This young man had just turned one year old and his parents had booked him a photo shoot including a cake smash and a tub splash to celebrate and commemorate the end of a crazy twelve months as a family.

His mum had been up late the night before making two identical cakes – one for his photo shoot and one for his party later that day – and they looked gorgeous with their blue and yellow butter icing.  Good squishy butter icing is key to a cake smash cake – shop bought cakes can have very hard icing as they have to be transported with getting smashed to pieces – whilst they still taste amazing the icing can be hard to squish and make a mess with which is a lot of the point of a cake smash photo shoot.

After he had had his fill of cake, it was on to the tub which his mum and dad teamed with my duck accessory set for a good splash and a clean up before it was time to get back and carry on the party at home.

A cake smash and tub splash photo shoot (you don’t have to do both if they don’t suit you) includes five digital images and costs £95.

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.
