Cake Smash & Splash Photography

Cake Smash & Splash Sessions

Happy first birthday baby! Cake Smash sessions are for babies celebrating their first birthday, where we start with a short portrait session, followed by your baby (hopefully!) smashing their cake and finishing off with a ‘splash’ – a clean up in a tub of bubbles!

The success of these sessions is often down to the willingness and mood of your baby to participate on the day, so whilst I cannot guarantee smiles, I always do my best to create a lovely gallery of images for you, whatever their mood might be on the day!



We received the most amazing pictures from our little girls cake smash. Sarah really went above and beyond throughout the whole process and my daughter loved her. I would recommend sarah to anyone and will definitely use her again in the future. We really do have the most beautiful pictures to look Back on. Thank you again x

I offer a wide range of additional products to allow you to create bespoke wall art, so you can enjoy your stunning photographs every day. I firmly believe that you get the best out of your photographs when you print and display them, as you also then get to see and appreciate them.

Oh my gosh, I absolutely love my pictures. Thank you so much Sarah! 



Cake Smash & Splash Sessions last around 1.5 hours in my studio and include a choice of outfit to wear from my collection, plus balloons and bunting in a colour of your choice. I have a number of different colour backdrop options to choose from, or if you have any ideas on a theme, please get in touch and I’ll see what I can create for you!


Unfortunately I am not able to provide the cake for cake smash sessions, due to food hygiene guidelines. But don’t worry, I can recommend a brilliant local cake maker who makes beautiful cakes, just right for your session! Crumbs Cafe in Silsden has a 5 star hygiene rating along with relevant food hygiene certificates and are only a 2 minute drive from my studio. Aimee who owns Crumbs Cafe would love to make your cake for your little ones special Birthday and you can contact her on 01535 959418 or through her Facebook page here: Crumbs Cafe

​Aimee and I have designed 3 different cakes for you to choose from for your session that will work perfectly for your baby’s smash. The choices are ‘the drip cake’, ‘the full buttercream’ and ‘the semi-naked’, all of which are a 6 inch round vanilla sponge cake and can be ordered in the colour scheme of your choice (please discuss cake options with me prior to ordering your cake, so I can show you the options and we can ensure it is in keeping with your set). Aimee’s cakes are priced from £30. Of course, if you would like something different than the recommended cakes, please fee free to discuss this with Aimee for a personalised quote. Please mention Sarah Walton Photography upon ordering your cake and place your order with at least 2 weeks notice wherever possible.

You will be invited back to my studio to view your beautifully edited and enhanced gallery of around 25 images and place your order, approximately 2 weeks after the date of your session and this appointment will be booked with you at the end of the session.
