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

Christmas Cake Smash 2014

by

Christmas cake smash, oh yes I went ahead with it and so far so good. I am absolutely in love with the work and everyone who has been to the studio has said how much fun they have had. All of this make me one happy Katie and obviously some VERY happy children. Seeing their faces when they walk in the room to find a whole cake just for them, it amazes me every time. The instant mischievous look in their eyes as they look around to see if this is really happening. This is something you just don’t really get with 1st birthday cake smash. One year old babies just want to play with this cool thing in front of them. Older children know it’s bad to play with their food so just want to get right in their and make some crazy mess.
Although one thing that definitely surprised me was the lack of eating that was going on. One year old babies actually eat more of the cake that 5 year olds!!! That shocked me a little but hey they were perfectly happy using the cake as a weapon! I love the joy you see in their angelic little faces when they get mum or dad messy with cake knowing they can’t tell them off! Oops. Let’s call that one my bad.
I have been so, so busy lately and I really wanted to do individual blog posts but I would have at least a week between posts, so I decided to find my favourite from the first three shoots and put them together in one blog post for you all to see.

I hope you like them, Enjoy x

Hollie’s Cake smash

by

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 (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…)
