A Cake Smash session is the perfect way to celebrate your little one turning one! I have to admit, when cake smash sessions first became popular in this country, I initially wondered whether they were crazy or brilliant. I then had so many clients asking me if I would do them that I caved and I am pleased to say i converted. I LOVE them!!
Turning one is so important and I aim to make the time you have with me fun and most of all memorable. I want to create a story that you can remember for the rest of your lives and treasure.
The session is split into four separate stages;
Clean Shots - this is the start of the story. You can choose from a range of outfits to dress your child in or you are willing to bring your own. You may have bought a special 'One' year old outfit for the occasion or simply have a favourite outfit that you love your child wearing. Either way, this is what we start with. Clean, simple shots before the mess begins.
ONE Props - before I bring in the cake, I then take a variety of photographs of your child, posed with O N E, or 1 wooden letters. Again there is no cake at this point but is a great way of having some shots that clearly show this important milestone.
Cake Smash - this is where the fun starts. I then bring in the cake and allow your child to eat, smash, play or throw the cake, whilst I snap away, capturing every moment. How much they choose to eat is entirely up to you. I will let you know when I have captured enough but the moment is yours to enjoy for however long you wish. Sometimes, even the messiest of babies become a little shy in front of the camera or they become overwhelmed, so parents beware, you may have to get stuck in and encourage them too. You may want to dress for mess!!
Splash Time - the best way to clean a baby covered in cake is in a bath tub. Not only does this make them clean but it's so much fun. I will provide your little one with a nice warm, bubble bath and they can splash away whilst getting clean of cake at the same time. All this is photographed too.
The best bit is that you don't have to worry about a thing. I take care of the Cake, pops, outfits, bath and cleaning the mess.
