Cake Smash & Splash

A delightful and fun experience for both parents and children

Great for babies and toddlers alike, but most popular for 1st birthday photos. A cake smash is exactly what it sounds like! Your little one, dressed in their finest – sat before a beautiful cake for them to smash, destroy and pull apart!

What’s involved in a Cake Smash and Splash?

A cake smash and splash is a fun and popular way to celebrate a child’s first birthday (or just capture some beautiful photos). It involves setting up a creative or colourful backdrop, with props to match, and letting the little one go wild with a cake. The cake becomes the centerpiece of the shoot, and the child gets to enjoy it as much as possible, by smashing it with their hands, feet, or face. After the fun is over, the child gets a bath and the photographer captures the splashy aftermath. It’s a fantastic way to capture the child’s emerging personality and creates memorable images for a family keepsake. The shoot usually lasts from 60 to 90 minutes, and the experience is both enjoyable and unforgettable.

  • Outfit and decorations provided
  • Themed around the cake
  • Make sure the cake looks exciting for your child – maybe a character they love or just bright colours
  • If your little one isn’t keen on messy hands, plastic utensils and wooden spoons can make great play tools
