Cake Smash portrait session with baby K

Well, well, well…what can I say about his particular cake smash photo session.  The portrait photos prior to the cake smash were FANTASTIC!  Look at this little cutie’s smile and curls.  Then the cake smash session began and this little girl was NOT having any part of it.  It wasn’t until mommy came into the scene (literally) and sat with her before she would even venture remotely close to her cake.  We even switched to a different cake, which she seemed to like better than the first one (you can’t even believe how many cakes these guys brought with them!)  However, I still managed to get quite a few shots of her smiling, despite being covered in cake and icing.

Happy birthday little girl.  You’re now one year old.  At least 20-25 years from now mommy and daddy can use the cake smash story for a good laugh at your wedding reception and they’ll have the photos to prove it.

Enjoy these portraits and cake smash photos of this little cutie.  You can also check out more of my cake smash photos.

Gatineau Cake Smash Photography

2 Year Old Baby Cake Smash | Gatineau Baby Photographers

My daughter’s birthday is this month, so I wanted to do a 2 year old cake smash photo session with her as I LOVE shooting cake smash sessions and her 1 year cake smash session from last year turned out beautifully.

Last year I had Thimble Cakes make my daughter’s smash cake and they did a beautiful job.  However, this year I wanted to try to bake and decorate a smash cake myself, since I found some really great ideas and tips on Pinterest on how to decorate a giant cupcake.  And I was very blessed to have my friend, Gisleide from L’Assiette Dessert, help me and give me pointers on how to make frosting rosettes.  (My bad for not making the best butter cream icing to work with, but it still turned out pretty good for my first time.)

For anyone looking to have a one year cake smash or two year cake smash photo session for their baby, I do them in my home in L’Ange Gardien or outdoors in Ottawa or Gatineau.  Send me an e-mail and I can send you my price list.

Anyway, I hope that you enjoy the cake smash photos of my little girl.  Have a great week.  You can also check out more of my cake smash photos.

Gatineau Cake Smash Photo Session with Baby J

Last week I shot some cake smash photos of little baby J.  This is not the first time that I have photographed this little boy.  I did some family portraits of him, his sister, maman and papa this past spring.

You never know how a one year old is going to react to a cake smash session.  Some start crying and want nothing to do with the cake, while others are loving the sugary goodness.  This little boy was totally loving the sweetness of his predicament and I was able to capture some of those gooey moments.

For anyone interested in booking a cake smash photo session for their baby (one year cake smash or two year cake smash), contact me to book your session.  I shoot them in my home in L’Ange Gardien or outdoors in Ottawa or Gatineau. Send me an e-mail and I can send you my price list.  Meanwhile, enjoy the cake smash photos of this little man.  You can check out more of my cake smash photography in my photo gallery.

Ottawa Cake Smash Portrait

One year cake smash with Baby “E” (Ottawa baby photographers)

I just did another cake smash photo session with a cute little boy this week.  I must say that I am really enjoying these baby cake smash photo sessions.  I love seeing these one year old babies having fun getting messy and trying out their sweet tooth (sometimes with a lack of teeth).  Even though baby “E” was not into the whole getting messy and eating his cake, he was all smiles during his cake smash.   And funny enough, he kept on trying to put his foot into the cake.

I must mention my thoughts about the cake.  I sent a photo to Baby “E’s” maman of the backdrop that I was going to use so that she could bring a couple of outfits that would match its colours.   This talented lady went above and beyond my expectations.  She made his GORGEOUS giant cupcake using the three background colours.  She even made the large cherry on top.  And if that wasn’t enough, she also made two very cute and colourful bow ties for the photo shoot.  I was so impressed.

If you are interested in booking a cake smash photo session for your baby (one year cake smash or two year cake smash), contact me to book your session.  I shoot the cake smash sessions in my home in L’Ange Gardien or outdoors in Ottawa or Gatineau.  Send me an e-mail and I can send you my price list.  Meanwhile, I hope that you enjoy these photos of such a cute little boy with a very cute smile.  Check out more of my cake smash photos to see some of my past cake smash photo shoots.

Cake Smash Photo Session of Baby “A” (Ottawa Photographers)

Baby “A’s” giant cupcake style cake was made by her talented mommy.  It’s amazing what a parent will do to ensure that their child gets great photos.  I loved it.  The cake turned out beautifully.  I couldn’t have asked for a prettier cake.

Unlike most babies that I have photographed during a cake smash photo session, baby “A” was thrilled to try out a sugary dessert for the first time.  She took her time to check out the cake, to touch it and then try it out.  And then after that she couldn’t help herself to the yummy dessert.

She didn’t end up crying until the very end and then it was a wrap up.   Thanks to her mommy and daddy for singing Mexican nursery rhymes to her during the shoot to keep in a good mood.  🙂

If you are interested in booking a cake smash photo session for your baby (one year cake smash or two year cake smash), contact me for a price list.  I shoot these sessions either in my home in L’Ange Gardien or outdoors in Ottawa or Gatineau.  Meanwhile, I hope that you will all enjoy these cute photos of a cute little girl.  Take a look at some of my other cake smash photos from past cake smash photo shoots.

One year cake smash with Baby L

Baby Cake Smash (Ottawa Baby Photographers)

A few weeks ago I photographed a baby cake smash of baby “L”, who is five days older than my own little girl.  His mother and I have known each other for five years as we used to work together.

Baby L’s mom is a very crafty lady and she honed in on her crafty skills to make his amazing looking cake!  I was so impressed.  My only request was that the icing had to be blue because I had already figured out what the prop colours would be, so I wanted everything to match.  I e-mailed her a photo of a large cupcake style cake with blue icing and to my pleasant surprise, she made it pretty similar.  Fantastic!  It made for even better photos for little L.

Not all babies are into the whole cake smash thing.  Some love the fact that they can finally sink their little teeth (or lack therof) into some sugary goodness.  There are other babies who do not like the feeling of getting gooey butter cream icing all over them.  Baby L was the latter kind of baby, but I was still able to get some really fun cake smash photos.  I hope that you enjoy the photos of this cute little baby.

If you are interested in booking a cake smash photo session for your baby (one year cake smash or two year cake smash), contact me for a price list.  I shoot these sessions either in my home in L’Ange Gardien, QC or outdoors in Ottawa or Gatineau.  Meanwhile, enjoy the cake smash photos of this little man.  Take a look at some of my other cake smash photos.

One Year Old Baby Cake Smash

One year baby cake smash (Ottawa Baby Photographers)

Besides my daughter’s newborn photos shoots, I have not put so much effort and planning into a photo shoot as I have with this particular photo session.  I have been planning this cake smash for my daughter since around the time she was born.  Being a photographer, I couldn’t help but document my daughter’s first year with monthly photo shoots, so what better way to finish off her 12th month than to do a cake smash photo shoot.  I wanted to make sure that not only were the decorations cute and fun, but I wanted the cake to be the pinnacle of perfection.

I don’t know why, but ever since I was pregnant with my daughter I associate the colour lilac with her and so I wanted to incorporate lilac (lavender…po-TAY-to…po-TAH-to… whatever you want to call it) into my photo shoot.  Thimble Cakes (Bank & Gilmour) were very accommodating to my specific requests for my daughter’s cake smash session cake.  I wanted chocolate so that it would show up well in the photos.  I wanted a creamy icing decorated with rosettes all over the top.  And I was also specific about not only wanting lavender icing for the cake (in honour of my sweet baby), but it couldn’t be too light so that it would still pop out in the photos.  And the cherry on top of my requests was that not only did I not want them to use sugar in the cake or icing (since I feel that my baby is too young to have a sudden blast of sugar like that), but that I did not want them to use any artificial sweeteners.  The exact wording in my e-mail to Wendy was,

“Are you able to do a chocolate cake with lilac coloured icing, but still sugar free?  And by sugar free, what do you use to sweeten it?  I want a natural sweetener—not any artificial sweeteners like splenda, aspartame, saccharine, sucralose or acesulfame potassium.  I also do not want her eating fructose or corn sweeteners.  I am sorry that I am so picky.  I just don’t want my one year old eating that kind of stuff.” 

That’s kind of a tall order and I do not doubt that most bakers would have shuddered to think about fulfilling this order, but Wendy at Thimble Cakes met my request and simply wrote,  “Not a problem at all to make that pretty cake.  We use agave and xylitol.  Both are all natural sweeteners.  We don’t like artificial around here either!”    Yay!  I was happy to hear that they could do it and without sugar to boot!  That totally made my day.

I was delighted when I picked up the pretty cupcake cake and I drove like an old granny all the way home in order to keep the cake from toppling over if I turned a corner too quickly (which I do most of the time).  Oh, and then I had to make sure that I didn’t wipe out on the ice in my driveway while carrying it.  But I did manage to get the cake home and then I had to set up the props, lights, flooring, etc. before my little girl got too tired and cranky to want to do the shoot.  I must thank my stepson for helping me out by entertaining Lily while I set up, did test shots and then was ready to shoot.

I must admit that my daughter was NOT pleased with getting icing on her at all.  She immediately began crying and protesting.  She was absolutely disgusted with having thick, gooey icing on her hands and feet.  So I stopped shooting in order to calm her down.  I then had my stepson let her taste some icing and then she slowly began to warm up to that big cupcake in front of her.  It was a lot of fun seeing Lily get into the nitty and gritty of the shoot.  And man, I got some FANTASTIC shots of my little girl—ones that I am going to cherish for a lifetime as will she.  You can check out more of my baby shots as well as cake smash photos on my Little Lamb Photography website.

For those interested in booking a cake smash photo session for your baby (one year cake smash or two year cake smash), contact me for a price list.  I shoot these sessions either in my home in L’Ange Gardien or outdoors in Ottawa or Gatineau.   And with that, I leave you with some fun and cute shots of my favourite little girl in the whole wide world.  Enjoy!  You can check out more of my cake smash photography in my photo gallery.
