Introducing Cake Smash: A baby photoshoot with a difference
Do you love watching your little one have lots of messy fun, but dread the mammoth clean-up afterwards? Well, our cake smash photoshoots might be the answer to your messy prayers and they’re a great way to mark a special occasion!
What’s included in a cake smash photoshoot?
When you book one of our cake smash photoshoots, you’ll get an hour-long photoshoot in our state-of-the-art studio next to Willows Activity Farm in St Albans, Hertfordshire. We’ll provide a yummy and beautifully decorated cake for your little one to smash AND we’ll take care of the clean up afterwards – you don’t have to lift a finger! Plus, you’ll get an hour long personalised cinematic viewing where you get to see the results of the photoshoot in one of our luxurious viewing rooms.
Why would I book a cake smash photoshoot?
We have lots of parents’ book cake smash photoshoots for birthday celebrations or special occasions, or to use as party invitations for their children’s special celebrations. They’re a great way to celebrate important milestones and capture the fun and playful side of your little one, giving you mementos you can treasure forever. We have a range of backdrops, props and toys to create beautiful scenes for your little one’s photoshoot.
Won’t my baby be a sticky mess at the end?
Yes! That’s the idea and it’s hilarious watching them get stuck in, either using their hands or a wooden spoon, or just diving right in. Not only is it great fun (for us and them!) a cake smash photoshoot is also a brilliant sensory experience and sometimes it can be a rare opportunity for truly messy play. Don’t worry though, we provide a nice warm bath for your little one to get cleaned up after they’ve had their fill of cake – this can also make for some beautiful photographs to capture you all together as they splash around.
Should I worry about giving my baby an entire cake to eat?
Don’t worry, we find most of the cake doesn’t get eaten – it’s really just intended for play. Often kids will try a little, but are more interested in getting their hands in it and yes, even their feet sometimes too…I mean it is called a cake smash after-all! There’s usually far too much laughter and silliness for any serious cake eating…and our photographers are certainly hungry afterwards!
