9 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR CAKE SMASH PHOTOSHOOT
1. WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK A CAKE SMASH PHOTOSHOOT SESSION?
The best time to book your baby's cake smash photoshoot will be at least 6 weeks before your baby's first birthday as we get booked up really quickly.
2. HOW LONG DOES A CAKE SMASH PHOTOSHOOT TAKE?
The entire cake smash session will take up to 1.5hrs at my home studio.
3. WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE CAKE SMASH SESSION?
Your session will start with the cake on its own while you get ready. Then we take portraits of baby on their own and then portrait with the cake. We will then move on to the cake smashing photoshoot section of the shoot; and lastly your baby gets to have fun splashing in a bubble bath.
4. DO I NEED TO PROVIDE ANYTHING?
With our cake smash sessions we provide everything (birthday cake, decorations, outfit and props) you need. However you can provide your own outfit if you have a special outfit that you would like your baby to wear. Please also remember to bring a bath towel and baby's favourite bathtime bubble. It is also advisable that you have milk/water for your baby to eat and drink during the session if required. Please bring you baby's favourite snack to the session so that we can hide at the back of the cake to attract your baby's interest.
5. WHAT IF MY BABY HAS NEVER HAD CAKE BEFORE?
It is important that you let your baby taste and play with some cake and icing before their cake smash session so that they are use to the whole idea and we can have fun on the day. If possible please buy a cheap birthday cake from the supermarket and let your baby play with it.
