I expected him to get stuck into demolishing the cake very quickly, but he was a little unsure at first and really took his time. I don't think he could quite believe we were really going to let him go crazy with it! Once he got started we had lots of big smiles and laughs from him, as well as some dancing. He is such a gorgeous, happy boy. An absolute pleasure to photograph. Thanks Callum for being such a wonderful model.
I will be working on some various Cake Smash session packages to offer over the coming weeks. I think these are such a fun way to mark a first birthday. If you are organised and plan a session before a birthday, the images would look fantastic to include on birthday party invitations. I will be including a few invitation designs in some of the packages I offer for a Cake Smash session, for this very reason.
I just wish I had seen this session idea while my own kids were still young enough to do it!
Here is a collection of my favourite images from the session, beginning with a Storyboard of images.
