Reubens Cake smash!


A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of inviting Reuben, mum and big brother to one of my cake sessions. I was ridiculously excited for this one, just because of how basic it was going to be. All white, clean, unfussy, simplistic. The focus was completely on little Reuben and thats exactly how I had hoped it would be.

The session itself was just wonderful – though we had a slight challenge, turns out the birthday boy isn’t too keen on cake! He had a nibble, pulled a bit out, but really he was more excited about playing with the balloons!

Happy 1st Birthday Rueben, and thank you for letting me shoot such a special session!


Lola’s Cake smash!


A couple of months or so ago now, I was approached by one of my sisters friends about the possibility of doing her daughters first birthday cake smash. I’d been toying with the idea of just giving it a go – I turned down so many of these last year, which is just ridiculous! – Anyway, I ignored my dislike of studio photography and created a plan that would make studio stuff more enjoyable for me. Anyway the day came and after lots of back and forth messages between us, I was certain I’d got everything ready for little Lola’s first birthday celebrations.

The session itself couldn’t have gone any more perfect. It was Lola’s actual birthday on our smash date, which just made the whole experience even more special. She was an absolute joy to work with, and though she was a little wary of getting fully stuck in with her cake, she did eventually get comfortable enough to just enjoy her session.

Happy 1st Birthday Lola, thank you for letting me shoot your special day!
