Bognor's specialist maternity, newborn, sitter and cake smash photographer

Cake smash photoshoot West Sussex

Recording the changes in your families lives.

Now your baby is coming up for one! Where did that time go?  Likely it went past in what seems lie the blink of an eye! With all those precious moments and firsts for everything they do just flying past!

Now is the time to arrange a photoshoot to wrap up the first year of their life.  This type of photoshoot is called a cake smash and splash, although if preferred there are other options to smashing a cake!  This is a one hour photoshoot which encapsulates the fun that one year olds like to have, by getting messy with the cake and finishing up with a splash in the little bath tub with some bubbles. 

This is fast becoming one of my most popular shoots, and is a perfect end to the progress through from maternity photoshoot, newborn photoshoot, sitter photoshoot and then Cake smash.

Cake Smash photoshoot – £65 for one hour without cake, or cake can be supplied from a local baker at an extra cost.

Cake smash photoshoots make a really fun way to celebrate your child’s first (or second) Birthday.  The photoshoot consists of 20 minutes plain (clean!) studio time, then 20 minutes of cake smash madness, followed by 20 minutes tub time.

When is best to book?

You can book this type of photoshoot whenever you like, however do try and contact me in plenty of time if you would like to book your child in on their actual Birthday to avoid disappointment.

When is best for the photoshoot?

You can have this photoshoot at any time, but most people choose a date close to, or on the child’s first or second Birthday.

What do I wear for my photoshoot?

For the first part of the photoshoot the child can wear clothing of your choice.  For the cake smash part we can either leave on the same clothes (as long as you are happy for them to get very dirty!) or alternatively you can bring them a change of clothes or they can just wear a nappy (or nappy cover). The last section baby will be in the tub having a splash and getting clean. I do advise that ALL family members bring a change of clothes to this photoshoot as parents can also get a little covered in cake and icing!

Can I bring my partner?

Of course! I LOVE it when partners and siblings get involved in  photoshoots.  If you wish to have any family shots taken, this will happen in the first 20 minutes of the photoshoot, but will use up some of that 20 minutes so there will be fewer photos of just the Birthday child alone.
