Joondalup Cake Smash Photos

Hipp Hipp Hurray, it is your birthday!! I have been so excited to take Joondalup cake smash photos for a boy. I do love all things girly but something more earthy has been calling to me recently.

Your Sister’s Sessions

Your sister Violet had a neutral set up with a cake that I painstakingly made. Only for her to cry so excessively that I had to reshoot and the cake was all mooted. She had been walking for a few months so staying put was not fun for her. But all those tears are part of my memory of her and I still love those images.

Two years later when Dahlia gad turned one I had been working as a photographer for a little while and had planned every detail of her cake smash. It was all about the bling. I do LOVE how it turned out but I do think my taste have changed and the more subtle back drops suit me now….. It was beautiful though.

Rosie did have a neutral drop with a lot of paper garlands to add a pop of colour. But then I was not interested in baking so I used a packet mix cake (that we actually made for daddy’s birthday) and covered it in whipped cream. Then I used the fake flowers in my collection to decorate it. I was going for the naked cake vibe. Parents get so focused on the cake being stunning. I definitely understand form my first child but the cake gets squished so quickly it is not worth all the pain. And dollars!

Your Joondalup Cake Smash Photos

And now it is your turn. My taste is now a classic white backdrop and floor, with just a minimum of accessories to make the set pop. I had seen the hoop idea on pointers I think and wanted to make it work for a boy. I bought a toy hoop from kmart and covered it on a wood look contact. The hoop actually looked more like it was covered in a bandaid but moving on 🙂 Next I went to buy garden to pick some greenery to add to the hoop. That is it. This years cake is the simplest yet. I bought a sponge from coles, cut it in half and covered in cream. Once again I was going for a naked cake look and just added some fake blueberries to add texture and interest.

I think my handsome boy looks adorable but he did not have one single bite of cake. He isn’t a huge eater so it was sort of expected but I thought he might like getting dirty. But no, he just wanted to crawl to me. Giving him a wooden spoon helped keep him preoccupied. So if you are concerned about your child, this is what I can get from a baby that is not slightly interested in the cake!

I have lots of baby and cake smash photo inspiration here. If you want some ideas in styling I have more information here.
