CAKE SMASH PHOTOS EDINBURGH
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!
Amazing Local Baker
Set Design 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.

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!
Unlike most newborn photographers, I don’t charge for the shoot itself. It is entirely free to attend the shoot and have pictures taken of you and your baby. At no time are you are under any obligation to purchase a single image if you don’t wish to, in that case the shoot will have cost you nothing.
£99 non refundable retainer required in order to secure your booking. This will be deducted from your final order.
Digital and print packages ideal for sharing with family.
A range of professional wall products are also available to order. Custom sizing available.
If you have a specific space you would like to display your images in we will work together to find the perfect piece for your home.
WHAT SET/THEME OPTIONS ARE THERE?
In all honestly the choice is endless! I love to create custom sets for your chosen theme. So let me know what your little one loves and I can have a custom set created just for your session! Alternatively if you have a spot in mind that you would like to display the images we can work to a colour palette to suit.
DOES IT MATTER IF BABY HAS NEVER CAKE BEFORE?
Not at all! We will capture gorgeous portraits of your little one exploring and experimenting with the cake as well as eating it. For some babies this is a sensory activity rather than snack time! Some babies love to smear the icing on themselves, some stick their faces right in others are more tentative. But however your baby chooses to play with the cake you can be sure we will capture super sweet portraits of them!
CAN YOU PROVIDE A CUSTOM CAKE?
We sure can! Your custom cake is included in the session fee and made to order. It will be delivered to the studio so you don’t even need to worry about transporting it. Cobbled streets, speed bumps and cakes can be a stressful combination so we take all of that off your hands!
CAN YOU CATER FOR ALLERGIES?
Yes indeed. My wonderful baker Lee from Juniper Bakes can offer a variety of options to cater for allergies.
HOW DO WE CLEAN UP BABY AFTERWARDS?
A quick wipe down with wipes followed by the ultimate in luxury – a daytime bath in my gorgeous rolltop bath prop! The perfect size for babies, its time for more adorable images to be created while your little birthday VIP enjoys the bubbles and splashing!
DO YOU HAVE CAKE FREE OPTIONS?
Yes we do, if you prefer to avoid sweet treats we can do a fruit smash instead which is just as cute and fun!
CAN WE DO A MILK BATH INSTEAD OF A BUBBLE BATH?
Absolutely! Just bring along some flowers and I will add a splash of Oilatum to the bath water for the milky look
