This session will be a memory of your child's first birthday so it is important that we make the session theme in a colour and style of your choice. There are lots of favourites and I am bringing out new colours and themes all the time. I am happy to work with you to create your vision of how you want it to be. Below you will see some examples of past styles.

My Pinterest cake smash board shows you previous styles and colours. All of these can be adapted to your own specifications. If you want a particular prop that you have seen in one of my photos, please ask. I change my supply of props quite often, so some may not be available on the day. 


We have lots of bunting, garlands and decals for use during your child's photo session. You can check out some of our styles on our Pinterest board above. However why not order some personalised bunting that can be used during the session and then taken home and tied high in your child's bedroom for decoration? If you want to use for the photo session, rather than just for their bedroom, then please have some idea of the colours you want to use during the session so that the bunting can be made to match.

This is made locally by Buttoned Up and Pinned Down. Standard fabrics, up to 8 letters, costs £20. If there are more than 8 letters in your child's name, then it's £2 per additional flag; a hyphen or blank flag for two part names, costs £1.  

Payment must be made upon ordering. 2-3 weeks notice is required. Once paid you can choose from a variety of fabrics or if you have seen something you like already then let us know.


We are moving away from the old-style giant cupcakes though these are still available on request. A standard cake is included in the price of your session. Please remember to state if you want chocolate or vanilla sponge. If you do not specify a choice, it will be vanilla by default. 

Standard cakes are decorated with stars or flowers to match the colours of your session. If you want a special flowers or themed cake decor such as the superhero buildings or Mickey Mouse style giant cupcake with ears, there is an extra £10 to pay to cover the extra time and materials spent creating your cake.  

If your child has allergies and you wish to have an egg free/ dairy free/gluten free cake, this can be provided at the cost of £10.  Whilst these cakes may be free from the item concerned, the cakes may be prepared in areas which may not be totally free from the particular food. It is for this reason that neither Bright Eyes Photography nor Totally Scrumptious can be held liable for any reaction which may occur. If you are concerned about this in any way, please consider either providing your own cake or doing a jelly or fruit/meringue smash.

All cakes are made locally by Totally Scrumptious



Our storyboards are classic and timeless. These print at 16x20 inches and are colour-coded to match your photos. Have a look at our online brochure to choose your storyboard format.
