Cake Smash & Splash


Celebrate a first birthday with a Cake Smash & Splash. Let us capture the moment as your little one dives into a messy celebration of their birthday.

The Cake Smash & Splash is a photo shoot that’s just the epitome of fun, celebration and joy. Not only that, it’s mess that you don’t need to clean up!

This unique concept is an ideal way to celebrate your baby’s first birthday. We sit your baby amongst a stunning backdrop which you will have decided on beforehand. We can give you 80+ designs to choose from or we can work with your own ideas to make sure the design and colour scheme is exactly what you want.

This is an incredible photo shoot to experience, so get your beautiful baby into their Sunday best and we’ll take some pictures that you will treasure forever.

Firstly, we take pictures of your baby on their own with the backdrop, followed by some with large letters spelling ONE in front of them, then onto the messiest part with the cake.

Watch your little one dive into the cake and enjoy themseleves whilst we capature the moment. This isn’t just great fun for your baby, you will find yourself an amused and overjoyed spectator too.

Once the cake has been suitably smashed, it’s bath time. We bring in the specially designed, gorgeous roll-top Victorian style bathtub and take some final shots of your baby splashing around. Of course, when it comes to the final pictures, we will ensure your child’s modesty.

We provide towels too so you can dry them off and take them home as clean as they arrived – it’s a good idea to bring some spare clothes. The whole session should last about an hour.

Apart from the outfits that you want your baby photographed in, with the Cake Smash & Splash we include everything in the price.

We source the cake from a specialist local baker.  The striking balloon garland that will make up part of your set is custom made for you, along with a personalised cake topper all of  which you can take with you after the shoot to add to your birthday decorations at home – just make sure there’s room in the car!

Once you have left to enjoy the rest of your day, we get busy with the editing to make sure that the 12-15 digital images that you will receive are a perfect reflection of your child’s birthday. These are available to download from the onlline gallery,  where possible on the same day.

Until recently, the Cake Smash was only available to babies, but why should they have all the fun?!  That’s why we now offer the Cake Smash for two and three-year-olds and also for grown-ups if you don’t want to miss out.

A canvas montage is available of your favourite images from the shoot,  for an additional cost, so please ask for details.

My child has allergies with Cake

No problem, we can do a jelly smash, fruit (watermelon looks good) or a pie smash; whatever their allergies or intolerances we can accommodate their needs; just let us know in advance of the photoshoot so we can make everything perfect for their special event!




  • Very professional with fantastic photos taken. Mandy works around the baby which I loved she didn't push any poses if my little boy was unhappy with any positions she tried something he was more comfortable with. She is very patient and is happy for the shoot to take as long as necessary to get the best picture. Highly recommended!
