You have just got love a cake smash; I'm hoping by visiting this page its means you love them just as much as me! The cake smash session originated from the states serval years ago and has grown in popularity. It's a fun and vibrant session that celebrates your babies first birthday perfectly. 

So much happens to you and your baby in their first year of life, it goes so fast. It's such a great way to celebrate this magical time, and I think it's a perfect gift to give your child that will last a lifetime. It will bring you and them so much joy for years to come. 

It's a great way to capture this milestone by photographing it by creating your theme; there so many possibilities. 

I would recommend booking a session at least a month before your littles big day, and it means you can use your images to make the perfect first birthday invitations or birthday thank you note.

I know that committing to buying a photography session and package may seem daunting; I can't imagine paying upfront for a big purchase without seeing it first. 

 

For this reason, I do not charge you for anything upfront; there are no hidden costs. You only buy the images you love! No hard sell.

I only ask that you pay a £99 deposit to secure your session date. Then the £99 is deducted from any package and wall art you may like to purchase after seeing your final collection of images.

 

If for any reason you are truly unhappy with my service I am happy to refund you your deposit.

Frequently asked questions

When should I book my session?


As a general rule of thumb, I like to schedule the cake smash session 3-4 weeks prior to their birthday. If you are using the pictures for invitations or to decorate with at the party this will give us plenty of time to find a great day that works well for both of us and to have enough time to get the pictures back in time before your little one’s birthday.




Where will the session take place, do I need to prepare anything?


I come to your home, with me I will bring a fully functioning studio set up will all the equipment needed. Each session is uniquely styled for your baby, through the use of props, blankets and head wear. Each setup is created to reflect your colour preferences, creating timeless images for you to treasure. I will bring all this with me on the day. So you can sit back and relax. For cake smash sessions, I will require enough space to set up. I will need a hard floor, so a kitchen or dining room works well. Space permitting. I will ask to send me a snapshot of your space upon booking to make sure we can go ahead. If I feel space will not work, I can hire a studio space for a couple of hours at a very small charge. This part is easy, as many of the items used during sessions are everyday items your baby uses or plays with. For example, your sweetheart’s first teddy, blanket etc, are very welcome at the session and I will try my best to incorporate them in the photos.




How many outfits should I prepare for the session?


At least four outfits for the cake smash session is a good number to sort out. I like to always have at least two for variety's sake. You will need at least one outfit for the before the cake pictures. If you don’t want them to get cake all over that outfit you will need a separate outfit for them to wear while they are eating their cake. I always recommend bringing a backup outfit in case of any accidents and they need to change. You will need an outfit for them to wear once they are all cleaned up and the session is finished.




What time will you arrive on the day?


Sessions begin at 10 am and lasts up to 60-90 minutes.




Can we have family pictures?


Yes, of course, you can. Please chose package two or three to include family and sibling shots. This will allow me more time to capture these images for you and change backdrops for your portraits.




What should I consider when planning outfits?


My biggest piece of advice is to choose something that coordinates well with the colours or the theme that you picked out. My second piece of advice is for you to choose cute accessories that match the outfit. I do have some outs that you are welcome to use during your session.




How do I choose a theme for a session?


During our initial consultation, we can discuss the props I have available and what you'd be interested in using during our shoot. For example, I have various backdrops, blankets, baskets and other items. I am also 100% open to you bringing your own props. In fact, I love it when parents have their own props! After all, using something special of the child's may prove more meaningful to you.
