Cake Smash sessions have grown in popularity over the last two years. Although not everyone understands this trend, I personally think they are one of my favourite sessions to photograph. Your child has reached many important milestones during their first year, which is definitely a cause for celebration! A cake smash is a great way to celebrate and capture their developing personalities. It is hilarious, messy and heart warming!
I have to be honest with you, posing a one year old is not the easiest thing to do however, this photo session gives them complete freedom to be relaxed and to have fun. The sugar rush does tend to help with that too! The cake is not just part of the 1st birthday theme, it is a prop that grabs their attention and gets them exploring. It’s a new and exciting experience that they are sharing with you.
It’s not just fun for them either. You’re probably going to get covered in cake when your little one wants a hug however, seeing how they react to the cake and how they play with the props whilst getting extremely messy will melt your heart. It’s such a natural, exciting and unposed shoot. I really believe a cake smash session is not just about the photos, it’s an experience. It really is an opportunity to build memories that you will fondly look back on over the years.
What is included in a cake smash session?
The package includes use of my beautiful props which are colour co-ordinated with a beautiful cake. You advise me of the colour scheme you would like at the time of booking and I organise the rest. The session takes place in my studio in Thetford.
I work alongside the award winning Nadine’s Cake’s and Celebrations. A delicious cake is included in the session fee. It really doesn’t matter how much of the cake gets eaten, as long as everyone has heaps of fun!
