I love cake smashes, especially when we have other fun elements like hot air balloon and splash session to really get your child involved. But how do you choose what you want from your session?

I offer either a mini portrait session before cake smash or the addition of a hot air balloon session. I find that one year olds either dive in head first to their cake and you have no clean photos or they take a while to warm up to photos when there is a cake present. Photographs before are a great way to ease in to a smash session and it allows for frosting free smiles!
Why add a hot air balloon to your session? Every child I have photographed in a hot air balloon session has loved it. They are confined and safe in the large basket and surrounded by balloons to play with.

Does your child love water? If so a splash session could be a perfect addition to your session. With the added bonus that they’ll be sparkly clean! Swimwear can be worn during splash sessions.

What theme should you choose? This is very much up to you and your child. Do they have a favourite character like Mickey Mouse? Are they a girly girl who loves tutus and unicorns?

Currently I offer the following themes but if you are looking for something different please get in touch.
– Mickey Mouse
– Super hero
– Simply White
– White rose
– Unicorn
– Rainbow
– Alice in Wonderland
– Winnie the Pooh
