cake smash


Hi. Welcome to Claire Wilders Photography, Horsham, West Sussex.  I hope you enjoy looking at my birthday parties and cake smash page.

Can you believe your baby is almost one!? This year has probably gone so fast and it’s hard to imagine that your, not so long ago,  newborn baby is about to have their first birthday!

A photo session for their birthday is a wonderful way to celebrate.  I am happy to attend a birthday party to celebrate the day or how about a cake smash…

The Cake Smash

I love to capture a few photos of your beautiful little one all neat and tidy, looking adorable in their outfit before I introduce them to the cake. These photos can either be them on their own or with you all as a family.

Following this, the fun begins and they get to enjoy their cake. Alternatively, if you prefer not to use cake, bowls of fruit can also be used.  

Splash Time

In addition to eating their cake, a bath time session is also included.  During this part, I provide a small bath, full of bubbles and allow them to play.  Probably, more importantly, this allows your little one to be cleaned up and ready to be handed back to you.  Unquestionably, this is actually the best part for some children and they spend so much time laughing and giggling, that we are able to capture some wonderful photos.

Family Time

Celebrating your baby’s 1st birthday is a huge moment. I am more than happy to capture photos of you all together as a family plus any siblings.

We’ve had a couple a photoshoots with Claire. She did my sons newborn and 1st birthday cake smash shoots. She was very relaxed and professional and made us feel at ease. We absolutely loved the pictures and had to buy them all

Top tips ahead of your photoshoot

– Firstly, don’t forget your cake, try to include food on it that your child likes or why not bring a fruit bowl instead… the choice is yours

– Secondly, remember any additional decorations or keepsakes that you wish to have included

– Thirdly, remember any outfits you wish to bring

– You may also need some spare nappies

– I will provide some bubbles for the bath but you are welcome to bring your own if your baby has sensitive skin

– Last but not least, don’t forget to get in touch, if you have any last minute questions

– Above all, this is a celebration. so relax and have fun!!
