The Cake Smash Shoot
A Cake Smash Shoot is a wonderful and fun way to celebrate and record your special little person’s 1st or 2nd Birthday with a fun photo shoot in our studio in Broadstairs in Thanet, Kent.
A Cake Smash in the studio costs £60 for the shoot………..which includes up to 2 hours in the studio and 4-5 different scenes and one Complimentary 8″ x 12″ print of your choice to be selected at the viewing 2-3 weeks later. The normal price on this size photo is £40. This complimentary photo print will be supplied with your paid order. Photo Shoot Fees only include your shoot, all planning and pre-consultation, first edit of your images to present to you and a personal in studio viewing session. It does not include any photos apart from the Complimentary Print which is only provided with you paid order. The shoot fee does not cover the cost of the cake. I will explain this later.
I require a £50 non-refundable booking fee to secure this booking.
The Cake Smash Scene
For the Cake Smash scene, you are welcome to suggest colours/props/backgrounds that you like for this section. The themes or colour schemes for a Cake Smash are huge and limited only by your imagination! You as the customer decide on the kind of colours/theme you would like. I am more than happy to help suggesting ideas……I have hundreds……or I can help developing any ideas you might have. I have a large variety of coloured backgrounds which I use…….and an extensive range of tutus and clothing. I will also buy in anything I need to make your cake smash shoot a success. Given enough time to prepare for this shoot nothing is impossible! Inspiration for ideas can come from TV Programmes or films, favourite children’s books, fairy tales or nursery rhymes, a child’s nickname, a favourite toy or something they are interested in; the decor in their bedroom………and probably a lot more places I haven’t even thought of!!
I do not include the price of the cake in the shoot fee…..so that is an extra cost.
As far as the Cake goes…….You have 2 options…….You are welcome to make or supply your own cake?? Or I have arranged a discounted price on the Giant Cupcakes from LexiLou. She normally sells them for £35 to £45 depending on the decoration …but for me they are only £25………which I pass onto you at the same price. Your cake will be designed to suit your theme and/or colour scheme. I will pick up and have the cake ready for you. I will still charge for cakes if they are made to order and the shoot is cancelled at short notice. You are welcome to supply your own tutu/clothes for this…………or use mine. I have a selection of nappy covers for boys………or just a little pair of shorts or denim jeans works well too.
I do require a £50 non-refundable deposit on booking a Cake Smash Photo Shoot.
The Other Scenes
I usually try to do 4 scenes in this shoot……….and with the cake smash being the last scene of the shoot. The other 3 scenes would be much like what you see in an Older Baby/Child Photo Shoot. Again here you are welcome to suggest ideas that you like in terms of Props, Colour Schemes and Backgrounds. I can even do a scene which is seasonal here ……..so Christmas, Valentines, Easter etc In this portion of the shoot, I am also quite happy to include older siblings and will design some scenes to include all your children, photographing them individually and together.
After the shoot is completed with the cake smash scene baby will have a bath off camera to clean up before going home.
