Cake Smash Photography

Smash the Cake Photo Shoots

Cake Smash Photography session, this is a fun and messy way to celebrate the milestone of your little one’s first birthday. Capture the curiosity and the surprise as they tuck into a tasty cake but it doesn’t stop there, with my Cake Smash Photography session it includes “Splash time”. Towards the end of the session you will have the use of my bath tub, a chance for your little one to have even more fun with lots of bubbles and rubber ducks. Balloons and buntings are included but your are more than welcome to bring your own.

How to Prepare for a Cake Smash Session

A cake smash photo session is a fun, joyful way to commemorate the milestone of your little one’s first birthday. Capture your baby’s surprise, curiosity and delight as they tear into their first taste of sugar. A cake smash is a great way to express your baby’s unique personality in a relaxed and carefree way.

What to Expect

I start with some pre-smash portraits being taken of your child, capturing their many expressions. We then introduce the cake and let the fun begin finishing off with splash time at the end.

When to Schedule

You can book as far in advance as you like, this ensures you get a slot that suits you best. Most of my clients book before their baby’s birthday as images from their cake smash session are used to display at their baby’s birthday party and used for Thank you Cards.

What to Bring

Please bring a change of clothes for the both of you, as the icing can quite literally get everywhere. A few of your child’s favourite toys may also be a good idea too for comforting and distracting them at the beginning of the session.
You can choose to bring your own personalised bunting with your child’s name on too if you wish.

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. I love bare bellies on little ones for the “cake smash” teamed with tutus, a onesie or jeans. Feel free to dress and accessorize your child however you please. If your looking for something special and unique a great place to try is Esty and Facebook.
Please remember that their clothing will end up covered in icing so don’t dress them in something that you would be upset if it got ruined.
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to call or email me and I will be happy to help you in anyway to make sure that your child’s Cake Smash photos are something that you’ll cherish forever.

What Happens After Your Session

Images from your cake smash session will be culled down and retouched and will be presented to you on a private online gallery where your be able to choose your favourites to go on disc you will also be able to purchase extra images and prints if you wish.
