birthday celebration cake smashes- £60

During the photoshoot session we like to take images of the 1 year olds before the mess in nice clothes, or something that reflects their personality or yours (a little Mini me).  We have a few props we can also use, but please feel free to bring your own (please see our What to Bring to the Sessions’ below).  After the nice clean clothes, we then bring in the cake/paint/mess.  After the mess, we put the little one into the small bath tub, take a few more photos, then we take them out and wrap them in a one of their towels and if there is time within the session we can take photos of this and them snuggled with parents. We love to style the photo sessions in fun and new ways. If there is anything specific you would like during the shoot, certain shots, backgrounds, props, that you may have seen in my work or other photographers, please let me know and we can see if it is possible. We do ask you to provide your own cake and please ensure as best as possible your child does not have any allergies. We can provide one for you at an additional cost of £25. Please note, if we provide the cake there are a few health and safety issues we need to address.

What to Bring to the Sessions

The Cake: We ask you to provide the cake if you are doing a cake smash, it can be homemade, shop bought, the gooier the better, with lots of butter icing so little ones can smear it all over.  Please consider your little one however and ensure they won’t be upset by the mess and sticky fingers. ***IMPORTANT*** Please also ensure where possible your child does not have any allergies to any of the ingredient in the cake.

Water Bottle: 1 Year Olds are not used to eating so much sugar in one go, so bring some water or juice for them to help wash it down and give them a little break.

Clothes: We ask parents to bring clothes suitable for photoshoot before the mess, during the mess and after.  Sometimes we just use nappies, but you may like to consider nappy covers, shorts, swimming costume, whatever you don’t mind your little one getting messy.  We do have a pink Tutu available if you would like to use that.  Please bring some clothes for your little one to change into at the end of the session, baby grows or pyjamas work quite well, but please be aware your little one may still be a little messy.

Parent’s Messy Clothes: Yes, during the session you might have to get involved by continuously popping your child back in the middle of the shot, if they are covered in mess, you might want to bring some messy clothes or an apron for yourself. :-)

Towel: We also ask you to bring a nice towel that can be photographed after the bath tub. We have towels that we usually just use to mop up the mess, so if you have your own nice snuggly one, that will make nice photos. 

Props: Please bring any special/sentimental teddies, blankets, props such as wooden initials or name plagues that we could use during the session.  Books are also lovely to use at the end of the session if your little one will sit on your knee after the bath.  Photos of when they were born or as a newborn can also be a cute idea.

Essentials: Obviously, please also bring the usual essentials for your little one, nappies, water, milk, snacks which may give them a bit of a boost if needed, but please try not to show your little one any treats during the shoot as they can become fixated on the treat and chewing during photos doesn’t make great photos, we will try lots of other options before the need for treats.
