Cake Smash – two words that sound like serious fun!
There’s something really adorable about cake smash photos, you can’t help but smile seeing a baby squish and squash a beautifully decorated cake. The cake smash is traditionally done for the first birthday and the gorgeous images are used on the birthday invitations. However, there are no hard and fast rules, it can be applied to any age as long as the enthusiasm is their. As photographers we just love to shoot cake smash portraits, we all have an absolute ball and each baby is so different in their approach and reaction. In our cake smash session we simply sit the baby down in front of the cake and wait for the magic to happen before our lenses.
It doesn’t take long before the whole cake is demolished and our baby is beside themselves with giggles and proud smiles of accomplishment. To make it super easy for Mum and Dad we will provide the cake which can be colour co-ordinated to suit the gender and a free acrylic photo block with your favourite image. We recommend that you have the photo shoot just before the baby turns one so that you can put the photo block next to the birthday cake on the actual party / celebration day as a reminder of the beautiful moment when your little ones turns the big 1! Cake smash photography sessions have been extremely popular in the last year. Cake smashes were ranked one of the top “weird and wonderful” trends of 2014 on popular parenting website Netmums.
The first birthday is such a huge milestone for the whole family and the cake smash is the perfect way to capture this life event in a light hearted and fun way. So many parents pop their baby into the high chair with piece of cake and snap away, while this is a great idea we feel that giving your little one free range to step, sit and pick up the cake is the best option for getting the perfect pictures.
