Cake Smash

Fun and messy involving chocolate cake to create unique images

Do you have a baby that loves cake?

A unique service involving cake and a lot of mess!

During the photo shoot your little one will be encouraged to dig in, eat as much cake as the parents allow and make as much mess as possible - the result are great fun and lively images.

Cake Smash Photography is the fun & creative way to capture the milestone of your little one turning 1 (or thereabouts).

We can provide the cake if requested or for something more personal why not bake something special (just make sure that it's really gooey!)

Frequently asked questions about our service

Q: How should I prepare for a Cake Smash Shoot?

A: First of all talk to your little one, explain what is going to happen and the fun that they are going to have. Prepare your cake, as gooey as possible! Remember this is a cake for photos, add extra frosting, cream etc and have some extra goo standing by. Your Photographer will arrive with backdrops, lights and props. Dress your little one in something really cute that you don't mind getting cake on and have plenty of towels, flannels or wet wipes ready!

Q: Where will my Cake Smash Photo Shoot take place?

A: Your photographer will arrive with all the back drops, lights and props for your Cake Smash photo shoot and just needs some space to set up - this can be in your lounge, bedroom or wherever you feel is appropriate. However part of the skill of your photographer is to also use what they find inside your home once they arrive and therefore with permission may use any props that they find - using such items makes the resulting images even more personal to you. It may also be possible not to use the Cake Smash backdrop if your kitchen is suitable for use - you're Photographer will discuss this with you if appropriate but in the end you decide.   

Q: Is a Cake Smash Suitable for more than 1 baby?

A: Twins, triplets etc are of course more than welcome for our Cake Smash photo shoots - other siblings can be included in a few of the shoots if required but the main focus will be on the one baby having the Cake Smash photo shoot. Babies from other families / parents cannot be included - they will need to book their own Cake Smash photo shoot!

Q: Can I leave my baby alone with the Photographer?

A: We ask that at least one parent remains with your new born baby at all times - this also applies to any other siblings present at the photo shoot.

Q: When will I see my photos?

A: Once the Photographer has finished your photo shoot, they will need a short time to upload the images onto their iPad, make selections and run a few filters. This is your chance for a quick break - after approximately 15 minutes the photographer will be ready to show you the best of your images. You will be shown a slideshow of these images and after that you can make your selections. Once you have made your selections your Photographer will email you an upload link in order for you to receive your high resolution images - your Photographer will ask you to confirm that you have received these images before departing. Please note that this is your only opportunity to view your images and make your selections - any additional images to those that have been pre-paid for will need to be paid for at this time, by debit or credit card.

Q: How long will it take?

A: We aim for your Photographer to be with you for around 2 hours. During this time they will set up, run the photo shoot, show you your images and then send you your upload link to allow you to access your purchased images. Please note that your photographer will not be able to return at a later date in order for you to have a second look at your images and therefore all purchases must be made during this time.

Q: Once I have my images, how do I get them printed?

A: We offer a whole host of printing services at extremely competitive prices via this web site. These include loose prints, framed pieces, wall canvasses and photo albums. Please follow the tab at the top of this page to view these options. 

Q: What is your cancellation policy?

A: Once booked unless there are exceptional circumstances we are unable to offer any refunds, however we can alter any bookings with a minimum of 48 hours notice - this includes changing to an alternative type of photo shoot or altering time/date (subject to availability). Alterations with less than 48 hours notice will be completely at the company's discretion and will not always be possible.
