This has to be one of my favourite things to shoot! Nothing is more simple than a 1 year old sitting in front of a cake and destroying it, but it really does make for the funniest pictures and a really fun afternoon!
Not only do we smash the cake, we also have some fun with a warm bath afterwards and a bubble shoot to go along with the gorgeous cake photos (plus mum doesn't have to lift a finger with the cleaning!).
The little birthday boy/girl also gets a small present from the day - well it wouldn't be your birthday without a present now would it?!
Every parent I shoot cake smashing for doesnt regret it - it really does make for some great memories and the photos are so great for gifts to grandparents and the rest of the family!
