CAKE SMASH PHOTOGRAPHY
HOW IT WORKS
Your baby’s first birthday is extra special because, well, it’s their first! Celebrate and commemorate this special occasion with a cake smash. Yes it’s messy but that’s what makes it so fun, and I do the clean up so you don’t have to!
Before we get to the cake smash I’ll take some portrait photographs, then we introduce the cake and take some more photos before the lucky birthday boy/girl gets to dig in. At the end of the session they have the opportunity for ‘Splash time’. I’ll put them into a shallow tub for a splash about – and take photos of the fun if desired.
I supply a range of props, accessories and decorations for use throughout the photoshoot to create that birthday vibe and make your baby feel extra special.
Cake Smash Photography captures your baby’s unique personality and pure, innocent joy for a series of memorable photos you can look back on and enjoy throughout the years.
Andrea photographed our daughter when she was just a week old. The whole shoot was professional but laid back and Andrea put us immediately at ease. Our little girl was very wriggly and but Andrea had loads of patience and was really flexible with backgrounds/outfits/props etc. The photos turned out absolutely beautiful and are a lovely memory of our tiny newborn. I would highly recommend Andrea!

Andrea photographed my son when he was 2 weeks old. He wasn’t your typical sleepy newborn so took him a fair amount of time to actually fall asleep even after feeding. She was incredibly patient with him and very accommodating to us all as I ended up needing to take 2 of my older children with me (one of whom was a very boisterous 2 year old). Thank you Andrea, the photos were beautiful.
Do you supply the cake?
No. To ensure that your child’s dietary requirements are met I ask that you bring a suitable cake yourself. I can provide a cake if desired for an additional fee – please contact me to discuss your requirements.
Does the cake smash photoshoot have to take place on their birthday?
No, we know you may be too busy with a party on the day itself! In fact a lot of parents have it done 1-2 months before the birthday to use on the birthday party invitations.
How much cake does my baby eat during the session?
Surprisingly little – most of it remains on the floor as they’re having too much fun playing with it!
What outfits should I bring for the cake smash session?
First and foremost, an outfit you don’t mind getting messy! You’ll also need to bring clothes for your baby to change into after their splash in the tub. If desired, you can also bring a different outfit for the portrait session at the start.
