These fun entertaining sessions normally happen around your baby’s first birthday.

First Birthday Cake Smash fun!

Cake Smash Sessions are perfect to capture the emerging personality of your little one… along with their reaction to the cake!  Will they be cautious, curious or dive in face first?

A First Birthday Cake Smash sessions includes a variety of portraits:

  • – Simple portraits to capture your little one in your birthday finery
  • The Cake!  When your wee one will have free reign to smash, eat and generally make a mess!
  • Splash!  Which also doubles up nicely as clean up time too.
  • Arranging a Cake Smash session at Fiona McKean Photography in Dumfries could not be easier…


Step 1 – Get in touch

You can contact me at any time during your baby’s first year to discuss the styling of your session and to reserve a date for your Cake Smash session.

Ahead of the session you can choose a colour scheme or theme, and on the day of the shooy I will have ready for you a beautiful personalised setup.

Whether your love bright colours, fruit, subtle soft colours… we will make it happen!

Step 2 – Your session

The session will take place in my Dumfries based studio and it will take approximately one hour.

I provide all the decorations and even a cake to match your setup! 

Step 3 – Image viewing and ordering

At the end of your photography session we will arrange a suitable date and time for you to come back to the studio to enjoy a beautiful presentation of your images/ 

At your relaxed portrait ordering appointment we will work together to choose your favourite images, products and artwork. 


I don’t charge for the session itself, I just ask for a booking fee deposit of £89 to be paid to secure your session, which is then deducted from your final order. 

When you come for your ordering appointment you will be able to choose your favourite products within a wide range of digital bundles (starting at £199), all inclusive collections and printed artwork.
