Ariana’s Cake Smash and Splash

Ariana’s Cake Smash!

Good afternoon one and all, come on in and get comfy as it’s time to check out some pictures of yet another cake smash. We all love a good cake smash!
For todays blog, I have the beautiful Ariana who came in for her 2nd birthday cake smash. Her smile lit up the room and she can certainly pull some funny faces. She had such fun playing with the cake and twirling in her beautiful dress. I was really impressed when I noticed that her dress actually matched the cake! That never happens.

After Ariana was all caked out, we brought out the bath tub for some splashy fun, she loved it. I love watching children’s faces light up when they realise they can splash as much as they want and make loads of mess.

Anyway I’d like to say a huge thank you to Ariana for being my first cake smash since I landed in Cyprus. I was desperate to do one and I couldn’t have asked for a better session. I love my job and I love to make people happy by giving them such wonderful memories.

Right, i’m stopping myself before I bore you all with my sob story about not working for a few weeks…..

Here is Ariana enjoying her cake smash, I hope you all enjoy it too :)

Happy Birthday Pearl

Happy Birthday Pearl!

Well this gorgeous little girly turned the big ONE last week and we had a mini celebration in the studio. Pearl enjoyed her birthday cake smash so much that I’m pretty sure she would have stayed until closing.
The smiles on Pearls face were so natural and honest, I loved how much fun she was having with her cake and how much she enjoyed being messy. After Pearl had finished making a huge mess with her cake, we brought out the vintage bath tub. And yes, it is a new one! I found this lovely bit of history at The Old Pill Factory, Witney. You can find the website link at the bottom of the page.
I am usually very good at judging who will be a professional splasher and who will just enjoy the warmth of the lovely warm water in the bath tub, well this time I was so very, very wrong. Pearl was an epic splasher, I literally had to take a step back to ensure my camera didn’t get wet. She was amazing!!

All in all we had a wonderful hour in the studio and I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with little Pearl. So before I blather on about how much I love my job, here are my favourite images from the day.

Enjoy x

Ewan’s Birthday Cake Smash

by

Today I am talking about Ewan’s Birthday Cake Smash….

The gorgeous Ewan came in for his 1st birthday cake smash recently, after a little period of “why are you all staring at me” he settled into his cake smash and made a royal mess…which we love! He was fantastic, I thoroughly enjoyed watching his face light up when he tasted the cake and his expression as he enjoyed mushing and smashing the cake to oblivion.

His gorgeous smile was incredibly infectious and his gorgeously cheeky laugh really made my day, once he got in to it, his smashing skills really came out and we had loads of fun.

If you follow my blog you will know just how much I enjoy photographing cake smashes, every single one is so unique and no matter how the child reacts to the gigantic cake they are presented with it always turns out to be loads of fun.

Ewan was no exception, like most, he was a little cautious to start with. Not that I blame him… I mean…. I would be too,  if I was presented with a giant cupcake and told so smash it and make mess all whilst in someone else’s house! We spend so much time cleaning up our babies and making sure they are clear from bogies, and the remains of dinner that when we want them to get messy, they kinda look at us funny.

So….. here are my favourite shots from Ewan’s cake smash, Enjoy xEwan's Birthday Cake Smash (more…)

Elizabeth’s Cake Smash

by

Another gorgeous baby recently turned one and it was time for Elizabeth’s cake smash.  Some of you may remember Elizabeth as I photographed her last year and I won an award for one of her images.

As I keep saying to her parents, I cannot believe that she is one year old already, it really seems like just a few weeks ago she was a sleepy baby having some pictures done with her mummy and daddy.

As you are all aware, I absolutely love my cake smash sessions. I love the fact that a teeny little human is coming into my studio, being presented with a cake which is almost the same size as them and expected to just eat it and smash it to pieces.  I mean who wouldn’t want to do that, I know I would but then I am a 26 year old woman with 2 children and a big old love of cake!

Anyway, back to the gorgeous Elizabeth. Here are her images, enjoy! Cake Smash (more…)

Amaya’s Cake Smash

by

This gorgeous little girl was a little cautious to start off with but she soon got into it, the mess was impressive and I was so pleased with how the Cake Smash turned out. Not all children go straight in for the cake and it can take some children a good twenty minutes before they feel totally comfortable with the whole situation. Please remember that this is a brand new experience and the child is only 1 year old so don’t expect them to go straight for it. I recently added on the vintage bath tub experience to my packages, this is a good opportunity to get the child clean whilst they have a splash and you get some extra pictures of them having some water fun. Below, you will see some pictures of the bath tub in use by the beautiful Amaya. Amaya's Cake Smash | Katie Garcha Photography | Carterton (more…)
