Sitter Session & Cake Smash Baby Portraits


Sitter sessions from 6 to 9 months

One of our absolute favourite times for great baby photography!


Our sitter sessions typically take place when baby is between 6-9 months, More specifically, these are when baby can sit up unaided, but before before he or she is able to crawl.


This allows us to capture a fantastic range of expressions and a whole variety of photos for you.


Having piled on a few scrummy pounds, a sitter session captures the most gorgeous photos: full of life, love and laughs from a baby discovering a whole new world every day!

Cake Smash portraits

Cake smash portraits 1st birthday

A cake smash photoshoot is a messy, fun session you’ll love to keep as a reminder of baby’s first birthday.


We’ll take some ‘lovely 'normal' baby portraits first - then let baby make the most of their cake while we capture the moment for posterity. You'll LOVE the pictures we take for you!


The cake smash is ideal for first birthday baby portraits. Not only does it mark this important milestone, but the cake also helps keep a wriggling, crawling, fast-moving baby in one place so we can get your portraits for you!


No rules: just bring a suitably yummy, messy cake for baby to do with as they please – with predictably messy results!

A few of the most common questions answered...

When should we arrange a sitter session?

When should we arrange our cake smash portraits session?


Cake smash portraits are the perfect way to mark the milestone of your baby's first birthday, and include both 'normal' baby portraits and messy cake smash photos!

How long will my baby portraits take?


All our baby portrait sessions are kept relatively short, because we know all babies have a relatively short attention span. Most baby portraits take up to one hour at most.


Can we include a few parent shots?


Yes, this is no problem - we're happy to include a few family portraits if you'd like to.


Do I need to bring props or anything special?


Our sitter portraits are kept relatively simple, but we do use a few props on occasion. If you have a particular prop or toy you would like to bring, that's no problem - but there's no need unless you want to.

Who provides the cake for a cake smash?


To avoid allergy issues, we ask you to provide your own cake for a cake smash session. Make it as messy as you like, and we'll take care of the mess afterwards!


What about clothing?


We recommend bringing a selection of outfits you love for your baby, so we have a few options to choose from during your session. We'll send you more advice about this after your booking is confirmed.


How many portraits will I get?


We offer collections including sets of 5, 10 or 20 images. All collections include both prints and digital copies, in high and low-resolution formats, and you can add extras if required.
