When Leanne contacted me about a Cake Smash and Splash session to celebrate her daughter's first birthday...little did I know what fun was about to happen! I absolutely love cake smashes anyway but let's just say that Minnie may be called Minnie but my oh my she has the biggest personality! The best thing about Minnie's Cake Smash was that mum wanted it on her actual birthday so it was such an honour getting to share this special day with them and I couldn't wait!
Leanne had requested a pink and grey colour scheme with a fairy guest and bunting! So I spoke with my cake maker Katie and we discussed making a fairy house cake complete with fairy! I was so excited to see it....for those of you who know my work, you'll know I am one of the country's leading fine art fairy photographers so I'm fairy obsessed! I then set about designing a set and selecting outfits and hats that would fit with Leanne's colour scheme and make it perfect for Minnie's very special day!
Before your could blink, the big day arrived! I collected the cake (which was so gorgeous) and got everything ready. Minnie, her mum and dad and her nan arrived and the celebrations began, aided by Minnie's nan who was an absolute star at helping to catch Minnie and put her back on the set as Minnie has just started to crawl a week earlier and was like a rocket! A big shout out has to go to dad too as between him and nan they quickly mastered the art of sitting teddy bears up ready for the next shot as Minnie was just obsessed with teddy cuddles (she really was completely adorable)!
Little Minnie loved her cake! She was absolutely mesmerised when we put it in front of her and quickly dug in tasting the sweet icing and then grabbing huge handfuls of cake and stuffing them in her mouth...it was so funny! Just look at all these wonderful expressions she pulls! How fantastic is she!!!
Next we got the vintage bath tub out and Minnie's mum and I made lots and lots of bubbles in the water ready for Mini to play with. Minnie absolutely loves baths and she was so cute, lifting her feet up to sow us her bubbly toes... we also got daddy busy with the bubble machine and Minnie loved pointing at all the bubbles and trying to catch them...it was just heart melting! She had so much fun and it was impossible to choose from any of the pictures I took of her as she just smiled and giggled her way through them all!
After her bath, mum and nan dried her off whilst i changed the set and we got some gorgeous pictures of her covered with her fluffy towel too! She reminds me of a baby off a tv advert in these images...she's just so sweet!
Mum, Leanne and dad, Sam got in on the action too in some extra gorgeous family pictures! I even got mum dressed up in one of my beautiful tutu's for some fine art portraiture! It was the most wonderful session with the most wonderful company!
