Ariana has been coming to visit my East Grinstead studio every few months for her first year and I’m really going to miss her after her final Joey Club baby photography club session. Still, I like to think we went out with a bang with a great cake smash and tub splash photo shoot.
We started the year with a newborn session and then we’ve met at her four, eight and twelve month anniversaries and every time she’s been a star in the studio. I think this might be my favourite session – oh hang on though, there was the one with the Christmas outfits and then there was the one with the bunny outfit (complete with carrots), OK, I can’t pick a favourite…
We started with a couple of different dresses – the extremely pretty pink one is earmarked for her birthday party – and then got into the serious business of smashing the cake. Then a good clean up in the tub filled with warm water and accompanied by ducks of various sizes and some bubble catching. A perfect way to celebrate her first year and for me to say ‘au revoir’ for now.
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.
