This is baby Lucas who is rapidly turning from a baby into a little boy – pictured here as he comes up to his first birthday. When he first visited the studio, he was very tiny – just a few days old in fact for his newborn photo shoot. All my newborn photography families also receive free membership to my Joey Club baby photography club and so he has been back to see me three times since. The first time was at four months old, then at eight months and finally for the most fun session of all – his first birthday photo shoot.
We started the session with some general portrait photos and incorporating one very important lion toy that has been at all of his sessions (it’s a lovely idea to bring along one toy to all your sessions so you can see how your little one has changed alongside it) and then moved on to the very important business of smashing his birthday cake. After all that sticky fun, we then got into the tub full of warm bubbly water to create some more great images plus get rid of all that cake! Here, one of Lucas’ other regular visitors to the studio really came into his own – the giant duck. I have one but the other one belongs to him and has also been along to all his sessions but I’m pretty sure that this was his favourite!
A ‘Smash and Splash’ session is available as part of your Joey Club membership or you can book it as a stand alone session. It includes access to all my props, accessories and backdrops as well as your five favourite digital images to download, print and share as much as you’d like and costs £95. All you need to bring with you is a one year old, a cake, some bubble bath and a towel.
Cake Smash & Tub Splash Photo Shoots
A cake smash and tub splash photo shoot is the perfect way to celebrate and commemorate that extra special first birthday. We start with a clean shoot and mum, dad and siblings are welcome to get involved here as well for family pictures if you’d like to. Then it’s time to get out the cake for some smashing fun! After that, it’s time to fill your choice of tub with warm and bubbly water for more great pictures and a good old icing removal clean up. Each session includes your three favourite digital images (chosen from your online gallery, there’s no sales session) and costs £95.
Cake smash and tub splash sessions are also included in my baby photography club – the Joey Club so if you have a little one (under four months) take a look at that to find out more about capturing your first year together.
