Cake Smash Photographer Norwich: Timeless, Natural,  Fun.

Capture a special birthday with a cake smash photography session

One of the things that I’ve found to be enormous fun over the years is the cake smash photography. If you’d like to see your baby playing happily with their cake, please find out more below. It’s great fun for the children and it happens in an enjoyable and and unhurried way

Natural, beautiful cake smash photos

Mark your baby’s first or second birthday with a Cake Smash photoshoot at my home studio in Norwich.

After taking a selection of beautiful images of your baby or toddler, we’ll bring out the cake and let havoc commence!

There will be the opportunity for a mini bathtub session too!

Cake Smash Photoshoots with Jess – The Details

A cake smash starts off with a standard portrait shoot, with both classic child images followed by timeless family images. We use props such as blocks, little chairs and free standing letters. These props are simple and neutral in colour. This part of the shoot lasts around 30-40 minutes allowing for outfit changes. Older siblings and family images are always encouraged at the start of the shoot and this takes place before all the mess! 

We then bring out the cake baked by Vanilla Cloud Bakery who are fully registered. The cake smashing part of the shoot can last from 10-30 minutes as babies vary widely in their reactions. Some love it and get straight into smashing and pulling it apart, others need to be shown what to do and need a helping hand. It is all relaxed and fun, there are no expectations other than to capture your baby as they are. We end the shoot with a little bathtub and bubble set up, this is a firm favourite with babies! 

Vanilla Cloud Bakery offer three styles of cake; a simple naked cake, tall ombre cake or a stylish plain sprinkle cake and I collect it on the day of the shoot.

This super fun photo shoot takes place at my studio in Sprowston, Norwich. 

Packages start from £225 – view the choices here.

“Jess was absolutely fantastic. Loved every minute of our photo session today. She made us all feel very relaxed. She is amazing at how she works with newborns and toddlers and how she gets the photos just right. I would highly recommend Jess. 10 out of 10”
