Cake Smash Sessions in Gloucester

Celebrate your baby’s first birthday with a cake smash at my Gloucester photography studio. Let your little one loose with a cake all to themselves while I capture all the fun on camera (and clean up the mess afterwards!)! Or if you’d prefer something a little healthier, why not try a fruit smash – pick your child’s favourite fruits and let them go wild. With Messy Milestone sessions we can avoid the food altogether and just let them get downright dirty. The world is your oyster – just let me know what you’ve got in mind!

Why should I book a cake smash photography session with you?

Cake smash sessions are just a bit of fun to help your little ones celebrate their first few birthdays in style. I work with a really talented cake maker to create the look that you’re after for your baby’s milestone. And it’s not all about the cake because I can also offer fruit smashes or messy milestones which are fun sessions without the food!

You don’t need to book a thing until you’re happy with everything. We’ll have a chat on the phone (or even in-person) and make sure that we’re a good fit first.

Did you know I also like to support families in Gloucestershire who can’t afford the luxury of professional photography? With each package sold, I send £10 off to Gloucestershire Bundles and The Family Haven. Find out more here.

OK great, when should I book?

Whenever you’d like! Normally I’d expect to do cake smashes for a first or second birthday but there’s no hard and fast rules! If you’ve got a theme in mind then you’re best giving me a good four weeks’ notice so that I can get in whatever we need to give you the look you’re after!

What should I expect from the session?

After booking you’ll be sent a confirmation email explaining any useful titbits for your photo session and you’ll be invited to my home studio in Gloucester.

Cake smash sessions aren’t very long – maybe up to an hour. We’ll go at your baby’s pace to make sure they’re enjoying themselves. After the cake eating, we’ll do a dip in the tub and turn the cake smash into a fun splash session!

If you want, you can have a sneak peek of your session posted online the very same evening!

So how much does all this cost?

The cake, styling and photo session are completely free; you only pay for the final products you want to buy. Around two weeks after your session you’ll be invited back for your in-person photo viewing where you can choose from the packages below. In the unlikely event that you come along to your photo viewing and find that you don’t like any of your photographs, then you are under no obligation to buy.

If you don’t want to purchase one of my packages, bespoke orders are possible however they are subject to a minimum order of £199.

£100 deposit is required to secure your booking however this will be credited towards your final purchase. The deposit is non-refundable in the event of a no-show.
