Cake Smash Birthday Photoshoot
One of our most popular sessions are when your little people turn one year old. A milestone that is not only precious but one that is truly memorable and deserves to be treasured for many years to come and definitely memories to show your offspring when they get older. Plus, who doesn’t love cake.
What does it involve ?
Cake ! and plenty of it for them to get stuck into. First of all you need to contact us to make a suitable date & time. Some people like to do it on the actual birth date, we do our best to cater for this. If not we suggest booking in at least a week or two in advance of the actual Birthday incase you wish to have prints etc done which make great gifts for parents and Grandparents alike.
You will then visit us at our home studio here in Hartlepool or we can visit you at home to complete the session. The session usually lasts up to one hour, though it may last longer or even shorter, always making sure we capture moments to treasure.
Do we need to bring anything?
We ask you to bring your own cake to smash, ideally it will be one that is easily smashed, chocolate ones work well. As do big frosted cakes, you may want to coordinate the colours of the cake, ie pink frosting for a Girl.. It’s entirely up to you and you can ask us if your are in doubt.
Clothing wise, we advise you bring a spare set to travel home in as they will get messy. Part of the session will be without the cake wearing their party suit that you will bring them in. We can then change them into the Cake Smash outfit, which we can supply or you may have your own ready for the SMASH !
You may also want to bring some props with you or a favourite toy. This will help keep their attention, plus they can be used as part of the session to really help capture the moment for years to come. We do have props and toys available so don’t worry if you don’t bring any.
**New for 2018** – Zach in the Box
As we are family run business, we also have two kids of our own. Early this year our youngest turned one himself. To celebrate we decided to launch our new Birthday Photo Session – “Zach in Box”. Very similar to the standard cake smash, but with a twist. This has proved a hit on our Facebook page with a lot of bookings already for the year ahead. These are great for a Wall Canvas.
The above image is an example of what you will receive, this one is our little boy. It’s very unique and really captures the first birthday and will look great on a wall as a canvas. Along with this image, you will receive all 9 images separately fully edited as in the one below.
How much does it cost ?
- Cake Smash Standard – £85 which includes 10 digital images with printing rights and your own online gallery for download.
- Zach in the Box – £100 which includes the 9 image composite and all 9 individual images (10 in total) with printing rights and your own online gallery for download.
We can offer payment plans to help cover the cost as long as the full balance is paid in full on the day.
