Cake smash photography in Manchester, Cheshire and beyond

Cake smash is  getting more and more popular. Celebrate your little one with a full of fun session in my studio in Manchester. Let me show you what is happening during a cake smash photosession. Being a baby photographer in Manchester is something amazing, letting me capture the milestones of your baby.

The session

Cake smash sessions will last approximately an hour. We will spend the first 15 minutes of the session playing, and getting to know each other. I alwas tend to start the sessions with some baby portraits.The baby needs some time to warm up – this is my secret to a happy cake smash photo session.

The Cake

I always ask the clients to provide the cake for their sessions. Just want to avoid to have any issue, just in case your baby has an allergy.  If you bring your own cake, please do NOT BRING A COLD/REFRIGERATED cake. This is very important – babies do not want to touch cold/hard frosting.  The best cover for the cake is buttercream, no fondant, please because of choking hazard. Please leave the cake out at room temperature overnight before your session. Some babies aren’t very interested in the cake, so I’ll hide some of their favourite snacks in it.

Cake smash – behind the scenes

Once we have all the decorations and balloons set up, we try to put the little toddler in the middle of the scene. It can be challenging as they tend to crawl away:) I usually have great help from the parents to place them back and entertain the little one. We take a couple of baby portraits, and we bring the cake..so exciting..

Not every baby is keen on tucking in the cake immediately, but we don’t push them hard. They have plenty of time to experience and taste it. Once they taste the cake and like it, it is time for capturing some gorgeous images:)

Clean up

Babies love this!! My favorite method for cleaning up is the splash tub! Babies love to take a warm bubble bath after their cake smash, and it makes for magical images. I always like to add some flowers if i photograph little girls, they are just so cute. If you don’t choose the smash tub I have warm wet towels for happy cleanup so baby doesn’t leave covered in frosting!
