Cake Smash Photography

Cake Smash photography in Buckinghamshire – Aylesbury studio

Documenting a 1st birthday with a cake smash photography session is so much fun! These milestone sessions involve lots of planning, and are best scheduled for 10 or 11 months old, and ideally 8 weeks in advance of the desired date.  

Twin brother and sister in a baby bath tub. Christmas theme backdrop. Red berries and fake snow around the base of the baby bath.

Birthday splash session – tub only on a choice of background – great for a mess free experience but water fun!

“The images were just stunning of the twins…. True keepsakes. I would highly recommend”

Smash and splash – the most popular session – cake smash and tub clean up! Choose from a selection of set options.

“We had the most amazing experience with Kelly for our daughters first birthday cake smash photo shoot! From booking the session right through to collecting the photos Kelly was very professional but also made you feel at ease too!”


Custom smash and splash – individually designed custom set, cake smash, tub splash and family portraits included.

“The photo session was very baby led and the results are amazing, I would definitely book in again to have more photos taken by Kelly.”


What happens in a cake smash photo session?

All sessions begin with clean portraits of your little one; a perfect opportunity to mark a milestone with a timeless classic image. The cake (made by a local baker and included in the session fee) is introduced, and your child can enjoy tasting, touching and making a mess with the cake. Even if your little one isn’t keen on making much mess, I always get some smiles when we finish the trio set of portraits with a time of splashing in the beautiful roll top baby bath.

Parents don’t have to do any clearing up of the mess and get to leave with a clean baby! What’s not to love!?

Get in touch for session prices for your cake smash photography session and together, we can start planning the perfect set design for your child’s first birthday celebration!

Viewing your cake smash gallery and receiving the images

Around 2 weeks following the session, you are invited back to my photography studio in Aylesbury for a presentation viewing and at this appointment you can choose from the print collections and wall art options available. There is something to suit every budget, and a product to compliment every preference; the presentation print box is a popular favourite.

You can view the product samples when visiting my Aylesbury studio. I regularly welcome visitors from all over the UK and often have bookings from all over Buckinghamshire and the surrounding counties of Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, and Berkshire.
