Your little one is approaching a year old – what a fantastic achievement to celebrate with a Cake Smash Photo Shoot! Your little one has changed and learned more in their first year than they will at any other time in their lives. They have an emerging personality, are taking their first steps and are exploring the world around them!

Capture the Light Cake Smash Sessions are a LOT of fun! You choose a colour scheme or theme before your session, and I provide decorations and a cake to match! Whether you want a bright rainbow, or a subtle natural look to your session, I can provide everything you will need. Cakes are baked by the amazingly talented Gabriella – take a look at some of her beautiful cakes on her FACEBOOK PAGE.

Your little one will enjoy exploring the cake with their hands and a spoon. They can make as much or as little mess as they want to! After this, your baby can have a splash in some bubbles in my beautiful miniature bathtub – which makes for some fantastic images and lots of splashy fun! We finish off with a cuddle in a warm towel and lots of amazing memories! If you prefer to have a simpler session, without a cake, then we can commemorate your little one’s Birthday with a simpler set-up instead!

This is also a great opportunity to update your family images, too. Mum, dad and older siblings are all welcome to join in, or we can create some separate family photographs, without the cake, before or after all the mess!

How to book your Cake Smash

Get in touch and find out more

Get in touch, either via my contact form on the website, by emailing or by giving me a call on 07801 811626.

I’ll then let you know what appointments I have available. If you are able to come in Tuesday-Friday, I usually have spaces within a week or two. However, if you require a weekend, or a specific time of day, then it’s a good idea to book a month or so ahead of time as these are popular and get fully booked!

Book your session

Once you have decided that I am the photographer for you, we will book you into the diary.

To secure your session, I will send you an invoice for the booking fee. Once this is paid, your appointment is secured.


Preparing for your session

If you have any specific requests for your session, I’d love to know about them!

If you have colours or a theme in mind, then let’s have lots of fun with props! If you would prefer to keep it simple or neutral, then that’s fine. too! I’ll order all the props and a cake to match. For inspiration, take a look through my gallery of images, or challenge me with something new!

I’ll send you a questionnaire so that you can tell me all about yourselves, your little one, and the props and colours you would like to include.

I’ll send you a few hints and tips on how to prepare for your session, too!


At the end of your photography appointment, we’ll make an appointment for you to come back to view and order your edited images. This usually takes place around a week or two later.

This is your opportunity to select your favourites and decide what you would like to purchase from your session. You can also request any special editing that you would like to take place, too.

Your order is usually delivered within 4 weeks. All wall art comes with a string or a hook and is ready to hang on your walls!
