I’ve been doing cake smash and tub splash photo shoots for six or seven years now so it’s not like they are a new session for me. However, 2019, has just seen a surge in the amount of families coming to visit to celebrate that important first birthday with one of these fun sessions.
They are always such a giggle even though they can be a bit unpredictable – you can never tell in advance whether a baby will refuse point blank to touch the cake or get stuck in and eating like there’s no tomorrow. It’s kind of that aspect that makes them fun. I’ve done so many of them now, I’m kind of prepared for any eventuality and getting a little expert in creating fun images whatever the circumstances – a lot of babies are quite shy of the cake but the good news is that you don’t need total cake devastation in order to get fun photos! When we’re finished with the cake then it’s time to get into the tub for a clean up and more fun before it’s time to go home. This year has seen some popular additions to my props and accessories including the vintage florals which I think might be equaling the giant ducks in popularity now.
So thanks to you if you visited to celebrate this year – thanks to all the cake eaters, sticky fingers, bubble catchers and tub splashers who prefer more water out of the tub than in it. You’ve made my 2019 a landmark party year!
