Cake smash Photoshoots

Our cake smash photo shoots start with some photographs in their favourite outfit before they dive in. We get some great portraits to mark their first milestone. They might be crawling or even walking so we capture their stage of development with their glad rags on. Bring your one-year-old’s favourite toys or birthday cards to help mark the day. Then it’s time to get messy. We don’t supply a cake, in case of allergies, but can give you loads of advice as to what works well.

You can never predict how a little one will react to a cake in front of them. Sometimes they dive in headfirst and other times we get messier than them! After the hopeful devastation, we have bathing facilities for the little so bring a towel and avoid planning to go anywhere afterwards. We hope you don’t mind picking icing out of your hair! Afterwards, we will organise for you to view your photographs on a different day in the comfort of our viewing room.

We advise to not book your cakesmash photoshoot on your childs birthday. Its going to be a busy day for them already. Try to pick a day just before or after their 1st birthday.

We dont supply cakes for allergy reasons. We recommend a cake with soft icing. Hard chocolate cakes don’t melt enough to get messy.

On the day bring

  • a cake
  • a towel
  • plenty of baby wipes
  • a drink (for the baby not you)
  • savoury snacks
  • Extra cloths for you and baby
  • Baby wash if you’d like to use our baby bath


  • Birthday Cards
  • Props ( but we have loads)
