There’s A Lot of Cake Thievery Going On!

Rachel and I are like this (I’m crossing my fingers together).  In 2015, when she was pregnant with her first daughter we did maternity photos, then newborn, then 6 month and then a cake smash… and then we did it all over again with baby number two!  I didn’t get the chance to blog every session we did, but check out Rachel’s first maternity session here and her second here, and Raelynn’s newborn photos here and Lily’s here. You can also see some of their family photos featured here!

I was really excited and sad when I got the call from Rachel that it was time to photograph Lily’s cake smash. I was really happy because I love cake smashes (cake everywhere is always fun), but sad because this would be our last session together. I’m cheering myself up though, because I know we will do family photos again in the fall and I am also secretly hoping Rachel has another baby. Just putting it out there! Regardless, Rachel and her gorgeous family have become part of our family - the photographs of Jeff feeding Lily and himself are proof of that! 

We had such a blast photographing Lily’s cake smash. We dressed up and rocked out to Queen Elsa singing Let it Go (video courtesy of Rachel can be found on our Instagram), ate some cake and danced around! I do have a tip for anyone looking to do a cake smash, don’t go to the session hungry. Either that, or don’t invite Rachel, she couldn’t keep her hands off that cake! 

Here are some epic shots from our session with Lily (and her cake stealing Mom and our very own Jeff)!

Cake as Paint? A Cake Smash paint fest!

I like cake. A lot. I absolutely love pie, but I like cake. Most kids that come to our studio like cake. Ella on the other hand, she LOVES cake. I mean, she really couldn’t get enough of it. Using her hands to shovel it into her mouth wasn’t good enough, she had to use her feet too. Pure genius. She even started painting the floor with it. Which is far better for the environment than some paints, plus it's tastier to clean up.  Did you know that cake is a decent substitute for paint? You do now. You’re welcome.

I don’t know about you, but I think a pie smash might be a good idea. No, that’s just crazy. Pie should never be wasted by smashing. The cake must be going to my head!


Love, LOCPS xoxo

Emily Partied it up with a Mini Mouse Themed 1st Birthday Cake Smash!

There were rumours in the air that Emily was turning one and having an epic Mini Mouse themed party.  So naturally we, Amy and Jeff at Left of Centre Photography, decided to crash Emily's first birthday party. We arrived just as the adorable Emily was finishing up her meal and we feared that the party was coming to an end. That wasn't happening on our watch, so we knew it was time to bring out the cake! I have to say, it was one of the best parties I have ever crashed, mini mouse has always been a favourite character of mine, and with cake-a-plenty we were in our element.  So was Emily! We knew we had found the coolest party girl after discovering that she was still going strong, even after missing a couple of naps! We had such a great time photographing Emily's cake smash and we loved that Mom and Dad got in there with their mouse ears on!

Here are some of our faves from our session with Party Girl Emily! -
