Cake Smash and Splash
A cake smash photoshoot is a fantastically fun way to celebrate your child’s first birthday. My hugely popular 1st birthday photoshoots are my absolute favourite type of baby photo session to run. I love the fact that every session is different, purely because every child is different.
Some children love to get stuck in to the cake, breaking it up and tipping it on their heads, whilst others are very reluctant to get involved, but with a little bit of encouragement from me I can always get some beautiful first birthday photos for my clients.
I always take my time to interact with your child and am dedicated to getting smiles. I work with you before the session to ensure you get the most from your valued investment.
CAKE SMASH PHOTOSHOOT SESSIONS MAY INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
Cream backdrop, a giant white balloon and various props to choose from, including a vintage style car, wooden bowls, a miniature rustic style wooden bed, soft fluffy rugs and a little wooden chair
Wooden letters spelling out the word ‘ONE’
The cake – I tend to prefer a ‘naked’ iced vanilla cake with flowers or a wooden cake topper, or a giant cupcake, to keep it simple and all about baby rather than distracting decorations
A clean up bathtime session in a vintage style bath tub, complete with bubbles galore!
I provide a complete and professional service, so you can just roll up on the day.
I supply the cake and vintage/classic style outfits and props, plus of course, the post-session bath-tub clean up! You're welcome to bring your own outfits and props if you prefer.
All you need to do is turn up to my beautiful photography studio near Andover, be prepared to get involved (and messy!) and watch the fun unfold before your eyes!
I will take some timeless portraits before moving on to the birthday cake smash itself and finishing with photos of your little one splashing in a vintage tin bath with lots of bubbles, which means you get to take a nice clean baby home with you!
The session will take approximately one hour and I recommend that you book your photoshoot for when your baby is 11 months old, so you have your 1st birthday photos in time for your little one’s big day. This also means that they are likely to be less mobile and disappear off set!
"A huge thank you to Helen for the beautiful cake smash photos for our son’s upcoming 1st birthday. We had such a fun morning; Helen’s studio was lovely and it was a very relaxed experience. The variety of props and outfits we could choose from were so sweet and fitted what we wanted perfectly. Would highly recommend!”
