I just love trying out something new with my camera. So, I was delighted to get the chance to do my first fruit smash baby portrait session recently.
And I’m pleased to report that it went really well. So well, in fact, that I’ve now decided to make them a permanent offering, here at Frances Stephenson Photography.

Saying that though, they’re also suitable for a baby of any age who can sit up confidently by themselves. There’s no need to wait until your little one has turned the grand old age of one!
Adorable baby photos
Yes, my cake smash sessions are great fun for everyone. (Mums and dads – I guarantee that you’ll have a huge smile on your face throughout the whole shoot!) And they are a brilliant way to get some adorable pictures of your baby.
Which is why I decided to try out a fruit smash photo shoot, as an alternative to the traditional birthday cake.
It’s the same concept. Your young baby is positioned in front of my camera in my photography studio and encouraged to demolish a large, juicy watermelon (among other types of colourful, fresh fruit). Yummy!
I photograph the fun and the mess that follows, and your baby has a great time!
Fruit smash baby portrait sessions are such fun!
The vibrancy of the ripe fruit against my neutral backdrops looks fantastic. These are great, colourful pictures packed full of personality!
Plus there’s the added bonus with a fruit smash that, unlike with the traditional cake smash, they’re tucking into a healthy snack. No artificial sugar highs afterwards! Win-win!
What I also love about these sessions is that during a fruit smash photoshoot your little one will be having loads of fun simply doing what comes naturally to babies; learning about the world around them through taste and texture.
Everything ends up in their mouths at this age, right?!
Baby portraits you’ll love for years to come
Printed and framed or mounted onto acrylic or canvas, fruit smash portraits would be a great addition to your child’s nursery, playroom or any other family room in your home.
And you could have the photos printed to make cards and gifts for adoring family members.
As with my cake smash sessions, my new fruit smash sessions are quick and fuss-free, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy the rest of your day (I tend to book these sessions in the mornings).
Before the fruit smash itself, there’s time for mess-free portraits so you’ll get a variety of images from the shoot.
Plus, there’s no need to worry if your baby gets particularly sticky from squelching all that fresh fruit into their fingers and toes! There’s time included in the session to pop them into my miniature bath for a wash down and a bonus play in lots of bubbles.
