Celebrating Dog Birthdays in Style

Dog Cake Smash Sessions

This last year or so I’ve had more and more clients booking in to celebrate their dog’s birthdays with a Doggy Cake Smash session. These sessions are super fun for the pups (seriously, who wouldn’t enjoy demolishing a cake to themselves), and it gives the humans a real memento to remember a special milestone in their dog’s lives by too.

Cakes and biscuits are supplied by the amazing Doggy Desserts in Llanelli. Having them just across the estuary is a godsend. It means I can do a quick trip over to collect the cake the evening before the session, so everything is super fresh for the pup on the day.

I’ve got a good selection of birthday props: bunting, confetti, numbers etc. I’m a sucker for a good prop and now I have a permanent studio space it means I can grow the collection.

These are a few of the dogs who have come in to celebrate their birthdays <3

The ideal product to accompany a Cake Smash Session has to be the Folio Box. The front cover comes personalised with the dog’s name and birthday date. And oftentimes I’m able to incorporate the colour scheme of the session in the box design too. It’s definitely a special keepsake.
