1st birthday cake smash session for adorable baby girl with a pink and purple girly floral theme

So it’s your baby’s 1st Birthday? How did the year fly by so quickly? All of those sleepless nights, getting excited about them rolling over for the first time, to learning to crawl and walk! Its now been a whole year your since they first came into your life, and its time to celebrate them and all their accomplishments, its a HUGE milestone for you both! There is no better way to celebrate than with CAKE! Cake Smash sessions are perfect way to celebrate your baby turning ONE! Miss Aria came to visit me in my photography studio located in Aldershot, Hampshire for her One Year Cake Smash. Mom had requested a lilac and pink theme with florals and wanted it super sweet and girly, and I LOVED the way it turned out! It was perfect for little Aria's big personality! Scroll on to see more photos from Aria's Lilac and Pink Themed Cake Smash session!




Part 1 - The Portrait Session I always start out the session by capturing a few shots of the birthday boy or girl in a lovely outfit, either chosen from the studio wardrobe or brought along from home.

The Portrait part of your Cake Smash session is all about capturing your little one in a simple, timeless way. The Cake Smash setups are usually bright and colourful, so having a very simple setup gives a nice contrast and also allows you to take home some beautiful, natural photos of your little one.

Part 2 - The Cake Smash!

Some little ones aren't as keen on smashing up their cake as their parents had anticipated! It can be a little overwhelming for a one year old to have a huge cake placed in front of them, to do with as they wish. Aria was a little hesitant but did enjoy poking her cake!

Cake smash sessions are themed based on your ideas and requests. All the cakes seen are custom made exclusively for YOU by a local baker. The theme and color scheme is your choice! If you don’t know what to do for the theme I can assist you in coming up with an idea. Some parents just give me colors they like and I design the theme around that. All themes are custom to your child’s experience!




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!

So adorable ♡




I love nothing more than watching my clients' babies grow and develop, which is why it means so much to me when my clients return to the studio, allowing me to photograph their babies growing up ♡ It was such a pleasure to see Aria yet again and getting to know her family has been a real pleasure , thank you so much for choosing me as your Cake Smash photographer!

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.
