What is a Cake Smash and what's included?

Updated: Apr 29, 2019

Cake Smash Session's are one of our most popular sessions... but some people are still unsure what a cake smash is or whats involved.... Originally a fun trend in the US, cake smash photography is now very popular in the UK.

So what is it?

A Cake Smash Session is a fun way to celebrate your child's 1st, 2nd or 3rd birthday. The studio is set up with balloons, banners and decorations and the child is presented with a handmade delicious birthday cake, ready to hit, break and smash to pieces, hence the name "Cake Smash", this followed by a warm bubble bath to clean up. Whilst all this is happening a professional photographer is capturing all the messy and fun moments for the parents to keep and treasure forever!

Whats included in our Cake Smash Sessions?

So we have 2 cake smash packages at our studio.

  1. Cake Smash Only - 1 Hour Session, pre-cake smash photoshoot & cake time.

  2. Cake Smash & Splash - 1 Hour 15 mins Session, pre-cake smash photoshoot, cake & bubble bath time.

Both sessions include:

  • Pre-cake smash photoshoot session, this is a photoshoot session that takes place without the cake and the choice of 2 outfit changes. (Parents and siblings may also be photographed at this point).

  • Cake smash time in your child cake smash outfit.

  • Balloons, banners, decorations and a handmade cake.

  • 1 10x8" Complimentary Print.

  • 4 High Resolution Digital Images with Print Release.

  • A private online gallery of your images (around 40-60 in total). The gallery will be live for 7 days for you to enjoy & make your selections.

Please Note - Outfits are NOT included in our cake smash packages.

So if your child's birthday is coming up, why not celebrate their milestone with a fun and messy play cake smash session in our relaxed and welcoming studio.
