Cake Smash photography in Whitby, Scarborough and covering North Yorkshire

About your cake smash session

Celebrate your baby turning one by booking a cake smash and splash session with Rachel Barron Photography. Its so important to capture those all important milestones, that first birthday is one of the most important too. I’ll photograph those cheeky smiles and quirks that your baby has developed and their sheer excitement when the birthday cake is brought out. Whether your baby eats it, throws it, sits in it…they all make for amazing images. After all, who doesn’t like lots of sugar and sparkles right? After the birthday cake comes the splash session. A lovley warm bubble bath in my unique baby roll top bath means your baby can get clean and i get to capture some amazing photos of your little one enjoying a splash in the tub.

Cake Smash sessions perfectly compliment my newborn photography sessions.  Drop me an email or give me a ring to discuss colour schemes, flavours and decorations, as each session is tailored to your requirements. Blues and greens, neutral, pinks or any other colours that compliment your home. I have a wide variety of backdrops and amazing little outfits for your baby to use during the cake smash and splash session.

ABOUT YOUR SESSION

 Your cake smash photography session is perfect for children who are able to sit unaided, and unsupported. So 1 year and up is a perfect age. However should your child be slightly older let’s talk, and I am sure we can tailor it better for older children. As well as siblings and twins, we can plan the session during our pre-meet. We go into depth about your colour scheme and cake choices, as well as if there are any special requirements to accommodate your little ones.

THE CAKE SMASH PHOTOGRAPHY COLLECTIONS

From the moment we walked through the door, Rachel’s warmth made us feel as though we had known her forever! Rachel took the most beautiful photographs of my beautiful baby boy, you may think so what their photos but to us they are so much more! Our son is our miracle baby and we have been through hell and back to have him and to capture such moments are memories we are now able to treasure forever. Thank you so much Rachel, to us you are so much more than a photographer, you are our Angel and if I said thank you every day it would not be enough! If anyone has any doubts as to booking with Rachel, please just book in, you will not be disappointed! Thank you again

YOUR QUESTIONS

Obviously, you will have questions, and I will try my best to answer some of the most comment questions below. Should you not see it answered here, please do drop me an email where I will try my best to respond asap. Alternatively, please contact me via here, or find me on Facebook where I will be happy to answer your questions.

When should I book a cake smash photoshoot?

I would recommend booking around two months in advance to avoid disappointment. i will send you a confirmation email along with a contract and an invoice. There will be contracts to fill in regarding allergies etc too. We can discuss what colour scheme you would like and if you have any special requests.

Do I need to buy an outfit?

I have a variety of nappy covers, dresses and rompers that you can borrow for the shoot. Please feel free to bring your own outfit and accessories too.

What should i bring?

Most parents really worry about this. If you have bought an outfit, bring that along. You will need to bring bubble bath and a towel, nappies a drink and a snack are always helpful too. I provide the cake and decorations.

How long will my cake smash photography session take?

I ask parents to allow for the session to take around an hour. Your cake smash photography session is completley baby led and I will stop the shoot for feeds, nappy changes and of course cuddles. The shoot is in two parts, the cake smash and then the splash in the tub.

What if my baby wee's or poo's! in the bath?

Please, don’t worry! It is very unlikely that your baby will be potty trained. I am a mum of two and have worked in this field for 5 years so nothing phases me.
