Cake Smash

If you’re looking for a new, messy way to celebrate your little one’s birthday, why not book a Cake Smash Photo Session? It’s perfect for your little one’s first or second birthday and will ensure their birthday is remembered in a unique and exciting way!

Each cake smash session is completely unique and will depend on your child! For most children it’s the first time they have come into hands-on contact with a cake so it takes a while to understand that they are allowed to make a mess and that the whole cake is for them! Some little ones totally smash the cake, others are just curious! The more inquisitive children apprehensively poke away at the cake looking at Mummy and Daddy for reassurance, and some just dive right in with feet, hands, face and all! We take photos of the cake and your child before the smash, during and afterwards. The expressions are priceless!

What to wear?

You can dress your little one in any outfit you choose but remember it will get messy!  Popular outfits are a pair of dungarees, a tutu, a nappy, frilly knickers, a printed T-shirt with the baby's age printed on the front, or a classic party dress. Colourful accessories also work well, such as hair bands, hats, caps and costume jewellery. You will also need to bring a change of clothes for your little one, as after the cake smash they will be messy!

What to bring?

We don’t supply the cake so you must remember to bring a cake with you. Giant cupcakes work really well and it’s better to choose one with coloured icing as it shows up well in the photos. You might find it useful to bring some baby wipes and a towel with you. It’s also a good idea to bring any comforters and your little one’s favourite toy.
