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

Cake Smash Alternative – Fruit Smash Photography

Yay!!! Your baby is finally approaching one…

 

Last 10 or so months have been nothing short of amazing.

 

Remember those days that you stare at those little fingers, little toes? Remember when they first stick their heads up while doing tummy time?

 

When they start rolling from back to their tummy or the special moment when your child sit up independently for the first time?

 

Watching them grow through each milestone as they begun to sit up unassisted, grasp and hold onto food, see how they interact with their surroundings, the food texture, their natural curiosity that brings them to explore and experiment.

 

Of course, there are times where you thought, how we are going to go through with those crying and sleepless nights.

 

As a first time parents, we understand that getting things in order, keeping the baby clean is our priority. However, your baby is going to turn one, you are thinking what you could do to celebrate this major milestone of your little baby?

 

At Bambini, we always think of ways to help our clients to celebrate their children milestones.  Cake Smash is so popular these days but unfortunately, it may not be for everyone…

 

For children who are allergic to ingredient in the cake or simply prefer an healthier options. We have replaced cake with Fruit…

 

Watermelon is great for photography because of the colour. So, are you up for some smashing fruit time? Let your babies get their hands on these sweet bites!

 

If you have an older child, they can get involved too! Have him or her feed their little sibling, and have some bonding time. It’s these little moments of affection that melts my heart! Does it do the same for you?

 

And wouldn’t you agree? This looks like so much fun! Have an enjoyable photography session with us, tickle your babies and have those laughters and smiles captured together as a family!

Cake Smash Photography – Why we say YES now?

Why Cake Smash?

Bambini’s success lies in our VISION as well as how we operate… We believe not just in the commercial aspect of our business but more importantly our vision of preserving memories…

Since early 2015 and for about 18 months, we had been asked and asked and asked by our clients to offer Cake Smash and as parents, we have thought about it and we have been saying NO to such request… until 18 months later around September 2016…

There are so many things that we consider before offering a particular service or images… We go to great length in talking to our clients, cake decorator, party supplies people, our own photographers, etc. to ensure we are all in line.

As parents, we were worried about the culture of being wasteful… We are mindful of our carbon footprint, we just want to leave this world full of memories… We asked ourselves, is it okay for us to do that?

Then we decide to give it a go and soon realised that it is nothing more than capturing the curiosity of your baby with the fanciful cake that their parents prepared for them with love… so yes, we are good with that. An avenue to capture the thoughts and love that parents’ put in for their children.

As an artist, we often obsess with the our artwork and we think, it is a disrespect to the cake maker… But after a chat with them, they are more than happy to offer people more happiness through their creation… and they are happy when people can enjoy them…

As a photographer, we believe in memories… once we are good with the above… there isn’t anything that is stopping us to offer what our clients have repeatedly requested…

We are sorry we started a little late… but nonetheless we are inspired to be the best of everything we do…Our team has tirelessly prepared what works the best for our clients and we will have something uniquely ours… Thanks for being there with us…

For those who are thinking of skipping the she-bang birthday party to have a private ‘party’ to celebrate your littleone’s birthday with your own family. This ‘Cake Smash’ photoshoot would be perfect! You have professional family photos together with the decor and cake together in one session. Lastly, the smash or not smash is entirely up to you. Your shoot, your call:) See how we do it! In the end, you get tangible memories to share with your kid.

Went there for family shoot and cake smash for my 1yo. We are very thankful to Illiyin. We were quite late for our shoot. But she greeted us with warm big smile when we arrived. She is definitely very patient with my boy. Professional too. Overall, we enjoyed our session with her totally. One more thing, the cake that was arranged for us was really good too!
