Family – Baby Leo | Cake Smash

I first met Leo and his mom Casey at the Bub Hub Massage Class. Casey then asked me to photograph his naming ceremony at their house. Leo is now one – how time flies, so we organised a Cake Smash for this little man and did he love it. We did the shoot in Leo’s nursery against the bright orange wall and it was the perfect backdrop for a fun shoot.  I loved the pure joy he got from playing with the textures of the cake and then realising that it tasted really good and so ate cake – lots of cake. At the end of the session when there were only crumbs from the cake left the little Boston Terriers came upstairs to join in the fun of the cake smash.

Ps. How cute is Leo’s little Uno shirt that Casey had made for him? I love it
