First Birthday Photography

Professional Cake Smash Photographer

cake smash photography session begins with a mini photo shoot. This provides an opportunity to capture some adorable photos of your baby in their clothes specially selected for the occasion. Then it's time for the fun to begin! Often at a cake smash photoshoot it is the first time most baby's have ever eaten cake. As a result kids love to dive right in covering their hair, body and face in birthday cake and sometimes even crawling through it.

Finally to deal with all the mess at the end of the cake smash I have a little tin tub for the baby to clean up, and photograph in. You may bring some bubble bath if you want to as this makes for very cute photos at the end.

Cake smash sessions are lots of fun for everyone involved and an experience most parents will never forget and is lots of fun for everyone involved.

With each cake smash photography session customer can expect a custom made cake from an award winning cake designer. Each customer's birthday cake is specially made to order for the prearranged cake smash session.
