Cake Smash and Splash shoot in Leiderdorp, in a village next to Leiden

Smash and Splash shoot is a custom-made photoshoot.  Alena is specialized in photographing small babies. A cake smash photoshoot with original settings, beautiful props, and of course the balloons. 

After the smash comes the splash. Your baby can splash as much as he/she can. Fun is guaranteed.


How does the Cake Smash work?


  1. During our pre-consultation ( via email or phone) we will discuss your wishes for the cake smash theme, colors, decorations, props, etc. You can also send me some cake smash photos that you liked online to see what style you like.
  2. The cake. You can come up with your ideas about the cake. If you do not have any specific wishes for the design, then the baker will make a cake that will match the setup. Please let us know if your baby has any known allergies. 


3. The outfit. I have a collection of outfits for the cake smash photoshoots. You can also bring your own. We will discuss the possibilities during the pre-consultation too.


4. The day of the cake smash photoshoot. You will get an email from me with the things you need to bring with you. The cake smash session takes place in my home studio in Leiderdorp. All my packages include smash and splash. Premium package and Luxe package also include family photos. Luxe package also includes pre-cake smash photos.


5. Smash and splash. The smashing part is when your baby gets the cake and can destroy it. The splash part comes after the smashing. Your baby can splash in warm water with bubbles in a cute bath. If your baby is scared of water we can use an empty bath too.


6. Pre-cake smash. Photos of your baby before the cake comes. We can also use different outfits.


7. Family photos. Matching family outfits looks always the best.


8. After the session within 2-3 days, you get to see your private online gallery where you can choose your photos.
