Cake Smash Sessions

I can't think of a  better way to celebrate your child's birthday than smashing a big cake. 
The actual cake smash shoots are child led, this means we go at your children's pace. If they are getting bored we move on.  If they want a break, we take a break.  

I start with taking photographs of your child while still clean, so we get some beautiful shots in his/her lovely outfit. 

After that I bring a cake and encourage child to dig in. Some kids go all in, and some try to be a bit more civilized ;) Some kids prefer to eat with a spoon, some eat straight with their mouth. All options are fun to watch and capture. They already show their little personalities. 

Next stage is bath time, yes in the studio! They can have a good splash and get clean. I offer milk baths with fresh flowers, or tasty baths with fruit: strawberries, oranges, grapefruits and lemons. 

I can order a cake matching your child's cake smash theme from a local bakery for additional £25 -£40, or you can bring your own birthday cake.

I always advise parents to take some spare clothes for themselves as kids at this age are very mobile and interested in everything which surrounds them, so they tend to run away from the set. Parents usually help me with keeping them in place and supervising while they are in the water. 

Cake smash sessions can be booked for kids all ages, but the most popular ones are for 1st, 2nd and 3rd birthday.
