What is a cake smash?
A 1st birthday cake smash session, is a celebration of your babies 1st year! So much has changed and life has been crazy! But you have all survived and you have the most amazing little baby that is growing up so fast!! This is not only a birthday celebration but also a celebration of making it through your 1st year.
The session is split into 4 parts… family photos, individual photos, cake smash and finally the clean up.. ALL for ONE price!
The first part of the cake smash session is to capture some gorgeous photos of you all together. Celebrating that first year!
the birthday child
Prior to presenting the cake, is a great time to capture some cute photos of your little one, surrounded by banners and balloons. I like to keep my set ups simple, so that the birthday child is centre stage!
the cake smash
This is the part where the cake comes out. Now this doesn’t actually have to be cake.
It can be a bowl full of their favourite fruit, a donut or muffin, their favourite snack.. whatever you want.
One of the little girls above had a raspberry cake… she completely ignored the cake and went straight for the raspberries!! The look on her face was priceless and she just grabbed a handful (see below left)! In the end we had to remove some of them, to stop her eating the whole lot and making herself ill.
the clean up
For some children, they’re not bothered about the cake BUT they do LOVE the bubble bath!
This is a time for your children to play in the warm bubble bath and enjoy some splashing around. Some manage to make huge puddles around my studio but watching their little faces is a picture..
booking a session…

Normally, I say you will receive around 30 photos but quite often this can be more as we capture your child enjoying the session…. even when they don’t they still look cute though…
