Cake Smash, one of my favourite sessions, they are so much fun! They are suitable for babies/toddlers from 11 – 24 months old and are a fabulous way to celebrate Baby’s 1st Birthday or just their transition from a baby to a toddler.

The Cake Smash Session includes:

  • 45-60 mins studio time
  • Optional Pre Smash Baby/Toddler photos
  • Giant Handmade Cupcake in your choice of colours
  • Coordinating balloons
  • Cake Smash Photos
  • Optional Bubble Bath (splash) photographs at the end of the session
  • All clearing up taken care of
  • Minimum of 15 fully edited images uploaded to an private online gallery.

After viewing your gallery you may choose which items you would like to purchase from a carefully chosen selection of exquisite wall art, coffee table products & digital images on a USB.


Where will your Cake Smash take place…

Your Cake Smash Photography shoot will take place in the comfort of my new studio in the peaceful village of Great Hormead, near Buntingford, Hertfordshire.  The studio has been designed with your comfort in mind and there is plenty of secure parking available.

How long will it take?…

Cake Smash photography sessions usually take 45 mins to 1 hour.

What to expect…

Lots of fun and mess!!

It is entirely up to you what your baby wears for the session. I would suggest you bring two outfits, one for the pre smash baby portrait and one for the cake smash.   For little boys the Smash outfit can be simply a pair of trousers/jeans and a bare top half and the same for a little girl but with a pair of frilly nappy pants or perhaps a tutu instead of trousers and some beads or a pretty hairband.  Etsy has some gorgeous cake smash outfits for sale, click here.

Please don’t wear your best clothes as it’s going to get messy and you may need to help your little one get stuck in!

The optional bubble bath at the end of the session is in an old fashioned tin bath and I use a Johnson’s Baby Bubble & Bath but if your Baby has sensitive skin and you use a particular bubble bath at home please bring it along.  Please also bring a towel.

If you would prefer not to have the bubble bath that is fine, just let me know, it will just mean slightly less variety in your gallery.


The Cake Smash photography session fee is £95 which includes your pre-session consultation, (either in studio or over the phone) exclusive shooting time; use of outfits, props and backdrops; a pre smash birthday portrait (may be a family portrait); your choice of a giant handmade cupcake or naked cake; co-ordinating balloons, pom poms or bunting. A post smash bubble bath; full editing of images and a private studio viewing session. Payment is required to confirm your booking.

My Cake Smash collection costs £425 for 10 images on a USB presented in a gorgeous handmade wooden box with an 8×6″ print of each image.
