Cake Smash Portraits

A fun filled hour in the studio. What a perfect way to celebrate your child turning one with a fun cake smash.

Bring along with you a birthday outfit. We provide the backdrops, balloons, birthday hat, banners, cake stand, wooden spoon and of course a yummy cake*. The session starts with fun balloon photos as this is a lovely way to begin the photoshoot and gets your baby comfortable with the the studio environment.

We then introduce the cake for messy photos with your baby exploring the yummy cake on a stand we provide. This creates really fun action photos.

After the cake is smashed we bring out our retro tin bath for baby to have splish splash time. Let's take a bath with bubbles and rubber ducks to wash away the messy sticky birthday cake and of course baby then goes home clean! A lovely way to end our cake smash studio experience.

* A cake is provided for each cake smash session with the expection if baby has known food alergies. If your baby has any food alergies then it will be the parents responsibility to provide the cake for the session.

The perfect time for a cake smash session is when baby is around 11 months old or at least 2 weeks before they actually turn one. This ensures that the photographs captured are all ready to display and share with family and friends at your baby's birthday party!

Baby's change and grow so quickly, don't put off your baby's photoshoot - book today.

As the studio needs to prepare for your amazing cake smash photo experience we need a mimimum of 1 weeks notice when booking a cake smash session.

What to expect...

Feel free to bring baby outfits, a towel, cards and presents, balloons or any decorations you would like to be included in the cake smash photoshoot.

The session will start with baby playing with balloons (this lets your baby get comfortable with the studio environment) then we introduce the cake for messy shots and end with splish splash time in a tin bath with bubbles and rubber ducks for more fun photos. The tin bath is entirely your choice, if you would prefer just to wet wipe your baby that's fine. We give the bath option as that way baby goes home clean!

Following your portrait session you'll be invited back to the studio to view the photographs in a cinematic slideshow to music where you can select your favourites and purchase products. There is a range of photography products available from digitals, photo prints and beautiful wall art for your home.

Tips to get the best from your photoshoot ...

When booking your photoshoot please consider things like nap times and meal times, we want everyone to enjoy the photoshoot and tired hungry little ones is not good!

We want to capture your baby at their very best so if anyone in your party is feeling unwell please do contact the studio to reschedule your photoshoot.

You are welcome to bring along a change of outfit for baby if you wish. The ideal clothing is plain and neutral colour tops. Please try to avoid any clothing with logos or loud patterns.
