Cake Smash Sessions

Big stories start with small chapters. Celebrate your baby’s first birthday with a deliciously fun cake smash.

Cake Smash & Paint Splash

Cake or paint, 1st or 2nd birthday? You decide

Cake Smashes are a perfect way to celebrate your baby’s birthdays and I love them! Each cake smash is personalised to you and love to hear your ideas for the session.

If your child is a little older and prefers paint, then why not enjoy a paint splash session instead? Get your favourite colours out and see the magic happen in front of your very own eyes, and my camera.

Your baby’s 1st birthday is special

It’s no small achievement for you and your baby. You are about to celebrate their very first year on Earth. A year you spent your time watching them sit up for the first time, reach out to hold your face. You fed them their first bite to eat and laughed as they spread their food all over their face.

You’ve held their hand and encouraged them to take their first steps; played with their toy, singing nursery rhymes to them. You’ve survived the sleepless nights. As parents you’ve shown your baby the start of what’s to come and this day should be celebrated. Book your cake smash session to mark the special occasion.

Kirsty put us at ease the minute we arrived at her studio, she really made it feel like a home from home for us and our 1 year old.
She managed to capture amazing moments during our mini family shoot and our cake smash session for our daughter.
We highly recommend her and look forward to using her services again in the future. Amy x

What To Expect

Upon booking your older babies session we discuss the theme and confirm ideas. All decoration is included in the cake smash and paint splash packages as well as a professionally made cake (allergies are catered for). All you need to arrive with is an outfit for your child and a few snacks to hide in the cake if needed.

The session starts with a mini family session, siblings can be included and a few of the birthday child alone pre cake smash mess!

Sometimes children are wary of the cake, so lots of singing, dancing, clapping often gets them  smiling and tucking in. If not, a few snacks gently encourages them to get messy!

Once the cake is smashed, a splash in the mini bath follows. Splashing is encouraged!

Images are edited within 4 weeks of the session and added to an online password protected album, a minimum of 20 images are included for you to print as you please.

All packages include a non-refundable £50 booking fee to secure your place.
