Cake Smash Photoshoot - Aldershot | Basingstoke | Farnham | Fleet | Chobham | Reading | Guildford

Meet Little Brenden! This little guy was just the sweetest for his Woodland themed Cake Smash & Splash session. His auntie had gotten in touch with me to book a Cake Smash & Splash session for her little nephew and had requested a Woodland theme - most of my Cake Smash sessions have a colour scheme (ie blue/white, pink/gold) but I also offer themed sessions, like Woodland, Space and Alice in Wonderland, to name a few! Have a peek through my portfolio to see some of my recent Cake Smash & Splash sessions here.


I had a few weeks to prepare for this session and had bought lots of props specifically for this session (even had a few things custom made!). I'm so excited to be able to add this to my list of themed Cake Smash & Splash sessions available for my clients to choose from!

Read on to see some more photos from this fun-filled Woodland themed Cake Smash & Splash session ♡


Part 1 - The Portrait Session

Upon arrival, Brenden was dressed in a lovely outfit that his mummy and daddy had chosen just for the occasion! I always start out the session by capturing a few shots of the little ones in a nice outfit, either chosen from the studio wardrobe or brought along from home.

For this session, his mummy and daddy had brought two outfits from home but also really wanted to use one of my handmade studio outfits once they saw it hanging up in the studio. I have the most gorgeous bunny outfit, custom made and sent all the way from Australia. I couldn't have asked for a more adorable model

At this age it's all about engaging them with songs, games and play during the session. He loved hearing mummy and daddy singing songs to him! The most important thing to me is that you and your little one have a great time in my studio, I want the experience to be fun and memorable - and of course, that means you'll get some stunning images to take home, capturing those authentic smiles and giggles we all love!


Part 2 - The Cake Smash! I absolutely fell in love with this Woodland themed setup - the dark wooden floor and backdrop goes so well with the autumnal bunting and the greenery surrounding the wooden logs. It all just came together so nicely and I'm so pleased with the final outcome of this Woodland Themed Cake Smash setup!

When we put the cake down in front of him, he sat there - stunned for a minute. As if to say, "hang on, is that really all for me?". After getting the nod of approval from mummy and daddy, he hesitantly poked the cake and had a taste.

One of my favourite parts of shooting a Cake Smash Session is seeing their reaction to having their cake placed in front of them - it can vary from disbelief to pure and utter joy! It's very likely the first time in their life that they've had a whole cake put in front of them to do with what they wish, so you never quite know how they're going to react!


Part 3 - Splish, Splash, Splosh Cake smash sessions can get very messy so bath time is the perfect way to clean up whilst having fun! Brenden had the best time in the bath, he was having so much fun splashing around!

This was such a fun session, from start to finish! I enjoyed every single minute of it and I cannot for my next Woodland Themed Cake Smash & Splash session ♡ Tags; Cake Smash Camberley, Cake Smash Farnborough, Cake Smash Farnham, Cake Smash Cobham, Cake Smash Surrey, Cake Smash Hampshire, Cake Smash Photography near me, Cake Smash Photographer near me


Are you looking to book a cake smash session for your little one?

My cake smash & splash sessions start with capturing a few shots of your little one in an outfit of your choice (either one picked out of my studio wardrobe or one you've brought yourself). Then we get your little one changed into their cake smash outfit and let them have some fun getting stuck into their cake! Some children are initially not that keen on getting messy and may need a bit of gentle encouragement, others take to it straight away and relish the opportunity to get messy! The final part of the session is a nice, warm bath in my washtub with lots of bubbles.

A Cake Smash & Splash is a fun-packed session and a unique way to commemorate a birthday, whether that be a 1st, 2nd or 3rd birthday!

Each and every session is bespoke and can be tailor made to your specific requirements. If you've got a particular theme in mind, please get in touch and I'll see what I can do! If you would like to make a booking, please don't hesitate to get in touch either via my contact form here or send me an email at and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
