Here at Alma Photo Studio we offer Cake Smash & Splash Photo Sessions .

Its a very fun and memorable way for little ones to get messy whilst capturing a lovely selection of photos to remember their younger memories.

This type of session is also for babies who missed out on a newborn session, I can still do a milestone session after 6 months from the birth of your baby.

Even though I do newborn sessions, if your baby is a little older then 6 months we can still create beautiful images, we may even get a couple of smiles.

People tend to want milestone ages from newborns, sitting unaided and first birthday, but I will photograph your child at any age... I may even get them to sleep and pose them as newborns even if they are 6 months old!

We will discuss what you would like for the setup colour scheme or theme.

From this I will source all the things needed to create the perfect setup for your session. You also have full use of my props available along with outfits that coordinate with your set too.

You need to provide the cake or a food alternative for your photo session.

FAQ Cake Smash/Sitters

WHAT IS THE CAKE SMASH & SPLASH PHOTO SESSON?

A.A cake smash & splash is normally done for a little one who is celebrating their 1st or 2nd birthday.

Each session includes a mini portrait session, cake smash followed by a splash in
a little bath tub .

Your chosen setup, the use of props and outfit are included in the photo session.
The mini portrait session consists of a few photos of your child before the cake is introduced - you may bring one of their outfits along for this.

The cake smash is where we introduce the cake to the set - the messy part!
We let your little one get tucked right in (sometimes they may need a little encouragement so this is where mummy and daddy can help too)

Once I have a good variety of images we will then move onto the splash part in the bath tub.

We then fill the little bath with water and bubbles and let your little one have a good splash whilst I capture the last part of the session. The splash is also a good way for you to give them a good clean down too.

WHEN DO I BOOK ?

A.I work 5 days per week, by appointment only. So if you have a certain date in mind, let me know ASAP. I get very busy of a weekend, so pre-booking is vital to get the date you want.

I recommend booking 4-6 weeks before their birthday if you would like the photo order to be done in time for their birthday so you have it to display for their birthday.
I recommending booking in advance for all my sessions.
I do take limited amount of bookings each week so if you want a specific date or close to one, I recommend booking in advance.
I need more than two weeks notice when booking to make sure there is availability with the cake baker.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SESSION?

A.We will arrange a time and date for you to return to the studio for your ordering appointment. You will receive a full price list at the end of the session to take home. Please bring your diary with you to the portrait session.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

A.Your chosen cake whether it's from a local cake baker or supermarket the choice is yours.
*A little outfit for your mini portrait session or you could just do it in the outfit they are doing the cake smash in.
*You also need to bring a towel and some bubble bath for the splash part of the session.
Unless we have discussed anything extra you want to bring there is nothing else to remember.

DO I BRING THE CAKE?

A.Yes you do, for the best results try and purchase a cake which will compliment your chosen setup.
You don't have to bring a cake. There are other food options which work just as well too.

HOW DO I DECIDE ON A SETUP COLOUR OR THEME?

A.First choose whether you would like your set based around a colour or whether you would like it themed.
From there, if you let me know whether you would like a simple - minimal decoration or a full setup with lots of props, I will know what to create for you and if you have specific props you want me to use also.
You may send me any ideas you have seen for inspiration too.

WHAT TO WEAR ?

A.For baby and milestone sessions, I love whites, pinks, blues, grey's and pretty dresses (nothing with writing or logos). I also do "milk" baths with flowers or leaves, which they absolutely love! So when your baby is 6 months or over, a "milk" bath is a lovely part of the session. If you need help to decide, I will discuss this with you after you have booked.

WHAT DOES IT COSTS ?

A.We charge a session fee of £100 and then you buy from " À la carte" menu when you come at ordering appointment to choose your images .
Desk portraits start at £75 and beautiful wall art from £295.
As a fine art portrait we aim to produce beautiful artworks for your wall to enjoy forever. WITH THIS IN MIND PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT SELL ANY TYPE OF DIGITAL IMAGES.
Please note we do not sell any loose unfinished/unframed prints.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CHILD IS ILL?

A.In the rare occasion your child is ill before your photo session, please let me know in advance of the session and we can reschedule your photo session.
