Nikki came to visit for his first birthday along with his mum, dad and sister. He had a lovely time at his cake smash, totally enjoying the fun of playing with the cake. He actually didn’t eat a whole lot of it (which isn’t all that unusual) but he really enjoyed the feeling of it as it squished in his hands. Of course this led to him being quite sticky by the end of the session but luckily the tin tub was on hand for a good clean up afterwards.
His sister however, was a bit older, and was much more keen on eating the cake so whilst he was splashing, she was ‘looking after’ the rest of the cake in a very diligent fashion. She wasn’t so keen on having her photo taken at first but then we discovered she would sit beautifully and smile with cake portions being the reward so everything went swimmingly after that. Food as a bribe / reward in the studio doesn’t usually work but in her case, it was a great trick to get her smiling!
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.
