Our Cake Smash Photography packages start from just £295.
A cake smash is a fantastic way to celebrate your baby’s first birthday!
“How did that year go by so quickly?” is probably what you are saying right at this moment as you clutch onto the hankies and prepare for your little one to become one. We at Canvas & Peach love to celebrate the occasion with a Cake Smash, documenting such a special milestone of the joy and excitement of touching and tasting a cake!
Trust us to create a bespoke package with your child’s wildest of dreams of their favourite of things and leave out the stress of organising. They grow up so fast, learning to walk and talk, it all goes by so quickly. We want to document these stages so that you can hold on to them forever.
We love capturing your little one’s personality with a first birthday cake smash – the only time where mess is marvellous! Take a look at our cake smash portfolio and you’ll see what we mean!
Frequently Asked Questions
When is best to book my Cake Smash?
We recommend booking your Cake Smash session at least 6 weeks out from when you would like it to take place. The reason we require at least 6 weeks is because we purchase bespoke backdrops/outfits/props that take time to be delivered. However our dairy is very busy and we normally encourage any Newborn clients to book their Cake Smash when they get their Newborn Photos back meaning slots may be booked out a year in advance.
How long does our session last?
Your Cake Smash session will last up to two hours, this gives us plenty of time to really enjoy the day and ensure we capture the best photos.
Do you take normal photos as well as Cake Smash Photos during our session?
Yes of course, it’s such special time with your little one turning one. We love capturing them in a few outfits of your choice from some singles of just them and then family photos, we love being able to provide a mixture of updated family photos and crazy cake smash photos then finishing on the bath.
Can I choose the theme?
This is one of the best bits! We will work together to create a custom theme for your child so the images are really personal to you and your child. There is so much we can do and it is all about personal preference on the style you would like for the session. If you don’t feel you are particularly creative we can guide you to choose a theme that will be amazing!
Do you provide the backdrop, outfit and props?
Yes, we do, about 6 weeks out from your cake smash booking we’ll get in touch to find out your choice of theme.
We sometimes already have your chosen theme or sometimes we buy some new pieces to add to our collection to change it up a little.
We always encourage clients to have a look on Pinterest or Instagram for themes they might like so don’t worry if we’ve not done a theme of your liking.
Do you provide the cake?
Yes, we do, the amazing Pudges Cakery makes our custom cake to suit your chosen theme.
What if my child has an allergy for eating the cake?
Don’t worry about that, If you let us know at the time of booking we can have a chat with our fantastic baker Sarah from Pudges Cakery and we can make sure we can accommodate. Alternatively you can bring along your own Cake, if preferred.
Who can attend the session?
We’re pretty flexible about this, it’s a great idea for both parents/siblings/furbabies to come along if possible as we can capture some family photos.
Is there a deposit?
If you’d like to book, please get in touch to enquire about our availability. Once we’ve selected a day that suits, to secure your booking we will require a non refundable £50 deposit paid via bank transfer.
What should I wear?
We know it can be a worry on what to wear to a photoshoot. We’ve made a helpful guide that can be found on our Instagram highlights called ‘’Style Guide’’. Alternatively if you don’t use instagram you can search the terms ‘’What to wear to a family photoshoot’’ to get some inspiration. You can have a look on our Family or Cake Smash portfolio page to see example of what other clients have chosen to wear too.
