CAKE SMASH INFO & PRICING

Baby Photographer Surrey

Until a child turns three, they don’t have much concept of their birthday, so a cake smash session in my Surrey Photography Studio is the perfect way to celebrate a first or a second birthday, and have something amazing to treasure for you, and for them when they are older.

 

We start with a sitter session with some transparent balloons, and then bring out the cake. There is no right or wrong way for your baby to react. Some babies will dive straight in head first, some will be more hesitant, but whatever their reaction, we will capture your baby just being him or herself! Your baby can then enjoy getting clean in my mini bath tub and have some fun with even more bubbles.

 

A cake smash session usually lasts between 60-90 minutes.

 

My session fee, taken at the time of booking, is £95 on a weekday and £125 at the weekend and includes:

  • A relaxed 60-90 minute session in my studio

  • Use of toys and outfits from the studio range

  • Six inch birthday cake

  • Splash in my studio bathtub

  • My time spent selecting the best images from your session, and hand retouching each individual image

  • A private password protected online viewing gallery of at least 25 images

"Rachel had lots of fantastic ideas about how to get the best pictures of our son Lucas, and was great at reacting to the unpredictable moments that naturally occur with a newborn baby. These moments actually resulted in some brilliant pictures! Crucially, when the photoshoot was interrupted, because Lucas needed feeding or comforting, we weren’t made to feel like it was a race against the clock.  Rachel’s patience and calming demeanour continually shone through."
