Ayaana One year Old Watermelon Smash / Mascot Cake Smash Photography

What you want for every cake smash session is a happy smiling baby who breaks out in giggles regularly. It is the dream. The secret is that it takes a fair bit of work to put any one year old in a new location and ask them to smile and laugh in front of a stranger, her camera and very large lights. We have many ways to coax but what is needed, more than anything else, is the co-operation of the parents and an willingness to try anything and everything to get those smiles.

Thankfully Ayaana's mum was prepared to do just that, over and over again, and we were all rewarded with the most beautiful reactions from Ayaana.

Ayaana is also a real fan of fruit so we used an alternative to cake for her session. I'd much prefer to work with a food that a baby likes than try to impose a new taste upon then. Luckily I mentioned this watermelon cake to Mum and sent her instructions and she created the beautiful cake which Ayaana didn't want to stop eating. (It was also nice an easy to clean up which was a small bonus for me!)

This is really one of the sweetest galleries, just look at that beautiful little birthday girl. Memories forever so you never forget. Happy 1st Birthday Ayaana.
