We held Amariah’s Outdoor Cake Smash At Wat Tyler Country Park in Basildon, Essex. I particularly enjoyed this session the most as It was the first time I’d shoot a cake smash outdoors. The weather was perfect that day and the family looked stunning even though baby Amariah was not “feelin” this shoot she still rocked it!
As it was summertime going outdoors for this session was particularly safe due to the current pandemic, as social distancing can then be easily maintained. Not too long ago from this day, we had to stay at home for 3 months. With bare minimum social interaction here and there. It was really refreshing to be able to pick up my camera again and provide this family with memories of their gorgouse little one’s first birthday cake smash! Even the passing public in the park had to stop and comment on how beautiful Amariah looked in her little cake smash setup. Her gallery as you can see was full of colour and inspiration, I thoroughly enjoyed taking these images and editing them. I hope you find some inspiration from viewing them too. And if you would like to enquire for your outdoor cake smash I’ll be more than happy to help.

Kids are the best. They’re adorable, of course can be very funny at times and you never know what you’re going see from them. Kids are full of life and inquisitiveness about almost everything. Truly, they’re a dream to behold.
It can capture beautiful moments that would otherwise eventually be blurry memories. While everyday moments have their appeal, the best photographs usually come from special planned settings, preferable in professional baby studio, such as a newborn photoshoot, and mother and baby photo sessions. However, here are tips so that you get the perfect shot for your cake smash session.
No cake smash photography would be complete without an ideal cake. By ideal, we mean a cake that pops in the photographs and is easy for your baby to dig into. Choose a simple sponge cake with buttercream icing in bright and cheerful colours, such as pink, purple, baby blue, light green or yellow. If you have the budget for it, professional made-to-order cakes look gorgeous in cake smash photos.
Choose a theme that your baby will recognize and love. You could use a favourite book, toy or character for inspiration. You don’t want a grumpy or scared baby when it is time to take the photos. If you don’t want to have a specific theme, remember to colour coordinate everything, especially the baby’s outfit with the cake.
Natural light is ideal for a cake smash photo session in Essex. If possible, hold the session outdoors in a park or on the beach. If you can’t take everything outside, choose to set everything up in a room with big windows that get indirect sunlight. Or book a professional baby studio so that the photos turn out perfect regardless of the location.
While you could seat your baby in a high chair and place the cake on the dining table, you shouldn’t. The best cake smash photos have been taken in the simplest of settings a baby on the floor with the cake. If you are worried about the mess, buy a vinyl cloth to place on the floor.
Plan the session with your baby’s personality and schedule in mind. If he/she doesn’t like crowds, it is best to do an intimate session with just the immediate family present. This way you also won’t find yourself distracted by the urge to be the host. Remember to pick a time when the baby is usually awake and active to prevent a disaster.
