1st Birthday Cake Smash Photoshoot

Updated: Sep 7

To celebrate Brooks' milestone first birthday on the 23rd of July 2020, we arranged a cake smash photoshoot!


When Brooks was born, one of his uncles bought him a 'Where The Wild Things Are' book, and he has loved it ever since! He even has a foldout kids sofa with the book design!


Which is how we decided on our theme for the cake smash. It was such a fun day and the details are below!

We'll eat you up, we love you so! A throwback to baby Brooks at only four months old!




Photographer: Fleurette Photography


Note: I highly recommend Amy from Fleurette Photography, if you're in the Brisbane area or surrounds, contact her for all your maternity, newborn, baby and family photography needs. She's talented, affordable and professional, and will put you at ease during the shoot, not to mention her studio is located in an area with a stunning natural backdrop. Amy is especially patient and calm with the unpredictability of photographing babies and kids, and will be sure to capture your children's spirit and charm!


Photoshoot Location: Woodhill, Queensland, Australia.


Cake: This is a toddler-friendly 'healthy' cake made by mama! It's an oat flour cake with no added sugar and natural greek yoghurt for the frosting. If you'd like the recipe, click here.
