BARNSLEY CAKE SMASH PHOTOGRAPHER

PROVIDING CAKE SMASH PHOTOGRAPHY IN BARNSLEY STUDIO

Hello and welcome to my Cake Smash Photographer page.
If you are here you must be looking for a
Cake Smash Photographer, Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

Cake Smash photography is a great way to capture special moments of your little one, with their first taste of cake. Now they have grown up from the delicate newborn stage and are wanting to explore more with new textures and tastes. Cake Smash photography captures a fun and joyful moment in a baby's life. Their first birthday is a significant milestone, and the cake smash session provides an excellent opportunity to document this moment in a creative and memorable way. It also produces a meaningful experiences that will last a lifetime. Plus, it’s great fun!

Here is some information regarding my style of photography and what you can expect in your cake smash session.

My preferred style of photography is timeless and natural, capturing your little one enjoying the cake, with gentle guidance from myself.  


My home studio is easily accessible on the outskirts of Barnsley. It is only a few minutes from the M1 and A1 motor ways.  

When you arrive at the studio we will have a little chat to ease any concerns and nerves. I want you to feel as comfortable and as relaxed as possible. 

Your session will last anything from an hour up to around 2.5 hours, however the timings are not exact.

WHAT IS A CAKE SMASH PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION?

A cake smash photography session is a fun and playful way to celebrate your child's first birthday.

 

The photoshoot involves your child sitting in front of a cake and smashing it, creating a mess whilst I capture their adorable expressions and reactions.

I do say though, cake smash sessions can be for any age!

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK A CAKE SMASH SESSION?

It's best to schedule a cake smash photography session a few weeks before your child's first birthday.

 

This gives you enough time to select and order the photos you want to use for invitations or decorations for the party.

WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR FOR THE CAKE SMASH SESSION?

Most parents opt for a tutu or nappy cover, but you can choose any outfit that you feel will look cute and festive. It's also a good idea to bring a change of clothes for your child in case they get too messy.

Ideally I like to stick to neutral colours such as whites and creams, but with a cake smash session a little pop of colour with the white outfit can look adorable.

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE CAKE SMASH SESSION?

A typical cake smash photography session lasts about an hour up to around 2 hours. This gives your child plenty of time to explore and play with the cake before getting tired or cranky.

I usually start the session with some clean photos of your little one playing with some beautiful wooden toys and balloons as well as a fake cake, then the fun starts with the introduction of the real cake. 

It is best to bring a towel and extra wipes and clean clothes as the cake smash can sometimes get very messy.

DO YOU PROVIDE A CAKE?

In short, no I do not provide cakes for the session. This is due to insurance and allergies. Any shop bought cake is adequate, however I do ask for no hundreds and thousands cake, also be mindful of the taste. Something with a really strong flavour may put the little one off.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

You will receive your link for your online viewing gallery is around 3-4 weeks, usually less after the session date.

You will be able to download your selected amount of digital images straight from the gallery.

 

I suggest doing this on a computer or laptop as mobile phones can decrease the quality of the images.

DO YOU SUPPLY PRINTED PRODUCTS?

Yes, I offer a selection of fine art and normal printed products, from lose prints to albums.

 

You will receive a pdf document with the products and pricing in. There is also a selection in the studio for you to have a browse through during the session.

 

I always suggest purchasing some kind of printed product, such as prints, album or folio, as they can be a staple to your home, as well as giving you something tangible to show your family and friends and have on display.

WALL ART
