The 1st Birthday Cake Smash

We call our Cake Smash sessions our 3-in-1 ‘Happimess’ session as we do 3 shoots as one to celebrate the 1st Birthday.

At Shy Violet Photography, we’ve been cake smashing since 2012 … and over the years have adapted our Cake Smash sessions to what we now call our Happimess sessions:  We start with the I am ONE shoot, with our wooden letters spelling ‘One’  – we have bright coloured letters and smaller cream letters plus a big flowery ‘1’ for the girls – this shoot gets your baby warmed up and used to the studio, the flash lights and me.

After the I am One shoot, we then do the Cake Smash.  All our packages include a big bright and beautiful personalised cake made especially for you in a choice of colours by our fabulous cake maker.   Once your little one is done cake smashing and is covered in cakey gooey mess … We then finish it off with our Rub-a-Dub wash off in our posing roll top baby bath with bubbles, washing off the goo as we go!   All 3 as one session – which depending on how much your little one is loving it usually lasts around an hour and 15 mins or so.

The 1st birthday is definitely the best birthday for the cake smash – seeing and capturing their expressions as they realise they can smash it AND eat it is priceless.  These sessions are just full of smiles and giggles as they smash the cake to a gooey mess … seriously great fun!

Our 3 Sale Packages shown on our website – click here. Each package includes a 9”personalised cake made extra soft and gooey and very yummy, in a choice of colours.

If you would like to discuss a colour scheme or a certain theme, then please do get in touch – we are always open to and welcome new ideas.

Cupcakes can be ordered for £30 in addition to each package. Themed cakes and cupcakes start from £35 – We are able to offer allergy free cakes – so please advise on booking if required.

Following your photo session with Shy Violet Photography, a Gallery of images will be online for 3 weeks on our Customer Only GALLERY website where you will be able to view your images in the privacy of your own home, and as many times as you like.

There are no hidden costs, there is nothing more to pay if you book one of our packages, unless of course you would like additional images – you can request to see these prior to booking.

These are a few pics from Ella’s Cake Smash photo session – her mum chose Package A.  We had a grey backdrop with a very girly pink and yellow theme.  The ‘ONE’ letters can be changed to almost any colour and Ella’s mum asked for grey to go in her living room 🙂
