Smash The Cake.... Lets get messy!
If your little one is approaching their first birthday, a cake smash session can be great fun!
Choose a Giant Cup Cake or go Unicorn!
What is a cake smash session
Wether you choose normal or Unicorn, the shoot will last around 45 mins to an hour. I do the sitting in 4 stages. I firstly do some birthday inspired photos, in which your child will not get dirty. We then use props such as flour, eggs, a bowl and wooden spoon for example to make it took like your child or their older sibling(s) are making a cake! They can get messy with the prep - its great fun! Then we bring the cake out and your baby can smash it / eat it / bash it with the wooden spoon etc! Afterwards, I bring the bath-tub out and fill it with a little bit of warm water, so you can clean them off and so I can take some cute bath-time photos too, to complete your session (Modesty is ALWAYS preserved). The whole sequence of events makes for an adorable batch of photos!
We let them get very messy. I provide a giant personalised cupcake or the magical unicorn cake from a professional baker for the shoot, which has your child's name on it. For the cupcake option, you can tell me what colour you would like the cake to be.
Be prepared to get messy yourself!
Be warned, even if you don't join in (which you can), you may still end up covered in cake, when your baby decides he or she wants a cuddle! The whole family can join in, including siblings! Why don't you have a food fight? The more mess the better!
What should my baby wear during the session?
Your baby can rock three outfits during this shoot. One outfit for their birthday style photos, which won't get dirty, then one for their 'making' session, which will get dirty and one for their actual cake smash, which will also get dirty! You could even bring a cute bath-cap for the tub time pics at the end too. This shoot can look super cute, if baby wears a frilly tu-tu or a super cute pants and tie set for the messy bit! Bring your own outfits or I have a couple of pink tu tu's for the girls and some bow ties for the boys.
What should I bring with me?
Bring a towel and baby wipes for them for afterwards, a towel and old clothes, or clothes you don't mind getting dirty, for you because you may get covered in cake too! Warning: This type of shoot is NOT for the faint hearted! It is very messy! YOU will leave messy, your child will be covered in cake, even I will be covered in cake. Be prepared!
Preparing your baby for the session
It helps if your baby is used to getting dirty. Let them play with flour or icing in a safe environment to get them used to the feeling of having these substances on their hands and skin.
How much is the session?
The Sitting Fee - It is £40.00 for a giant cupcake and £55 for a Unicorn cake.
I charge this to cover the cost of the cake & cleaning materials etc, as well as my time. This price pays for the shoot only & one 5 by 7 print. After your shoot, I'll then edit a gallery of a minimum of 60 photos for you to order from. Extra prints start from £5.00
Photo Package options..... I have a standard price list you can order from once you have seen your images, but to make things easy, why not opt for a pre paid package? This does mean you pay for your images before you've seen them, but it takes the stress out of choosing your images AND you get a discount for buying in advance! Bargain!

This package has a total value of £240 - but you'll pay a discounted price of just £200, meaning you get the sitting fee totally off-scott free! What a total bargain! And you don't need to worry about how you are going to choose the photos you want - as you will get all 60! Fee payable upon booking.
