My Mum makes the best cakes!

Baby Portrait – Cake Smash Photography Dumfries

What happens when you take a one year old, an amazing cake maker and a photographer?

You get Riley enjoying his final Watch Me Grow session and cake smash, me “helping” him to get stuck into his cake (of course I didn’t have any cake at all doing this process..)  and mum and dad sitting back relaxing and watching the chaos unfold… Oh and mess, lots and lots of mess!

The final watch me grow session is amazing as I have seen Riley grow and develop from a smily baby through to the cheeky, gorgeous toddler he is rapidly turning into – a typical boy full of fun and nonsense.

As with all my cake smash sessions we started off with some more traditional portraits then got stuck into the fun bit, destroying the beautiful cake his mum, Dream Cakes by Donna, had made and finally we finished up with a splash in the tub.  Great fun and a cheeky wee clean up too!  I am not sure which part Riley enjoyed as he smiled and chatted through out the whole session although I think his smile in the last image I will share probably tops it!

So of all the images from the session I think these are my favourites..


Baby Portraits Dumfries

Start off with a bit more traditional portraits..Baby Photography Annan

What more does a boy need, balloons, cards and cake!

Then comes the cake – it was delicious!!

And finally the clean up – how gorgeous is this smile!!

The end result a series of beautiful images capturing the joy and memories of Riley’s first birthday – moments to treasure and cherish.
