Meet Ruby. This little gem was my last session of 2021, and I have to say that thanks to her I ended the year on a high!
Ruby and her Mummy came into the studio for a birthday cake smash session. Now, I’ve recently changed up all my packages (find out more here) and they’d booked in for my nice and simple cake smash shoot. I love these sessions, I just keep it all very, well, nice and simple! Just baby and their cake. Plus a balloon arch and any props from around the studio that take their fancy of course!)
Ruby’s Mum brought along all the outfits we used in the shoot and she’d made the most perfect choices. The white and cream of the clothes went so well with Ruby’s complexion, beautiful hair colour and eyes.
Ruby is, according to her Mummy, not much of a smiler. She prefers to watch and take in the world. I noticed just how curious she is. She loves noise and was so fascinated by the sounds of the studio and was so intrigued by everything that was going on.
First birthday cake smash session
Ruby was in the studio to celebrate turning one. We started out with a very minimalistic set up, including some big white letters spelling out “ONE”. She loved exploring those, picking them up, pushing them over, whatever she could do! I am so pleased with how her personality just shines through this entire shoot. She started out with her adorable serious face on, studiously exploring the setups. Then we moved on to the cake…
Ruby’s little face lit up as soon as we brought the cake out for her. She tentatively poked it a few times and then took some little bites. She really enjoyed it! Her little face scrunched up with joy and she just wanted to touch the cake, feel the textures and then, as her confidence grew, she began to throw it around. With full encouragement from us of course! Soon she was happily running around, chucking cake everywhere and we were all joining in and throwing balloons.
I always finish my cake smash shoots with the mini bath, much to Ruby’s delight. She was so giddy and just full of smiles! I love how you can see her little teethy pegs showing when she gives that huge grin!
