A cake smash is such a fun way to celebrate and mark your babies 1st birthday.

It’s a lot like baby sensory really, but rather than letting them loose with paints or play dough, they’re presented with a delicious birthday cake, yum!

Some get really into the spirit of the cake smash and get stuck in, while others gently prod the icing and delicately nibble. Either way you’ll love seeing their individual personalities shine through when they’re presented with the yummy birthday cake. My style is simple and natural, so I tend to use special birthday 'one' letters, and maybe some white balloons or flowers. Other than that though, we keep it focused on your little birthday baby!

At the end of the day, for me the core point of a cake smash session is for your baby to have a fantastic time. We’ll start by taking some 'studio' shots - clean images that aren't neccessarily birthday themed but keepsakes of your baby. Then out comes the cake, we'll be singing, playing and generally just having lots of fun, plus I capture all of your babies smiles and excitement on camera so you have beautiful photos to treasure. After that, i have a beautiful vintage roll top bath, imported from australia, for baby to splash in! They make the most beautiful bathroom displayed photo's and the babies always enjoy this part the most! Plus - you take home a clean, and no doubt tired, baby! Win win!

Cake smashes are really such a lovely way to document your babies first ever birthday! You only get a first birthday once, after all!
