Leo’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash


“Happy 1st Birthday Leo”


Another fabulously fun cake smash.  What a gorgeous baby boy and fabulous family.  It was a pleasure to host a Cake Smash Photography Session to celebrate and capture this special milestone for Leo.

Did you know that a Portraits by Sarah Cake Smash has 3 parts?

Part 1 – The Birthday Portrait

We take a few minutes at the beginning of the session to capture a traditional birthday photo before the real “messy” fun begins.


We did get a head and shoulders image but I like this one better as its a bit more fun.

Part 2 – The Main Cake Smash Event

With a bespoke handmade giant cupcake in your chosen colour theme with balloons and decorations to match the fun begins.  We sit back and watch as the confidence grows and smashing commences!  Sometimes we assist, sometimes we are surplus to requirements but there is always fun, giggles and mess.

And just when you think they are finished, they change their minds and go for it big time!!

I would say that for pretty much every cake smash I have held we have managed to salvage some cake for the Clients to take home.  Every cake smash, except this one!  It was basically crumbs!  Good job Leo!!

Part 3 – The Bubble Bath

The Finale!

The bubble bath is optional but it’s a great way to clean up after all the messy cake smash fun.  It also has a calming and soothing effect on the babies and helps get them ready for a great sleep on the way home.  But mostly it provides some fabulous “splash photos” to add some variety to your gallery.


I can honestly say with my hand on my heart that I love a cake smash.  It’s a wonderful photography session and celebration of baby’s 1st birthday.  A memory for parents to treasure and precious images to share with your gorgeous baby when they are older.

A big thank you to The Cake Rooms for the gorgeous and obviously very tasty Giant Cupcake.
