SMASH THE CAKE & SPLASH
In your baby’s first year of life, it’s amazing how much they grow and change. Their first birthday is a milestone in their little lives. The official end of your childhood and entering a new chapter – childhood! It is also a beautiful time as a parent to reflect on how far you’ve been together over the past year. I offer first birthday baby photography sessions to celebrate this special milestone.
Check out our Cake Smash gallery below for some inspiration! or call us with your crazy ideas – we love a challenge.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What order of images do you take in a 1st Birthday Photography Session?
During the first birthday sessions, I take several pictures, including: baby on my own, with 1 or 2 changes of clothes, pictures of parents, pictures of siblings (if applicable), pictures of the family, a cake break (or cake break) watermelon or fruit, if you prefer) a healthier option) and a bubble bath in my mini bath to finish and clean.
Where do sessions place?
All of my Smash The cake sessions take place in my photo studio. In the studio, I have a variety of accessories, fabrics and clothes of international origin for your baby to choose and a scenario specially set up for your baby’s session, in a thematic way and super decorated with balloons, containers, panels, flowers or as you wish . You can also bring special items (such as a family heirloom) that you would like to include in your baby’s photographs.
Do you provide the cake?
Due to allergy problems, I ask my clients to buy their own cakes for their crushing. I work with 2 Brazilian suppliers from Dublin, highly recommended professionals who provide delicious cakes, well decorated and with a minimal amount of sugar.
How long do your baby photography sessions for the 1st birthday take?
As any parent knows, babies have a very short attention span. My first birthday photo shoot usually lasts about 45 to 60 minutes and can vary for each child. Right now, my goal is to get the most images and the most variety in the images in your gallery before babies decide they’ve had enough.
Do your 1st Birthday Sessions include images of my other children/partner/even?
Yes! All of my baby photography sessions include pictures of your immediate family – this includes other children and both parents. Grandparents can also be included upon request
Cake Smash Photography is the best creative and fun way to capture the milestone of your little one who is transforming one. The footage is fully customizable and pre-designed to create the perfect style for your home and your personalities. We can help you with all the details, including the decoration of your cake, the theme, the color scheme, the appearance of the scenery and what your child will use.
There are two options for organizing your cake:
1) 10 to 11 months, so you have your artwork back in time for your child’s birthday party. You can also use the images for the invitations. Definitely a much more popular option.
2) On their birthday! The cake-breaking session can be a special birthday gift and a morning with the family. If you have a specific date, you MUST book a few weeks in advance!
