Super fun cake smash photography sessions are an ideal way to celebrate a baby’s 1st birthday in Birmingham. We play party music and provide bunting and balloons. Just imagine your adorable baby having their way with a birthday cake – and getting photos to document it all! Icing-covered faces and hands, giggles, smiles, and costumes make these images unforgettable and provide a unique opportunity to capture your baby’s curiosity and personality at a young age.
All the best moments will be caught on camera, so parents can just sit back, relax and join in with all the giggling! When should you do a cake smash? Cake smash photos are typically done to celebrate a child’s first birthday, but they need to be able to sit up independently. These photos could be the perfect way to end their birthday bash, or captured in advance of the big day ready to display at the party!
After 8 years of shooting cake smash sessions in Birmingham, I have learnt more icing on a decorated cake adds so much more to the photos, giant cupcake are a favorite babies can have sticky icing on their hands and face which looks great.
The remainder of the cake smash and splash session includes a lovely bubble bath splash in my tin bath to clean up. This gives me the opportunity to capture some lovely post-smash photographs to finish off the session and have rubber ducks and a shower cap to add to the photos.
Some people choose to go for a milk bath with strawberries and flowers.
Cake smashes are suitable for children’s 1st birthday. Cake smash packages include a variety of decorations in a colour scheme. You are to provide your own cake.
Can include some family and sibling images at the beginning of the session also offer a selection of wall art canvases for you to purchase to remember.
The Shoot is £150 and includes 15 photos on a USB
The shoot takes place at my studio in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham.
We start off with the cake smash (the more buttercream the better –gets really messy!). Then onto a “splash in a tin bath” with lots of bubbles.
You will be able to view and choose your photos at the end of the shoot.
I provide standard balloons and bunting and props (you can bring helium balloons if you wish)
You are to provide your own outfit, your own cake for the smash, and a bubble bath & towel for the splash.
As well as providing Cake smashes in Birmingham, I also offer photography sessions for weddings, bump and baby, newborn photography, vintage baby shoots, birthday shoots, couple shoots, and family photoshoots.
