1. Happy Birthday Gia

    I’m beyond excited to finally show you all this outfit I have been holding onto for weeks. Ahoy Matey here it is!…

    Of course, the perfect baby to pull this off would need a mop of dark hair and dark complexion and when Gia came through the door, she was the perfect match! We’ve even included a sandcastle bucket and a beach ball to tie in with our nautical motif.

    Firstly we started with the pink tutu, a beautiful gift from Granny that was saved for Gia’s special day. Even Mum and Dad got to share limelight in this one, helping her showcase the look! It won’t be long before this little one is on her feet.

    Next it was cake time, which Gia playfully demolished. We all sang along Happy Birthday as she tore away chucks of sponge. This resulted in a lot of mess, but this was okay because Gia was able to clean herself up in a lovely warm bath with lots of bubbles cheered on by Mum, Dad and everyone at Carrie McKee Photography.

    Happy 1st Birthday Gia… Have a wonderful day<3

  2. Blake

    This happy chappy is Blake, and he spent a wonderful afternoon taking part in a Cake Smash shoot to celebrate his first birthday in a unique way. Blake was the first to try our new Stars and Spots theme. This included a cute spotty outfit; as well as a party hat (which didn’t remain on his head too long) and also metallic star decorations. His cake included a matching blue detailing to co-ordinate well with the set.

    Happy Birthday little man :)

  3. The Douglas’

    Yesterday we had the pleasure of meeting Kaiden, Hannah and Scarlet when they took part in one of our family shoots. These three cuties enjoyed posing for the camera both together and by themselves. Everyone was very excited about having their own lovely portrait shots. Cousins Scarlet and Hannah loved looking like Rapunzel in their beautiful photos, and Kaiden had a lot of fun spinning around on set when it was his time to shine!

    We got some beautiful shots of the two girls as well as some adorable pictures of siblings, Hannah and Kaiden.  These kids certainly brought a lot of fun to the studio!

  4. Noah Cakesmash

    This lovely little boy is Noah. He visited us recently to take part in a Cake Smash shoot to celebrate his first birthday.

    Noah was the first to try our Sailor theme. This included an outfit and bunting with an anchor print, as well as bright primary coloured decorations. His cake had some lovely blue detailing to match well with the set. At first our little sailor posed in a blue and white shirt, paired with some cute little jean shorts. Next Noah changed into some white woolen shorts and an adorable anchor-patterned bib. Dancing along to his favourite songs with Mummy and Granny, Noah devoured his cake immediately. We also managed to get some more adorable portraits of a very happy and clean one year old after his bath which was too cute to not share.

    Happy Birthday little man :)

  5. Aiofe

    Aiofe was our most recent cake smasher, isn’t she adorable? I just couldn’t resist featuring her on the blog!

    This Cake Smash had a a gold and pink colour scheme with stars scattered all over the set. It was perfect for this birthday celebration! At first Aiofe looked beautiful in her portraits, in which she wore a gorgeous cream dress. When the cake came out she changed into a pink tutu and headband, coordinating with the set perfectly! Aiofe was all smiles as she danced along to her favorite tunes and especially when the whole family sang happy birthday to her. At last bath time came, and after successfully covering Mummy in suds, Aiofe had lots of fun blowing bubbles with Daddy. She was all nice and clean and ready to go out to dinner with the family after the soapy fun!

    This Cake Smash also saw our first live stream on Facebook! Hopefully these will continue regularly and you can enjoy watching some behind the scenes action. Keep an eye out for more Cake Smashes soon!

  6. Jersey Cake Smash

    Jersey is another little cake smasher I would love you to meet. She was recently at the studio in celebration of her first birthday.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a baby so happy to eat a cake! It didn’t last long and was soon all over her and the floor. Jersey looked stunning in some portrait shots, wearing a simple but lovely white outfit. When the cake was in front of her, she did not hesitate to destroy! Doesn’t her happy little face make you smile? A bath was definitely needed for this cutie. She loved splashing around in the bubbles, but I do think she was wondering where all the cake went! This vibrant sunflower theme tied everything together perfectly.

  7. Aria Cake Smash


    This is Aria,one of the most recent to be involved in our Cake Smash sessions. Isn’t she adorable?

    This little cutie was definitely princess material in her pink tiara. Everyone was super impressed by her ballerina skills as she busted some moves in her frilly tutu. Then came the cake! Although a bit confused at first, it didn’t take long for Aria to dive in, ending up head to toe in a sugary mess. Who’d have thought she could get any more sweet? Bath time was just as fun, with a lot of laughs and bubbles to end the shoot.

  8. The McParlands

    Introducing the newest little edition to the Mc Parland brood, Mr Tiarnan Oisin, born at 12.43 and weighing 6lb 8oz. His proud big brother, Shay, is already very hands on and dotes on his new best friend. Shay is now a big 2 and is currently mastering all topics of conversation…mainly when am I getting ice – cream>/??

    These cute boys were here a few weeks ago but had been a bit poorly with a head cold, so we held off sharing. Thankfully both are on the mend and we can openly enjoy their adorableness. So here they are with Mum and Dad on one of their first outings as family of FOUR!

    Is this not the cutest?? …
