Cake Smash Photography

Your baby's first birthday is extra special because, well, it's their first!  Cake Smash Photography is a fantastic way to celebrate and commemorate this special occasion. Yes it's messy but that's what makes it so fun, and I do the clean up so you don't have to!

Before we get to the cake smash I'll take some normal portrait photographs, then I introduce the cake and take some more photos before the lucky birthday boy/girl gets to dig in. To end, I'll put them in a shallow tub for a splash about - and take photos of the fun if desired.

I supply a range of props, accessories and decorations for use throughout the photoshoot to create that birthday vibe and make your baby feel extra special.

Cake Smash Photography captures your baby's unique personality and pure, innocent joy for a series of memorable photos you can look back on and enjoy throughout the years.

I offer a range of packages to suit any budget. I can also create bespoke packages to suit your preferences, so please get in touch and I will be happy to discuss.

Cake Smash Photography FAQs

No. To ensure that your child's dietary requirements are met I ask that you bring a suitable cake yourself. I can provide a cake if desired for an additional fee - please contact me to discuss your requirements.

No, we know you may be too busy with a party on the day itself! In fact a lot of parents have it done 1-2 months before the birthday to use on the birthday party invitations.

Surprisingly little - most of it remains on the floor as they're having too much fun playing with it!

First and foremost, an outfit you don't mind getting messy! You'll also need to bring clothes for your baby to change into after their splash in the tub. If desired, you can also bring a different outfit for the portrait session at the start.
