Smash The Cake.... Lets get messy!
If your little one is approaching their first birthday, a cake smash session can be great fun!
What is a cake smash session
Your 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), or even you the parents are helping them make 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. Just tell me what colour cupcake you would like - if you would like a themed cake, feel free to bring your own.
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.
