Ava Cake Smash

First Birthday Shoots


At Shutter Fever we always love welcoming our little visitors to our studio here in Charlestown, Co. Mayo, especially our little regulars! Ava has been a frequent guest over the past while and we always look forward to her photoshoots as she is a beautiful little girl, full of fun and life. Her cake smash was no exception! She arrived full of girly frills in her pink tutu outfit and gold and white top and the background we used of blue and gold perfectly complimented her ensemble.

Like most kids, Ava was only too happy to get stuck into her beautiful rose embellished, pink iced cake. Almost too gorgeous looking to eat, Ava made short work of smashing the cake with her feet and eating the icing off her toes! It’s not called a cake smash for no reason! Ava had an absolute ball and the resulting images were illustrative of this. Full of colour and life, they encapsulated her personality perfectly.

One Year Old Birthday Shoot

Cake smash photoshoots are always lots of fun. Every child that comes has their own unique personality and ways of doing things so we happily go with the flow and shoot the images as they happen. The resulting images are always vibrant and full of colour and the sheer innocence and sense of fun always shines through. Parents never get this time back so its lovely to have these images and happy memories to cherish forever

Portraits with Shutter Fever Photography

The cake smash experience is always a messy one. We don’t use any plastic backgrounds or fake cakes. Instead, we love to photograph the real interaction of the child and the mess just adds to the fun! We always tell parents to come prepared. Have a range of clothes for the little one and be aware that these shoots take at least an hour, maybe more, depending on how quickly the little birthday person settles into the experience! We will spend as long as it takes to get the perfect images as this is not an experience to be rushed.
