Cake Smash - a Messy Play in Style

Cake Smash Photographer in Aldermaston, Reading Basingstoke

Congratulations, your baby is ONE!

There is nothing else more exciting than the baby's first birthday and it is so hard to believe it has been a whole year already! So many changes, milestones, ups and downs, nappies, teething, sleepless nights... but you finally made it!


Treating your baby and yourself with a first cake smash fun is a very exiting experience and a celebration that will be remembered for years! Although it is not a party for friends and family as such, this session is designed for parents and the baby to have lots of fun, explore new tastes and textures as the little one tucks into a yummy homemade cake. It is also a perfect way not only to celebrate their first birthday in style but to capture their personalities and leave with lots of cute images that will be cherished for years.

If you think your little one may be a little shy we can offer a mini cake only session but even if you think that the new more is less, we kindly insist that you book BOTH - a cake smash and splish splash splosh time in a warm bubbly bath after the cake!


If for any reason you think the cake is not an option we are more than happy to set for a cupcake, donut or fruit smash for you :)


It is best if your session is booked at least 1-3 months in advance although I may be able to accommodate last minute session too.


You can book your session online or contact me with your preferred session date and theme before booking. 

We may not have all the themes on display but let us know your vision and we will do our best to accommodate it.


A non refundable session fee of £150 needs to be paid to secure your session date. The session fee includes your session time, photographer's creativity, use of props, equipment and studio, personalised decorations and editing of your final gallery - it does not include any images or products. but will be deducted from your final package fee.



If you wish to order a styled cake via our cake maker there is an extra charge of £35 for the cake which will go directly to the third party. The cake needs to be booked well in advance and is subject to allergies and availability.

1-3 weeks after your session you will be invited back to the studio for your in person viewing/ordering appointment. You will have an opportunity to select your package and choose your favourite images from your final gallery. In addition to the digital images you will also be able to order professional prints, albums and bespoke wall art products. We highly recommend our bespoke collage frame for cake smash displays which can include multiple images in its layout. Other products such as albums, Grandparents Gifts, etc are available too.

The price list for the prints/wall art/albums will be available at your session and viewing/ordering appointment.
