Cake Smash Portrait Photography // Harper-Lily
Before I start, I must warn you Harper-Lily is super adorable so just keep that in mind when you see the beautiful images. It has been a little while since I had done a cake smash portrait session, so really wanted to make the set up for Haper-Lily’s portraits just something more beautiful than I’ve done before. I asked Harper-Lily’s mum what kind of theme she wanted to go for, in which she replied with pinks, whites and golds, I thought perfect! I had tassels, the pompoms and a white wood backdrop and I knew this would look great for them.
Mummy and daddy brought Harper-Lily too the studio for her first birthday portraits, as soon as they walked through the door and she got changed into her dress I knew there would be a lot of stunning images. The dress Harper-Lily wore for her normal portraits before the smash was the dress she actually wore for her first birthday party and as you can see it’s beautiful. For all my cake smash portrait photography sessions that I do, I always start off with some normal portraits, what I mean by normal is portraits of the little one in nice clothes before we change and get messy. I love for my clients to have normal portraits as well as the messy smash ones so they can show them all off, it’s nice to see the difference between clean and messy.
After some gorgeous clean portraits, Harper-Lily then changed into her ”one” vest and a tutu, we did unicorn theme so we had a stunning unicorn cake made at Cakes By Emma. Mum wasn’t looking forward to the cake being smashed because it looked so good! Nevertheless, Harper-Lily had fun smashing the cake, tiny steps first though, tiny taster before really digging in and of course those smiles say it all. One happy little girl.
Mummy and daddy sure did get some beautiful portraits of their little girl both before and after the smash so they can hang them in their beautiful home to show off to all that comes in. Not only can they hang the images to show them off but the images are memories, memories that will be passed down. The prints will last years and years, so when Harper-Lily is old enough she will have photos to look back on of herself and show to her children when the time comes.
