Cake Smash Photography

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

“Kelly was full of energy and very patient… which resulted in some brilliant pictures”

Types of Sessions

I offer various sessions to suit budgets or interests, starting from just £50…

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

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”

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 daughter’s 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!”

What happens in a cake smash photo session?

All sessions begin with clean portraits of you little one: the 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 for splashing in the beautiful roll top baby bath.

Parents don’t have to do any clearing up of the mess, get to leave with a clean baby, and maybe some cake if you’re lucky. What’s not to love?!

Viewing your cake smash gallery and receiving the images

Around 2 weeks after your session, you are invited back to my studio in Aylesbury for a presentation viewing. 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 product samples when visiting my Aylesbury studio. I regularly welcome visitors from all over the UK and often have booking from Buckinghamshire and the surrounding counties of Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, and Berkshire.
