Tidworth Cake Smash Photographer

Our Wiltshire baby photography studio near Tidworth, is the perfect setting for your little one's 1st birthday cake smash photo shoot.

A Precious Milestone

So you're preparing to celebrate your baby's special 1st birthday; their first trip around the sun! It's a once in a lifetime milestone that deserves to be captured and recorded! Think back to that teeny newborn baby who changed your life just one short year ago. When your baby was so new and helpless it was impossible to imagine the amazing little person you now see before you now, on the eve of their very first birthday.


You made it! While the sleep deprivation and exhaustion of a new baby can make the days and nights seem long, the saying that 'the years are short' is so true.  Here you are, already one year on, looking back and asking (as all parents do) - where has the time gone? Where has my tiny baby gone!

A Once in a Lifetime Celebration

Yet this is an exciting new phase with your baby! As they approach toddlerhood, take their first steps and day their first words.


Your baby's first birthday is unique! It's first time you'll sing them happy birthday; the first time they will receive a birthday gift; the first time you'll say their age in years rather than months! It's a time to celebrate and the perfect opportunity to update your walls with beautiful photographs of your soon to be toddler enjoying their very first birthday cake!

A Bespoke Experience 

I design each cake smash photo shoot set to be uniquely yours, with unlimited choices for the theme, props and accessories. Our photo shoots also include a splash in the bath at the end, making it a truly unforgettable experience and a wonderful way to celebrate your baby's special 1st birthday.


Cake Smash Sessions are messy play at it’s best! Your little one is encouraged to taste, play with and enjoy the cake in whatever way they wish. Providing a new and enjoyable sensory experience is a wonderful way to capture all your baby’s cute expressions and their emerging personality.


I will guide you through choosing your cake smash theme and bring your ideas to life in my Wiltshire studio. If your little one loves lions and elephants, why not go for a jungle theme? Or if you love the Boho vibe, opt for a pretty vintage look. Favourite fruits, book characters or outer space adventures may inspire you or alternatively pick a colour scheme for your cake smash photo shoot and I will create a gorgeous balloon garland to match. For minimalists, I also offer an all  white studio cake smash.


Included in your cake smash photo shoot fee is a beautiful (and delicious) professionally made cake by the amazing Wiltshire based Sugar Wish Cakes and designed to match your theme perfectly.
