Let us eat cake!

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 is fun for you and your little one.

We will custom design your cake smash to your chosen theme so the options are endless! Cake smash photos are the main event and your little one can get cleaned up in a bubble bath in our gorgeous roll top bath afterwards so they are all clean for heading home!

Set options





Your cake smash will be styled to suit your child and taste.  I have a wide range of props and outfits for you to use. I have carefully selected local bakers who can provide your cake. This can include allergy specific eg egg or dairy or gluten free. Furthermore I know of some great supermarket options too!

For those of you who hate mess, don’t panic! Cake smashes don’t have to involve a huge cake and loads of icing. A simple cupcake can also make for beautiful and fun photos and a less messy experience! Or why not plan a fruit smash? A healthy and fun option with plenty of colour! Either way you can relax knowing that I will clear up all the mess regardless!

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.


Choose from a range of set options or let’s chat about a custom design for your birthday VIP


Can provide a custom cake delivered to the studio ready for your session. So you can have a stress-free fun experience!

What our customers say

We had a cake smash photoshoot for my daughters 1st birthday, I can’t thank Rachael enough for the beautiful outcome. Although my daughter was a bit stubborn at first, Rachael was very patient, understanding and managed to get lots of amazing pictures! Her studio is really welcoming and flawless. Will definitely be a returning customer as my daughter grows!
