FACT: Babies are happiest when they are covered in food.

I’ve done cake smash photoshoots since 2013 and have been privileged to meet so many beautiful babies during that time. Crawling around the floor making funny noises, making a fool of myself, and having fun with your little one is what I enjoy most about my job as a photographer.

Babies just love to explore their world through touch and taste. This is why cake smash photoshoots are really popular! Cake smash portraits are great fun and are a fantastic way of capturing incredibly cute baby photos.

WATCH how much fun it could be during a cake smash photo session.

Three stages of cake smash photoshoot.

1. Baby and family photos first. At the beginning of the session, we spend a bit of time getting to know each other. We do normal baby portraits, family photos and siblings. Check baby photography work here

2. Bringing out the actual cake and letting baby smash it and dig in properly. No stops here, messier, better.

3. The last stage of the photo sessions is the bubble bath. We let the baby splash and go wild. Very often this is the most fun part for babies.

Digging their little hands into their very own cake. Making as much of a mess as possible is the name of the game here! But, don’t worry, I do all the cleaning up afterwards.
