Your baby is turning one! Time to celebrate!
Cake Smash sessions are a fantastic and a memorable way of capturing your little ones 1st birthday. Or 2nd, 3rd or even 13th birthday.
These are so much fun and maybe the only time you don’t mind your child getting messy and playing around with their food.
​​​​​​​For the session I provide the giant cupcake made by a professional baker and the outfit to go with the colours/theme you would like. You are more than welcome to bring your own outfit. Some people like to do personalised vests. If there is a specific theme you would like, let me know and I will do my best to match. An additional cost may occur.
All sessions start with a few portrait shots then we bring out the cake. This part is led by baby, and hopefully they smash it. If not, you can help a little and if there is any left, you can take it home.
After the smash part, they can get all cleaned up and have a little splash in my roll top bath. You even take them home all nice and clean.


Hayley photographed our little girl for her first birthday cake smash and was absolutely amazing. She made us both feel at ease and gave my little girl the time she needed to feel comfortable enough to get stuck in. The photos from the shoot are brilliant. A true memory captured! Thank you again we will definitely be back

So happy with the beautiful photos Hayley took.

Really impressed by her professionalism, talent and the speed that we received the photos in.

Already looking forward to booking her in the future.


When shall i book?

These normally take place around your little ones birthday. I recommend booking about a month in advance to make sure I have availability and that I can get your cake ordered in time. Most people book in 1-2 weeks before their little ones birthday so they are able to have the images back in time.

What do I need to bring?

​​​​​​​Just the birthday girl or boy and a towel for splash time. I will provide the rest. Some people prefer to bring their own outfits as they sometimes get personalised vests. I do have range of outfits as well so you are more than welcome to use mine.

Can I have any colour/theme?

Within reason, yes. When you book we will discuss what colours you would like. The set up includes the backdrop, decorations such as balloons and bunting all to match. If there was a particular theme you would like, this is not a problem but an additional charge might occur.

My baby can't have diary. Can I still have a Cake Smash session?

Yes of course you can. My professional baker is able to provide diary free cakes for your little one to enjoy. Other alternative sessions you can do to celebrate is with a fruit smash or a paint splash which these are just as fun. If you free more comfortable bringing your own cake, that is no problem.

What happens after the session?

After your session, I will carefully hand edit your images for you. These will be ready to view and download from your private online gallery within 2 weeks of your session.
