Your tiny baby has nearly been here for an entire year! How did that happen?!
What better way to celebrate the fastest year ever, than a cake smash? It’s pretty simple. Baby + cake = mess. Followed by baby + bath = slightly less mess!
Your cake smash can be whatever theme, colour scheme or tell any story you would like. I think I’ve nearly done every colour scheme, and the themes never cease to amaze me with how creative we can get!
We start with some portraits of your little one in your chosen outfit, be it what they’re about to cover in cake, or a different set of clothes. Then, bring on the cake! You can provide your own cake, if you are doing so I suggest checking with your local bakers, or even supermarkets sometimes have some cute designs! I also have a cake maker who supplies cakes directly to the studio for an additional cost.
After your little one has thoroughly destroyed their first ever birthday cake, we chuck them in a tin bath tub to clean up, and get some cute photos of them having a splash about too!
Just like with my newborn sessions, the most important thing to me is making sure your little one is happy. I highly recommend you come to your cake smash appointment early, especially if you have not been to the studio before. This gives your little one chance to explore the studio, climb on some stuff they shouldn’t, try and escape and hopefully warm up to me enough that we can get lots of smiles without having to involve parents too much! (Those cakes do get really messy…!)
If you’re not sure on a theme or colour scheme, I can advise. I regularly offer discounts or special offers for themes that are a bit more different, as I love doing more “alternative” cake smashes! Alternatively you may wish to incorporate your little ones favourite book, movie or tv show. My little boy had a batman theme cake smash for his first birthday, and we also did one for his second birthday (mostly to celebrate outgrowing a dairy intolerance – yay real cake!) that was Pokemon themed!
