I love being a Newman Photographer cake smashes, newborn photography and everything else, I get to capture such wonderful milestones with my amazing clients! A year ago I had the beautiful Mbali in my studio for her newborn photographs. I’m not sure where the last year has gone but I was so excited to welcome Mbali and her lovely family back into my studio! I’ve included one of the newborn photographs I captured of her as a tiny baby and it was hard to remember her all squishy and new when she was toddling around the studio so well!
We started with the family photography. I love this part of the cake smash, everyone connecting with the Birthday Girl or Boy and updating their family photographs. Then after a quick outfit change came the main event!
Mbali has so many expressions – I loved capturing them as she tested and tried out the cake and then toddled off! The cake was the beautiful creation of her Mum’s friend, it was perfect! I loved seeing the whole set come together with pink, purple and gold.
I think the Birthday girl’s favourite part of the whole thing was the splash! We get rid of all the sticky icing and she got to relax in the bubble bath, look at those beautiful smiles!
