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.
If for any reason you are truly unhappy with my service I am happy to refund you your deposit.
CAKE PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION PACKAGES
Note: Your images will go through a quality controlled selection process. A final gallery of 25 images (subject to T+Cs) will be individually edited using industry-standard software and selection of editing techniques to further enhance your photos to create stunning portraits of your beautiful baby.
Booking a newborn session couldn’t be any easier, we will book your due date in the diary and confirm when the actual session date when the baby arrives. I recommend booking your session in around your 20-week scan.
Frequently asked questions
When should I book my session?
Where will the session take place, do I need to prepare anything?
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.
