  • Your experience with us will last around 2.5 hours. We will spend an hour in the studio having lots of fun with your little one and capturing images for their birthday.
    We will spend half of the session photographing the cake smash and the other half we will do a splash session. This way if baby doesn’t like the cake, lots of splashes and bubbles always puts a smile on their face. It also means we can get baby cleaned up after getting covered in cake!
    We have lots of different backgrounds so we can tailor your session to create stunning pictures that really reflect you.
  • All of our photographers are great with kids! We have lots of experience working with children of all ages so don’t worry, we will keep your little ones entertained and capture some gorgeous natural photographs of them just being themselves!
  • Once your session is finished, we will spend a small amount of time adding the finishing touches to your images. You will then get to see them cinema style on the big screen and choose how you would like to take your pictures home with you.


When you think that something is going to be good… and then everything exceeds your expectations! The team at xposure are fantastic, we felt welcome and at ease from the minute we stepped through the door and the images they have captured are incredible. Memories have truly been captured forever. 


If you follow these hints and tips, your cakesmash photoshoot will run smoothly and we are sure that you are going to love your time in the studio with us! Capturing your family memories will be a joyous occasion and one that you will remember forever and we are privileged that you chose us to be a part of it.

What to bring to your Cake Smash & Splash/Birthday Session
  • If you are coming to us for a cakesmash photoshoot please remember to bring your cake! Let us know before hand if you are going for a specific colour scheme and we can match the backgrounds as appropriate.
  • Bring any extra decorations you want to include in the photoshoot.
    Bring extra clothes for you and baby. During most of your smash & splash sessions the parents also get messy and wet and you will probably want to change!
  • Bring along 2 outfits, one basic outfit to get baby used to the camera, and then one for the cake smash. Please bear in mind that the idea is for baby to get nice and messy, so makes sure it’s something you don’t mind getting covered in cake!! We have nappy covers here if you want to keep it nice and simple, or tutus for girls and pants with braces for boys are also popular. Have a look online for some ideas.
  • To make your photoshoot personal to you, feel free to bring some birthday themed props that belong to your children.
  • Please bring any means of payment and a form of ID with you on the day for any extra purchases.
How to get the best from your Cake Smash & Splash /Birthday Session
  • Arrive to your session 10 minutes early just so we can introduce ourselves, fill in the relevant forms with you and serve you with refreshments before we get started.
    Make sure you having everything you need with you to keep your little one comfortable in a new environment.
  • Take a look online at our portfolios before you come in for your session, that way you can give us an idea of what style of pictures you would really like for you and your little one.
