Olivia’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash – Horsham, West Sussex

The American phenomenon of the 1st Birthday cake smash shoot is here to stay and over recent years has become a growing tradition on this side of the pond too. I for one, am delighted about that as there is something about the innocent nature of an inquisitive 1 year old as they delve into a huge cake, knowing that it’s a bit naughty but at the same time enjoying the encouragement from the silly grown ups around them!

Olivia was no exception and as you will see from the photos below, she needed a little coaxing into it, but once she got going, we captured some super shots of her all over the big sticky mess of cake that was there for her to do what she wished with!

Nick and I went to visit Olivia and her family in Horsham, West Sussex and after a little maneuvering of furniture, set up our backdrop and lights in their kitchen.

We had a couple of outfit changes and I just LOVED the vintage ruffle dress that Victoria had dressed her baby girl in for her cake smash. We always leave the choice to you, some people like a nice birthday outfit, others prefer the ‘birthday suit’ !

We always stay for as long as is needed and aren’t clock watchers so when we saw an opportunity to get the rest of the family involved for a few pictures too, we jumped straight on that. Mum, Dad, Nan and Olivia’s big sister were all a little camera shy but we managed to get them in for a few pictures and they came out well!

All in all it was a really fun session and the family purchased the digital package meaning they have access to all the images in a keepsake box, with the ability to print / how they wish.
