Leeds Cake Smash Photographer

Cake Smash Photographer In Leeds, West Yorkshire

I LOVE a cake smash photoshoot!

In fact I think I might have more fun than the babies!
Cake smash sessions are the perfect way to celebrate your baby turning 1! Cards and toys will be thrown away and replaced, but you’ll have these images for a lifetime. A particularly great thing to bring out at your child’s 18th birthday to really embarrass them!

The three elements of a cake smash shoot – portraits, smash and splash – This gives you a stunning variety of images from your session and we can even throw in some family photos too!

You can book in as early as you like for a cake smash but I definitely recommend leaving at least 2 weeks before your childs birthday so you have the photos in time!

"It's such a lovely way to celebrate my babies first milestone!"

I love the photos so much!.. Thank you Laura you've done an amazing job and the cake smash pictures look exactly as I hoped they would

- Charlotte

"We absolutely love the photos!"

After coming to Laura for a newborn photoshoot, we just had to come back for a cake smash photoshoot...I worried at first as my baby wasn't too keen on getting messy with the cake but Laura had lots of ideas to keep her happy and get her smiling

- Sammy

"Our pictures from the cake smash photoshoot are just brilliant!"

I'm so glad we decided to do it and even more thankful we got the opportunity to be in some of the photos with him on his first birthday pictures!...Highly Recommended!

You can book your session as early as you like once your baby is born but I recommend scheduling your session at least 2-3 weeks before babies first birthday to give us time to shoot the session and do the viewing so you have your photos in time for their big day!

Due to not having a food hygiene certificate, I cannot provide the cake but I can recommend some places to look at getting one from. If you’re making your own or going for a shop bought cake you want to make sure it has “smash-able” buttercream type icing rather than fondant.

As well as providing the cake, you’ll need to remember outfits, a towel for drying baby off after the splash any extra accessories you want included in the photos (I can provide the “one” letters, a personalised or “one today” banner, pom-poms and balloons depending on your colour scheme).

I recommend bringing a nice outfit for the portraits that we’ll start with, and then having an outfit change for the actual smash. You can buy cake-smash specific outfits from ebay/amazon/etsy etc however if you’d rather your baby wear normal clothes that’s fine too! You don’t need to worry about an outfit for the splash as most babies go in the tub naked or in a nappy.
