Cake Smash photo-shoots. People either love them or hate them but they are a modern day rite-of-passage for many babies celebrating their first birthday. I decided to run a model call a couple of months ago and I chose two children to come and celebrate their birthday with me, by smashing up a cake. It was actually a lot of fun. Not much cake was eaten, mostly just played with. Those little hands loved exploring the feel of the cake, fruit and icing as it was squished through their fingers. To finish off the sessions I popped some water into a tub and photographed the babies as they happily splashed their way to cleanliness.
If you have a baby coming up to their first birthday, why not book a cake smash photography session? It takes approximately 45 minutes. We start off with a few photos of baby all dressed up on set, then out comes the cake and it gets destroyed before a good fun splash about in the tub to clean up. Following the session you can select three photographs you would like or choose to purchase extras. The session fee including three images is currently available to be booked at the special introductory price of £150.
Here are some of my favourite photos from the model calls I did and a few other splash-time photos i’ve done with clients. Look out on my blog for more cake smashes coming soon.
