Carlisle Cake Smash Photography

Cake Smash Photography in Carlisle

Cake Smash photo sessions take place in my studio in Denton Holme, Carlisle and sessions last around 90 minutes.

Cakesmash sessions are a fantastic way to celebrate your child’s first or second birthday, but we can do this style of photosession for any age including 18th, 21st etc, either with cake, or perhaps even combined with Prosecco (for the over 18’s)

We supply the cake from a fantastic local cake baker, along with allowing you to use any of the outfits from the studio wardrobe.

How it works

1. Agree and arrange a date

At this time you need to pay the deposit fee which secures your date. This is £50 and I send an invoice for you to pay via credit card, bank transfer, or we can arrange for you to come to the studio with cash.

2. On the day

On the date agreed you and the little one will come along to the studio, 

3. During the session

First we do a white background photo session of little one, and with mum and dad or siblings.  We then go into the cakesmash perhaps using one of the costumes from the studio’s wardrobe and take photos of little one eating the cake.  

4. At the end of the session

At the end of the photo session I will take the remainder of the session fee. This can again be paid by card, bank transfer, or cash.

5. Viewing your images

Up to 2 weeks later I put your photos in a password-protected area, give you the password and you can choose your complimentary 7″ x 5″ photo along with any products. Prices for the products can be found on my products page

6. After ordering images

Once you have ordered your photographs sit back and a couple of weeks later I will in most cases hand deliver your pictures. If you need a photo urgently let me know and we will see what can be done.
