Grey and Gold Cake Smash | Cape Town Cake Smash Photographer | Michelle Koekemoer Photography

When Janine and I chatted about the theme for Gabriels’ Cake Smash session, she wanted something elegant. We decided on a grey and gold colour scheme so Norman I build a balloon wall for the backdrop – we are rather proud of our creation – and I just that loooong after the session was done, we still had sensitive fingers. 

Gabriel is the sweetest boy with the most striking eyes. But he was not interested in his cake AT ALL – we even got his older brother involved to see if we can get him to persuade Gabriel to give it a bash. But nothing.

He was happy to play with balloons and catch bubbles though, so that is what we did. And that is just how it goes when you work with kids. You need lots of patience, and you have to be flexible in your plans. In the end, you will still get beautiful images of your little one that showcases their personality.

For little Luhle’s cake smash, we could not have selected a more appropriate theme than a princess theme. She is such petite little girl and was a perfect lady during the entire cake smash session bit she wasn’t very impressed with the bubble bath we had on offer. All in all, we had a great time and managed to capture some beautiful memories for Mom and Dad to treasure.
