A cake smash is such a fun way to celebrate your baby’s first birthday! I offer basic smash sessions, or smash and splash sessions where we will capture your baby having fun splashing in the bath as they get cleaned up from their messy session.
The atmosphere is always so lovely during these sessions! Have fun watching your baby get messy, knowing you don’t have to worry about the cleanup.
Before your session we will have discussed colour schemes and if you have any special preferences for your session to make sure everything is perfect! A small selection of outfits are available to use during your cake smash, but you are very welcome to bring your own if you prefer.
We will start with a few portraits without the cake, so you have some cute, mess free portraits to choose from, then we will move straight into smashing some cake! We take things at your baby’s pace, as they can sometimes be a little daunted at being in a new place and a funny outfit, so if they need a little time to settle that’s absolutely fine! If they need to stop for a cuddle or a milk break part way through that’s absolutely fine!
After the cake has been smashed it’s time to clean up! If you have booked a mini smash, I will provide a small baby bath for you to get your little one cleaned up before getting them dressed again – don’t forget your towel! I also recommend bringing a change of clothes for yourself just in case your little one wants lots of messy cake cuddles during the session!
If you have booked a smash and splash session, I will change the studio round ready for the splash session whilst you clean baby off and have a cuddle. There are two options for the splash sessions – either a fruity milk bath (vegan friendly!), or a traditional bubble bath complete with rubber duckies!
After your session I will lightly edit your images and send you an online proofing gallery for you to select the ones you would like. The images you see in your proofing gallery will look very similar to the images you will receive, but no background editing or skin correcting will have taken place at this stage. Once you have made your selection, a full edit will be completed on your chosen images and a link will be provided for you to download the full size digital images.
All packages include image files, additional images and products can be purchased separately (See Prices page for add ons)
