CAKE SMASH Sessions are FREE. I require a non refundable booking fee of £99 to secure your session date, and this will then come off the price shown below.
The perfectly fun way to celebrate your little ones big 1st birthday.
This big milestone only happens once in your little ones lifetime & what better way to celebrate & remember the occasion than with a Cake Smash & Splash?
With this super fun session you’ll choose your preferred backdrop for your shoot & a cake will be hand made (any food allergies that your little one may have can be discussed following booking).
This yummy cake will be placed in the centre of the studio surrounded by party decorations (to match your chosen backdrop) & your little one will be encouraged to get super messy!!!
After the messy part, little one gets to splish around in the splash tub surrounded by fluffy bubbles.
The session will consist of a mini portrait session, cake smash followed by a splash session. which should last around 2hrs. I encourage you to bring two adults to the session to help run around after little one & adult participation is always a bonus during this fun session. Oh, and don't forget a towel and plenty of wipes...
might be an idea to bring a spare change of clothes for yourselves as I've found that parents can get just as messy! lol.
Once your images are edited (2-3weeks after session) you will receive a 'Gallery Activation' message. Once you give me the go ahead I will forward your password and you and your family can then access your gallery on my website. You will be able to choose 3 images of your choice to have sent digitally via email, for you to print as you wish.
Further products not included with the session fee are additional, you can view and choose these from your gallery by selecting your required item/s should you wish too.
Simply book in under your babys birthday month & contact me over at www.facebook.com/mlbphotographic or phone 01298 812105 to arrange a mutually convenient date as close to your
little ones birthday as we can manage.
Due to the nature of Cake Smash & Splash sessions, I only do one Cake Smash & Splash session per day so please do book in advance of your little ones birthday.
I’m looking forward to helping you celebrate your little ones 1st birthday in style!
HOW IT WORKS:
At least two weeks notice is required for these sessions, this is so my cake supplier has enough time to source supplies for your personalised cake.
Sessions are FREE. I require a non refundable booking fee of £99 to secure your session date, and this will then come off the price shown below, final payment must be paid by the day before session.
All you need to do is choose your backdrop upon booking, and then I supply the cake to match!
Please inform me of any allergies!

COVID19 STUDIO GUIDELINES
With the current Covid situation in High Peak, I feel it is not the right time to ease any safety protocols on 19th July.
At present High Peak is seeing some of the highest levels of COVID – the largest number of cases in the last week through all three waves of the pandemic.
On Monday I will continue to follow my current model of service and operation, I will still be wearing a face mask and even though it will not be legal I would appreciate you wearing one too please, due to my studio being in my home. I will still be cleaning down all my surfaces and props etc... I'm doing my best to protect you, myself & my family as much as possible, I have had both vaccines myself.
I feel this is the responsible thing to do for our community and will continue to monitor the situation.
Thank you for your understanding
I appreciate this is a very unusual time for us all, and not being able to work in the same way as before will be very hard, as the type
of photography session will also be very limited, as will the number of people I can have in my studio at any one time, due to my studio
being in my home. Availability will also be a lot less so I would like to thank you in advance for your patience during this time.
STUDIO GUIDELINES AND PRECAUTIONS FROM 19th JULY 2021:
BEFORE - Handwashing before and after a session has always been essential, as was washing props such as outfits and fabrics between
each session, and a good clean of the studio.
ADDITONAL PRECAUTIONS - Hand sanitizer available for clients and myself to use, face masks and only one client per day.
Please read the following before coming to the studio, as these might be updated regularly with new information. To keep myself and
you safe the following must be STRICTLY followed.
ILLNESS - If someone in you're household has been unwell in the last 72 hours or if someone who you have been in contact with outside
your household, please rearrange you're session
(no extra charge unless you have had to rearrange a cake smash booking, please contact me for details).
Please note, I will also postpone a session if myself, or a member in my household also has been unwell.
PAYMENT - To book a session, a non-refundable booking fee must be made, and this is done via bank transfer.
No refunds will be made but any session effected will simply be re-schduled. Going forward, all remaining balances MUST be paid via
bank transfer a few days (or once your little one has arrived, for newborn sessions) before you're session is due
(even if you have to re-schedule, remaining balance MUST be paid please see my T&C about booking fees/session fees)
no cash will be exchanged.
LIMITED SESSIONS - Sessions will be limited to 1 a day with at least 24hrs between each client.
NEWBORN SESSIONS - Only mum & baby will be allowed in the studio during the session. If you have gone for the Full Newborn Session & would like sibling/family shots done,
these will be done at the end of your session and I ask that dad or a close family member/friend brings siblings for the last 20 mins.
Max of 6 people only for now. Masks MUST be warn upon arrival please... they can be taken off once you are in the studio area for your photos.
CAKE SMASH SESSIONS: Please bring plenty of wipes, towels & maybe a spare pair of clothes for yourself... parents tend to get just as messy!
