PLANNING YOUR SESSION IN DETAIL
Plan your cake smash session here. Please fill in the questionnaire as detailed as possible.
Our session starts with the cake smash set up specially designed around your chosen theme using balloons, garlands & props to get a creative, fun back drop to capture your child first birthday. Once baby has smashed the cake we then add a bubble bath to the set up, this is a great way to get baby all clean for the next part of the session.
After the cake smash session we like to make sure you also have the opportunity to have non-birthday images, we take away all the decorations to capture a simple classic child portrait (this is were you can provide an outfit). Lastly, if you have chosen the Enhanced or Premium package, we do a mini family portrait to capture all the love and get the family portrait you would love for your memories.
We have put together some ideas to choose from.
PRINCESS, FLOWERS & BOHO
RAINBOW OR UNICORN
All of our cakes are made by @Blackangelcakes & @Bloombakesldn, we do all our cake smash sessions with very simple design that compliments the theme you have chosen. You have an option to have a semi naked, drip or florets with a topper and decoration. All of our cakes are butter cream cakes made with a vanilla sponge, please let us know if your child has any food allergies we need to be aware of.

WHAT TO EXPECT, STEP BY STEP
Cake smash sessions last for 60-90min, we start the session with the Cake smash. You arrive to see your chosen them all set up with the cake ready to be smashed. Once the cake has been eaten and cute images have been taken, we then add an optional little bath to the set up. In the bathe, we can take your baby having fun in the bubbles splashing and kicking, It also gives us a chance to clean baby up ready for the baby portrait next.
