In the world of photography sessions for young children, Cake Smash Photography Sessions are all the rage. But what if you are looking for a healthier alternative? That’s where Fruit Smash Photography Sessions come in, and Roisin Gregory at In The Frame Photography in Hemel Hempstead is here to help.

Cake Smash Vs Fruit Smash

Cake Smash Photography Sessions typically involve setting up a photoshoot for a young child’s first birthday and allowing them to smash a large cake to pieces. While this can be a lot of fun for both the child and the photographer, it can also lead to some drawbacks. Not all children enjoy cake or find the colours/textures to be as engaging. What’s more, the messy frosting fun vs fresh splashes of fruit creates very different aesthetics that appeal to different people.

Fruit Smash Photography Sessions, provide all the fun of a Cake Smash Photography Session whilst potentially appealing to families in other ways. With a Fruit Smash Photography Session, young children are given fresh fruit to smash, squish and play with. This results in a fun and interactive photoshoot that is also completely healthy.

The Fruit Smash Photography Sessions are the perfect alternative for young children most importantly. They are suitable for children six months to young toddlers. This means parents do not have to wait for their child’s first birthday to have a photoshoot. They can capture the child’s playful and joyous moments at any age.

What We Do

During a Fruit Smash Photography Session, children are typically provided with a selection of fruits to play with, such as strawberries, blueberries, melons, and bananas. They are encouraged to feel the textures and use their hands to squish and spread the fruits on their faces or on the floor. This creates a visually stunning and colourful photo that captures the essence of a child’s natural curiosity and playfulness.

Family Fun

Another great aspect of Fruit Smash Photography Sessions is that they are not just limited to young children. It can be a fun experience for siblings to get involved with too. This results in a beautiful family portrait of joy and happiness with vivid colours of fruits in the background that will look amazing on any wall in the house.

In addition to being a healthy and fun photography session, Fruit Smash Photography Sessions offer several benefits that parents and families should consider. When a child is surrounded by fresh fruit, they are given the opportunity to explore different textures, colours, and flavours in a creative and fun way. This offers many opportunities for learning and experimentation that can aid their development. When they play with different fruits, they are using their hands, they develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination which is vital at that age.

Lastly, a Fruit Smash Photography Session offers parents a unique and beautiful way to capture their child’s personality and playfulness. Every child is unique and deserves a personalised photography session that allows them to express themselves in an imaginative and creative way. When you take photos of your child surrounded by fruit and playful textures, you will be able to showcase their personality and character in a way that is truly unique and special.

The Splash Component

After the somewhat messy squishy play, those booking the Smash and Splash will move to a mini bath, with fruits and fun water play. It’s a great way to get a further range of fun photos.

In conclusion, Fruit Smash Photography Sessions are a unique, healthy and fun alternative to Cake Smash Photography Sessions. They offer a myriad of benefits for both the child and their family, including vibrant and colourful photos that capture the essence of their playful personalities. If you are looking for a unique and fun way to capture your child’s personality, consider booking a Fruit Smash Photography Session at In The Frame Photography. You will not be disappointed!
