Cotswolds family shoot and cake smash.

I have done serval shoots for this lovely family! I covered Dan and Nadya’s UK wedding reception, pregnancy shoot, newborn shoot and now a shoot for their daughter’s 1st birthday.

This couple are always great to work with! They are creative and are always up for bringing some props along to the shoot.

On the day of the Cotswolds family shoot, my lovely clients met me in a location of my choice in Gloucestershire, which they were very pleased with. We tried a few different locations locally, so we had an assortment of different backdrops to work with.

Later into the shoot, we went to a local lake, where the couple got photobombed by a swan! It did make me laugh when I looked back through the images! This was also a great location for the cake smash shoot! We left this to the end of the shoot for obvious reasons!

Little Svetlana was much more reserved with her cake than I was expecting! She carefully picked at her cake, taking big mouthfuls and looking rather pleased with the whole situation! Her parents had to get involved to make it look a little more dramatic! The cake also had to be removed after a while, so she didn’t eat the whole thing!

I had such great fun with this family as always! I have been photographing this family for several years now, and hope there will be many more shoots with them in the future! They even joke about me being the wedding photographer for Svetlana in the future. Who knows, it could well happen! And how lovely that would be – bump to wedding photographer sounds good to me!

If you are thinking of booking a Cotswolds family shoot for your family then get in touch! An outdoor cake smash in a scenic location is always great fun too.

This shoot can also make a brilliant 1st birthday present for a little family of your choice!
