Cake Smashes

“Let me love you a little bit more, before you’re not little anymore”

Thank you so much for considering Victoria J Photography- Shrewsbury cake smash photographer for your photoshoot.

It feels like only yesterday that your little one was born, and now they are about to celebrate their first birthday! They are smiling, giggling, speaking their first words, crawling, maybe even walking! Their first year is a year full of new experiences (for baby an parents!), exploring, and developing their personality! What better way to celebrate their first year than with a birthday photoshoot!

Cake Smashes are so much fun! We start with some simple, timeless birthday portraits before we get them changed into their cake smash outfit and introduce the cake! This gets as messy as your little one wants before they clean off in the bath tub with some bubbles!

My cake smashes include the cake, the set up and the cake smash outfit! All you need to do is decide on a colour scheme or a theme and provide an outfit for their portraits at the beginning of the session.

Then 1-2 weeks after your session you will be invited back to the studio to view your gallery of approximately 20 beautiful edited images. It is at this session that you decide on your package and any wall art that you would love for your home.

What my Clients say....

“Victoria was recommended to us – we booked a cake smash for our sons 1st Birthday and she was very friendly & professional from start to finish. Interacted well with our 11 month old and she knew how to get the best shots even though he was on the move and didn’t want to stay still. The final photos were amazing. Defiantly recommend Victoria if you’re thinking about having a cake smash.

When is the best time to book?

For all my sessions, I recommend booking as early as possible to guarantee a space. Cake smashes can be done from 10+ months. If you would like the images back before your little ones birthday I would recommend booking for a shoot at least 1 month before their birthday.

Can we include siblings in the photoshoot?

Of course, we can get some sibling images during the mini portrait session before the cake is introduced. 

If you are wanting a joint cake smash for siblings then additional costs may be incurred for additional outfits, decorations and cake.

Can we include a family photo?

We will be able to get a family photo during the mini portrait session.

Due to limited space I ask that this only includes immediate family.

How long will the photoshoot take?

Cake smashes usually take an hour. We will have a mini portrait session at the beginning, then introduce the cake and clean off in the bath with some bubbles at the end.

Do we need to provide anything?

Only the outfit that you would like your little one to wear for the portraits to start. I provide the set up, the outfit and the cake.

If your child has any allergies, please notify me on booking so that I can source an appropriate cake. Or if you would prefer, you can source the cake and bring it with you.

What if my baby doesn't like the cake?

It’s not uncommon for little ones to be a little unsure of the cake. Sometimes they don’t want to get as stuck in as you may want them too and that’s fine!

We have 3 parts to the session and you often find that if they don’t like the cake part, they love the splash part at the end. 

What happens at the viewing session?

1-2 weeks after your photoshoot, you will be invited back to the studio to view your gallery of approx. 20 beautifully edited images. It is then that you will decide which package you would like, choose your images (if necessary) and discuss and choose any wall art that you would like for your home.

Once you have decided on your images, your prints and wall art will be ordered. Prints are usually ready within 7-10 days, wall art between 2-3 weeks.

Do we have to buy a package?

No, you are not under any obligation to purchase your images and there is never a ‘hard sell’. Package choices are made at the viewing session, if you decide not to purchase anything then the deposit is returned to you.

If you decide that you would rather spend on wall art than a digital and print package, the minimum spend is £199.

How long do we have to use the wall art credit?

3 months from when you receive your prints.

Do you provide gift vouchers?

I will provide gift vouchers for full sessions, so for a cake smash session the minimum gift amount is £199 which would include the ‘fairy cake’ package. The recipient would then have the choice to upgrade at their viewing session.
