Getting ready to celebrate your baby’s first birthday? My first birthday cake smash sessions – Snap. Smash. Splash. – are perfect for you!

These birthday-themed sessions are ideal for capturing your little one’s big milestone and are a parents’ favourite as they are almost a 3-in-1 session! You get:

  • Snap. Beautiful birthday portraits on plain background with chair.
  • Smash. When we capture your baby having fun diving into the cake (and all the funny expression!)
  • Splash. For a little relax and a few portraits in a dedicated mini bathtub.
All Cake Smash sessions take place at my studio in Dalry, North Ayrshire.

Cake Smash North Ayrshire: How does it work?

Your first birthday cake smash photoshoot takes approximately 60-90 minutes and includes a beautiful setup of your choice, and a selection of birthday-themed decorations.

Your session also includes a matching cake baked by our professional partner.

Each session is individually styled to create photographs and artwork you will love forever: imagine, years from now, look back at your images and relive those special moments in your life.

Approximately 2 weeks after your session you will come back to the studio to view your final gallery (reveal time!) and choose which products and packages suit you best.


I only charge £75 for my sessions which includes an A4 print.

This session fee is due at the time of booking to secure your appointment and covers for the time in the studio, full use of backgrounds, decorations, outfits and setups which are coordinated to your home style.

When you come for your viewing and ordering appointment you will be able to choose from a range of products, including digital files and wall-art.

What Clients Say

We have used Lauren Shaw Photography twice now, a newborn/sibling shoot and a 1st birthday shoot. Both times we were made to feel very welcome, Lauren had everything prepared and following prior discussions had the colour themes and accessories ready that we wished to use. Photographs came out absolutely gorgeous and captured our kids perfectly. Can't wait to return some time in the near future for an updated collection of our family.

Lauren is fantastic! Brilliant photographer and makes you feel very relaxed during the shoot. Lauren was great with us and our young son during his cake smash and also at mine and my wife’s wedding and I wouldn’t pick anyone else for any future shoots. We loved our time there. Lauren Shaw is definitely worth a visit, worth the money and time. Thank you Lauren!
