Cake Smash and Splash Packages

Cake Smash & Splash Photographer, York

Did someone say cake?

A Cake Smash and Splash photoshoot is a great alternative to celebrate your baby’s first birthday milestone, plus…there’s cake involved!

These fun Cake Smash and Splash photoshoots generally last between 60-90mins and take place in my studio in York. The package price includes the backdrop set up(s) complete with balloons or bunting, pompoms, cake stand and also the cake. If you have any allergies please let me know upon booking.

Package details

There are 3 steps to your baby’s Cake Smash and Splash session, let me take you through each;

Step 1: The pre-shoot

This part of the Cake Smash and Splash photoshoot is totally optional but a nice additional keepsake to add to your gallery.

We set up against a fine art style backdrop away from the cake smash set up to take a quick few photographs of your baby in their favourite outfit before presenting them with the cake. 

This is a nice opportunity for a photograph of you with them as well, which helps to ease them into their photoshoot, and also provides you with an up to date photograph of you as a family.

If your baby doesn’t particularly enjoy outfit changes, you could have their cake smash outfit underneath, or keep them in their cake smash outfit ready to go with just adding a tutu or hat.

Step 2: The Smash

The main event! Bring on the cake!

While you’re switching baby into their cake smash outfit, I sort the finishing touches for the Cake Smash and Splash background set up and fetch the cake ready for some smashing and smushing!

We generally allocate the longest time period for the cake smash as babies (usually) love playing with the cake, and of course eating it as well (they might even share if you’re lucky)!

Included in the standard cake smash set up is either bunting (with a few added balloons), or a balloon garland, and some paper pompoms, all keeping to your chosen colour scheme which we discuss prior to the day. 

The cake and cake stand are also provided. The cake is made specially by a local cake maker, and will be a giant cupcake style. Any other designs may incur a small extra charge.

Step 3: The Splashing

We end your cake smash and splash photoshoot with, you’ve guessed it, a splash in the tub; add some bubbles and rubber duckies and away we go!

Again, this part of the photoshoot is completely optional, but it’s great fun for your baby to have a splash in the bubbles (plus, if they’re totally covered in cake from the cake smash, it’s helpful to have a quick bath before getting them back into the car). There are also plenty of baby wipes available throughout as an alternative.

Please bring a snuggly towel with you and a spare outfit for when the cake smash and splash photoshoot is finished.
