Nailah came to visit us for her cake smash recently – and she looked like a real little African Princess in her beautiful outfit. And let’s not forget Mom and Dad looking equally regall …

Little Jemmah came to visit us for her unicorn-themed cake smash recently. This is a very popular theme for girls and we completely understand why! Jemmah was such a star during her session – a little shy at the beginning, smashed her cake in a very lady-like fashion (leaving plenty of cake for Mommy to take home) and had lots of fun in the bubble bath.

When I was told that little Kylie loooooves her rubber duckies at bath time, I was doing a happy dance – this theme has been on my wish list for a while. So how did the session go? 

She gave us some very cute smiles during the portraits, was not to keen on smashing the cake (it’s such a gorgeous cake, I can’t really blame her) and then had lots of fun playing with the bubbles in the bath at the end. 

Have a look at our favourites from the session.

Little Rohan recently visited us for his Sailor themed cake smash and we managed to find sailor hats for everyone. Rohan wasn’t very fond of his Captain hat but we managed to get a few where he was wearing it.

Little Eliyana did such a great job during the cake smash section of her session – all the smashing left very little energy for splashing! We could see that she was going to have a very good nap on the way home.

Cookie Monster Cake Smash | Cape Town Cake Smash Photographer | Michelle Koekemoer Photography

Cake smash sessions have a couple of possible outcomes, one of them is a very dirty studio floor and child. Fortunately for us, Cayden behaved like a real Cookie Monster during his recent cake smash and we ended up with bright blue icing sugar everywhere.

Look how much¬†fun he had …

Hulk Paint Splash | Cape Town Paint Splash Photographer | Michelle Koekemoer Photography

For Nathans’ first birthday, mom wanted to do a paint splash and we were thrilled to have another one of these fun sessions in the studio. 

She also wanted to have a Hulk themed session, so we made a Hulk bursting through the wall for the backdrop and dressed Nathan in ripped purple pants that we made from T-shirt material. 

But with that fair skin, ginger hair and pretty blue eyes, I think little Nathan looks more like baby Ed Sheeran than baby Hulk, what do you think?

When Samiera contacted us to book a cake smash for her twins, we were very excited as little Sa-ad and Imaan would be our first twins in the studio. And how adorable are they! But I certainly have a lot of respect for parents with twins after this session!
