Smash & Splash Shoot
A Smash & Splash Shoot is a variation on the Cake Smash Shoot containing many of the elements of the popular Cake Smash Shoot with a bit for fun added to the getting clean again part! It is another Fun Shoot to celebrate your little one’s first or second Birthday. The shoot costs £60 for up to 2 hours in the studio. One complimentary 8″ x 12″ Photo 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.
As with the Cake Smash Shoot, the cake is not included in the shoot fee. 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 …but for me they are only £20………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.
This shoot consists of 3 scenes. We will start with a warm up scene with one background and change of clothes but may use a few different prop elements here like a chair, suitcases, pram, toys etc. This warm up scene allows the baby or toddler to settle down in the studio environment and get used to the studio lights and atmosphere. The baby can be dressed in their own clothes or you may prefer to use studio clothing. Photos from this scene will give you some good portraits for your walls before the mess begins!
The second scene is the Cake Smash portion of the shoot. This is the part where baby will be presented with a their cake and we will photograph all the mess and fun that ensues.
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!!
After this messy Cake Smash scene a very quick tidy up is done and the last and final scene prepared. A bath tub of warm water and bubbles is brought into the studio and baby is put into the bath to clean up. Most babies love a bath and so photos capturing this element of the shoot can provide happy photos of your little one splashing and having fun.
I do require a £50 non-refundable deposit on booking a Smash & Splash Photo Shoot. The balance of the shoot fee is payable on the day of your shoot.
