Cake Smash with Emily

At home family, Cake Smash, Children, Family


Well look what i have below, the most gorgeous little bean! I photographed this little human when she was just a few weeks old. Then I was asked to come back right bang in the middle, she had changed so much. When the Cake Smash call came, I jumped for joy!! This little family is the best, a home filled with love and joy.

Its amazing how quickly the year fly’s by but those nights when you are longing for them to sleep seem to last a lifetime…. we all remember those right?! This little darling was up and walking like a pro, she’s so delicate and cute. I have been so lucky to have done a few Cake Smashes now and each one is completely different. But they all have one thing in common. When bubba realises its okay to get stuck in, their eyes and soul shine with realisation. Its the best moment, i wait for it and each and every time BOOM. When it arrives im grinning from ear to ear.

The first year is jam packed with wonderful memories, little humans achieve so much in those 12 months. The squishy.ness is delicious, watching them grow and learn is a fascinating experience. However i have discovered something even more special. Getting to visit squishy gorgeous little humans and taking their picture is the best job !! Have a look at a few of our images from the day.


Emily’s Cake Smash

Mel Hudson Photography Family Cake Smash for a little girl


If you are thinking of having a Cake Smash for your little human, take a number of things into account.
  • They are going to get messy, you can’t get upset with sticky hands and faces.
  • Pick a nice environment for it to happen, too often baby is plonked in a strange room, given a cake and expected to perform. This never goes down well.
  • Expect to be offered a sticky piece of cake, remember to say thank you as you munch!
  • Dont go full out and buy expensive cakes, they end up in the bin. Buy something pretty from Marks or Sainsbury’s and keep the special cake for the family party.
  • Dont fancy a cake, cupcakes are great, small easy to handle and just as effective.
