When To Book Your Cake Smash Photography Session

Thinking of when you will book your session? We suggest you to book your session 2-3 months prior to baby’s big day that is the actual birth day. This allows for us to find the perfect time in a day that works for you and your baby and schedule you accordingly. Also to ensure we create something amazing and unique for your cake smash set to make it stand out. Yes you definitely want to make it special for our little one.

Best Time to Photograph a Cake Smash 

I am sure you think about whether you want the cake smash photo session to be on or close to your child’s birthday, or you want it done in advance. The best time to book you baby’s cake smash photography session in Dubai is when they are between 10-11 months old. This we call as the best time as they are not as mobile as when they actually turn one and they give their best expressions at this age. This also allows for us to get your photographs ready in time for your birthday invitations and display on the birthday party.

Cake Design 

Once we have decided on the theme or colors, we can choose the cake design. You can order your own customized cake if you wish too. Or we can also refer you to our cake bakers in Dubai (Mister Baker or Jackielicious)  they specialize in cake smash cakes in Dubai and know the exact sizing and styling we are working with. Just let them know if your child has any allergies so it can be made to your specification before the actual cake smash photo session. If you are bringing in your own cake please make sure you have talked to us for reference in terms of the perfect measurements of the cake and the look to ensure it matches well with your set.

Outfit Selection

We have over 100 or maybe more amazing outfits in our collection including some cute accessories such as caps, headbands and tiaras etc to add on top. You can either bring your own or use any outfit from our wardrobe. We have a range of props and accessories to display to make this all about your child’s big day! It is also a good idea to bring along your child’s favorite toys, or some family keepsake item to make it more personal.  Outfits play a very important role in the while cake smash session. We make sure everything is well planned before our actual session date.

Cake Smash Photography Workflow 


The first part of the photography session is without a cake. It helps us photograph the baby on the beautiful set and create some portraits before we dive into the messy part. So feel free to dress your child in a lovely outfit for their big day. For portraits I prefer a nice and fancy outfit.

The Cake Smash in Dubai

Following through the session to the next part and the favorite part “THE CAKE SMASH”. I do call this part a tricky one too as it sometimes is for the little one’s. We stop and get your child to change for the cake smashing. A little skirt or shorts with bare tops looks great, or tutu’s and accessories such as bowties and headbands really work well. For some inspiration, check out our Pinterest for more examples. Here we focus more on a casual outfit to get all messy and enjoy to the fullest. Yes this only happens once so why not.

Siblings or family are always welcome to join the session! Just make sure you bring a change of clothes to travel home as it tends to mess up your clothes and it’s a great fun.

Bath & Splash

And now moving to the best part of your cake smash photography session in Dubai. You can clean up your baby till I prepare a nice warm bath with bubbles for your baby to splish and splash. Surely your child loves to soak in water with bubbles all over. This is usually the happy part for all babies and they love to splash the water and relax and make all those silly cute faces which we like to capture and make memories.

We provide you with high-quality images and printed art work to display in your home. These pictures always speak for themselves once they are hanging up your walls.
