Ooh so this one's going to be a bit of a Marmite session...
So JJ's mummy sent me an email to ask if I'd be up for doing a cake smash with a difference... a zombie themed one! As a Walking Dead fan I literally squealed with excitement and said a big fat YES!
I had no idea what cake was coming, only that it fitted in with the theme and I couldn't wait to see it.
We started the session as I normally do, with some lovely portraits of JJ using various props and then some super simple ones on my fluffy rug.
Then came the best bit - cake smash time!
That cake was so gooey and sticky and so so realistic! We did have to remind ourselves that it was in fact cake, not brains, smushed all over his little face.
As you can imagine, it was a pretty hefty clean up operation afterwards! Out came the tub for JJ's bubble bath and between shots, mum was helping scrub him down and get the red food colouring out of his skin (I'm pretty sure he must have stayed dyed red for a few days afterwards!)
So what do we think?
We had so much fun shooting this cake smash!
