Liam has been coming to see me since he was just a few days old as a tiny, sleepy newborn to now when he is a great big one year old little man, celebrating his birthday with a cake smash. A lot of people add in the tub splash as well but Liam is not a water baby so we didn’t do that part – it’s totally up to you and your little one as to what you fancy doing, it’s a mix and match situation.
Liam has always been a bit of a reluctant model really, he’s quite a shy and retiring chap. So while he’s been happy to sit and pose at all of his sessions, he’s always been a bit stingy on the old smile front but what a change at this last session. After an initial period where he took some time to weigh up the situation, he was full of smiles – I like to think it’s because he has come to know me over the year but it might also have had something to do with the cake!
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.
