Cake Smash Photographer in East Yorkshir

So your baby is almost one!!! How did that happen? The time has disappeared in a blink of an eye and your precious little bundle is quickly growing and changing and looking forward to their 1st birthday! 

As a cake smash photographer in East Yorkshire near Hull at Bluebell and Lace Photography in North Ferriby I love planning and photographing 1st birthday shoots.

They are the perfect way to celebrate this milestone and the memories we capture are treasured forever.

Here at Bluebell and Lace Photography studio in East Yorkshire near Hull, our cake smashes have become a really popular way to celebrate a baby's first birthday and record those first tastes and giggles. These sessions are really popular and incorporate three different parts to tell the story of your little ones first birthday.

I was told there'd be cake!?

We chose Bluebell and Lace Photography for our little girl's 1st birthday shoot and were not disappointed! Leonie had lots of patience and put us at ease. We are over the moon with our beautiful images. Thank you so much!

Our sessions start with a 1st Birthday portrait session where we capture "clean" shots of your little one in their smart birthday party clothes before changing them into our cakes mash outfits and bringing the cake in.  We have many backdrop choices to suit different your colour choices and baby's interests making your gallery a true reflection of your family. 

Next comes the smashing of the cake! We source our cakes from a fabulous local cake maker who makes the most beautifully, delicious, cakes with soft butter icing which are perfect for little fingers to get stuck into. Whilst I always encourage few first tastes, it isn't a great idea for little people to eat too much cake, so there is usually enough cake left intact for you to take home to enjoy with a cup of tea!

Once the cake has been smashed it's time for a bath and a splash in the bubbly water!

This is a great way for me to catch those giggle and laughs as they splash and play.
