First Birthday Cake Smash Shoot

cake smash photo shoot

This first birthday cake smash shoot was such fun. Arwen’s parents scheduled this shoot at our studio prior to their daughters first birthday.  They brought with them a couple of outfits, the cake and balloon.  However we can arrange the cake and balloon should you wish, just let us know.   We started the shoot with some portraits before introducing the cake and things got messy!     A change of backdrop and outfit and we unboxed the cake. It’s interesting to see how toddlers react to the cake, some dive in and others are not quite sure what to do.  Love this adorable shot…     If you would like to chat about a first birthday cake smash shoot for your son or daughter,

Families tend to be dotted all over the country which makes getting together for a photo shoot pretty tricky.  This family managed to co-ordinate a weekend to have their photo shoot which was purchased as a gift for their fathers birthday.  Luckily we had a sunny day and headed to nomansland close to Harpenden which is a great outdoor setting for some relaxed family shots. Here are a selection from the shoot…

Lindsey & Andrew’s bump and baby shoot

We love seeing our wedding couples on the next chapter of their lives and recently we had the pleasure in photographing Lindsey and Andrew and their beautiful bump. Lindsey was 37 weeks pregnant and blooming!  It always fascinates and amazes me how our bodies change to accommodate new life and what a wonderful example below. It’s almost surreal when couples come back with their newborns so soon after seeing them with huge bumps, such a life change a day can make 🙂 Baby Harrison was gorgeous and happily slept through the majority of the photo session. Here is a selection from the two photo shoots.

Charlotte and Paul’s bump and baby shoot

Due a few weeks after our second daughter was born, I was heavily pregnant myself when we photographed their bump photos and Evie watched as we photographed baby Charlie! It’s lovely for us to be able to capture the next step in a wedding couples journey and meet their wonderful creation. Here’s a selection from the shoot…

Here are a selection from the shoot.  If you are interested in finding out more about our pregnancy, newborn and family photography sessions please call me for a chat, Emma on 01582 469003.
