Granted, I’ve only just met Freddie but he does strike me as a little man who really knows how to party.  He was certainly living his best life when he came to visit the studio for a cake smash photo shoot to celebrate his first birthday.

He had a lovely cake in shades of blue with a grey topper which we coordinated with my grey damask background and blue bunting in order to tie it all together.  I always keep a stock of little wooden spoons just like the one you can see Freddie gleefully clutching in this photo.  Not all babies are fans of getting messy hands and sometimes they can struggle to engage with the cake or know quite what’s expected of them – they don’t get plonked down in front of a cake too often.  However, hand them a spoon and all of a sudden they can understand that they are meant to be eating. Not that Freddie need a whole lot of encouragement but they can be useful and fun to have in the photos in either case!

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.
