First Birthday Cake Smash

At PhotoBaby in Lancaster, we love a first birthday cake smash! We get all our party props out and create a gorgeous birthday party set.

Our cakes are all hand made to order by and always look and taste amazing.

We start our first birthday cake smash in our tea party set up so bring your little one in their party outfit. We won’t let them smash the cake at this point, so you can let them wear their best clothing if you wish.

Once we have created a selection of classic birthday portraits, we’ll move on to some natural portraits, and then it will be time to get messy.

We love to bring edible props into a first birthday cake smash, so we’ll have a chat over some ideas with you before you come and find out what your child likes and dislikes. We’ll also need to know if your little one has any food allergies before we do this session.

A firm favourite to include in our first birthday cake smash session is a baking the cake routine. The little ones love to do this and we always create some amazing portraits doing this – some messier than others!

And then it will be time to move on to the finale of our first birthday cake smash, the smash up itself!

Each and every child’s reaction to the smash up is completely different. Some go at it very tentatively or delicately, others dive right in and tear the cake to bits. How ever your child reacts to their first birthday cake smash though, we guarantee we will create you some stunning portraits that will stand the test of time and you will treasure for the rest of your life.


And if you would like to take some of your cake home too, we can cut your little one a very big slice for this part of the first birthday cake smash so you can save some for later.
