Cake Smash time! There is only one way to celebrate your baby’s first birthday and that is with an amazing Cake Smash and splash! Not only will I capture your little one chomping and smashing their little way through a messy cake I will also take some beautiful portraits of your child in various outfits before we begin the cake smash. After the cake smash, we will then finish off with a lovely warm bubble bath ensuring your little angel will be going home nice and clean. Kids just love a cake smash and splash but not nearly as much as their parents do! To book your Cake Smash session please get in touch to secure your date.
It’s your baby’s first birthday and it’s time to celebrate with a Cake Smash!
Celebrating your baby’s first birthday is such a special occasion and lots of people like to pull all the stops out and make it a little bit special for their little one. Cake Smash portraits to celebrate your little ones’ birthday (doesn’t always have to be the first birthday I cater for all ages) have become increasingly popular in recent years, if you have decided this is what you would like to do and it is your baby’s birthday in the next couple of months you should be thinking of booking your session now.
Many parents like to book ahead of their baby’s actual birth date as they like to use the images for invites, share on social media on the day or have them printed for the special day. Don’t delay, now is the time to act!
Booking your cake smash in good time will also help if you have a particular theme in mind. This gives your photographer time to buy all the necessary items needed for your unique cake smash experience.
I provide everything you need to make your baby’s cake smash look spectacular. You can choose the colour scheme and I will decorate the backdrop with banners, balloons and all things birthday!
We will start the session with clean portrait shots, including family portraits we will then move on to the actual cake smash and finish with a lovely splash in a beautiful vintage bath. Most babies always love this part of the session the most! The session will take 1 – 2 hours in total. We work at the baby’s pace and if we need to stop to have a drink or snack then that’s what we will do. I try and make the sessions as flexible as possible for you to all enjoy the experience.
What if my baby does not like cake?
Have no fear we can still mark this special occasion with a fruit smash instead! It’s basically the same format for the session only instead of a cake smash we use healthy fruit instead. All babies love fruit!

Parents love to see their little ones get stuck in, eating and smashing their way through their birthday cake. All babies are different some like to gently munch their way through it and some like to completely obliterate it! I like to capture their very first facial expression when parents place their baby in front of the cake. This look is priceless. You can see the thought process that is rushing through their little minds. Is this mine? Am I allowed to touch? Can I eat it? When they are encouraged that look on their face is priceless.
