What it child or children has/have older sibling/s?

They are welcome to join in before the cup is made , on the actual background as well as on the side of hot cocoa cup so we can take selection of beautiful sibling photos. 

Can parents join in?

This mini sessions are designed for children only. If you would like family photos please book Family Mini Session here :

What do I need to bring:

For children up to 5 years old we would need bath towel, loose fitting clothes to change after yummy splash and festive clothes to have images taken before the cup part. For siblings : festive outfits. 

What will be used in a cup: 

Same as during my cake smash and splash where I use massively diluted milk, I will be using same thing and add a bit of cocoa to add colour to it. 
For each child we will be using giant marshmallows so they will be able to nibble in it if wanted that will make images even cuter. 

My child has allergies/ skin condition, can it still have a cocoa splash? 

Sure! you need to let me know on booking, milk replacement or emiollient for sensitive skin can be used according to what baby/child can be in contact with. We can do milky bath or cocoa with food colouring. Parents to check the ingredients and make a decision what will be best. Children safety is a priority.


After each session cup will be emptied, rinsed thoroughly, washed and then disinfected with baby safe products. Basically the same procedure as after evert cake smash and splash. Child will be offered quick rinse, if parents would like to, but I advice to have a bath or shower when you get back home.
