What better way to celebrate your baby’s birthday than smashing a big cake!
Your child turning ONE?! The first birthday is one of the biggest milestones. Celebrating it with a cake smash photography session is the perfect sentiment. Let a photographer, at Lavender Hill Photography, capture those adorable moments as your child has fun with his/her personalized first birthday session. We will put together the best 1st birthday memories & cake smash photos you’ll cherish forever! Schedule your cake smash photography session!
Your Cake Smash is tailored to your baby’s favorite things so you can have it decorated to match their bedroom and everything they love. Or, you can keep it very simple and organic like in the photo above)
We have lots of fun during these sessions. A few images of your little one will be taken before the cake comes out so they are familiar with the camera and me. Then, the cake comes in and we get smashing! So you’ll get a good mix of images that you can use for announcements, invites or thank you cards as well as for framed prints or you can purchase the retouched digital images.
Cake smash shoots are suitable for 1 year olds & 2 year olds. If you have twins or even triplets (yikes!) then contact the studio.
Prep for the shoot is very simple: pick a cute outfit and accessories that fits the theme you’d like. Allow time to clean up your little one afterwards, we provide towels and paper but bring your preferred wipes. Accessories and items can be hand-washed at the studio before you leave. Feel free to bring a doggy bag if you want a slice of cake to take home.

I also get this question a lot:
Can I Assume the Baby Will Always Dig In?
So, I will try to answer it here. We need to remember the baby is just one year old, and is often shy of exploring a new texture, shape or taste. Especially when surrounded by adults making funny noises and clapping to distract them. My suggestion is that parents practice at home, before the session, with a cupcake, for example. Icing on top, preferably the same colors, and a similar environment i.e. everyone sits on the floor. This isn’t a foolproof solution, but it can give good results. Also, this practice may help uncover any allergies not known to parents earlier.
Now let me know what other questions you have? I am more than happy to extend my guideline for Cake Smash sessions!
