Cake Smash

Cake Smash photography is a unique and fun way to create precious photos on your child’s first & second birthday. The session time is usually 4 hours. 2 hours of this is photography, the other 2 hours allows for outfit changes, naps and all the other things little ones need. After all, a Cake Smash doesn’t happen every day!

In the first hour we will provide a fun and interactive photography session with props, balloons, bubbles and a bath full of plastic colourful balls for your child to play and have fun. But this is just the warm up!

The second hour is the messy part! We will record your child’s hilarious expressions as they are allowed to get messy grabbing, squishing and eating the cake. A Cake Smash is guaranteed to make your little one break out into giggles and smiles!

After your shoot the photographs will be provided on a USB which you can keep. Choose your favourite photo and we will produce a framed 8x10 ” print free of charge.

Luke Tetlow-Cross offers Cake Smash Photography with his mobile studio. Before you book, please check that you have room in your house for Luke to set up. You will need a minimum 2m x 3m space with access to an electrical point.

Luke Tetlow-Cross is fully insured, has up to date PAT Tested Equipment and is DBS Checked. All documentation can be produced on request.

We recommend the shoots for ages one, two & three when the children’s innocent reactions to the Cake Smash are at their most priceless.

We will provide the props, balloons and bunting but we don’t provide the outfits.

If you order a cake though ourselves, please let us know of any dietary/allergy requirements and we will try our best to fulfil them. In the rare instance that we are unable to, we will let you know in advance and will not charge for the cake.
