Cake smash photography
My favourite portrait shoot has to be when we do a cake smash, we have a baker who bakes our special, easilly smashable cakes, very tasty by the way :)
Normally the parents bring a change of clothes, and we take some ”nice clean” shots first, this serves as an ice breaker as well. Profesional studio photography can be a daunting experience and children can be a little apprehensive at first, so we like to make them feel comfortable and at ease.
A cake smash should be messy and fun, and its great to see the kids reaction when they realise what they can do. I do believe parents get as much fun out of it as the kids and im always excited to produce some cracking shots, so the messier the better. Just recently cake smash photography sessions have become very popular, and i hope they continue to be so, because they are great fun.
