Cake Smash Photography

Cake Smash Photography Session – Information

This session is the perfect way to celebrate your little ones first birthday of it can just be a great way to have lots of fun, eat yummy cake and get some lovely images to cherish, all at the same time! The ideal age to have a cake smash session is when your child is aged between 1 to 18 months old. People often wonder what is actually involved in this type of session but essentially it’s exactly as it sounds… your little one gets to have a gorgeous giant cake to smash to pieces! I provide a tasty giant cupcake (or you can bring your own if you prefer) for your little one to enjoy eating, playing with and smashing up! Things can get rather messy but that’s half the fun of this session.


There are three stages to the cake smash session:

Stage 1. Portrait Session – This is the perfect opportunity to be able to capture images of your family together before the mess and cake destruction starts! There will be a combination of portrait images of you little one on their own as well as ones with parents and siblings. Feel free to bring an additional change of clothes for your little one to wear so you don’t have to worry about their best outfit being covered in cake.

Stage 2. The Cake Smash – This is where the fun and messiness begins! This is when your child see’s the giant cake for the first time and can enjoy eating, playing and pulling it to pieces. Some children might not be too sure about what to do with the cake but usually after a little help from mum or dad then they happily start smashing away!

Stage 3. Splash Time – After the cake smash your little one can have a wash in a gorgeous vintage metal tub. There will be bubbles galore and this never fails to bring a smile to a child’s face which in turn provides gorgeous photos. At the end of the session you can take your tired but clean child home with not a splodge of cake in sight!

Before your session date I will send you a little information pack which includes a bit more information on the session such as what to bring and what’s ideal for your child to wear. You will also receive a simple questionnaire just to get a bit more information about you and your little ones and to check if there are any dietary requirements I should be aware of and also to discuss if there’s any specific things you would like to include in your session such as following a particular colour scheme.
