Stevenage Newborn & Family Photographer | Everything you need to know about Cake Smash Sessions | featuring Anna

Cake Smash sessions have become a very popular way to celebrate your little one turning one. There are so many different ways to hold these sessions. I know lots of photographers who do themed sessions such as Disney, rainbow, dinosaurs etc. I know some photographers who hold these sessions in the clients home as a lifestyle session and I know others who hold them outdoors. Personally I keep away from themes and stick to the more minimalist, clean and classic look. I do not want your images to look dated over the years. Most sessions take place in my home studio using a white backdrop roll and some simple decoration, usually stars or flowers. I am also happy to hold lifestyle cake smash sessions in your own home.


When should I book my session? 

I usually only take 2/3 Cake Smash bookings per month due to keeping spaces available for pre-booked newborn clients. The sooner you book the better. We rarely take bookings with less than 5/6weeks notice

What is included in the £299 fee and do you have any other packages available?

I have found it is much easier to just have one all inclusive package for this type of session where everything is included and there are no extra costs after your session. Included in the fee..

1 Hour Session in three parts


Cake & Simple Decorations in your choice of colour

25 Portraits will be enhanced and supplied to you as high resolution digital files with print release

10 X 7”X5” Lustre Prints

Do you offer any discounts?

Anyone who has had a newborn session with myself is entitled to a 10% discount off the package fee.

Can we have some family portraits too?

Yes. There are 3 sections to this session. The first 15 minutes are for clean and classic portraits either of little one on their own, with a sibling or with the family. The second 15minute section is the Cake Smash followed my section 3 which is the bath. The sections are only 15 minutes each as one year olds have a very short attention span so get bored pretty quickly!

Can we have a custom cake?

Custom Cakes are an optional extra with enough notice. There is an additional fee for this service starting at £15+ Dairy free cakes are also available

How do I book a session?

Simply contact us to see which dates we have available, once a date has been agreed you will receive a link to pay the £75 deposit required. Once this has been paid your date will be reserved. The remainder of the package fee will be due one week before your session date.
