Cake smash – milestone photography – child portrait


Celebrating a 1st birthday with a cake smash

Have you ever wondered what a cake smash birthday session is? Let me take you through the fun of what a session looks like…

I have been photographing cake smash photosessions for a few years now, which took place in my home, all set up with flooring and simple props. I am still a fan of simplicity as I like the focus to be all on the baby; the 1st birthday is such a milestone. Sessions now take place in my own dedicated photography studio which I am thrilled about!

My studio is based in Aylesbury, Bucks, and I specialise mostly in newborn and family photography, including milestone photography of sitter sessions and cake smash photosessions.

Here I share what a cake smash session is like for anyone who questions either what one is, or is considering a photosession to celebrate the 1st birthday of their little one.

You won’t regret it.

My sessions include birthday portraits, the cake smashing itself (cake provided to match a chosen set theme – find a selection of these on my cake smash page here), and a tub splash to clean up in the beautiful Gatsby clawfoot baby bath.  Your little one will have SO much fun in this session; it is the perfect way to document that very first special birthday.

I would love to hear from you if you have a little one soon to be turning one. Get in touch by email –

Cake smash sessions are usually booked 2-3 months in advance to ensure availability of both myself and my baker, but I may have wiggle room so do pop me a message about dates.
