Cake smashes are all the craze right now, and I’m not surprised. They are fun, messy and a unique experience for babies! It’s one of the best ways to celebrate the first year of your cherub’s life and it is absolutely hilarious!
A cake smash is when you dress your little one up (optional), give them a big cake, sit back and watch them react! The best thing is that your little one will have their own reaction. Some babies poke the cake about a bit before digging in, whereas others dive straight in and smash it up! A licence to go wild and get as dirty as possible? Of course they’d love it!
Not everyone is fond of cake, even babies. I also offer alternative sessions to a cake smash that I offer are a Fruit Smash (fruit provided) or a Paint Splash (canvas and paint included). If you would prefer one of these, or even another alternative idea, please let me know as I am always up for trying new things!
The session begins with a few portrait pictures with the use of some props and some family pictures (parents and siblings). Once those are over, I take shots of the set up, your little one getting ready for the cake smash and the actual event itself! The session ends with bath time pictures, where they have a bit of fun with bubbles whilst getting cleaned up!
Your cake smash session will last between 60-90 minutes, depending on how fast your baby eats cake! You will need to provide the cake; if you would like a proper cake smash cake, please let me know and I can direct you to a few of the bakers that I have used for my previous cake smashes. You will also need to bring an outfit for the cake smash and a towel to dry your little one up with after their bath time pictures.
Please make sure that they have had their nap and meal before you bring them to their session. Please bring plenty of water/milk/juice, along with any snacks as your little one will get thirsty and peckish during the session.
Parents beware! There is a 99% change that you will get very dirty, too!
