1st birthday - Cakesmash paint smash or milk bath

It’s your 1st birthday!

It’s your baby’s 1st birthday! I’m sure you want to make this day as memorable and special as possible so perhaps have a family party planned or a day out. It’s also a fab time to get some photos taken of your little one to celebrate this special milestone and to be able to look back on and share with your little one as they get older. So what are your options? Here’s a few for you!



Cake smashes are fantastic fun. Choose from a themed backdrop with a colourful balloon arch or a plain backdrop that you can decorate yourself with balloons or bunting to fit your theme. As you supply the cake, you can choose whether to bring a homemade one that is perfectly suited to your child’s dietary needs or a professionally made creation. Your little one does the rest… sit back and watch as they play, eat and smoother themselves with cake, creating the most hilarious, lovely and memorable photos. Finish off with tub time to clean up and capture some bubbly fun photos.


Paint smash

If your little one cant have cake or its just not your style then perhaps a paint smash is just the thing.  Every bit as hilarious and messy as the cake smash, just with paint. You even get to take home their finished art work as a memento of this fun session. If you wish to, you can add on tub time to clean up while having bath time fun photos.


Milk bath

Milk baths are a lovely alternative to cake and paint smashes. A shorter session that can be themed with fruit or flowers. If you prefer, the milk bath can be substituted for a bubble bath to turn it into a tub time session instead.
