Why book Deborah Longmore Photography?

I am fully qualified with the Guild of Photographers and now hold the status as a Craftsman in Newborn and Baby Photography

My cake smash and splash sessions are delicately themed from one of my many pre designed cake smash sets, I provide the cake for the shoot included in the cost and the cake is coloured to match your tastes and theme.

Some frequently asked questions:

Is the cake included?

Yes! read on for further details on the cakeWhat is the cake like?

The cakes ordered for the shoot are 4″ 3 tiered cakes, these are the perfect size for cake smash sessions, after 6 years of shooting cake smash sessions I have learnt less is very much more with the cake, babies can be scared of a large and over decorated cake, a simple cake with a small topper is perfect, also there is nothing to make baby gag/choke and they are made slightly less sweet than an average cake to suit babies more simple pallet, my baker will provide you with a sheet to take home that explains the ingredients and how to store any cake you wish to take home

My cakes are made by Quality Cake Company and are ordered specifically to match your theme.

What if my baby has allergies/intolerances or is vegan?

I will discuss that with you and the baker and we can either organise one to be baked for you or you can bring in your own

How long will the shoot take?

Sessions usually can last around an 1 hour, depending on the session you choose. I allow time for some outfit changes for baby. If baby is unsettled and needs time for cuddles, milk or smacks I do allow a little longer, however once I have achieved a varied gallery of poses (including family and sibling images if required) the session will end.  No sessions are ever rushed.

What are the sets like? can I ask for something themed?

My cake smash sets since Jan 2020, in line with Covid practises, are now shot on stain resistant fabric backdrops.  These are washed between every shoot and are kept very simple to remain as hygenic as possible.

Some props are still however added to the cake smash sets where necessary to complete the theme

Please do feel free to discuss themes with me.

What poses and props should we expect?

I have a selection of props which we can use during the session, I will try to theme these to the colours of your outfits or to match decor at your home, you can always show me some examples from my galleries that you might like. all wall and floor examples in the gallery are interchangeable so we can chat to get the set just right for you.

We start with a few of baby on the set alone in a nice outfit, then some parent and sibling shots if required, this is followed by the smash, then a splash in the tub.

Who can be involved?

Partners, Husbands, Wives, siblings are more than welcome, however my studio is not huge so accommodating other family members outside of this can be more tricky.  Please discuss this with me at the time of booking if you are not sure as we can always welcome extended family members for some portraits before the cake smash session starts.

Location Cake Smashes are also available. A beautiful Teepee is provided in the absence of a studio backdrop.  No splash session is available with this option.

​All sessions take place in my studio by Tamworth or can be available as a home visit subject to space and travel restrictions.

Current Cakesmash Themes

Themes are tailored to individual clients so if you do not see anything here you may like please just ask! Please allow 4-5 weeks for a bespoke themed session as some products/props may take longer to source. These themes will continue to be added to so they are not an exhaustive list

Yesterday, my daughter had an inset day so she came to work with me. After work we decided to make this set together for a photo for her room (which we have been planning for 2 years). Absolutely loving how it turned out 😍
