Your cake smash and splash session take place in your home. I bring absolutely everything that is needed. All you provide is the baby and the cake!

Your cake smash has three portions- classic family portraits at the beginning of the session (when everyone is still nice and clean). This is followed by the messy, fun part- the cake smash. Finally, it’s splash time in a vintage bath for some adorable images of your baby amongst the bubbles and rubber ducks.

They are a fun filled way to mark a first birthday.

We had a newborn photo shoot with Tickle Toes almost 8 months ago and it was one of the best decisions we ever made. Siobhain was an absolute pleasure to deal with, so calm & gentle with baby, and she made the whole process so easy and enjoyable for us. And all in the comfort of our own home.

We were absolutely thrilled with the beautiful photos she took. We were so glad to have captured that very special time in our lives and we will treasure them always. For any new parents out there considering a photo shoot, go for it, you definitely won’t regret it!

Happy baby splashing in bath tub

When should I book my session?

For cakesmash I usually suggest two ways to have your session. Some people like to have it on baby’s actual birthday to mark the occasion. Others prefer to have it a few weeks before the birthday itself so that they can have their images back in time for the birthday celebration.

What do I need to do?

We will decide a theme or colour scheme together. I will provide the decorations, balloons and outfit. All you need to do is provide the cake. I am happy to recommend some wonderful bakers that I have worked with.
