1. Evie Cake Smash

    A Cake smash is a fantastic fun way to mark your babies first birthday. The session is approx an hour and is so crazy you won’t even notice the time fly by. Firstly, I like to begin with a few portraits of baby before I bring the cake out. So it’s good to prepare a little outfit for this. Once the cake is out, we will have baby in position and pop it in front of them. Then I just document what happens. All babies react differently, mainly shocked and worried at the consequences if they eat it (laughs)! Some dive right in head first, some tear up, some knock it over, but that doesn’t matter. All good fun.

    Once they have destroyed it in some way, and hopefully head to toe in buttercream, it’s now bath time. This is so handy for taking baby home clean. It most likely will guarantee they sleep on the way home too! I like to use a big tub with ducks and lots of bubbles. If your interested in booking a session make sure you pack babies shampoo, towels and extra nappy for this! You will also need to wear old clothes yourself as it can get messy helping baby smash it up. If you wish to bring a partner or family member that’s also fine, the more hands the better. If you are bringing small children, siblings or otherwise, please bring something to occupy them.

    If you require parking just let me know ahead of time, we have a space in our car-park for you. If baby has food allergies let us know ahead of time.

    I provide the cake, the set and balloons. The price for this is £85 including CD. I have some outfits but not all colours. This will be discussed ahead of your session so please let me know your theme. You may be required to provide the outfit, so good idea to get booked in well in advance of babies birthday.

    Images will be uploaded to your private  gallery just after your shoot and will remain online. Your CD will be available for collection a few days after. Please disclose if you do not wish for your images to be used online or in-store for promotional purposes.

    Here’s my most recent baby smash…introducing Evie. I just love the bonnet. She was such a sweet little girl. Happy Birthday Evie
