Cake Smash / First Birthday Photoshoot
Cake Smash in March | Cake Smash Peterborough | Cake Smash Cambridge | Cake Smash Huntingdon | Astra Photography
Congratulations, your baby is turning one soon, where has that year gone? Cake Smash Sessions are a unique way of celebrating that first special birthday milestone. Not only will your baby have a lot of fun but you will have some amazing images, that you will treasure for years to come. Messy play for baby, that you do not have to clean up after.
The session is held in my studio in March, Cambridgeshire. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
You can pick one of the example themed set ups or choose the colour scheme and I will create a beautiful balloon garland for your little one. The cake is included and is handmade by a fantastic local cake maker. If your child has any allergies, please let me know when you book the session and I will liaise with my cake maker.
During The Cake Smash Session
1. Mini Portrait
At the beginning we warm up by taking some portrait images of your little one with the set up, with out the cake. Giving your baby time to settle in and have some play time.
2. Cake Smash Time!
Then we bring out the cake for your little one to taste and have a good smash at it too.
3. Bubble Bath Splash
Then a fun bubble splash bath to wash off the cake and tiny duckies to play with.
4. Family Portrait
Finally a family portrait. Siblings and your fur baby are welcome to join at the end of the session for 1 family portrait together.
Thank you so much for your interest in a Cake Smash Session with Astra Photography. I look forward to capturing some beautiful, and very special images of your baby.

Astra truly made the experience very comfortable and stress free, yes that’s right even with a 1 year old, stress free! With a great choice of themes and guidance the whole time we were planning and after the cake smash shoot! Astra is really professional and such a kind lady!
I was then surprised by the lovely package received with our photos and USB in!
Honestly an amazing experience from the beginning until the end! Couldn’t recommend enough!
When is the best time to book?I recommend to book a date in my diary when your little one is around 11 months old. This will ensure that the images are ready for his/her first birthday. I do book months in advance, so if you are definitely sure that you would like a cake smash session, it is best to secure the session with a £50 retainer. Although please do check as I may have last minute availability.
How do I book a Cake Smash Session with you?Get in touch by filling in the contacts form below and let me know your little ones first birthday date. I can then check my availability and start the booking process. To secure your session date, I require a £50 retainer, with the balance of your chosen collection due before the day of the session.
Is the cake provided by Astra Photography?Yes, I have a fantastic local baker who will also cater for your little ones allergies, if required.
How long does the session last for?Usually up to 2 hours session time is required.
What do I need to bring?A cake smash outfit, a towel, lots of your little ones favourite snacks, sippy cup and their usual travelling essentials.
When can I see the final images?Editing time is 3-4 weeks. These will be presented to you on a private online gallery or you can arrange an ordering appointment in the studio, to purchase wall art too. You can expect to receive 20-25 edited images in a gallery.
Can we have a family portrait?Yes, I welcome a family portrait, with siblings included. Please let me know if this is required and who will attend upon enquiry. I allow 1 family portrait for my cake smash sessions.
