I am a very lucky man. I recently received an email from Dinesh, who asked me to photograph his twins for their first birthday. I have been fortunate enough to be a Canberra Cake Smash photographer many times before and this was my second time with twins. I was very excited.
Dinesh and his family all gathered together to watch the Cake Smash unfold. Not only that, they made the cakes and decorated the wall. It is really nice to see the family come together for special events like first birthday parties.
For those of you that haven’t heard of a Cake Smash, it is when you take a perfectly good cake, place it in front of a baby and photograph the results. Awesome huh!? Some kids kick it, some throw it and others just plant their face in it. As you’ll see below, these kids did a little of all of these. Nonetheless, my favourite photos are the ones of Dinesh enjoying the cakes once the kids had tired of them.
Those of you looking for a fun way to capture your child’s first birthday with Cake Smash in Canberra, I’d love to hear from you.
Enjoy the photos.
