This little lady came to visit my studio in East Grinstead to celebrate her first birthday. Her big brother had previously had cake smash and tub splash photos taken for his birthday but those had been done abroad so his mum got in touch with me and asked if I could mirror the style and warmth of tone of his photos so they’d still look great hanging together on the wall.
This was a first for me, as she was the first birthday girl or boy to bring along the trendiest of all cakes – the semi-naked cake! Topped with real flowers this really was a stunning addition to the cake smash along with the birthday girl’s outfit as well. This lovely floral romper featured a gorgeous v-back so we made sure we captured this view in some photos as well – well when you’re looking good, you deserve to be captured from all angles. There was even a delicate peach flower crown to complete the look and her clever and coordinated mum brought along her own bunting to perfectly match the colour scheme. All in all, this was a well planned and beautifully thought out cake smash and tub splash and the photos in the end blended really well with her sibling’s images – despite them being taken in a whole other country.
If you have an idea for a design or colour scheme, then you should always feel free to get in touch to see if I already have anything in my collection that you can borrow to complete your look and feel free to bring along your own items to include to really personalise your session.
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.
