CAKE SMASH

SWANSEA

LET THEM EAT SMASH CAKE

The Cake Smash. A sensory experience that one-year-olds just can’t get enough of.

Some cake smashes are big, ridiculously messy affairs but I understand that some little ones like to have a slightly gentler experience, a bit of fuss-free fun that’s simple rather than forced or tacky.

Some like to dive right in, some take neat little nibbles from the edges of the cake and some just completely face-plant into the soft sponge.

It makes for great photos either way.

AMAZING

So today I took my niece to Elicia’s studio for a cake smash photoshoot as a surprise for my sister, and me and my sister are overwhelmed by how amazing they are and my sister very much surprised. Elicia made both me and my niece feel so comfortable in her studio and the the props were amazing and beautiful is an understatement, and she couldn’t do enough to help even with the cleaning up of my niece!!  would highly recommend thank you so much xx

BOOK YOUR SWANSEA CAKESMASH SESSION

We usually book your cake smash on or around baby’s first birthday, and they take place on weekdays in my Swansea photography studio (so that you don’t have to do the cleaning up!).

We don’t go straight in with the cake cake though…

Instead we take a few smarter portraits in some of my bespoke outfits, that have been specially designed for my studio while baby is all neat and tidy.

Then it’s time to bring out the cake. I use a local cake-maker to whip me up a delicious naked cake, then we hand baby a wooden spoon, sit back and watch.

Once baby’s had a go at the cake, we top things off with a lovely bubble bath. It’s a simple, stripped-back session with very few embellishments (no tutus or sparkly crowns), just baby, spoon and cake. I use an earthy palette that gives the images a soft, natural vibe, because I believe this session should be all about baby with no tacky gimmicks.

It’s lovely.

02. Consultation

 Once you’ve booked your session you can either pop round to the studio or we can chat on the phone.

This will give us a chance to talk about what day/time works best for you, what sort of vibe you’d like to go for, colour schemes and the type of products your drawn to so that we can get the best from your session.

CAKESMASH SESSION

Smart portraits, cake-smashing, bubble-bath.

That’s the usual order of things. I’ve got some great little outfits here in the studio that are just absolutely gorgeous to guarantee that your baby looks adorable throughout the whole session.

 The best bit – coming to my Swansea studio means that you don’t have any mess to clean up either, so win-win!

And if you’re lucky – there’ll be enough cake to box up so that you can take home too.

VIEWING SESSION

After I’ve had a chance to work my magic in the editor’s seat, I’ll invite you back to have a little browse through some hilarious photos of your baby going to town on a sponge cake.

Then you can choose which photos you like and we can discuss which package best works for you, but I already know that you are going to love them ALL!

During the viewing session you’ll also be able to order a stunning piece of wall art to celebrate baby turning ONE!

Do I need to bring anything?

Please bring a smart outfit for the photos before the cakesmash itself. I will provide the outfit for the messy part!

What if my baby has allergies?

Please discuss this with me before hand – we can cater to some allergies, however in some instances you may need to supply your own cake.

Can I choose the colour of our cake?

Absolutely – during our consultation we will discuss any colour themes or ideas you have and I will create a set that’s perfect for you

Still have questions? 

BECAUSE WHATS BETTER THAN CAKE?

IF YOUR BABY IS TURNING ‘ONE’ – LET’S CELEBRATE IN STYLE WITH PHOTOS TO REMEMBER!

love Elicia xoxo
