Cake smash sessions are a fun way to celebrate and mark the milestone of your little one's first or second birthday. During these shoots, I like to capture the excitement on your little ones face when seeing, exploring and smashing the cake.

In my experience, not all children want to eat the cake and therefore we make the session as fun and sensory as possible with the addition of a wooden spoon.


Cake smash sessions can take place in your own home or at an outdoor location such as a field, park, beach or beautiful garden.

During the session, I will start by taking portrait photos followed by the cake smash and then the bubble bath splash session (if option 2 is chosen).

Option 1 - Cake smash only

Up to 1 hour session

Option 2 - Cake smash & splash

Up to 2 hour session

Please note, option 2 is only available if the session is taking place in your home. The splash session is a fun way to end the session with your child enjoying a bubble bath in a metal washtub. It is also a great way to get them clean after the cake smash.

WHAT about the cake?

Due to lots of children having allergies, I do not provide a cake and therefore clients provide a cake of your choice.

Use of either a white, natural wood or black cake stand is available with both cake smash options.

WHAT should my little one wear?

I recommend dressing your baby in a sweet little dress or tutu for girls or a handsome little outfit for boys.

Please bear in mind that cake smash sessions can sometimes get very messy.
