the cake (a very yummy giant cupcake by lovely local business Cakes Unlimited Uk). Let’s face it, the cake is probably the most important part of a 1st birthday cake smash! Teddy wasted no time in getting stuck in!

There were lots of cute facial expressions as he concentrated on bashing, squelching and munching the cake!

1st birthday cake smash sessions are very often a whole lot of fun. If you are thinking of booking one of these, get in touch with your little one’s birthday and we can discuss colours of ideas you would like. For more information on cake smash sessions head over to my Cake Smash Gallery.


UPDATE:  Teddy returned a year later for a 2nd birthday shoot – he earned himself a new nickname! Read all about him and see how much he has grown HERE
