Cake Smash FAQs

What to bring/What to expect

A cake smash is normally booked for a childs 1st or 2nd birthday (or around that time). The session starts with a regular mini portrait session. Then comes the cake and your child will be able to let loose and make a mess!

I have a range of colourful backdrops to choose from and you may bring your own balloons or other decorations if you wish.

I have a small range of outfits and headbands for you to choose from but if you would like to bring an outfit of you own then please do so.

Please bring plenty of baby wipes! Cake smashes can get very messy, I can provide you with some wet cloths and towels but please bring your own baby wipes too.

Babies at this age tend to be very mobile so I will ask you to be close by the baby to sit them back down at the cake. This is for your babies safety as this is a studio environment so there will be lights and backdrops which could be pulled down. You might also want to wear something old as you will probably get covered in cake too.

At the end of the session I have a little tin bath which I can photograph the baby in. You may bring some bubble bath if you want to as this makes for very cute photos at the end.

The whole session will last between 1- 2 hours.
