Cake Smash Photography Session

A cake smash session is an absolutely wonderful way to celebrate a birthday or get memorable photographs of your baby!

The images taken at a cake smash session are unique, memorable, and make incredible decor and gifts for your home and family.

Cake smashes are fun for baby and parents, and provide a unique opportunity to capture your baby’s curiosity and personality at a young age.

Many clients choose a cake smash session for documenting baby’s first birthday, while others see the session itself as the special occasion! It is our pleasure to work with you and your family to craft a special photo experience just for your baby.

What to expect

For the safety and comfort of everyone involved, we like to let baby set the pace of a cake smash session. The whole session will normally last up to an hour and the cake smashing part can last only a few minutes, while others may take more time.

Ideally, baby will dig right into the cake and go all-out, but more often than not things may need a little nudge from mum and dad. Sometimes baby won’t interact with the cake at all, and having a parent there to engage and encourage can make a world of difference. Be ready for a bit of a mess!

What to Wear

Choosing an outfit for baby is one of the most enjoyable parts of planning a cake smash session! Your photographer, Zsofi will advise you and help you choosing an outfit to create a beautiful cohesive look.

Choosing a Cake

The most important item needed for a cake smash session is the cake itself, and not just any cake! We have teamed up with one of Edinburgh’s top cake makers to produce unique Giant Cupcakes for smashing that look beautiful and taste great too! Some babies may have special dietary needs as well, making it important to select a cake that keeps your bundle of joy happy and healthy.

Cleaning Up

What better way to end the session than a fun bubble bath for your little one. Who doesn’t love bubbles?
