There’s a common perception that all babies would love to get messy with as much cake as possible but it’s not always true. In fact, those little ones that can’t wait to dive in and cover themselves in the sugary treat are definitely in the minority.
This little guy wasn’t that interested in the cake at all – it wasn’t that he was worried by it, but simply that he thought there might be more interesting things for him to do and he totally didn’t see the point of it. So we simply faked it up a bit. Actually when we had broken it up a bit and scattered some in front of him, he did actually get a little more into it but either way, his mum got great cake smash images. You don’t need total cake devastation in order to create fun images of their first birthday. Also, if they aren’t so keen on the cake, there’s a good chance that they will love splashing in the tub so the cake smash is only half the story!
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.
