Cake Smashed!

Smash The Cake

When booking please choose a time when baby seems happiest so the smash runs as smoothly as possible. e.g early morning or after a big afternoon nap, if nap times change I’m flexible let me know and we can alter your appointment, we need happy babies for the smash to go according to plan. Let me know of any allergies when booking especially to any cake ingredients  or washing powder.

Once we’ve organised a cake with Clare & Jo at The Cake Kitchen  theres a non refundable deposit of £35 to secure your time slot which can be paid either by bank transfer or Paypal. ( LDaly – 20-24-09 – 20370754 or Paypal – lisadalyphotography@mail.com)

Choose An Outfit – I have lots of outfits, tutu’s, hats etc to choose from or personalise your smash by bringing with you special bunting, balloons etc ……

Its an extra £25 for siblings to take part in a Smash The Cake session….contact me for more details

………………………………………………………………….

Cupcake Training – Allow time before a session to get messy with a cupcake, let them feel the buttercream in their fingers and try to hold out, don’t immediately clean them up.

What to bring – A towel, baby wipes, an old outfit to travel home in and a drink – smashing cake is thirsty work..!! Also everyone and everything gets covered so please come in old clothes and be prepared to get covered in cake..!!

TIP – Bring along favourite snacks e.g Blueberries, Crisp, Cheese, Yogurt etc …. Not all babies like lots of cake so its nice to hide snacks behind the cake.

………………………………………………………………..

Before the smash – I let everyone get used to the camera, lights, new surroundings etc before introducing the cake

Every baby tackles the smash differently, some babies demolish the cake within 10 minutes but most take their time, no rush.

I work fast to get as many shots as possible because I don’t know how long your baby wants to smash cake, one minute they’re loving life sat on top of a cake and then minutes later….complete meltdown because they got cake on their foot…!! Meltdowns are fine..!! Take 5 mins out, pick them up, give them a hug or a drink and then try again once everyone seems happier..!!

…………………………………………………………..

Editing normally takes 2 weeks so when booking decide if you want the cake smash around the birthday or would you prefer the smash two weeks before so you have the images ready for their first birthday.

Illness – The only time a session doesn’t go according to plan is if baby is ill, please if you think your little one is not feeling themselves please reschedule as soon as possible.
