A cake smash and splash photo shoot is a great and exciting way to celebrate your baby’s first year! We always have lots of fun during these birthday sessions, kids love all the simple decorations, the balloons and all the fun and mess that it is to smash your own cake for the very first time!
A cake smash photoshoot includes helium decorations, banners, and balloons. If you don’t have any idea of what you want, don’t worry, I’d love to send you some suggestions! If you’re also looking for a baker I know just the perfect baker too!
This session is in three parts:
The shoot starts off with pre smash photos which include beautiful portrait photos of your baby with all the pretty decorations and coordinating background, accessories before they get messy. Then, of course, the cake smash photos, kids enjoy these sensory experience, where they get to smash, this part brings guaranteed smiles. And then we finalize the session with a bubble bath that not only gives us the cutest photos of your little one, but it also makes sure you walk in and out of my studio with a clean baby.
All parts of the session are dependent on your baby’s participation and their mood on the day, and nothing is guaranteed, but I do my best to make sure we capture some lovely memories for you to cherish forever.
All my birthday photoshoots include family and siblings photos at no extra cost just to make some extra family memories!
I highly recommend to book your cake smash session at least 3 weeks in advance, so we have enough time to plan and order custom props if necessary.
A $50 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking, with the remaining balance payable before or on the day of your session. Your booking will only be confirmed once the deposit is received.

Booking your session
Milestone cake smashes and splashes sessions, are some of the most fun photos to shoot not only for me but you and your little one, too.
A nonrefundable $50 deposit is required to book your session, I cannot reserve any other dates otherwise, the outstanding balance of your chosen collection must be paid before or on the day of the session. No images will be edited until the remainder of your chosen collection has been paid in total.
Once your session is confirmed, we will chat about your vision for the session props and colors that you like.
During the session relax and have fun! Make sure your baby is fed (but not overly fed) and get a good nap before the session.
Don’t assume they will dive right in. All parents hope that their little one will dive in and make a mess of the cake, that’s what you are paying for! But that doesn’t always happen and that’s okay. Not every child wants to dive right in and make a mess no matter what tricks we try. It’s important to know that even if they don’t turn their cake into a gooey pile of crumbs, I am still able to catch fun images of them poking at it or carefully picking bits of icing or decorations. It’s also a good idea to bring along a favorite toy and some snacks in case your little one needs some encouragement.
Come prepared for some fun mess. One thing parents don’t often realize is that they too will likely become covered in cake and icing during the session, so a change of clothes for everyone, not just the birthday boy or girl.
What to bring:
– An outfit for your child to be photographed in
– Any favorite toys that are likely to grab their attention during the shoot
– A drink for your little one (cake smashing is thirsty work!) and some snacks
– A towel for your little one to dry after their splash session.
– Special soap if your little one has sensitive skin or any other skin condition.
You are welcome to bring your other children with you to get involved in the pre-cake photos.
When dressing your children for the photoshoot please try to avoid busy patterns or logos in their clothing. I recommend choosing solid neutral colours wherever possible.
After Your Session
Images can take up to 2-3 weeks depending on the season to go through post-editing. I professionally retouch and artistically enhance each individual image presented to you. Once your gallery is completed, I will send you a private online viewing gallery link for you to decide which images you would like and how you wish them to be presented.
