The Monster Mash! Birthday Cake Smash Portraits in Hamilton, Ontario

Before the littlest ones are covered in icing, I enjoy capturing a few family portraits. Any time a session takes place at a family home, I love to incorporate details of the space. This result in a more personalized gallery of images. The tiny bench we found in the backyard was just the right size for the birthday boy!

It is always fun to see how different little ones will react to their first birthday cake. While some are eager to dive in, filling their fists with icing, others are more methodical in their approach.

I loved how this young lad’s monster-themed cake reflected the characters on his neck tie. Planning outfits in advance often is a worthwhile investment of time, as the colours and patterns chosen help tell the story in each image. As an example, vibrant colour accents create an uplifting tone perfect for celebratory events and children’s portraits while earth-tones suggest a warmth and are well suited for family or couple’s portraiture. As a Hamilton, Ontario, photographer, I am happy to offer general guidelines to those planning their session with Kells Natural Photography, in order to ensure a fantastic result!

You can certainly see the resemblance between brother and sister in the image below! Both children were excited to have an entire cake to themselves!
