Cake smash tradition came to us from United States. At age of one year old, little ones have unpredictable reactions when they touch and interact with things. With cake being the one they touch and play with it like children of older ages never will. So capturing these precious expressions are quite important and those images become amazing keepsake for the years to come.
In the latest fashion cake smashes have grown to become “Smash and Splash” sessions and now include the bath time after the messy play, followed by cute photos in the towel. Babies usually love splashing in our beautiful Victorian style bathtub, so we capture lots of gorgeous moments.
We now offer so called “themed” Smash’n’Splash. There are 12 ready made to choose from, and if you like a theme which is not on a list, please let Maryna know and she will get it designed for you!
Together with the theme setting our cake smashes include,
- Giant cupcake style cake to match the theme
- Custom made outfit, props and helium balloons!
During the session we will take pre-smash photos (or photos with siblings or parents if needed), baby eating and interacting with the cake, Splash (baby in the bath photos) and baby in the towel photos. All parts of the session are dependant on your baby’s their mood on the day and if they would like to interact. There is no guarantee with anything, but Maryna will do her best to capture some beautiful moments to treasure for years to come.
Cake Smash’n’ Splash is an experience not to be missed, so feel free to invite grandparents to join the fun.
Unfortunatelly gluten/dairy/egg free cakes cannot be provided at this stage.
After the session we schedule the date (usually after 7-10 days) for you to be invited to the studio to view your edited images in person, that’s when you may decide which package you’d like to purchase.
Because Maryna needs to order the cake and arrange the props for your session, there is £65 non-refundable retainer payable at the time of the booking, to secure your time slot, £35 of which however will be taken off your chosen package value.
To simplify pricing, there are three packages to choose from.
