Smash the Cake 1st Birthday Celebration Photoshoot ! A trend that has swept across from the good ole US of A and is getting popular over here.
With the start of the New Year we are now doing these as one off shoots or as the culmination to our very popular “Watch Them Grow” package.
We’re doing it a little differently though. Some photography companies will arrange the cake and give you a fee to include the cost of the cake. This is fine but some of these cakes can cost a lot of money… just to see them smashed up…OK, YES that is the point but not everyone will want that option.
We do not get involved in the cake side of things leaving it up to you to be as extravagant or as minimal with the cake as you please. We’ve seen Cake Smashes done with small cupcakes with LOTS of soft chocolate icing and cream all the way up to super massive cakes where you can hardly see the infant behind this giant baked behemoth! They all look great and they’re all individual stories to be told. This also keeps the cost of the shoot down to our regular fees – FREE if the child is on our Watch Them Grow Package or the same price as our standard portrait shoots if the Smash The Cake shoot is a one off.
We can do the shoot in our studio but for that extra homely feel we can do the shoot where you live (subject to travel costs if outside of our hometown of Bridgwater, Somerset). If you have wooden, tiled or vinyl flooring, a bare wall and enough space for your birthday boy or girl to get messy (and for us to set up some extra lighting if needs be) we are happy to come out to you.
Here’s Sonny! We’ve been taking photographs of him since he was a few days old. He is one of the many babies on our “Watch Them Grow” package. It has been amazing to see him grow into the little man he is! For the cake Sonny’s parents decided to get one large chocolate cake with a smaller cake sat on top! They then added their own decorations.
We’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
