The cake smash photoshoot — also known as ’smash the cake’ session — is a fun-filled and exciting way to celebrate an early years birthday. It’s as simple as it sounds: the little one enjoys some messy play while I capture their adorable cuteness in the perfect photos!
Custom set design includes a backdrop from my current collection, decorations and props. However, as children can have allergies, I kindly request that parents bring the cake.
If you’re not a fan of cake, though, we can use other foods instead! Donuts, ice cream, pizza or fruit… whatever particular food you child likes to eat, the enjoyment they feel in the moment can make for very cute images.
Cake smash photoshoots are usually done 4-6 weeks prior to your child’s first birthday. This allows plenty of time to order portraits to display at their party and personalised ’thank you’ notes to send out afterwards.
I’ve also just started a Cake Smash & Splash optional add-on, where I can photograph your baby splashing in warm bubbles. This happens after the cake smash, and is a lot of fun, and can also help clean them up!
I would be more than happy to chat to you about these sessions. As studio sessions are limited and I do book up quickly, it is essential to book and confirm your session well in advance.
