Is your baby turning one soon? Congratulations!

The first birthday is a special milestone in your little one's life, and what better way to celebrate than with a fun and colourful cake smash session? Not only will it be a memorable experience for you and your child, but it will also result in adorable photos that you can cherish for years to come.

Your Cake Smash Photo Shoot

BEFORE THE SESSION

Once your session is booked we will discuss all details from theme choice, colouring, food allergies and outfits. If you don't have any ideas, don't worry, I'll be delighted to send you some suggestions and we’ll work from there! I have a beautiful collection of backdrops from which you can choose your set up.

ON THE SESSION
 

At the beginning we warm up by starting with classic portraits including photos with parents and some portrait images of your little one with the set up, without the cake.  Giving your baby time to settle in and have some play time.

 We then move on to the cake smash part, where your little one will have an opportunity to joyfully play with the birthday cake. This part is usually very messy and is naturally followed by a bath where your little one can splash the cake away in warm bubbly water.

AFTER THE SESSION

My clients get access to soft proof (unedited) online gallery within 10 working days after session. I do not offer In Person Sale sessions instead you can view and choose your pictures in the comfort of your own house. From this gallery client choose pictures that they would like to buy with selected package. All selected pictures are hand edited with style presented in my portfolio. Edits are usually ready within 2-3 weeks after final selection. I will also guide you through all the product options if you are looking to create a special keepsake for your baby in the form of a Wall Art.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

You can pick one of the example themed set ups or choose the colour scheme and I will create a beautiful balloon garland for your little one.  The cake is not included but can be provided for additional £45 and will be handmade by a fantastic local cake maker.  If your child has any allergies, please let me know when you book the session and I will liaise with my cake maker.

  • When is the best time to book Cake Smash/First Birthday session?
    I recommend to book a date at least 3-4 weeks before your child's birthday if you wish to have the edited final gallery back with you in time for the big day. Alternatively, if you want to have the Cake Smash as part of the celebrations then we can schedule nearer their birthday to allow for this. I do book sessions months in advance, so booking your session ahead by paying a £50 retainer secures your spot and gives you a peace of mind. This is crucial for popular sessions like cake smashes, ensuring you get the date you want. By securing your session early, you have time to plan and prepare for the shoot. This results in a more relaxed and enjoyable experience. Although please do check as I may have last minute availability. I do recommend to schedule sessions when your child is not about to nap. This way, you can ensure a happy and alert baby for the best possible experience. A well-rested baby is more likely to engage and enjoy the session, making it easier for everyone involved. It is also wise to keep in mind that around the age of teething, taking preventive measures can ensure a cooperative and happy baby during photoshoots.
  • How do I book a Cake Smash Session with you?
    If you wish to go ahead and book your session or have any questions please get in touch by filling in the contact form below or message me via my Facebook page or Instagram. ⚠️ Please do keep an eye on your spam if you reach out via email as sometimes my replies might end up there. and let me know your little ones first birthday date. Please include your little one first birthday date in your message so I can then check my availability and start the booking process. To secure your session date, I require a £50 non refundable session fee upon booking which need to be paid via bank transfer within next 24 hours of enquiring. This will be deducted from the final balance of your chosen collection which is due on the day of your session. Booking fee does not include any products, prints and digital files. Deposits are non-refundable unless under extenuating circumstances.
  • Do you provide the cake?
    The cake is not included in the packages price but can be provided for additional £45. I do recommend to purchase the cake from us which will be handmade by a fantastic local cake maker who make sure it will perfect matches the colour of the birthday set up and theme of the photo shoot. If you wish to bring your own cake then that is fine as well but please make sure it will match the colour palette of the set up. I would recommend a cake with butter icing as this is particularly squishable!! If your child has any allergies, please let me know when you book the session and I will liaise with my cake maker. That being said, if your child has any dietary requirements to the point you'd rather source your own cake then this is also ok.
  • Do you provide the outfits?
    Yes, I will provide an outfit that matches the theme and colour scheme of your set up. However, if you would rather bring your own this is absolutely fine.
  • What do I need to bring?
    If you wish to use your own outfits or cake for the shoot, then please bring these along. Please also provide clean towel to use after the bubble bath. Having your little one's favourite snacks, bottles and their usual travelling essentials on hand can help keep them comfortable and content during the shoot. This can make the experience more enjoyable for both you and your child, leading to more natural and relaxed photos.
  • How long does the session last for?
    Usually up to 1,5 - 2 hours session time is required.
  • When can I see the final images?
    My clients get access to soft proof (unedited) online gallery within 10 working days after the session. I do not offer In Person Sale sessions instead you can view and choose your pictures in the comfort of your own house. From this gallery client choose pictures that they would like to buy with selected package. All selected pictures are hand edited with style presented in my portfolio. Edits are usually ready within 2-3 weeks after final selection. So overall waiting time for the final edited gallery is around 4-5 weeks.
  • Can we have a family portrait?
    Yes, I welcome immediate family for portrait shot, with siblings included. Please let me know if this is required and who will attend upon enquiry. I allow 1 family portrait for my cake smash sessions.
