Twinkle Twinkle Little Star | Brisbane Chilrden’s Photographer

Well what a little cutie patootie Yenaya is, just look at that smile! Celebrating her 1st Birthday in cake smash style! I was lucky enough to photograph her sister Yenoli 2 years ago for her cake smash and the time she was my best smasher to date. Yenaya was more than ready to knock off that title, can I just say. Right from the moment the cake was placed on the floor, there was no holding her back! Thee was cake from end of the backdrop to the other. She was a star smasher and also really enjoyed splashing around to clean up 🙂

Theo’s Cake Smash | Brisbane Children’s Photography | Heritage Park

Here’s a handsome little man who has just celebrated his first birthday. To mark the occasion Theo’s Mum organised a cake smash session with me in my home studio. The balloons seemed much more interesting to Theo but he managed to enjoy and smash his cake quite well 🙂

Hot Air Balloon Cake Smash| Brisbane Children Photographer

How cute is this little guy?

Jamie turned one on the 4th January and his Mum, Christine contacted me to photograph a cake smash session to display at his birthday party. Christine had decided on a hot air balloon theme and together we planned his shoot. Jamie took a little while to warm up to his set but we got a few smiles out of him once he got into it.

Christine also asked me to take a few photos of the family on the day of Jamie’s party & a bit of the set up. Jamie was to have a high tea for his party and Christine put in an enormous effort to make his first birthday special. The only thing she couldn’t control was the weather (It was the day of that lovely 43.5 degrees we recently had in Brisbane.) PHEW!, it was a scorcher!

The decorations looked great and the cake was amazing complete with a small fondant Jamie on top!

Emily’s Cake Smash | Brisbane Children Photography

Gorgeous little Emily came to see me with her Mum Sarah-Rose in early December to organize her cake smash for her 1st Birthday on 23 December. I haven’t been able to share until now as it was a surprise for the party guests to see her collage on the day of her party.

Little Emily didn’t have the best start to the day as she was hospitalized with high temps in the early hours of the morning she was due to see me. However as most children do she recovered like a trooper and loved smashing her cake. She only needed a small kip in the middle of it all and was ready to go again. I think her Mum had slightly more cake in her than Emily, but hey that’s what we Mum’s do for our kids 🙂

Cake Smash Session | Purple Fun| Brisbane Childrens Photography

Ah, purple, my favourite colour. Another fun Cake Smash was had last week when Isabelle and her parents came to visit me. Isabelle loved her purple owl cake and couldn’t wait to get her hands on it!

During the session my 17yo cat, Skye, wandered out to see what was going and that was enough for Isabelle to take off after her, not once but pretty much every time we put her back next to the cake. We had purple icing from one end of the house to the other, lol. But this is why I hold them in my home studio so you don’t have to worry about all that cleaning up 🙂
