Cake smash photos

Cake smash photos have to be one of the cutest way to document your child’s first birthday! A cake smash photoshoot with Beautiful Bairns will mean you and your little one have a fabulously fun day with gorgeous classic portraits to start, messy funny cake smash photos as the main event and finally a bubble bath in our gorgeous roll top bath! Cake smash photo sessions can be styled to suit your child and their personality and I have a range of props and outfits for you to use. I can recommend several excellent local bakers for a custom made cake and know of some great supermarket options too!

For those of you who hate mess, cake smash photos don’t have to involve a huge cake and loads of icing, a simple cupcake with candle also makes for beautiful cake smash photos and a less messy experience!

For older children a styled tea party or teddy bears picnic is a fun and adorable twist on the classic cake smash and can take place in the studio or outdoors. You can read all about Eliza’s tea party session here including some words from her Mummy about the session.

Eliza always has great fun with Rachael, and this is reflected in the pictures that Rachael takes of her.
The photos are fantastic! There is a wonderful contrast between the soft vintage photos of the tea party, and the sassy vibrant photos from our walk about. Yet again Rachael has made our little girl look so beautiful!
