Cake Smash and Splash sessions

Cake Smash and Splash photography session is a great way to celebrate baby’s first birthday. 

We let them being dirty and satisfied like never before!

The Smash and Splash session means smashing, smearing, spreading, splashing by little hands and it’s all captured on the images. 

You choose the style of the session, birthday cake (or donuts/cupcakes/fruits) and whole decorations. 

What to Expect

A baby birthday photo session can take place in the studio in Scarborough or outdoor in surrounding area when the weather is favorable (up to 20 miles drive is free of charge). 

During a 1,5-2h session we create a full family keepsake:

– a few portraits of the baby on 1-2 backgrounds

– sibling portraits

– mommy&me portrait

– daddy&me portrait

– family portrait

– cake smashing

– milky or bubble bath 



After booking you will be asked to fill the session questionnaire to let us know about all your preferences. This will be the base to tailor all the elements of the session to your individual needs.

All accessories and the scene decorated in style of your choice, outfits for the baby, balloons and the cake will be provided.

What to Prepare

Except a birthday baby, other session participants should wear their own outfits. The best will be to wear natural, muted colors without high-contrast patterns to not distract from the little star of the day. 

You are also welcome to bring your own accessories or an outfit for the baby if you already have something special. 

Bribe may be a good helper – something what your child really loves.


The baby obviously, the parents and siblings if there are any. 

The family photographs are super important. The session is great fun for a birthday baby, but don’t forget it’s a special moment for the whole family. Parents are important for children and every kind of session is a great occasion to have a portrait together.

If you wish grandparents or other loved ones to attend the photo shoot, please discuss it in prior. Due to several reason, such as limited space in the studio, only close relatives (the parents of the baby and siblings) are preferred.


Around 3-5 weeks after the session date you’ll be invited to the studio for the viewing appointment.

All your beautifully edited images will be presented in a form of slideshow. 

This is the moment when the decision about the product package will be to make. 

There’s no need to make any commitments before or during the session.
