Freddie's Smashing First Birthday

He was my first newborn. I met Freddie when he was just 7 days old. He was swamped by a gorgeous Mickey Mouse teddy and he stole my heart. He is now the poster boy of my site with numerous revisits to the studio over the year and now he is one, we thought we would pull out all the stops for a smashing good time. 

Cake smashes are becoming increasingly popular in the UK, with sets becoming more Americanised in style; elaborate, colourful and creative. With Freddie's, we went all out Mickey Mouse and here is how we did it...

The Set - Bright yellow seamless paper with bright banners and Mickey Mouse balloons in red and blue. The old faithful handcrafted wooden chairs and of course, as many Mickey "Mice" that we could muster up, including the original big boy from Freddie's newborn shoot. 

The Cake - Expertly created by Jodie Williamson, the cake was layered on the inside in the colours of Mickey - red, black and yellow and covering in a super tasty, white frosting complete with a topper of the finest Mickey Ears

The Outfit - Full kudos to Freddie's mum for finding the cutest Mickey outfit for Freddie to wear; you seriously can't take a bad photo of a baby looking this cute!

Once you have the set and the cake, you just add baby and shoot away!

All my cake smashes are now offered with an optional "Splash element" - a great way to clean baby up before taking them home! 

For Freddie's first birthday, his parents also selected to have a lifestyle shoot, of course asking to include a snuggle shot with the now infamous Mickey Mouse! 

To book your cake smash - for any age!!- please drop me an email via the website and we can discuss availability and theme. 

Until Next Time, Smile for the Camera,
