The Portraits

Finally, we'll pop baby in the bath tub for a "splash". This is often babies favourite part of the session and we can even get some bubbles involved too! Get ready for lots of giggles, sloshing water and bubble beards!

Then it's the cake smash! We'll pop the cake down in front of the baby and give them a spoon to smash it with! Babies sometimes don't get into it right away but I've got lots of tips and tricks to help get things going!

We'll start the session off with some gorgeous portraits of your baby on their own before we bring out the cake. It's a great idea to have some favourite songs ready to sing along to get those big cheeky smiles!

Cake smash photography

LET'S HAVE A SMASHING TIME!

I LOVE a cake smash session!

In fact I think I might have more fun than the babies!

Cake smash photoshoots 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 - give 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!

After coming to Laura for a newborn photoshoot, we just had to come back when our baby girl turned one 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! We love the photos!

Our pictures from Alfie's 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!

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. It's such a lovely way to celebrate babies first milestone birthday!

FAQ

Do You Provide The Cake?

When Should I Book?

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.

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!

What Should My Child Wear?

What Should I Bring?

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.

As well as providing the cake, you'll need to remember outfits, 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) and a towel for drying baby off after the splash!
