What is a Cake Smash Photoshoot?
A parent loves to see their child having fun. This is precisely what cake smash and splash sessions are about, parents like to watch their baby explore and taste the cake which always results in fun, creative and sometimes messy photos.
The Cake Smash Photo Shoot is a whole new way to celebrate the first birthday or some of the highlights in our kids’ lives. Smash cake sessions are usually held around the baby’s first birthday. Most parents choose the week before the birthday parties or shortly before, but some folks would use the pictures from the session for birthday party invitations. This means that the session will take place even a month before the actual birthday date.
The actual Cake Smash shoots are children led, which means that we will keep up with your children. When they get bored, we move on. If they want to relax, we will take a break. Because of these shoots, sometimes it may take more time. Sometimes we sit down and drink a cup of tea while your child settles in and feels comfortable in the studio.
The cake smash sessions are supposed to be messy, and your child should have fun! Some people are distracted by the idea that the child is smashing the cake, but to be honest, let them be messy and have fun, but you can do it in a way that appeases your need to have things not completely destroyed.
