Cakesmash & Splash

Photographing your little one Natalie is our Baby expert here at Blink of an Eye Studios, so she will be the one looking after you during your Baby Photoshoot Experience. She has been photographing babies professionally for 14 years and Newborns for 8 years and is trained in the safe art of baby posing. She is a mum of two and has photographed 1000’s babies over the years, so she is experienced in settling them too.

Thanks so much for your enquiry for our fantastic Cakesmash Experiences.

If you can, my advice is to get the Cakesmash done when your little one is around 10-11 months so that any images are ready for their first birthday. If you do want to book for around your baby’s first birthday that is absolutely fine too!

What do you shoot in the session?

The first part of the session is pre-cake. This is on the setup but without the cake, so we can get the birthday shots.
The second part is with the cake- we encourage you to get your little one used to messy play before the day and let them eat cake with icing before the day too so it isn’t the first time they try it!
The third part is the bath section- the Splash. This is normally their favourite part, where they splash in the bubbles in our little roll-top bath! This is done on a different set too. We have beautiful brand new setups! After the bath we will take a couple of shots in a hooded towel, we do ask that you provide your own towel for these shots, this is a lovely way to finish off the shoot and give you a lovely range of images. Our shoots take around an hour- which is the perfect time for little ones. Then we invite you back around 1-2 weeks later to view your images in the cinematic viewing room to select your favourites.

Why is ‘on the wall’ so much better than home-shot digital images?
There’s nothing wrong with photos you take yourself- the first day at school by the front door being my favourite. So Cute!

And you can’t hire a Professional Photographer to shoot every special moment.

But when you have a baby, they are little for such a short period. And over time, you forget how tiny their fingers are and the funny little expressions they only have as babies. Hiring a professional photographer to produce a photograph that you can look at, every day, is something you should budget for…..like a cot, or pushchair! Unlike all those other essentials, this will last you a lifetime.
