Cake Smash

Cake smash photoshoot West Sussex and Hampshire.

Bring your one year old along to record their growth at this important time in their life. Your little one may be standing, walking or crawling by the time they are one, this time is precious to you and needs to be recorded for you to look back on in years to come.  This is the time for you to book in for their cake smash photoshoot.


You get –


20 minutes standard studio time for some gorgeous photos of you little one in the set up, 20 minutes cake smash fun and 20 minutes splash (in our tin bath).  You can bring your own cake or one can be provided for you by a local baker (at extra cost).  Set ups are individual to your child, and the colour scheme you would like.


Why cake smash?

A cake smash photoshoot shows the true character of your baby, it displays their fun and inquisitive side, as well as their thoughtful and happy side.  During the hour I will capture the many different expressions that your child can make, so that in years to come you can remember how they pulled a certain face or the smile of enjoying a splash in the bath tub.


Charlie’s cake smash photoshoot – West Sussex specialist cake smash photographer.



Charlie’s Mum and Dad brought him to see me here in Bognor Regis (West Sussex), for a fun filled and rather messy cake smash.  Charlie was going to be one in a few week’s time, and Mum wanted the images to be ready for the big day.  Mum had bought his gorgeous little outfit for the cake smash part of the photoshoot herself, so again I knew what colours I needed to use to make sure everything went well together.  This time I opted for stripy blue tissue flowers to match the stripes of his outfit, along with baby blue bunting and two tone blue helium filled balloons.


Mum chose for us to have a cake baked especially for the photoshoot from a local baker Cakealushus


The photoshoot

Cake smash photoshoots are run in a one hour studio session.  this time is divided between – 20 minutes standard studio session, 20 minutes cake smash, 20 minutes splash in the that bath tub.  Mum brought along some gorgeous smart clothes for Charlie to wear during the standard part of the session, and then changed him into his cake smash outfit for the messy fun bit.  His favourite part of the shoot was the splash at the end (as you can see by the smiles!)



These sessions can be very messy, please do not worry! I run them on background paper, which means that after each session I can cut off the messy bit and the next piece is always clean for the next session.


I hope you had an amazing first birthday Charlie, and hope to see you all again.

Arez’s cake smash photoshoot- Cake-smash-photography-west-sussex.


In November I had a visit from Arez and his lovely family.  They had chosen for him to come and have a cake smash photoshoot, here with me in Bognor Regis (West Sussex). I had a few online chats with his Mum to find out what she wanted for the photoshoot itself.  Mum had already bought him an outfit to wear for the cake smash part of the photoshoot,  so having seen some photos of it, I was able to arrange the bunting and other decorations to match perfectly (I stumbled across the lovely lady who made the outfit and bought the bunting to match it).


The photoshoot

As standard for my cake smash shoots, the session ran as – 20 minute standard shoot, 20 minutes cake smashing fun, and then 20 minutes getting cleaned up and having fun splashing in the bath.

Arez was a little hesitant to get stuck in to the cake (which is very, very normal), but after a few minutes he warmed up to the idea and even had a helping hand from his big brother too!

His favourite section was definitely the splash section at the end which you can see from his lovely smiling shots below!  I always ask parents to bring along baby’s usual bubble bath to the photoshoot, which helps baby to feel comfortable in the splash section of the cake smash.

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog post about an amazing West Sussex family photoshoot.

Back in September the lovely Siobhan came along to see me with her gorgeous family.  Her little girl had not long turned one and had been given a photoshoot voucher for her Birthday.  This was an hour photoshoot and included photos of the whole family, and some of their little girl on her own.  We managed to get some lovely relaxed photo of them all during the session.  I think you will agree they make a cute little family!

An hour’s photoshoot costs £65, images are then purchased separately at a viewing session roughly two weeks after the photoshoot.  Please do contact me if you would like any more information or to book a photoshoot.

A photoshoot at any age or stage of your little one’s life is so worthwhile.  At this age they grow so quickly.  Trust me to take you some amazing photographs that you are going to treasure for the future.  That way you can remember just how small they were, and all the expressions they used to make.

Thank you for reading,

Ever wondered what a cake smash is like? Read on and you will see the fun and laughs that come with a first Birthday cake smash shoot.


Cake smash shoots are an hour long at my home studio in Bognor Regis, West Sussex.

I always start  off the shoot with standard studio photos so you can have mess free photos in your gallery too! Next up is the cake, you can bring your own (as this family did) or I can provide one for you for an extra charge.


It took a few minutes for this little one to get his hands in, but once he did he was a happy little boy.


The next phase of the shoot is clean up! This involves me scraping lots of cake and icing off the floor! Then we get out the baby bath and I can get some cute photos of the clean up.


Now for some photos from this gorgeous little man’s session. We had lots of photos for the lovely family to choose from, here are a few.
