Tea, cake and photography

Fanni and I had been discussing a shoot swap for some time when we stumbled across our mutual love of cake! It was at this point we decided our shoot should involve cake and then the idea just developed into something more than a shoot. After a bit of research we settled on the most wonderful tea shop bake-a-boo, and rather than indulging in a spot of afternoon tea together we thought we would share the fun with friends and invited the lovely Dasha along and the very talented make-up artist Aline
Walking into bake-a-boo is just heaven. There are delicious treats everywhere, the decor is just amazing and the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. I can’t thank Zoe enough for letting us invade her gorgeous shop and creating a beautiful haven in West Hampstead.  If you are ever at a loose end or fancy a lovely afternoon tea, I can not rave about this shop enough!
It ended up being a great day of us girls hanging out, having fun and taking photos.  It was a perfect way to spend a Saturday and I would gladly do it all again.


  1. WOW! love these photos Lisa! You captured Dasha and myself gorgeously! I especially love the ones with the lights of the shop behind me. Awesome work! x

  2. absolutely lovely! from the cakes to the location to the ladies themselves. the photography has a wonderful fresh, but vintage feel to them.
    now i want tea & cakes! good thing i just baked cookies today. 🙂

  3. gorgeous! We have a cake shop here in Wellington NZ like this – called Marthas Pantry – its amazing!! Great shots!

  4. Pretty, pretty, pretty! SO gutted I didn’t make it.

  5. Afternoon tea is something that ought to be adopted in my family.
