Your Cake Smash Photo session. . .


What to is a cake smash photoshoot?

A cake smash photo session is a fun and “messy” way to celebrate the milestone of your child’s one’s first birthday by capturing your baby’s surprise, curiosity and delight as they tear into their first taste of sugar. 


What to expect?

The session include a number of pre-smash shots of your child in their amazing outfits capturing their many expressions. At this point we can also include one or two shots of mum and dad with the celebrant. We then introduce the cake and take shots of the celebrant making some amazing mess.  


What to bring?

We recommend that you bring a change of clothes for your child and you, as the icing can quite literally get everywhere.  Some of your child’s favourite toys may also be a good idea for comforting and distracting them at the beginning of the session. 


What about the cake?

We do not provide the cake for the session. We recommend that where possible, the parents should get a professional baker to make the cake and suggest a colourful design to help create great images (whipped or buttercream toppings recommended.)


What to wear?

It’s up to you and can be as casual or dressy as you like.  Most people choose to bring along a couple of outfits, usually one for the ‘pre-cake’ portraits and the other for the “Cake Smash” itself. Please feel free to dress and your child however you please, however, I recommend that you use this links to view some cake smash outfits for boys & girls.


Due to the messy nature of the cake smash, we recommend that you don’t dress them in something that you would be upset if it got ruined.


Additional info

The cake smash shoot typically lasts up to 2 hours. After each session, your images are retouched and can either be viewed via online gallery or we can arrange an in-person viewing.

The session costs £90 and includes a complimentary 9”x6” print.
