Charlie and the Chocolate Factory inspired cake smash photoshoot
 

Isla had a cake smash shoot to celebrate her third birthday and the theme was decided to be Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Traditionally I would have gone with purple and created an outfit fit for Willy Wonka himself but Isla's favourite colour is pink! So we took some of the book elements and used them to inspire this photoshoot that Isla loved.

I use Pinterest to draw together ideas for the themes for my photoshoots quite often. I pin different things that I think might be useful - ideas for costumes, general setups that might lend themselves, cake ideas, colours, textures, specific themed props and I put the idea together from these boards. You can see my Pinterest board for this cake smash photoshoot in my Leeds studio here.

All cake smash packages include everything you need to make your little one's birthday celebration perfect - the set, the decorations, the balloons, the cake, even the outfit for the messy part of the session is included. The only thing you need to bring is a nice outfit for the portrait part of the session at the start, This is also the perfect time to get an updated family portrait of you all together.

To keep with the all-out pink request for Isla's cake smash I went with the modern version of Verruca Salt for her outfit which worked brilliantly for her portrait part of the session as well as the messy cake smash. The tutu is from Miss Francis and the outfit was completed by the perfect lollipop bow from Bow Sew Cute Designs.
