1st Birthday Photoshoot Glasgow

What could be better for a 1st Birthday Photoshoot in Glasgow than a Cakesmash & Splash? These photoshoots are bright, fun & memorable, which makes them perfect to mark Baby’s first year.

We start with a mini portrait, of course Mummy, Daddy & siblings can join in this part.We then follow up with cake tasting, which often turns into cake smashing & then we have a good old splash in the tub

Whether you have a particular theme in mind, or would like to match up with nursery colours, just let me know and we can come up with a bespoke, fun set up or you can choose one of my existing styles.

We had the most amazing experience with Louise and absolutely love our pictures! Not only was she incredibly understanding she also went above and beyond what I had expected. My older daughter absolutely loved posing for her and her rapport with children is brilliant. Can’t wait for our next session with her!




1st Birthday Photoshoot Glasgow

Around 1-2 weeks following the session, you will be invited back to the studio to view your gallery of approximately 20 beautiful images, expertly edited with fine detail retouching. This session offers you the opportunity to decide on the package that you may wish to purchase.

A session fee of £50 is payable to secure your booking. This covers the photoshoot itself and the cake. I offer a money back guarantee. Should you decide not to purchase any images, your session fee is fully refundable. If you do however decide that you love the images and wish to purchase a few images or prints rather than a package, due to the time involved in editing, processing print orders, images for USB’s and administration of your order, a minimum order amount of £249 applies.

Investing in professional photographs is a big deal. It’s all too common for precious images to be left on a camera roll or USB.

You’ve invested in having these beautiful images created and as such, I firmly believe that it’s only right that they are displayed as beautiful wall art in your home, for friends, family and visitors to enjoy. And as your family grows, and you document your adventures, your wall art collection will grow with you

It’s true, you have digital files which will enable you to print your own wall art. I have the expertise and suppliers to find the right piece for your image. I will help you select the right size and style for your space and more importantly, I will ensure that it’s perfect by using the best pro print labs in the UK

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I book my photoshoot

Cakesmash photoshoots can be provisionally booked at your newborn photoshoot, with a provisional date which can be confirmed nearer the time. Alternatively you can book these photoshoots up to one month prior to your required date, however, please do bear in mind that my diary does fill up quickly so I advise to book at least 3 months in advance to avoid disappointment 

When should the photoshoot take place?

Cakesmash photoshoots can take place between 11 – 14 months old

What is included in the photoshoot?

I provide all outfits and props unless you have your own that you would like to bring along. Please do let me know in advance if this is the case. The cake is also provided in keeping with the theme. Please let me know about any allergies & intolerances at least 2 weeks prior to the photoshoot. The photoshoot also includes parents shots which will take place at the start. Please feel free to bring your own outfit for baby, should you wish

How does the cakesmash work?

We start by taking some family photographs and then concentrate on baby alone. Baby will have a mini portrait on the cakesmash set, wearing a dress or outfit from home. We will then move on to the cake smash and let them sample the cake and play with it, hopefully eating lots too. Finally we finish with a clean up in the bath tub and lots of splashing.

How long does the photoshoot take?

The photoshoot takes around 90 minutes.

What should I bring to the photoshoot??

At this age, babies are very engaged, but they also tire easily. Please bring snacks and a drink along, as well as a favourite toy which we can use to get their attention

Who can come along to the photoshoot?

A photoshoot can be a little over whelming for a baby of this age if there are lots of people, in addition to the lights etc. I therefore recommend that we stick to both parents as a maximum or a parent plus one other adult. During the photoshoot, I ask that you sit behind me and allow me to speak to the baby and engage with them, to ensure that we have images of baby looking at the camera. It can be a little daunting for a small baby to have 3 people shouting and making funny noises, so I ask that you allow me to engage and I will give direction if I need an extra pair of hands to get their attention.
