Make a Splash- Splash Photos!

Three Reasons We Love Splash Photos After Cake Smashes

It’s Cute

Splash photos are really stinking fun! Babies love bath-time and there’s just nothing cuter than a cake covered baby splashing in the tub. For most babies, the bath is their favorite part of our time together! I encourage all babies to make a big mess with the water. Most of the time this means they really start splashing and water is flying everywhere! Those smiles with water droplets frozen in mid air make for the most adorable photos.

It Makes Clean Up Easier

The tub portion of the session lets us send you home with a clean baby. They have fun splashing away, and you get to leave all the mess at the studio!

It Gets Smiles From Reluctant Babies

I’m going to tell you a little secret. If you have more than one kid it’s probably  not going to come as a big surprise. Babies are strange little creatures, and some of them HATE cake. Weird huh? For some babies, cake just feels really strange. Frosting is sticky, and for particularly “neat” babies it can be a bit shocking to have it all over their little hands. Babies who dislike cake, often love the bath. This gives us the chance to get adorable smiles from baby.

Luau Themed Cake Smash

My favorite cake smashes are those that take me just a bit of the box creatively. After coming to see me a few times, and always having fun ideas I knew that Evelyn’s mom would pick a fun theme! When she told me she wanted a luau themed cake smash and sent photos of the outfits she’d chosen I was really excited.

For Evelyn’s set I chose a scenic, beach view backdrop. I also added in palm leaves, flowers, and lots of Hawaiian themed items. Because you just can’t have a luau without sand, I crushed graham crackers to make an edible version.

Evelyn loved her luau themed cake smash session! Just like every time I’d seen her she was full of smiles. She loved the cake too! By the end of the day she was covered in cake and the studio was covered in graham cracker crumbs!
