Cake Smash reviews

I got my daughter's cake smash here and the props where amazing (wishing I had of done a newborn Harry potter shoot now) I ordered products aswell and the standard of them has blowing me away. Sam is so friendly and helpful and has captured so many beautiful shoots of my little girl, she is so talented I would highly recommend!!

Leah Robson Cunningham

We had the most lovely experience with Sam getting a cake smash photoshoot for our son's first birthday. Not only did she put him (and us!) at ease during the shoot and make it thoroughly enjoyable, she was the ultimate professional and the quality of her photographs is just excellent! We went to view the photographs today and we were just blown away. Thank you so much Sam! We will be back next year!
