Your gallery will consist of 25 to 55 Images to Purchase from.
You can book as far in advance as you like, this ensures you get a slot that suits you best. Most of my clients book before their baby’s birthday as images from their session are used to display at their baby’s birthday party and used for Thank you Cards. We also have a selection of thank you cards you can purchase from to print yourself. This can be included with the rest of your purchased digital files.
Please bring a change of clothes for the both of you, as the icing can quite literally get everywhere. A few of your child’s favourite toys may also be a good idea too for comforting and distracting them at the beginning of the session.
A cake smash photo session is a fun, joyful way to commemorate the milestone of your little one’s first birthday. Capture your baby’s surprise, curiosity and delight as they tear into their first taste of sugar. A cake smash is a great way to express your baby’s unique personality in a relaxed and carefree way.
Finally, we end with your baby wrapped in a towel all cozy and clean! These pictures look darling in your bathroom!

Pottery Barn Monique Lhuillier White Birch Tree Cake Smash –
A Cake Smash is the perfect celebration of a first, second or even third birthday. Here at the Cass Davies Photography studio I offer fun Cake Smash photoshoots for your baby – lots of Mums & Dads love to come in on baby’s birthday morning as part of the days festivities & I’m honored to share in that time creating memories.
Please remember that their clothing will end up covered in icing so don’t dress them in something that you would be upset if it got ruined.
Smashes are very popular & should be booked around 4-8 weeks in advance all though we may have shorter notice availability – please enquire. Smashes are available on weekdays. A £45 deposit secures your date with the balance due on the day, any reschedule required after the cake has been made will incur a fee to replace the cake.
Below are an example of both cakes, standard cake on the left £30 one colour or £35 Ombre OR on the right a Giant Cupcake with your baby’s name on it £55.
We start with some pre-smash portraits being taken of your child, capturing their many expressions. We then introduce the cake. You can choose a cake from our A La Carte price list or you can bring your own. Please see Pricing for cakes in the Price Guide page. If your child has any allergies we recommend you bring in your own cake.
It’s up to you and can be as casual or dressy as you like. Most people choose to bring along a couple of outfits, usually one for the ‘pre-cake’ portraits and the other for the “Cake Smash” itself. I love bare bellies on little ones for the “cake smash” teamed with tutus, a onesie or jeans. Feel free to dress and accessorize your child however you please. If your looking for something special and unique a great place to try is Esty and Facebook.
