Studio Sessions – Valentines Mini and Cake Smash!

Child Photography

Love is in the air

It’s been a busy old week at the JB Moments Photography Studio. First up was Amber for a Valentines themed Mini Session. This years theme was ‘Hearts Everywhere’ and boy did I go for it. Heart-shaped balloons, heart confetti, heart banners, heart cushions. You name it if it was heart shaped I had it.

We are not amused.

Amber fully embraced the Valentines theme as well with a cute red tutu and sequined heart top (they don’t do it in adult sizes, I checked!). But to start with she wasn’t feeling the love and Dad was worried that, whilst cute, she looked sad 🙁

Baby Shark

I often wish I had a camera pointing at the families behind me because I reckon I would’ve got some cracking images. You see Mum, Dad, Gran and Uncle were all performing the Baby Shark song to make Amber laugh.

And it worked. After several verses!!

Let them eat cake

Next up was a very special one year old. Those of you that follow me know that I normally do doughnut smashes  (in fact wee Amber is booked in for one to celebrate her first birthday). But I am happy to do fruit, spaghetti, paint…..Whatever gets nice and messy! Wee Fern’s mum had her heart set on cake so that’s exactly what we did. 🙂

But first, the sensible shot

Before we got down and dirty with the cake we marked the occasion formally! Fern couldn’t stop smiling. Especially when mum and dad where doing Paw Patrol impressions behind me (again, I need that studio cam!!).

OMG, it’s CAKE time!

Fern’s Mum found the cute banner on Etsy which went perfectly with Fern’s yellow tutu (and my ONE letters and balloons). Only a mahoosive chocolate cake would do for this little lady.

Straight to business

Some little ones aren’t too keen on the cake at first but Fern had no such issues. Straight in with both hands. Atta girl! In fact, the way she attached that cake, I think she may be my spiritual twin!

Wooden spoons – for extra messiness!

I like to add a wooden spoon into a cake smash to help the littles to destroy their cake. Fern took to it like a champ.

Good clean fun

I’m not sure who enjoyed themselves more. Fern, her parents or me! A couple of times I had camera shake as I was laughing so much.

I know I say it all the time…but…I fricken love my job.

All good things come to an end

All too soon it was over and Fern got cleaned up and back into her dinosaur onesie. I couldn’t wait to start editing her pics and got them back to her parents that evening. Much to their delight.

Next up in the studio was 10-week new Charlie, then it was a visit to Stirling Uni to capture the Consul General of Japan give his take on Brexit and in between all that frantically editing my newest nephews newborn pictures I took last week. Check out next weeks blogs for all that good stuff 🙂
