I LOVE working with kiddies and I love these cake smash sessions!
Time really flies when you have a little one in your life and we need to capture and cherish the memories before they are gone.
This session does exactly that! We celebrate your toddler’s very 1st birthday with a cake smash either in-studio or outdoors in a pretty setting.
What is included?
A MKP Cake Smash session includes a delicious naked or cream cake, to make LOTS of mess! 🙂 basic props (balloons & bunting) and a warm bubble bath after the smash to clean away all the cake (for outdoor sessions only if weather permits).
What should my child wear?
Try to let your toddler wear something that he/she can make a mess in (sometimes the coloured icing stains garments). A nappy only with a pretty frilly bottom for girls or cute shorts for boys works well.
Depending on the theme we choose, you can also accressorise with a tutu & headband for girls and tie & suspenders for boys.
Can I include my other children & us?
Yes I always encourage including other siblings for a few shots as well you, mommy & daddy. NO EXTENDED FAMILY ALLOWED UNLESS ARRANGED.
What else must I bring along to the session?
We are going to have a SMASHING time so please bring along a clean, dry change of clothes for little one for after the session. Sometimes during the session a few encouraging cuddles are needed from mom & dad so if you are planning to got out after the session please bring a change of clothes for mom & dad as well.
A towel for after the bath will also come in handy 🙂
What is the best time to book a session?
Studio sessions can be booked early morning and afternoon. Outdoor session preferably in the late afternoon but ALWAYS AFTER nap-time. Choose a time about half an hour after nap-time to prevent puffy eyes and ensure our toddler is happy and playful.
Please note that not all toddlers will “Smash” the cake. We never force them either so the shoot will run according to their pace and we guide them where necessary. If we are running out of time, I will advise you of this and you can then decide if you wish to continue with the smashing shoot or start with the bubble bath shoot.
If you toddler is totally not into the whole cake-smash thing, we can discuss booking a Turning One session which can be done in-studio, their pretty bedroom or outdoors. We include some of their favorite items and toys and just capture them doing their thing. Contact me to discuss options.
