Cake Smash 1

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.

“A-Fotografy was recommended to us by a number of people in Edinburgh and we were not disappointed!! We wanted some pictures that captured our little boys milestone. Armands is brilliant with children! He just made him giggle the entire time which made for some great pics!"

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

Three stages of cake smash photoshoot.

  • Baby and family photos first. At the beginning of the session we spend a bit time to get to know each other. We do normal baby portraits, family photos and siblings. Check baby photography work here.
  • Second stage is bringing out actual cake and letting baby to smash it and dig in properly. No stops here, messier, better.
  • The last stage of the photo sessions is Buble bath. We let baby to splash and go wild. Very often this is the most fun part for babies.

Cake Smash Photography

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

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.

    Cake Smash: What to expect

    -  Your photo session will last as long as we need to create beautiful artwork for you. Each baby is different and reacts in own way to strangers. It could be one hour, it could be several. -  Before I start taking photographs, we have some settling-in time so we can get to know each other better. My aim is for you to feel comfortable and relaxed. - Mummy and Daddy, please be ready to make lots of funny noises to get your rascal happy. Bring any favourite toys, blankets, snacks and dummies so that we have them to hand if needed. - Expect your session to be loaded with activity and energy. I aim to make the sessions lively and fun – a great experience for everyone. - Expect to get involved in the photos yourself – yes, really! If you aren’t comfortable in front of the camera, don’t worry. I can guide and advise you on how to stand, where to look and how to interact with your partner and baby. The aim is to create natural, loving portraits that capture you as a family unit. I’ll aim to take individual mum/dad shots with the baby, and I’ll involve your other children if you have them, and even pets too! -  The end goal of your photo shoot is for you to have a beautiful collection of photos to share with loved ones, liven up your living room or to make a beautiful heirloom album.P.S. I’d recommend you don’t make lots of plans for the day of your photoshoot. Yes, you’ll be pleasantly tired and your cheeks will hurt after all that smiling and make goofy noises!
