Why book Deborah Longmore Photography for your Cake Smash Session?

I am fully qualified with the Guild of Photographers and now hold the status as a Craftsman in Newborn and Baby Photography and Master Craftsman in Professional Photography. I love working with little ones of this age! They are fully in control of the session but it is perfect for capturing those cute funny faces and smiles that are unique to your baby.

These studio sessions are the perfect excuse to get a bit messy, eat cake and then splash about in the tub. We will start with a portrait session using a couple of props before we get to bring out the cake for the main event! Then, after the cake smash, is another great photo opportunity! Your little one will love a splash in the tub!

My cake smash and splash sessions are delicately themed from one of my many pre designed cake smash sets. Some props, importantly the wooden numbers, are also added to the cake smash sets where necessary to complete the theme.

Themed cake smashes are available on request too! Obviously, where you have a bespoke theme in mind, please allow enough time before your session to let me know so that specific items/props/backdrops can be sourced.

All of my cake smash are set up on stain resistant fabric backdrops.  Due to this, they are washed between every shoot to remain as hygenic as possible. Equally, as they are freshly used every session, they really are clean enough to eat your cake off!

Is the cake included?

Yes! The cakes I use for my cake smash sessions are 4″ 3 tiered cakes. These are the perfect size for cake smash sessions. After many years of shooting cake smash sessions, I have learnt that less is very much more with the cakes! Babies can be intimidated of a large and overly decorated cake. As a result, I do prefer using a simple cake with a small topper or decorative item, also meaning there is nothing to make baby gag/choke. If you require a larger cake or a more decorated cake please let me know as this may incur a further charge.

The cakes are made slightly less sweet than an average cake, which is equally important, as many babies are not used to overly sweet food. It is for this reason I would suggest having your baby try a cupcake or muffin before their session.

A questionnaire will be sent to you on booking for information on dietary requirements/allegies.

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

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. I will continue to add themes to this list, so they are not an exhaustive list
