Layla

The adorable Layla popped into my Cheltenham photography studio earlier this month for one of my fun filled cake smashes! 

As with many of my cake smashes, we began with a few clean shots before moving onto the messy part! Layla wolfed down the cake as if her life depended on it and within about twenty minutes she was looking for something else to do! After a quick clean up we got out a few toys for her to play with and this seemed to settle her back down. 

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

Amara's Cake Smash

Little Amara is a girl after my own heart when it comes to cake! Fair to say she loved the colourful icing and made light work of the delicious looking sponge! It was giggles and laughs all the way as she gobbled down the cake!

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!!

Emmy's Cake Smash

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing little Emmy for her very first cake smash to celebrate her birthday! She loved the cake and made a super mess - something I always love to see!

Amelia's Cake Smash

It was great to meet Amelia the other week. I photographed her Mum and Dad's wedding back in 2011 and they had been so pleased with the photographs that I was their first choice for their little girls' cake smash!

It would be fair to say that Amelia wasn't having the best day! She was teething and hadn't slept well and yet despite that we still managed to get some lovely happy shots of her, in between the tears! Her poor Mum's cake didn't go down well. The icing clearly aggravated her gums. Luckily she loved the balloon that I supply as part of my cake smash packages and had great fun playing with it! Little ones are very welcome to take the balloon home with them at the end of the shoot.

Holly's Cake Smash

I welcomed Holly into my Cheltenham photography studio recently for her first ever cake smash! She had lots of fun and although was a bit nervous to begin with and unsure what to make of the cake, she eventually worked up the courage to poke a finger into the wonderful deep pink icing! 

She also loved the balloon that I supply as part of the package. It's always big, bright and colourful and little ones absolutely adore tugging on the string and seeing it bounce up and down!

If you have a little one who is about to turn one or has just turned one and would like to book in a cake smash with me then please get in touch using my contact page or give me a call on 07983 465414. I'd love to hear from you! 

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!

“Hi Gill. Thanks for these we love them! A great way to end my maternity leave - back to work Monday! Have a great weekend when we get there!”

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.

Oliver's Cake Smash

Little Oliver was brilliant fun and like most of the gorgeous children that I photograph, he was far more interested in the balloons than the cake! The highlight was when his Mummy pulled out a rather large and oversized dino outfit, which he looked fab in and like many of the cake smash shoots I do, there was even time at the end for a bit of a play with some of The Mousehole's cool, vintage props!
