Hollie’s Cake smash


Well I went ahead and bought a whole load of new props….I’m a sucker for anything extra girly and these props really stood out to me. As for this cake smash, little Hollie wasn’t feeling to good about the whole thing. As I have said in previous posts, not all children love the attention and the lights being on them. It can be quite daunting to a little 1 year old, but as I always do, I try my absolute best to get a smile and to make the child relaxed so they can enjoy themselves. It is really all about them and their first birthday after all. I would much rather the child enjoyed themselves than being unhappy and scared, so sometimes the bath tub has to come out. The vintage bathtub that I use is an additional extra that can be added on to either of my cake smash packages. I love it, most babies love it too. If baby isn’t enjoying the cake smash and we know they love water, we swap. This was the case for the lovely Hollie, she wasn’t overly fond of the cake smash and much preferred the bath tub experience.  We soon got some laughs and cheeky smiles and she certainly enjoyed herself, which to me, is the most important part. Here are may favourites from Hollie’s session   Enjoy x Katie Garcha Photography | Oxfordshire | Carterton Cake Smash | Katie Garcha Photography | Oxfordshire | Carterton Couldn’t recommend Katie enough. Went to her for a cake smash for my daughter (Hollie) first birthday, and my daughter wasn’t in the mood at all, she was very tired and just wanted cuddles. Katie was very patient and professional, even her husband came in and helped cheer Hollie up. We’ve just received our photographs and me and my husband are so happy with them. Katie done so well to get so many lovely photos from a very upset baby throughout her photoshoot. I would definitely go back in the future for more.”  – Michelle Bird
