It's been a while since I did a cake smash blog and after this session, I knew this would be the one. Little Albie came to visit me the other week to celebrate his first birthday and my, did we have a smashing time.
Our cake smash sessions are a different way to celebrate your little one’s birthday. It's not only a way to capture this huge milestone in their lives but it also gives you lasting images and memories that last forever. Not only do they grow so quickly but nowadays with all our smartphones, it's not often people get real images taken. We always offer family/sibling images with all our sessions which I also think it is such an important thing to capture. How many of the images of your smartphones include you all as a family? I know mine doesn’t. As a parent(s) you are always behind the camera and not in the image. Creating those lasting family portraits are so important, and Albies grandad managed to come for a couple too.
This also leads me to approach the subject of prints. I always give ‘’Gift prints’’ with all my packages as it's nice to have your images in a physical form and not stuck on your USB in a drawer somewhere. Digital is so easy, convent and the way of life now however I do pride myself on providing a full service and this includes giving you something tangible. These even make perfect gifts to grandparents, aunties, uncles, godparents etc.
As always I offer some before images these can include family/sibling images if you wish, this gives you a variety of images on top of the cake smashing part and of course our splish splash in the tub. As you can see little Albie enjoyed his cake smash session so much he even decided to lower his head down the cake and take the biggest bite. This was defiantly the highlight of his session. He had such character and to watch him enjoy getting stuck into his cake was such an honour. It's always an honour to capture this huge milestone for little ones and their families. I truly love the simplicity of this cake smash and how little Albie rocked his session.
Every cake smash session is tailored to a theme/colour suited to you and your little one, in this case, our client chose a subtle but colourful set-up and went for our white backdrop with blue and white balloons, a simple but effective design. Picking something simple but subtle doesn’t take the focus away from little one and it also enables the images to be put up with any room decor. Bumps baby beyond also provided the nappy cover and braces which are specially designed by Pixey Dust Photography Props. Each of our setups includes the cake too! I know amazing right. Simply book your session with us and we have you covered for most of the designs/themes. I also offer varieties when it comes to the ingredients of the cakes. All our cakes are made by the fabulous Dina from Dina’s cake creations. She tailors the cakes to most dietary needs. We have done most now, Egg-free, Gluten free, Dairy free, Vegan, Vegetarian and we’ve even had our first fruit cake last year. Yes, I don’t mean fruit as in the actual cake I mean a cake made out of fruit. It was truly incredible. You will see from our sample gallery how great Dina’s cakes truly are and the fact she can tailor to most dietary needs is even better. Always get in touch and ask us. Here at Bumps Baby Beyond if we can do it then we always do.
