This is Phia.  We were meant to meet for her newborn photos but that didn’t quite go as planned and so it was my delayed pleasure to meet her for her first birthday photos – a cake smash and tub splash photo shoot at my studio in Crawley Down.

She looked good enough to eat in her special birthday dress that actually matched her cake perfectly and her mum and dad had brought along a good selection of accessories to complete the lo0k – well a well dressed lady should always pay attention to her accessories!  Actually the cake smash was really funny as she was too much of a lady to dive in and get too messy but, about half way through the session,  she did discover that the cake slid marvelously on my floor and so a cake smash became a cake push session!  We got great photos anyway and it certainly did make me laugh.  Her big sister joined in the fun for some clean portraits as well and she was such a natural model that she had  little section of photos all on her own – just couldn’t resist capturing that pretty face.   Then we finished up in the tin tub for a clean up and some extra photos and to complete a set of images that marks a brilliant first birthday.

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.
