Cake Smash Photography


Imagine giving your one year old a giant birthday cake and the freedom to get messy.  

This is a cake smash photo shoot.

With a mini portrait session before the little fingers hit the icing and things get messy you can be sure of an enjoyable shoot for both you and baby.  A cake smash session will leave you with some brilliantly fun photographs to celebrate a very special first birthday, and best of all you don't have to clear up any of the mess yourself!

With the exception of the basic package an over sized cupcake will be provided for your shoot in your preferred colour. Packages 3 and 4 also include your little ones name on the cake. 

Our basic package is a short half hour cake smash with a pre-smash mini shoot beforehand and 1 background for your cake smash. The basic package doesn't include the cake so please be sure to pick something that has a soft top so that baby can get their fingers into it i.e. buttercream rather than fondant icing. When booking please let me know the colour of your cake so that I can customise the props and background to match.

All other packages are a 1 hour photoshoot with pre-smash mini shoot and 2 backgrounds (usually 1 white and 1 coloured) and include a oversized cupcake. We want your shoot to be as special as possible for little ones first birthday so think about costume and props, we have some props for you to use in the studio but having a rummage around for some special or even quirky items can result in some unique and often unexpected images.

Be prepared to get messy yourself! As I am sure you are already aware one year old babies can be quick to crawl and may not stay in position for very long so I will need one or both parents to re-position their child so that I can spend more time behind the camera ready to get the perfect shot.
