Ari makes so much mess

Ari and his amazing cake smash shoot

One of our recent cake smash shoots will be forever memorable as the messiest ever cleanup haha. Ari came along for his first birthday cake smash and splash photoshoot and brought his bigger sister along too. We started with our super popular portrait adfd on so we took some lovely photos of the 2 of them, Parents did not want to join in today but they could have.  After lots of portrait photos together and on their own we got ready for the main event.

Once Ari was ready we popped him in front of the cake and almost immediately carnage happened haha he started to smash the cake, our walls, our bunting everything ūüėÜ it was fabulous and so much fun. Just like a first birthday photoshoot should be, in fact just like every birthday photoshoot should be ūüėÉ

After Ari was done his sister joined for some cake fun and then the big clean up, Actually the cleanup is easy so we popped him in the bath and let him enjoy the bubbles whilst we got some more amazing photos.

The best part is, we supply the babies cake smash outfit (unless you want to bring your own) and we supply the cake and we do all the cleanup too, Well Sue does haha.

Another fabulous photoshoot. Our cake smash shoots cost ¬£200 including the cake and all of the digital photos, not just a selection but all of them ūüôā Check our pricing info here


Our Splash time in our lovely baby bath. So OK its not all about the cake…………

Sometimes if the babies don’t really go for the cake it’s not a problem because we encourage them to enjoy it. Today of course we did not need to but if thats the case then they generally love the bath time in our beautiful little roll top bath especially imported from our pals in Texas.
