Celebrate your child’s first or second birthday with a cake smash!

Well it’s been gaining popularity in the UK for a few years now, but the idea originated in the U.S. It’s a really fun and unique way of celebrating those early milestone’s.

It’s important to note that not all children will smash the cake! Many will just sit there and eat it – which is just fine! Every photo session is different because every child is.


A cake is included in the cost of your photo session and I will provide it. These are bought in from a local cake maker, so please let me know at the time of booking if your child has any food allergies or if you would prefer to bring your own.

Your photo session will take place at my comfortable dedicated studio at Parndon Mill, on the edge of Harlow, Essex. The session is designed to capture your child as they play, explore and rest.

Parndon Mill (an old flour mill) is a creative hub on the edge of Harlow, which is where many other creative businesses are based. It’s a bit of a well kept secret next to the river, but the location offers the option to take the session outside and make use of the fabulous private grounds that surround that Mill. This link takes you to a short video all about Parndon Mill.

How much does it all cost? The simple answer is : your session booking fee (of £100) + products (from £65) = your investment.

The £100 session booking fee reserves your space in my diary and includes:

  • Photography time and creative talent
  • Use of any props and accessories as required
  • Sibling & family images
  • Preparation of your images for each viewing session
  • One watermarked preview image on Facebook (if you wish)
  • A custom viewing session – I can give as much assistance as you need in making your selections.  I don’t believe in a hard sell, so whilst I can assist you in choosing the right photographs, it will never be a pressurised environment.

I have a huge range of products including, Wall Art (traditional frames and contemporary floating prints), printable images on a USB, albums and other print options.  Prices range from £65 to £785.

After your studio session I’ll walk you through my studio and explain in detail all the different options. You’ll also get a product and price list to take away and look through before your viewing.

No prints or digital files are included in the session fee.
