Reasons why you should do a Cake Smash


1. It’s the celebration of a milestone- You’ve survived the first year of having a baby! It is your baby's first ever birthday! From your point of view, as mum and dad you want to do something that will celebrate this huge milestone in your baby's life but at the same time you want to make and keep memories of this special day so that you have something to look back on in years to come. A cake smash records this perfectly and captures their little (or big) personality that they have developed over the year and your photos are there forever for you to look on as they grow.

2. It's better than just a party- Why? ... because a cake smash is all about the birthday boy or girl...each of the three stages of a cake smash photoshoot is designed to provide your baby with a different multi sensory experience and to provide lots and lots of fun for them on their birthday. They'll be textures to feel and taste, bubbles to watch and pop, water to splash and lots of singing and dancing! It's unbeliveably interactive and just so much fun! And as an added bonus, unlike with a party, I organise every little details for your cake smash, and do all the cleaning up afterwards so you can just come and enjoy the experience with your little one rather than rushing around organising everything and spending your evening cleaning up. Combine this with the fact that a cake smash photo shoot will also leave you with wonderful professional photographs of your child to treasure forever and it's a no brainer....cake smashes rock!!

3. It's a fab experience for you to share with your baby - As a children's photographer, I cannot recommend doing a cake smash photoshoot enough because everyone always loves getting to watch how their little one year old will react to the cake and just how messy they will get! Some aren’t sure of the cake at first and take a bit of encouragement from mum or dad but some dive right in,face plant straight into it or push it off the stand and smash it up completely until it's in tiny crumbs all over the floor! The mess at the end is hilarious! Some cake smash sessions don’t make much mess, especially if baby decides they're stuffing their face with it all but sometimes it really does look like a bomb has gone off in the studio with bit of cake reaching the ceiling somehow!!!

4. And finally on a practical note....this is a great time to get photos before the terrible two’s!- Believe me when i say that two year olds can be so tough to photograph...as a mum of four i can say this with my hand on my heart...for one, they don't stay still for a second and boy oh boy are they changeable. One second they're sweet as candy and the next they're having a massive meltdown over something really silly. In comparison, one year olds are so much fun to photograph as they are still willing sit down for longer then two seconds and so they are engrossed in the cake that they often don't even notice the camera.

Photographing cake smash shoots is my favorite thing to do in the studio...and best of all i love it when i get to see newborns I had photographed again at their very own first birthday cake smashes! This little guy was one of my newborns a year ago and it was so fantastic to see just how much he'd grown and how smiley he was!
