Cake Smash

Cake Smash sessions in my home studio in Aylesbury

Your little one has grown and reached their first birthday milestone, and every birthday should involve cake….. this just must be documented!

Some of my set designs:


It so wonderful to have little ones come back after a newborn or sitter session, or just coming to me for the first time, to celebrate their birthday. I work closely with the incredibly talented Kristina’s cakery to create perfectly matched cakes; she always produces exceptional results.

These sessions are so much fun! We start with some beautiful birthday portraits in a dedicated chosen set to match their personality or favourite colour. The cake then joins the set and the wide eyed look of those little people is delightful to watch them realise that this cake is all for them! We let them deconstruct the cake and make lots of mess, getting super sticky fingers and toes. Some children pick carefully and daintily at the icing, scoop scooping with precision. Others go straight in, grabbing handfuls and mooshing it all over their faces! We finish up with a splash in the tub, cleaning off and enjoying some bubbles to blow and catch.

Oh, and the best bit… clear up is left to me! What is not to love?!

A whole lot of fun to remember their 1st birthday; a cake smash photo session!

Any questions, pop me a message. I would love to capture the joy of celebrating a 1st birthday!
