Cake Smash Pricing and How to Book …

Cake Smash Photography Studio in Cwmbran, South Wales

When your baby is nearly ONE, you’ll be thinking about how to celebrate their first birthday.   

Here’s a few questions you might have …



A cake smash photo session is a fun way to celebrate the milestone of your little one’s first birthday.   It’s not just about messy play, although that’s part of it.  It’s really all about perfectly capturing your baby’s personality in super cute, professional photographs that will let you remember this last stage of true babyhood.  Because sad but true, your baby won’t be a baby very much longer now. 

These are joyful photographs that in time you can show them when they’re older.  Looks of surprise, curiosity and delight as they experience possibly their first taste of sugar.  Maybe their first standing pose or first few steps will be captured, along with all their cleverness they’ve learned so far – like clap hands, peek a boo, blow a kiss, what sound a lion makes and more.  


Ideally, please try to book your cake smash session date at least 8-12 weeks in advance of the birthday – I highly recommend having the session around two to four weeks before the big day, so you have the photos back in time to share for the birthday.  You could also use them to print out party invitations !   On the other hand, you might prefer to book the session on the birthday itself to make the day even more special.  Use the BOOKING FORM below to get in touch, tick the box for whichever of these options you prefer, and we’ll check what dates are available for you to choose from. 

* * *  LEFT IT TOO LATE? Don’t worry, please get in touch as I may still be able to offer you a session date that’s suitable.



We will discuss everything in terms of colour schemes, and your baby’s outfits etc before the shoot to make sure that everything will be perfect for you, and we’ll have everything set up, ready and waiting for you on the day.    I also send out a booking confirmation guide which has some useful tips on every day things to bring along to your session.



The Cake Smash Photography Studio is based in Cwmbran, Torfaen, South Wales, UK.  We’re about a 15 minute drive from Newport, 25 minutes from Cardiff or 35 minutes from Bristol.



To reserve a cake smash session, a £50 deposit is required to secure your space in my diary.   This amount is then deducted from the package cost, which is £250.  Please see below for what’s included.  The balance payment of £200 is payable on the day.



YES we do, although please note that it’s not included in the cake smash package.  However, you can choose to add this on if you wish.  The cost will be £50 added to your package, and this includes the extra time for the bath photo shoot itself, cuddle time with a warm fluffy towel (also photographed),  and five digital images from this part of the session are also included.  Plus a nice and clean, sweet smelling baby to take home!
