1st Birthday Cake smash

Celebrating your wonderful 1 year old

Hands down one of my favourite photoshoots to do. One year olds are such special little things; full of curiosity and lots of wonderful emotions.


A cake smash isn't just the fun of smashing and smooshing a cake all over the place; it's an opportunity to have photos that capture your baby's personality. It's an occasion or your baby to have fun, make a mess and to celebrate their birthday.


All cake smash photoshoots come with the much loved bath splash session at the end, which not only means you get some fun and unique photos but you also get to take all of the cake off your baby ready for your journey home.. Or ready for your mini family photoshoot*

I've been photographing little cake smashing babies for over 8 years, pretty much when the idea came over from America. Over that time I have collected many props and outfits for you and your baby to use to make your photoshoot unique to you.

Booking is simple and straight forward. Once you have decided you would like to book with me and we have confirmed a date, all you need to do is pay a £20 deposit, which secures your session.


I have many different set ups to choose from. Have a scroll down to see which one of the themes you would like for your little one.

You many also notice that my set themes do not include balloons. I make a very conscious effect to have everything in the set re-useable or recyclable and unfortunately balloon arches create a lot of plastic waste and we need to protect and preserve our world so our little ones have a world to grow up in. Instead I use paper fans and reusable props to crate really unique sets.

Have peek below and if you like what you see for your little one then get in touch to chat more and book your cake smash photoshoot.
