Baby Cake Smash Photography

Celebrate your baby’s first years with a popular Cake Smash photo shoot and delicious giant cupcake by the talented Sara Wilson at Cake House. I photograph mostly studio based shoots including families, children’s portraits, girl’s birthday parties and baby cake smash photography. Find a review of my cake smash fun at Dollybakes. Following your photography session view your photos online and download them at your leisure.


Order a Personalised Cake for your baby’s first or second birthday created just for your little one. Cake Smash photography is a new & unique way to create precious baby photos on their first & second birthday & such a memorable experience at CT Images in Bolton! We provide your child with a giant cupcake in whatever colours you’d like and then record your child’s hilarious expressions as they are allowed to get messy grabbing, squishing and eating the cake.

Package One:   Cake Smash Photo Session, personalised cake and one 8 x 6 print or one digital image –  £80

Package Two:    Cake Smash Photo Session, personalised cake and five 8×6″ prints or five digital images –  £120

Package Three:  Cake Smash Photo Session, personalised cake, bubble bath and all digital images – £190

After your shoot photographs will be uploaded to a password protected gallery. Choose your favourites on-line & contact Suzanne with your final order. If you have purchased Package Three, you can download the entire gallery to your personal computer. Images will be retouched and provided at a high resolution for you to print and share.

Some details… Cake Smash Photographer Suzanne Cope loves to photograph babies and toddlers in her own unique style and along with Sara Wilson at Cake House, they design each cake to our clients requirements. We recommend the shoots for ages one, two & three when the children’s innocent reactions to the cake are absolutely priceless. We provide the cake, the bunting and balloons. We suggest you bring frilly knickers or a tutu for a girl and jeans/dungarees and a tie or bow tie for a boy. We find it looks really cute if the children aren’t wearing too many clothes and so much easier to clean them up afterwards!  However we also do ‘Bubble Bath’ pictures after the Cake Smash if you would like more gorgeous photographs of your little one. All Photo shoots include your delicious cake and take place at our Bolton town centre studio lasting 45 minutes.


Package One: £40 half hour photo session with your favourite image on disc

Package Two: £120 one hour photo session with 10 images on disc and two clothes changes

Package Three: £190 one hour photo session with 30 images on disc and up to four clothes changes
