This week I thought I would put my Cake Smash Sessions in the spotlight! Cake Smashes are one of my favourite photography sessions - they are such good fun and are defiantly an experience you won’t forget. The photoshoot is dedicated to your baby’s first Birthday!
I will come to you with my whole kit and wardrobe. You can get as messy as you like. My Cake Smashes are tailored to your little one’s personality, favourite themes, colours, foods etc. The session is full of exploration, clapping, singing ‘Happy Birthday’, dancing and of course, tasting the yummy cake. It’s not just a photoshoot but a play session with balloons and exploring.
Firstly, we’ll arrange a meet up, plan and create a mood board. There are a lot of places to get inspiration for your cake smash. Pinterest is a great place, check out all the colourful session or beautiful cakes. Instagram has some fab concepts and prop ideas. My suggestion is make sure everything colour matches and not make your photoshoot too busy. The main element of the photoshoot is your child and the cake.
The decorations are provided by me and included in the price for a stress free session. I will make and draw up some ideas first based off the images you have seen on the internet. The aim is the create an unique and special photoshoot just for you. I will cut out, stick together and paint your perfect background. When it comes to props, balloons, pom-poms, buntings and decorative fans - I will hunt out the best and set up a dreamy wonderland for your baby. If you wanted something natural, we can use a park or your garden with a picnic set -up.
THE OUTFITS - When you comes to outfits, the advise I give - less is better. Nothing is prettier then a pink tut tut and belly! For the boys, shorts and braces look super cute. If you are going for a character theme you can also try animal rompers and onsies - just bare in mind these will be covered in cake. Then you can choose crowns or hats? For a boy you might wanna try a bow-tie and leggings! Pearls for a girl with a sweet flowery headband. Make a big statement or go natural!
The Photoshoot is baby lead! What does that mean?
Sometimes children hate cake and mess, so we help out in stages. We are telling a story about the Cake Smash from start to finish. I try not to make these sessions too long, too much sugar can make your little one sick - so we will decide how much your baby eats and help make the mess. But It doesn’t take away from the experience, your baby can still play, squeeze and throw cake.
Gift Vouchers are available for this session, just give me a message to plan your wonderful birthday surprise! xxx
