Freya’s Expressionful 1st Birthday Cake Smash

Cake smash for Freya's 1st Birthday with giant cupcakeSmash the cake photography by Shellie Wall PhotographyWhat a fantastic cake smash this is! So many expressions are shown by Freya as she celebrated her 1st birthday with a smash the cake photography session, captured by Shellie Wall Photography, based in Norfolk, UK. Freya was presented with the most gorgeous giant cupcake to enjoy and a wooden spoon to help with the smashing! The sweet paper circle garland matches the cake perfectly and Freya’s polka dot outfit. You get to see a great range of emotions from wonder, to laughter and to tears, which I am sure were quickly soothed.

What are the ingredients for a creating a great cake smash:

  • Take one super cute baby celebrating her/his 1st birthday
  • Add a giant sugary wonderland cupcake
  • Add simple & lovely accessories
  • Don’t forget a pinch of good lighting
  • Mix in with a talented baby photographer

  1. I think the smash cake setting is perfect for the 1st birthday photography shoots. The photos usually come out looking so creative and really capture the personality of the 1 year old. I will definitely be having one.

  2. Love it. I am sooo excited about doing my first cake smash in July as a first birthday session for a client. This is great inspiration so thanks for featuring it!

    Another idea I will be incorporating is a bath in the garden in a vintage tub after the cake has been demolished (fingers crossed for nice weather, failing that indoors will do the trick too). This will kill two birds with one stone – a good clean up for the cakey baby and more fabulous photos!
