Newborn Photography

First birthdays are wonderful and emotional in equal measure. If your baby’s first year is anything like my boys, then it flies by in what seems like lightening speed! One minute I have a newborn in my arms, the next he’s surrounded by balloons, covered in birthday cake celebrating his first birthday. 

I capture this landmark birthday with a fun filled, First Birthday / Cake Smash Session. These sessions are full of energy as I encourage your baby to make have fun, make mess and have a splash, so I can get a set of images that reflect your little one at this time. 



You are welcomed into my newborn and baby photography studio in surrey for the session, where there is a comfy sofa and drinks. I encourage you to make yourself at home and enjoy. All of the sessions are styled from my large range of luxury handmade outfits as well as gorgeous props and backdrops. I work with you creating session and look that is perfect for your baby. You can choose a backdrop, two outfits and the cake which can be iced in a colour of your choice. Following my newborn sessions, Sitter and 1st Birthday sessions, are perfect to document in your baby’s first year.

The landmark 12 month stage where baby is often standing, maybe even walking. For this very special stage, I offer 1st birthday ‘Cake Smash’ shoots. This allows your baby’s personality to shine through, as they get totally messy, celebrating their birthday in style. Don’t worry though, the session doesn’t comprise entirely of messy cake filled images. Before we bring out the all important cake, I capture images of your baby beautifully clean and calm. I encourage you to make yourself at home and enjoy. The cake is included in the session and is provided by a very talented local baker Barnsley Bakes.

  • ‘BEFORE’ PORTRAIT IMAGES ( Here I capture door beautiful clean images of your child before the yummy cake is brought out)
  • CAKE OR FRUIT SMASH (Your baby can enjoy all the messy fun)
  • SPLASH (Bubble bath fun in a miniature bath, to help get baby nice and clean)
