What Is a cake smash?

For you, a cake smash is a way to get beautiful, fun and hilarious pictures, most commonly to celebrate a first birthday. It will give you memories to treasure forever. For your baby, a cake smash is a fun day of eating cake, playing, laughing and posing! Want to add a video to the  Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Pat-A-Cake packages for only £35 extra.

When to schedule?

Traditionally, cake smashes are held around a baby's first birthday. Some parents choose to hold it a few weeks before, so that they can use the pictures for party invitations, and some parents hold it on or just after baby's birthday as part of the celebrations.

What to bring?

We will provide plenty of baby wipes, and a cake for specific packages, and will decorate the background, however you are more than welcome to bring along any decorations you like. Some parents bring letters of their child's name or their favourite toy. Please bring any outfits you would like them to wear during the photo shoot as well as a clean outfit for afterwards, as icing will be everywhere!

What to wear?

This is entirely up to you. Feel free to look through our portfolio for inspiration, or call us for a chat and we can help with ideas. Please remember that the aim is to get very messy, so it's best to choose outfits that you're happy to get damaged.

What Happens After my Session?

Images from your session will be culled down and retouched and you will be sent an online gallery with between 25 and 50 images, and you can download up to ten of these at no extra cost. We are also happy to provide these images on a USB or print images professionally for an additional cost. Please check the website or call for more information on these prices or if you have any other questions.
