5 tips for a great cake-smash photography for your one-year old!

5 Tips For A Great Cake Smash Photoshoot

1. TRY SOME CAKE BEFOREHAND

If your baby is still just starting on solids and haven’t quite added “cakes” to their diet, eating cake for the photoshoot would be a completely new and unfamiliar thing to them!

Try some at home first! Find some colourful spongey goodness and eat it with them :) Smash them even, encourage some play so when they come for their photoshoot, they wouldn’t feel strange towards cakes.

2. BRING THEIR FAVOURITE TOYS/SNACKS

We all need some warm-up time, even adults! (I mean, at my age, I still need some time to warm up to a new environment) so understandably, kids would too.

Bring their favourite toys (that you wouldn’t mind getting a little cake on), their favourite snacks – raisins, biscuits, crackers – we can start nibbling on those to “warm-up” and then proceed on to the lovely cake we would have for the photoshoot once they feel more comfortable :)

3. TOWELS, WIPES & EXTRA CLOTHES! (for yourself too!)

It’s a cake smash… so by that, expect some mess, haha ^^ And in the midst of smashing, your baby might ask to be carried, or at the end of it, while cleaning them up, some cake might get on you too, so bring towels, wet wipes and some extra clothing.

4. BE PATIENT, BE PRESENT – STAY IN THE MOMENT

Depending on your child, some kids need more warm-up time than others, which is fine! Giving them time to warm-up actually helps us capture the best images of them later! We’re not here to rush through, but staying in the moment. Be present and patient and just enjoy watching your child observe and mingle in their environment, trying on new texture – the cake, and of course having fun!

5. GET HANDS ON – SMASH TIME, FUN TIME WITH YOUR CHILD

Children takes after their parents, they learn first by following what you do. You eat cake first, they eat cake too. We encourage parents to join in to have some shots taken together, even with baby’s older sibling. Getting them to feed their younger brother or sister can create such a sweet moment. No fanfare, just quality family time.

Took my girl’s 1 year old photo on the day of her birthday at Bambini. We enjoy the photo session so much, even my little daughter! The whole process is full of laughter and incredibly smooth. We received our photos for selection at the same day too. Thanks Bambini team for the lovely photos! We had a very memorable birthday for my girl because of you! – Ting Yao

Spending Family-time | Family Outdoor Photography

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)(www.bambiniphoto.sg)Not every kid is comfortable around strangers, and when you are planning to have a family photoshoot – unfortunately, the photographer would be the stranger, that you hope your kid would feel comfortable with!

That is a valid concern and we are aware! As photographers, we want to spend sometime with your kids to just get them to warm-up to us first, and definitely get to know you (mummy and daddy) a little before we jump into the photoshoot. We are not just concern in giving you the final products (the photos) but that you enjoyed the photography session with us as well!

It is like you are just spending family time, but the only difference is you have a photographer with you this round – so you get those family moments captured :)

Once your kid has warmed up – we start the photography session! When he/she is comfortable with us, that is when I feel they can be most themselves – which is when the photos turned out the best.

So if you’re having a family photoshoot with us anytime soon and if our photographers are just talking to you and your kids at the start and you’re wondering why we’re still not starting to take pictures, it’s not because we’re slacking, we are wanting to connect with your children and you as much as we can, so we can produce the best shots we want to for your family!
