After finding me on good old Google, searching for a cake smash photographer in Bradford, the lovely Neelam got in touch to arrange Zakariyya’s 1st birthday cake smash.
As the time grew closer, she reached out to say that he’d been diagnosed with several food allergies, and had developed a waryness of new places & people. Naturally, Mum was worried about both, so I reassured her that my baker would take care of the cake, and I’d take place of any on the day nerves.
After a few puzzled looks from little man, who had no idea what was about to happen, we got him changed, and watched as he tentatively touched this giant cake.
Often, babies are a bit confused, overwhelmed, and unsure on a cake smash. Is it really theirs? Will they get told off for touching it? Why is it bigger than their head?
All very valid questions, don’t you think?
At his parents’ request, I’m keeping this sweet boy’s cheeky smiles just for them, so here’s what happened during his not-very-messy smash.
