The Lady Behind the Business

August 02, 2019

All about me and Cake Smash Props has grown as a business. Including details about Naturally Newborn Photo Props.

Hello to returning customers and new customers. I thought I would mix my blog post up a bit this month and focus on me…mainly!!

I think it is just as important me getting to know my customers as it is you getting to know me. I’d like to start of this post by saying a big thank you to all of you readers for helping me achieve my dream and being part of doing what I love to do best- sew!

I’m a bubbly person, which means I’m always up for a chat. One of the best parts of my job is receiving your Cake Smash stories. They fill me with so much joy and just make me want to keep sewing! For anyone that hasn’t shared their story and wants to, click this link to send over your story.


My story started when I was just a child. Ever since I was little, I have always been intrigued by the intricate detail that goes into creating any handmade products and this intuition has lead me to where I am today. Besides, nothing can beat handmade products.

Cake Smash Props has grown as a business and along the way I have grown as a person too. Learning how to run a small business single handily has been stressful but rewarding. I feel privileged to be doing something I am passionate about. And that is important! Just look at my office transformation:

New workshop

My favourite part of Cake Smash Props is coming up with new and quirky ideas that create the perfect Cake Smash photo- even if that means waking up at 3am with a brilliant idea and writing it down (this has happened to me many times!!). 

One of my latest ideas and creations has been implementing the sister business to Cake Smash Props: ‘Naturally Newborn Photo Props’ (see previous blog for full details). The importance of creating Naturally Newborn Photo Props was to include comfortable but elegant props.

Many of the Naturally Newborn products are still handmade by me and if I have not made them, I have spent many hours sourcing them to make sure that as much love goes into every item (and the hard work pays off!).

If you’re interested in purchasing any of our products at Cake Smash Props or Naturally Newborn Photo Props, then head over to the websites now! We cater for EVERY occasion- yes, even Christmas! Check out our tartan collection, perfect for the family Christmas photo shoot.

Please do drop me a line on Facebook if you have any questions. 

Love from,  Laurraine x
