Baby's First Birthday Cake Smash Photoshoot Worksop

A very warm welcome to my first birthday cake smash photoshoot page for my Worksop studio and huge congratulations on the forthcoming one year anniversary of giving birth to your favourite little person!

It’s time to start thinking about how to celebrate your baby’s first birthday in style and I have the answer, with a cake smash and splash photoshoot of course! 

 For baby, this is the ultimate multi sensory play session for them to enjoy with their very own special cake to get messy with and a wonderful bath with lots of bubbles and sing songs to clean up in afterwards. It’s far more fun than a party for baby and for you, this is a chance to enjoy watching baby have a lot of fun whilst I work to capture their cheeky personality and create adorable memories of this special event for you to treasure forever.

There really is no better way to celebrate! 

“And then they were ‘One’… where has my baby gone!”

WE ARE OVER THE MOON WITH OUR PHOTOS

We chose Petite Portraits for our Daughters 1st birthday cake smash photo shoot and we were not disappointed! We absolutely loved working with Becky! From start to finish Becky made you feel at ease, welcome and informed. We are over the moon with our photos and will cherish them forever. What a fantastic memory to have!! I would highly recommend.” Stacey

YOUR FIRST BIRTHDAY CAKE SMASH PHOTOSHOOT EXPERIENCE

Throughout your experience with me, I want to make sure everything is as relaxed and stress free for you as possible.  Having an almost 1 year old is hard work and no doubt you’ve developed eyes in the back of your head by now as they become mobile and start exploring everywhere they go! 

Booking your first birthday cake smash photoshoot with me at my Worksop studio is really easy…you just need to choose a few things first and then leave me to organise the rest! You can then just turn up on the day with your baby and have fun celebrating their first birthday! And at the end of your session, I’ll even clean up all the mess too,  after which I’ll start to create a gallery of amazing images for you to remember this amazing milestone with forever. How easy is that! 

But even better than that is the fact that you don’t even have to worry about coming back to see the photos to choose them, because here at Petite Portraits I know how stressful it can be to take toddlers everywhere with you. There’s also no need to worry about your budget when you choose Petite Portraits as your first birthday cake smash photographer. “Hmmmm” you might thinking….how come? 

It’s simple… because you’ll tell me exactly which of our gorgeous all inclusive packages you want me to capture when you reserve your date in my studio diary. I will then shoot specifically for those images and then select and edit the very best images especially for you, leaving you no worries about the possibility of being tempted into spending more than you would like. And then, even better, I’ll send all your images to you at home to enjoy. You will then select your included prints or wall art from the comfort of your home in your own time and once you let me know which you’d like printed, I’ll arrange that for you and also post those out to you at home. It couldn’t be any easier for you! 

 

 

Reserving a date in my diary is simple, just choose your preferred theme and package first and then get in touch using the contact form on this page and if I’m available, you’ll be required to pay a non-refundable session fee of £99 to book in. This will then be deducted off whichever package you choose, with the balance being payable at your session.

If you would like all your photos back in time for baby’s actual birthday, I recommend booking a session that is 4 weeks or more before baby’s actual birthday…this does not affect baby’s enjoyment at all on the day and also leaves you with their birthday free for their party with family and friends. 

When requesting a date and time for your cake smash, please do consider what time of day your baby is normally at their happiest for about an hour and a half. If you bring a baby when they are due a sleep, your baby may not be in the mood for a play session. A happy baby  mostly always means great cake smash photos! 

If you are booking Silver, Gold or Platinum Packages, these include me arranging a cake to be made for your session and bringing it to the studio for you….I love to make the day as easy for you as possible! However, and this is super important…if you baby has any food allergies, the studio is unable to do this and you have to bring your own cake…this is to make extra sure that your baby’s health and welfare are put first! 

Your first birthday cake smash photoshoot at my Worksop studio is going to be a lot of fun! Please plan your journey and allow time to park up so that you are not late for the celebrations!

Please bring the following things with you so that baby has everything they need:

Baby’s favourite non chocolate based snacks
Juice cup filled with juice/water incase baby gets thirsty
Baby’s normal bubble bath
2 towels
An extra pack of wipes for cleaning cake off everyone!
A spare set of clothes for yourself..be prepared to get cakey!
Nappy bag with all the usual bits in
A plastic bag to put cakey/wet towels into to take back home
Baby’s hairbrush or usual styling products
On the day try and let baby have any usual naps in the morning and a small snack about an hour beforehand too, so that they are ready for fun and not getting tired or hungry!

Upon arrival, we will give baby a few minutes to come around after their car journey, whilst you pay the remaining balance for your chosen package. After that, you’ll get the chance to select which outfits you would like your baby to wear for their session…there are so many! I can’t wait to see which you choose! 

We’ll then begin your session…so get ready to get cakey and have a giggle! If you baby is a real foodie….it’s usually hilarious watching them get stuck in and there is a record for the quickest cake destruction…will your baby beat it?? 

After your first birthday cake smash photoshoot session has ended at our Worksop studio, I will clean up all the mess and the bath water (our local babies do love a good splash) and then start the process of selecting and editing the very best photographs for your gallery. Once edited, these will be emailed to you via a download link to make things super easy for you. 

The download link expires after 5 days, so please download your images and store them safely on your home computer, or you will no longer be able to access them from the email. 

At your leisure you can then choose which of your images you would like printed in line with the products included in your chosen package. When you have decided, just email me and I’ll get those all sorted for you and once ready, post them straight to you at home to enjoy! 

And of course…if you’ve had a great time..I’d love for you to leave me a review on Google or my Facebook so that I can do a little happy dance knowing i’ve made your day!

YOUR QUESTIONS

Reserve the date you want as early as possible….especially if you want a weekend date! We only have limited spaces every month and tend to get some dates booked upto a year in advance! 

Your first birthday cake smash studio, Petite Portraits is located on Ryton Street, Worksop, S80 2AY.

There is easy parking available and the studio is easily reached from the surrounding areas of Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster, Mansfield and Bassetlaw being located just off the A57

To reserve the date and time your want for your cake smash photoshoot session at my Worksop studio is a non-refundable session fee of £99. This then gets deducted off your chosen package’s total. Leaving the balance payable on the day of your session. 

Unfortunately no. If you would like photographs with all of you in, please book a family session instead. 

The backdrops we use for these sessions are baby sized and so not tall enough to include older siblings or family members. 

Please bring the following items to your cake smash photoshoot at our Worksop studio:

Baby’s favourite non chocolate based snacks

Juice cup incase baby gets thirsty

Baby’s normal bubble bath

2 towels

An extra pack of wipes for cleaning cake off everyone!

A spare set of clothes for yourself..be prepared to get cakey!

Nappy bag with all the usual bits in 

A plastic bag to put cakey/wet towels into to take back home

Baby’s hairbrush or usual styling products if they have lots of hair

 

Between one and four weeks dependant upon studio workload. 

If you want your photos back in time for baby’s birthday please book a session at least 4 weeks before their birthday to make sure! 

Firstly don’t panic. If a baby comes in a bit grumpy to your cake smash photoshoot at Worksop, its often due to the fact they’ve only just woken up from a car journey. a few minutes chat normally solves that! 

If your baby is in the middle of teething, please ensure you give them something to help the pain before you leave home as teething is painful for them… my own children had Ashton and Parsons teething powders which I found worked so much better than anything else i had tried. They were like different children 15 minutes after one of those! 

The vast majority of babies who turn up a bit grumpy, don’t leave grumpy and we capture lovely photos in most instances. 

If the absolute worst comes to the worst and your baby just sits and screams non stop, don’t worry! First of all, this has only happened once in 7 years ..so it’s highly unlikely…but if it does, we’ll sit and play for a bit to see if they come around (which they normally do), or if they really are just having a very bad day, we’ll chat about whether to reschedule and try again. To put your mind at ease, on the one occasion I had to do this, the baby was absolutely brilliant at their re-shoot and the photos were amazing! 

 

Yes if you want them too. During your session you will be given a Model Release form to complete which allows you to choose if you wish to keep your baby’s images private or kindly allow me to add them to the selection I use to put on my website and social media. Your wishes will always be respected. 

Yes of course. You can add anything at all to your order. 

Your package will not cost more. Although we do recommend that you either bring an extra cake for your other baby or ask us about supplying an extra matching  cake, as one cake never works with multiples! However what you get in return from them is tenfold, as most multiples get upto hilarious antics trying to pinch each others cake! They are so funny!

Wall art varys according to product and size…if you would love to have your baby’s amazing photo up on the walls of your home I highly recommend booking the Platinum package which includes a voucher entitling you to £100 off any wall art sized 24×16″ or larger as well as a personalised print box containing all of your gorgeous images. This is a great saving for you and also includes home delivery of your wall art for you too!
