These sessions mark your baby’s first birthday milestone and I just love to help you celebrate this important birthday with a fun photo shoot. I have two options – a longer shoot to include some lovely photos with the rest of the family and some classic portraits first or a simple Smash and Splash session.
First birthday sessions normally begin with some family photos with mum and dad to get your little boy or girl comfortable in the studio, we then move on to some lovely photos in any special outfits mum or dad may have brought for them to wear, and we normally end the session by bringing on the cake and getting very messy in the process! I also have a little tub we can use for a nice bubble bath at the end if babies are willing! I am happy to take on any ideas you may have in the styling of your little one’s cake smash shoot, I have a large number of props and set ups I can use and I can either supply the cake or you are welcome to bring yours along.
Alternatively if you think baby will be keen to crack on with the cake first we can do the Smash and Splash session which just involves the cake smash and the clean up in the tub afterwards.
These sessions are normally the last sessions from my Baby’s First Year Plan but can also be bought standalone, and can take place any time between 12-16 months, preferably when baby is a little but not too mobile! I have however done cake smashes for two year olds and three year olds but these are styled more as tea parties.
You can find pricing for the packages that I offer here – Cake Smash Pricing 2018. I provide the cakes from a local cake maker to match your colours or theme and you can normally take some of it home for your enjoyment after the shoot.
