Baking a birthday cake portraits
This shoot was a feat of planning and cunning! As a surprise for their dad’s 50th birthday Charlie and Frankie (who I photographed a couple of years ago here), baked a cake and I photographed them doing it. Then at the party given to honour his birthday, the same cake (OK, a replica, but almost the same cake), was presented to him along with a fabulous set of framed prints of the girls baking it. Genius! All carefully orchestrated by Charlie and Frankie’s mum Sam whose skills in getting dad removed from the house at the right moments along with the logistics of baking several identical cakes, were very impressive! I’m very pleased to report that the birthday surprise was a huge success and the birthday boy was over the moon with his present.
