I was approached by Michele Donnison a very talented Graphic Designer, who designed my logo and website (http://www.secphotography.co.uk/home), to photograph her baby daughter Bea for her 1st Birthday. Michele was keen to do a Cake smash photo shoot, she had very clear ideas on how to style the shoot, sourced her own props and even had her own background printed!
So the day arrived for the Cake Smash we were all very excited and ready to go, Bea had a cute bee outfit, Michele had made a bee hive cake, the stage was set and looked brilliant! Despite all of this meticulous planning, neither Michele or I had planned for the fact that Bea wouldn’t like getting the icing from the cake on her nor even want to “cake smash”! We have seen so many cake smash images before, photographers making it look so much fun, the reality for Baby Bea (and Mum Michele) was very different! We captured what we could and arranged for Bea to come back the following week for her 1st Birthday photo shoot part 2.
We hoped when Bea arrived for her 2nd shoot that she wouldn’t remember the trauma of her first! We didn’t need to worry, why hadn’t we just done this, Bea loved her Bubble Bath! lots of splashing, giggles, bubbles and a very wet floor later, we had managed to capture some amazing pictures of baby Bea.
Michele “Thank you so much for Bea’s first birthday photo shoot, and for rescheduling an extra session because she was a grump on the first one. We got some great photos and had lots of fun! X”
