1st Birthday Celebration


A cake smash is a great way to express your child's unique personality in a relaxed and carefree way.

  • We start with some pre-smash portraits being taken of your child, capturing their many expressions.

  • We then introduce the cake. (To keep session costs down we ask for you to bring the cake)

  • After we've had lots of fun making a mess of the cake and getting covered,  we bring out the bubble bath!

This is another great way to not only clean your little one up afterwards but to capture some more portraits of them enjoying bath-time. 

We can provide outfits for the smash part or you're welcome to use your own.


Simply Classic Sessions are styled on gender colour backdrops: soft pink and lagoon blue, or you can choose from our neutrals range such as grey, cream or white. There is more focus on your little one with less distractions from decorations. These make timeless portraits that will suit any home decor.



in 3 easy steps


You can book as far in advance as you like, this ensures you get a date that suits you best.  
Most of our clients book before their child's birthday as images from their session are used to display at their baby's birthday party and used for Thank you Cards.  


The whole experience is tailored to you & your little one. We send you our parent questionnaire before hand so that on the day all thats left to do is to enjoy your time with us.
Bring  along a towel for the bath shots afterwards and don't forget the cake! We are going to create some amazing images that you'll treasure for years to come.


After your session we will invite you back to see your photo collection on the big screen. You will be presented with a slide show of your images and then we'll work together to select your favourites and choose how you'd like them presented.

Our Cake Smash Session Fee is £55 which covers our time in studio, editing and creativity.

You will receive a complimentary framed  portrait of your choice with additional products available at an extra charge. There is no obligation to purchase more, but should you wish to, orders of £250 or more will receive a refund of the session fee.

***Please note, only one image is provided as part of your session fee***

Framed Images from £85
Collections from £250
Wall Art from £300

We do not provide individual prints only as part of our collections.

There are different collections for different budgets, our entry level collection starts at £250 which consists of 5 printed images.

The range of what you could spend is quite broad, anywhere from £85 to £1000, and most people spend somewhere in the middle. No one knows what they’re going to want until they see the beauty that comes from their session.

There is never any obligation to purchase a package from us and there is definitely no pressure sales environment, the photo’s we capture truly sell themselves.
