It’s FUN To Be One – Create Lifelong Memories on your Child’s 1st Birthday

Celebrating your one year olds cake smash is such a fun and exciting time!

The Concept

When I set up the photography business in India in end 2013, my aim was to ensure I brought a fresh approach to children portrait photography. The Birthday Cake Smash Photo session is a fantastic way of capturing that 1st birthday in a fun and memorable way”.

When to Book

Generally a cake smash session is held when the child is 11 months old. Given that it takes a while to have the images processed, having the session at 11 months ensures that you receive the pictures for the child’s first birthday.

Cake Smash in New Delhi

Cake smash photo shoots have been popular in America and the UK for a number of years, but it’s still fairly new in India.

The whole idea of booking a cake smash photo shoot is to add something special and different to your child’s birthday.

While many people have photos of their baby eating, few people have a colourful, festive, professionally-executed shoot of their baby (and other family members) laughing, eating colourful cake and sharing the moment together.

Colours & Themes

Based on the colour and theme of the cake, we will also arrange all the props which may include balloons, signs, decorations, etc.

If you have any special requirements, please discuss those during the pre-shoot meeting so that appropriate arrangements can be made.


Celebrating your child’s 1st birthday can be a very important occasion. Not only are you celebrating their first milestone, you are marking their last baby days as they grow into childhood. And a great way to capture this milestone in style is with a ‘Birthday Cake Smash’ Photo session.

Just watch your baby have fun with the cake. Whether they eat it, smash it, sit in it or throw it about its always such good fun. With cake covered fingers and toes those messy little faces are such a joy to capture.

Cake Smash Photography

The Cake Smash photography package will set the promotional tone of the first party of your baby. Now is time to celebrate his first social event, though their won’t be too much aware of how special the date is. The cake smash pictures can help the child witness later on their life how much loved and cherished they were, and so do you as the memories of this phase of their lives is so beautiful.

Though this is about the first birthday of your child, the process of capturing this event starts even before the party is settled. The Cake Smash photography package is a fun concept to make your first baby pictures in an amusing way for the kid. We set the cake, the theme and your baby will have all the fun exploring and discovering it.

This photo shoot is the potential first time your baby will be the star of their own pictures in an artistic and beautiful fashion. We will place him or her in front of the cake and let the pre-party start. All interactions are precious, either your baby destroy the cake with joy or carefully taste it finger nap by finger nap.

Tips for Cake Smash Baby Pictures

Don’t assume they will dive right in

All parents hope that their little one will dive in and make a mess of the cake. That doesn’t always happen and that’s okay.

Not every child wants to dive right in and make a mess no matter what tricks we try. It’s important to know that even if they don’t turn their cake into a gooey pile of crumbs, we are still able to catch fun images of them poking at it or daintily picking of bits of icing or decorations. Sometimes we may need to strategically place a little icing to help things along, or other times mom or dad may have to get involved in the pictures themselves. It’s also a good idea to bring along a favourite toy and some snacks in case your little one needs some encouraging

Cake and icing choices matter

Bright or pastel covered icing seems to photograph better than plain white or chocolate, with the exception of red. Why you ask? Well, let’s just say that when chocolate or red icing is smeared everywhere (and it usually will be during a cake smash session) it can resemble things less appetising and at first glance people may not realize that what your son or daughter is covered in is actually cake. We have also found that creamier icing and less dense cakes are better for smashing. Fondant and really stiff icing can make it harder for them to get messy.
