Cake Smash

Cake Smash Photography in Stafford

Your baby is fast approaching their first birthday, and you’d love to have professional portraits to record this important milestone.

You’ve survived your first year as a mum (it was tough at times, I know!), and reaching the one-year mark is a brilliant excuse to celebrate with a fun photoshoot experience, right?

Here at Staffordshire-based Frances Stephenson Photography, you have two options.

What will it be – cake smash or fruit smash? The choice is up to you!

Your baby is one!

Cake Smash Photos

During a cake smash photo session, your baby will be photographed with a beautiful, giant iced birthday cake. They’ll be encouraged to devour it during their photoshoot.

Yes! They get to literally smash up their cake! It’s the recipe for a fun-filled first birthday photoshoot, that’s for sure!

But don’t worry, I clean them up afterwards too. As part of the session, they can enjoy a Bath Splash, which is also another opportunity for more adorable birthday portraits.

A cake smash session is suitable for babies of any age who can sit up independently, so if it’s a while until their first birthday – no problem! You can still enjoy a cake smash photography experience.

Included in the price is your cake and balloons that you can take home, as well as the use of my cute cake smash outfits if you wish.

Fruit Smash

A Fruit Smash is an alternative to the traditional birthday cake smash.

Your baby will be encouraged to demolish delicious, colourful fruit and I photograph the fun and the mess that follows!

Your little one will be sure to have a great time and I’ll create you fun, colourful pictures packed full of personality!

Once again, a Bath Splash is included so you’ve no need to worry about the mess!
