Khaleesi's Cake Smash

Last week I met Khaleesi for her 1st birthday cake smash! She had such a super fun time exploring all the props I had provided and the big colourful balloon too! Fair to say her favourite part of the shoot though was the cake, which got devoured rather quickly!!

Xavier's Cake Smash

It was lovely to meet Xavier and his Mum when they popped into my Cheltenham photography studio a few weeks ago for his first ever cake smash! 

He was dressed to impress in his polka dot outfit complete with matching hat, pants and braces! The cake that his Mum had made was pretty awesome too! He had a great time throughout the fun 40 minutes and enjoyed every bit of it!

I hope you like the pictures. If you would like to book something similar then I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to drop me a message via my contact page or give me a call on 07983 465414. Thanks!

Llewena's Cake Smash

A few weeks ago I welcome little Llewena and her big brother Albi into my Cheltenham photography studio for one of my fun filled, fantastic cake smashes! 

We started with a few shots of Llewena before inviting Albi to help her 'smash' the cake! They both had a lovely time feeding each other cake, licking it off their feet and playing with the giant balloon, which comes included in the price of the photo shoot, (you also get to take it home, so no tears when playtime is over!)

I hope you like the pictures. If you would like to book something similar then please get in touch using my contact page or give me a call on 07983 465414. I'd love to hear from you!

Nellie's Cake Smash

Last Saturday I welcomed gorgeous Nellie into my Cheltenham photography studio for her very first cake smash photo shoot! She was full of beans and loved every mouthful of her scrummy pink cake!

As with all of my cake smash photo shoots, included is a lovely big bubble balloon, which little ones can take home with them, (if it's still in tact!) colourful oversized bunting, lots of quirky props and of course all of the high resolution digital files, beautifully edited and professionally touched up.

Charlie's Cake Smash

On Saturday I welcomed Elodie and her baby sister Charlotte, affectionately called Charlie, into my Cheltenham studio along with Mum and Dad. I think this is about the fourth photo shoot I've done for Alex and Greg Parker. They're moving to France in September and the shoot coincided well with Charlie's 1st birthday, their wedding anniversary and a bit of a bon voyage!

We started the extended cake smash session off, (so an hour rather than 45 minutes) with some family portraits. The one we all love best is probably where Elodie has her back to the camera when she refused to turn around, one of those moments that you probably had to be there for! Alex and Greg wanted me to take the shot anyway and it highlights how a photo should capture the moment! We moved on to some candid shots of the girls before the cake smash commenced. It was lovely to see Charlie enjoy her cake so much! We did a quick tidy up with 15 minutes left and rounded things off with some more shots of the two girls.

 

Livy's Cake Smash

Gorgeous Livy came into The Mousehole, my Cheltenham photography studio, last weekend for one of my fun and fabulous cake smashes! 

We started off the session with some clean, simple shots of Livy with her cake before moving onto a few portraits of her with her balloon. Next came the cake smash itself, which she wasn't that keen on!! After 15 minutes of careful prodding and sampling the icing she decided she'd had enough of cake! So we did a quick clean up and let her loose on some toys, whilst still keeping in the theme of birthday celebrations by photographing her in front of the bunting. Safe to say my vintage teddies were a real hit!

I hope you like the photos. If you would like to book something similar, I'd love to hear from you! You can get in touch using the form on my contact page or give me a call on 07983 465414. Thanks!

Oona's Cake Smash

Oh Oona! What a sweetheart she was. Poor little love was going through some detachment issues and didn't much enjoy being separated from Mummy. There was a mix of tears and laughter. Her Mum was pleasantly surprised at the photos she received, it's all about timing and pressing the shutter button at the right moment! You only get one chance!

I’m impressed that you managed to get more than I had expected! The pictures are great, thank you.

Harley's Cake Smash

It was brilliant welcoming Harley and his Mum and Dad into The Mousehole this morning. I don't often get to do a cake smash actually on a little one's birthday, but Harvey turned 1 today and it was really special to be able to share a part of his 1st birthday with him.

He loved it too! We started things off quite slowly so as to help Harvey warm up and become familiar with the studio environment but very soon we were pulling out heaps of different studio props for him to play and interact with!



Jack's Cake Smash

Jack and his Mummy popped into The Mousehole last Thursday for a cake smash photo shoot. My cake smash sessions last for 60 minutes and include a wide range of retro props, as seen in these photos. I also provide all the balloons too! As normally happens in most of my cake smash sessions, there was time at the end for a 20 minute play with more of my vintage props, giving Jack's Mummy a great mix of shots.

If you would like to book something similar, a cake smash session costs £100 and includes all of the high resolution digital images. No copyright restrictions. Drop me a line using my contact page or call me on 07983 465414.

Thanks!

Lauren's Cake Smash

Lauren and her Mummy and Daddy came into The Mousehole, situated just off the Bath Road in Cheltenham, on Sunday for  a cake smash photography shoot, and boy did we have fun! 

The cake had been made by her Mummy and was a real beauty, but Lauren was far more interested in all the silly noises Mummy and Daddy were making; silly sneezing and bubbles would make her hysterical! 

A typical cake smash session lasts for one hour, but after half an hour or so Lauren was getting a little restless and so I suggested we clean up and encourage her to just play and have fun. She was soon having a great time, pulling out loads of different props, but her favourite was anything she could stack, so wooden blocks, a wooden stackable lorry etc.

I'm getting lots of enquiries through for cake smash photo sessions, not to mention of course my cake smash marathon that I'm holding on Sunday 22nd March as part of Mouse About Town's 1st birthday celebrations. Watch this space for heaps more pics!
