A birthday cake smash photography session is a fun and memorable way to mark your little one’s first or second birthday. You’ll leave with images you will treasure for many many years  My cake smash sessions include a cake and decorations in a colour palette or a fun theme of your choice. The session is led entirely by your baby – sometimes they will be happy playing with a cake for a long time, others want to move on more quickly. No matter what happens, I will capture some fun photos of the experience and I’ll always be sure to include a variety of different shots for you to choose your favourites from!

Some parents worry about feeding their baby with sugar. In my experience, the cake smash is much more about making mess. Although your little one may taste their cake, most don’t eat very much of it but instead enjoy it as messy play!

Some babies aren’t very interested in the cake, so I’ll hide some of their favourite snack in it or put a loved toy nearby so that they are keen to get involved.
