What is a Cake Smash Photoshoot?

A cake smash is to celebrate a child’s first birthday. The concept is to capture your child’s reactions as they explore and play with a birthday cake. We place a sticky decorated cake in front of your child and allowing them to interact with it freely.

During the photoshoot, they are encouraged to touch, taste, and play with the cake, often resulting in a messy and playful scene. We’ll capture our child’s genuine reactions, expressions, and gestures, creating memorable and adorable photographs.

How Much Does a Cake Smash Photoshoot Cost?

The photoshoot is just £30 including the cake. We have all the costumes, backgrounds & props for your use, creating amazing birthday memories for your child. You are at no time under any obligation to purchase any of your images from your shoot, however if you love what you see our packages start at £249.

Our studio is easy to find in Stoke Road Gosport, with free care parking and just a short drive from Fareham, Portsmouth, Havant or Waterlooville. The photoshoot will typically last for about an hour. During that time, you may get messy, so you may want to bring a change of clothes for yourself.

What Can I Buy When I View the Photographs?

Cake smash packages start at £249 for a set of five mounted photographs in a deluxe box, elegantly inscribed with your child’s name & birthday date or 5 digital images. For those seeking a larger selection, the ten digital option is £299.  Our most popular package is a 20-page personalised luxury cake smash album, priced at £599. This package includes the digital images and a print of each photograph in your album for you to share your precious memories.
