CELEBRATING YOUR BABY'S FIRST BIRTHDAY WITH A CAKESMASH/SPLASH SESSION
WHAT DOES CAKE SMASH INVOLVE
WOHOOO!!!!!!!!! Your baby is ONE!!!! Hip Hip Hip!!!!! Hurray!!!!!
Cake smash is a fun way of celebrating your little one's first birthday. The best time to book your baby's cake smash photoshoot will be at least 4-6 weeks before their actual birthday, although I might be able to fit you in last minute subject to availability.
My cakesmash sessions are fun, unique and very beautiful, from beautiful pre-designed backdrop or bespoke backdrop, to bespoke designs of cakes to choose from, to the amazing outfits. It's truly remarkable and the experience is very memorable for parents. I will work with mum and dad to bring their ideas to life. Colours, themes, cakes (in consideration of dietary requirements), outfits and props are discussed prior to session to make sure your baby's cake smash photoshoot is perfect and memorable. I will provide your child with outfits required for the session from my amazing collection of studio outfits but please feel free to let me know if you would rather use your own outfits, I will work with you to make sure that everything is perfect for your little one's session.

To start off your fun filled cake smash session, I will take some beautiful portraits of your birthday baby in a neutral backdrop and then onto the cakesmash backdrop to mark such a special occasion.
Then onto the cake smash! This is where I'll let your baby get their hands dirty. They can explore the cake, play with it, smash it, throw it, and even eat some of it too. Some babies don't like to get their hands dirty, don't worry, I have a wooden spoon to encourage them. At first some babies are not too sure what to do or if they should destroy the beautiful cake, this is where myself and parents encourage them that's its ok and fun to get messy. I will get some lovely photographs of baby having lots of fun.
They will finish the session nice and clean with a nice warm splash in the bath. Most kids love this part the most, its sooo much fun, I encourage them to splash in the bubbly water, prepare for loads of giggles and laughter, haha. I will also get some adorable photographs of your beautiful baby having the most amazing fun.
