“Today’s extra special because you turn one.
We’ll eat cake and have lots of fun!”

Be prepared to laugh until your sides hurt and have your patience tested, as one minute you are grabbing the wet wipes and the next you are joining in the fun on the studio floor!

A cake smash is the perfect way to celebrate a 1st birthday! Whether they eat it, smash it, poke it, kick it or throw it about it’s a session that will offer great fun for all involved at the session and always creates fantastic images for you home to remember the day with. With bright coloured cakes and messy fingers and toes, those cake covered little faces guarantee that you will walk away from the session with some wonderful memories and images to share with your child as they grow up.

As a full service studio I am able to provide you with props and outfits for your birthday session at no extra charge to give your images that little extra something. For most cake smash photo shoots a professionally baked cake is also provided, cooked by a local baker in your favourite colours.

After Your Session

Return to the studio to view your baby’s photos cinema style in our viewing room with a 60in TV to see each image at it’s very best.

The room has been designed with two big leather sofas and a fireplace to give it a homely feel, and to help you visualise your own images in the samples on display.
