First Birthday Cake Smash Photography in Edinburgh and Midlothian
A fantastic way to capture your little one turning the big ONE!
Your little baby turning one is such a big deal. They have learned and achieved so many things in the past year, as I believe you did too! The very first birthday deserves to have a special celebration and be remembered forever. A great way to achieve that is to capture your baby turning one with a cake smash photoshoot in my Edinburgh home studio.
So what exactly is a cake smash photoshoot?
Well, it is pretty self explanatory! There is cake and there is smashing! Here is what you can expect from your first birthday cake smash photography session:
We will start with a simple set up and take beautiful timeless portraits of the Mr or Miss birthday person. A few family portraits will follow to mark this beautiful occasion. We will also introduce a couple of simple props such as big letters spelling out ONE, some balloons and of course the cake (no smashing yet though!).
A change of outfit is optional at this stage and this is when we will encourage your little one to get in there and explore the cake! Some babies get right in there, while others need a little more support and encouragement - often with mama digging in and demonstrating how to do it. Most of the time as soon as baby tastes the sweetness of the icing there is no stopping them! We let them explore, smash and get messy while I capture the most genuine, funny and beautiful expressions your baby makes.
Once the cake is all smashed up we will give your baby a quick wipe down and a short break while I quickly clean up, pack up the leftover cake for you to take home and bring in a bubble splash bath. This is the part most babies absolutely love - they are free to splash around, there are bubbles in the air and the general atmosphere in the room is just so happy.
After your session I will select and edit your best portraits and will invite you back to the studio to view them approximately 2-4 weeks after your session. You will then be able to choose the images you would like to order (see my full pricing here). Your order will be ready for you within 2 weeks.
