I think there is a chance many of us have fond memories of Winnie The Pooh from our childhood, and it makes my heart so happy to see these very old stories hang around and be passed on to our little ones. There’s just something heartwarming and wholesome about Winnie the Pooh, isn’t there? Well, you’re in for a visual treat with this adorable milestone session!
This is a theme that has been requested about a handful of times in my Kitchener/Waterloo based studio and it really brings me so much joy to pull out that beautiful painterly backdrop, dig out all the props and get creative in setting it up. This theme is so colourful and HAPPY. It’s just a feel-good kinda set, and it was made even better by this darling little cake smasher who was celebrating her first birthday. Mum and Dad supplied their own cake for this session as well as the most perfect dress imaginable which we used for the portraits part of her session. We put her in the sweetest little lace romper from my collection for the cake smashing part. Everything was just perfect!
There was no shortage of smiles from this little one year old. She hammed it up for the camera and had the best time ever! Such dainty fingers picking at a cake all for herself, and a delightful little bubble bath was the cherry on top of it all.
I definitely hope I can do this set/backdrop again soon because it’s just so special and the photos always turn our phenomenal. Her collection was huge and every single photos was glorious. It’s pretty versatile as well and I’ve had the pleasure of photographing both the Cake-Smashing ladies and the Cake-Smashing gentleman on it, both with fantastic and unique results!
Let me know if Winnie the Pooh has a special place in your childhood which you’re now passing along to your littles.
