Cake smash photography sessions started in America a few years ago, but the trend has since made its way to the UK and more specifically Glasgow. Cake smash photo shoots are a unique experience and are normally done around your child's first or second birthday just in time to be used for birthday party invitations or to mark this birthday milestone.

A cake smash photography session begins with a mini photo shoot allowing you to capture some lovely photos of your baby in their clothes you specially selected for the occasion. Then it's time for the fun to begin! Often at a cake smash it is the first time most children have ever eaten cake and often involves lots of fun with kids faceplanting, covering their hair, body and face in cake and sometimes even crawling through it.

To deal with this at the end I have a little tin bath 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.

It is an experience that most parents will never forget and is lots of fun for everyone involved.

A few cake smash photography questions answered

What is a cake smash

A cake smash is a fun and unique way to mark your baby’s first birthday. We begin the session with a mini portrait shoot, then we bring out the cake and let the baby loose on it. After all the fun and the mess I will bring out a little bath tub filled with bubbles to get the baby cleaned up and take some cute photos of them in the tub too.

Do you supply the cake?

Yes, the cost of the cake is included in the session fee.  If you would like a specific colour please let me know.

Do you supply the outfits for the cake smash?

Yes, I have a range of bespoke cake smash outfits that can be used or you can bring your own if you wish.

What if my baby is uncooperative on the day?

All sessions are baby led as children cannot be forced to perform. We will take breaks when we have to and I will do everything I can to provide you with a full gallery. If in the event that I cannot provide you with at least 5 unique images then we will reschedule your appointment.

Can parents and siblings be photographed with the baby during a cake smash?

Cake smash sessions are focused on your baby. If you would like to include other family members I would recommend a Family photography session instead.

Do you require a deposit?

To book your cake smash photography session I require a deposit. The deposit is the full session fee please see my cake smash prices for further information. Cake Smash Photography Prices
