None of this get your kid to dive into a cake thing was around when I was shooting in a busy Melbourne studio 7 years ago. But if it was, boy would it have been a blast! And by a blast I mean a nightmare. Could you imagine how much icing and cake crumbs we would have had to clean up at the end of the day!
Cake smashes are so much fun. Not many babies have had a sugar hit like this in their lifetime so far. Sometimes they just poke a finger in the icing and that’s enough for them. You could patch it back up and take the cake for morning tea at Aunty Susan’s house this afternoon. Other times, they lick that finger, their little eyes light up and they want more. Mum is quickly pulling them away from the cake before it is to late. The afternoon sleepy time is just a distant dream.
This cake smash didn’t exactly go to plan. This poor little man wasn’t feeling the best, and all he wanted was mummy cuddles. He didn’t care about sugar, although he did sample some of the finery…or should I say refinery. But that’s ok. As you can see, I still managed to capture some beautiful shots which this family can look back on and see how much their little fella has grown, his hair has grown and his face has grown and matured in years to come. Happy 1st Birthday Corey!
