Cake Smash Session

Cake Smash and First Birthday session is a great way to celebrate you child’s first birthday. It’s fun and messy and kids love them.

About the session
The session starts with some regular portraits of your child to give them a chance to get comfortable in front of the camera and also to get familiar with myself and their surroundings before we bring the cake out and the smash starts.
Each session is individually styled based on your choice of colour scheme. The cake is handmade by a fantastic local bakery. Please, let us know if your child has any food allergies.
The cake smash session lasts approximately 1-1.5 hour
Although most kids will just get right into it, others might need some assistance with the smashing and sometimes cake smash goes sideways, but that’s OK. The most important thing is to make sure your child is happy. If we don’t get any cake smash photos, you will still be left with some great non-messy photos from the beginning of the session, so no need to worry.

 

What to bring?

  • Extra outfits. We recommend bringing a couple of extra outfits for your little one: for the first part of the session so we can get some non-messy portraits and for the cake smash part, unless you prefer us to supply the cake smash outfit. It will be discussed during our consultations.
  • Baby wipes and towel. Cake smash could be very messy, so make sure you have a baby wipes and towels to clean your little model after the cake smash. It is also a good idea to bring extra outfit for yourself
  • Drink/snacks, your child’s favorite toys. Bringing your child’s favorite toys will help with comforting and distracting them at the beginning of the session

When and how to book
We advise to book your cake smash session at least one month before you want your session to take place. It will give us enough time to arrange everything (from consultations to ordering cake, etc.)
The best way to book your session is to email us at studio@marramphotography.com with the following information:

  • name of your child, age.
  • preferable date of the session. We can not guarantee that the session will take place on the date selected. If your preferable date is not available we will try to find alternative one. Your date will be secured after you pay a £30 deposit. Try to book the time of your session, so that your baby has eaten and had a nap just before the session.
  • your phone number, so we contact you to discuss the details.
