Smash The Cake.... Lets get messy!
If your little one is approaching their first birthday, a cake smash session can be great fun! The shoot will last around 45 mins to an hour. I do the sitting in 4 stages. I firstly do some birthday inspired photos. 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 & some bubbles, so you can clean them off and so I can take some cute bath-time photos too, to complete your session. The whole sequence of events makes for an adorable batch of photos!
I provide a giant personalised cupcake from a professional baker for the shoot, which has your child's name on it. You can tell me what colour you would like the cake to be. 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! Bring your own outfits or I have a couple of pink tu tu's for the girls and some bow ties for the boys. Bring a towel and baby wipes for them for afterwards, a towel and old clothes 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!
