Having seen lots of cake smash shoots going around since the trend hit, I secretly wished I’d had one when I was 1! And when Marcelle asked me to do a shoot for Genevieve for her 1st birthday, I couldn’t have been more excited for it! She organised the cutest Minnie Mouse theme (pink all the way!) and the cake was absolutely adorable! And how gorgeous was that sparkly pink and black tutu? Wow! Genevieve wasn’t too sure about the whole ‘smash the cake to smithereens’ bit, apparently she takes after Mom and doesn’t like getting her hands dirty! She was brave enough stick it out for a little while before it became overwhelming, and Mom and Dad figured it was time for a bath – her favourite thing! Her little face lit up while she played with her toys and marvelled at the bubbles. I’d like to think we’re going to set a new trend – Bubbles & Bathtub Shoots!
Thanks to Marcelle & Francois for being so organised, so patient with your little one and for making her smile! I hope Genevieve will look back and enjoy these photos, and I hope both of you enjoy them too! Thank you for letting us capturing some special moments for her 1st birthday!
