Cake Smash and Splash sessions are my most popular booked studio session. These sessions are perfect for celebrating the 1st birthday milestone, but can also be done for a 2nd birthday too, especially if you missed out on a 1st birthday session. These sessions can be done a month or so before a birthday, as close to the birthday or if I am available, actually on their birthday! It's totally up to you! I just ask to make sure you book at least 4-6 weeks in advance so I can prep for your cake smash and splash shoot!
Upon arriving at my studio for your cake smash session you will be given an outfit (unless discussed, if you are wanting to bring your own) for you to get little one changed. He/she will then have a mini portrait session which is a great way to get little one used to all the fuss, the lights and get to know me a little bit. This will last about 5-10 minutes, because I don't want to ' bore ' little one before we even get started properly with the session, as after all, it is all about that cake!
I always tell my clients it might go two ways with the cake, they'll either love it, and dive straight in and the cake smash part of the session may last about 10-15 minutes before they have had enough, which is fine providing I have enough images we can move on to the splash... Or they will be a little curious and take a little bit more time to warm up to it and get the smash done. I always have a little cake smash wooden spoon to hand for the little ones who don't like getting their little hands sticky! (I also advise parents not to wear their best clothes as you will also get caked!)
After this part of the session, out comes the bath tub! This is also lots of fun and the studio can get very wet. You are welcome to bring some soap to clean down your baby whilst in the tub, a few bath toys and don't forget to bring a towel!
