First birthday cake smash

As you may know Sophia celebrated her very first birthday recently and we booked her a cake smash photo shoot as we thought it was a lovely way to capture and remember her first birthday. I had not heard of cake smash's until a year or two ago when a few friends posted photograph's of there children getting them done for there first birthday's and i thought they looked brilliant so a few month's ago i booked a one for a few day's after Sophia's birthday as she had a party on her actual birthday.

 A lot of people actually do the shoots at home and take the pictures themselves but i am a useless photographer and i wanted the photo's to look nice and professional looking so that i can get a photo made into a canvas to hang in are living room . We got 70 images in both colour and black and white and i absolutely love them all.

Sophia has a real sweet tooth and loves to make a mess so when we arrived at the shoot and put her in front of the cake she got stuck straight in and grabbed some cake with her hand and ate it and said "mm nice" she then went on to hit the cake with her spoons and stick her hands , feet and even her bum in the cake she was absolutely covered in icing and cake but she looked like she was having a great time as she was laughing and smiling throughout.

Although she made a bit a lot of a mess with little icing footprints and hand prints all over as she kept wondering off trying to grab the wires and lights set up by the photographer and she also got me and her daddy covered in cake too. So we were glad we had put her in a pair of frillys for the shoot and not in a outfit as she was covered in cake by the time she had finished. Here are a few of the photograph's from Sophia's first birthday cake smash.

I got these photograph's taken by a local photographer called Inspired By Abbey. Sophia's gorgeous frillys are from itsy-bits and they cost £6.50  and her cake is from Gregg's the bakers ( Sophia's daddy work's for them so we got it cheaper but i think there about £12 to buy in the shop's)
