What's a Cake Smash?

A Cake Smash is such a fun way to celebrate your BABY’S FIRST BIRTHDAY.   It’s a lot like baby sensory really, but using a yummy cake instead of play dough or paints.

Some babies quickly get stuck in, while others take a more gentle approach. Either way you’ll love seeing your baby’s personality shine through as we interact with them, singing favourite songs, playing peek-a-boo and generally having fun.

Whereas a first birthday party would last only an hour or so, the photographs we take will capture all of their smiles and excitement for you to enjoy forever.

A Cake Smash at Picture Studios really is a lovely experience for everyone – plus, we do all the cleaning up!



What if my Child is a little older?

We have a whole range of other ideas to CELEBRATE CHILDREN’S BIRTHDAYS, from ages 2 and up – although, of course, you don’t have to wait for a special occasion.

Whether you have your own ideas in mind, or need our help to design something especially for your child,  just get in touch so we can start planning! 

I’m a Mum of three myself – mine are not babies any more now – and Oh! how I wish that I had SO many more photographs of them as they each grew up.  I would honestly give anything to have a record of each of their birthdays like this little Princess’s Storyboard Print shown here.  They say that memories last a lifetime, but professional portraits will last for generations.  So, I guess these portraits are for your children really.  For the future.  But also for YOU to enjoy now.

Let us capture your child as they grow and change each year – when they are just a little bit older, you’ll be so glad that you did.  


What makes our Birthday Photography different ?

… it’s all in the details

At Picture Studios, we understand that professional photography is an investment that you make because you value the certainty of being able to keep memories of today in beautiful, heartfelt photographs for all of your tomorrows.

That’s why we want to make your whole experience something you will remember and smile fondly.   We always remember that everyone has different likes and dislikes, so above all else, our aim is to ensure that your finished photographs are just PERFECT for YOU!  

We can tailor make your child’s birthday theme especially for you, but if you value the convenience of designer looks straight out of the bag,  take a look below.  We think one of our THREE SIGNATURE STYLES could be just what you’re looking for  …

Pure & Simple

Pure & Simple perfectly describes our natural, organic photography style.  Using a neutral palette of mainly whites and creams, sometimes with a little bit of pastel thrown into the mix, or sometimes we add a few natural elements too, such as fresh florals and leaves, choose this option if you prefer clean lines and minimal fuss. 

With fewer distractions, the “Pure & Simple” theme places the emphasis of all images firmly on your baby.   We capture every expression, and every detail from the kiss curls on their heads, right down to their gorgeous squidgy legs and chubby little toes. 

These truly are classic, timeless and emotive images you’ll treasure for always.


Colour Themed

A colourful option to suit your child’s personality or perhaps to colour co-ordinate your photographs with where you want to display them in your home.

For cake smashes, co-ordinating outfits from the studio wardrobe, plus traditional decorations such as paper pom-poms and balloons, along with a coloured backdrop of your choice are specially selected for you and included as standard.


Picture Perfect

Why not make YOUR cake smash story unique by choosing one of our signature “Picture Perfect” themes. 

This can also be the ideal choice to co-ordinate with Nursery decor. 

To base your theme around  your child’s favourite toy, for example, is a great way to remember their birthday each year.

Our Signature Product – a montage of your favourite images – We call it “The “Storyboard Print”

Take a look at some of the storyboards we’ve created,  all of them individually designed for the special little people we’ve photographed. 

Our “Storyboard” print is the perfect way to display your favourite photographs.
