Cake Smash Photography Session

Our Cake Smash Photography in Edinburgh takes place at our lovely studio which is centrally located close to Cameron Toll.  We schedule an hour for the entire shoot. We can provide cup cakes or one larger cake upon request (which we purchase on your behalf from local Edinburgh bakeries).  We provide everything else so you'll just need to bring some baby wipes...quite a lot of baby wipes! You can leave the mess with us!

If you haven't had any professional portraits until now, don't worry! We've got you!  


I do three 'looks':

1. Clean shot, clean outfit -  perfect for Grandma.

2. Cake Armageddon - which is sort of self-explanatory!

3. Wash-up shot.  Pretend bath, bubbles and clean up.

We offer three cake smash themes:


1. High Tea

Cupcakes with teddy: firstly, we have a few fun portraits with teddy.  When teddy has eaten enough, he will cuddle Mummy while your little one gets to eat all the cupcakes. 

2. Bamm-Bamm

A fun-themed Victoria sponge cake with butter icing makes for loads of smashing fun for your little one. With its soft texture that they can get straight into, messy play at Auntie DiDi's studio is a definite favourite. 

3. The Non-Cake-Smash Cake Smash!

Want to do something different? Maybe your baby has some allergies?  Don't worry - we can still have loads of fun.... Talk to us about our Balloon Parties or celebration shoots. 

Cake smash shoots are suitable for 1 & 2 year olds. If you have twins or even triplets (yikes!) you deserve a medal and we will not charge you any extra! The more the merrier!!

Leading up to your session, we ask that you start to consider how you would like to display your baby’s portraits. Working closely with you we will be crafting bespoke art pieces that will cover nearly the first two years of your baby's life. Is there a place above the fireplace in need of a family portrait? Does your baby’s room look amazing, but with nothing on the walls? Would you like to create a family heirloom that can be handed down through the generations, such as a personalised album with handwritten messages of love from extended family members?

Start talking to the extended family about how they would like to show off their newest family member, with maybe small side-table art pieces or a personalised app for their phone so they can show all their friends when they are out.
