1st Birthday Cake Smash Sessions

Wow! We have so many of you message us to ask about our 1st Birthday Cake Smash Sessions that we thought we would put a little blog post together to answer any questions you might all have. They are such a fun shoot and the perfect way of capturing this special milestone for your baby.



We recommend booking your session in with us as soon as possible as we do get booked up quite far in advance. We hate to disappoint anybody if we are fully booked.

Remember your baby's 1st Birthday session isn't all about the cake! It's all about capturing this special milestone and all the things your baby's learnt to do. We like to start with some classic portraits to really show your baby's personality and to show their progress at this stage in their life.




You are welcome to bring along a favourite outfit you have for your baby or any toy or book that they currently love. But we have plenty of props at our custom designed studio though and a beautiful collection of outfits for you to choose for your baby to wear on their portraits.

Your are welcome to have family and sibling portraits at the start of your baby's 1st birthday session too, before things get messy with the cake.



After the classic portraits have been taken, it's time to have some portraits with birthday themed props. We have a massive collection of handmade birthday themed outfits and accessories for your baby to wear. They can be as plain or themed as you wish to suit your style and tastes. Now it's time for the cake! Our sessions include a gorgeous professional made cake for your baby to enjoy. Every baby is different as to what they do with their cake and we have lots of patience and experience to make sure they have fun!



After the messy play with the cake smash, it's time to get clean and have fun in the bath. Bubbles and lots of splashing with rubber duckies means that the Bath Splash portraits are often your baby's favourite part of the shoot and we get some great candid portraits.

Our studio is lovely and warm and we have big fluffy towels keep your baby cosy and to dry them off.



And that's a wrap!...just time to book you in to come back and see all your finished portraits. We have lots of products and packages that are perfect for showcasing these special memories.
