Cake Smash & Birthday photos

Cake Smash and first birthday photo sessions

Cake smashes are a lot of fun and a great memento of your child’s first birthday.    The session begins with a mini portrait session, capturing their many expressions with or without parents and/or siblings.  This gives them a chance to relax and get comfortable with the camera and the studio before we bring the cake out.   We do not provide a cake – there are too many colors/decorations/sizes for us to even begin to make that decision for you.    Some parents buy cheaper butter cakes and frosting and decorate their own, others go all out and order a giant cupcake or have a cake beautifully decorated to match the little one’s outfit.    “Cake Smash” sessions are often unpredictable but always heaps of fun.  Some children are quite bold and get right into it whilst others can be a little shy and need some encouragement with the smashing.   Either way, we guarantee that there will be cake and icing everywhere by the end of the session!    Please remember that cake smashes are messy.  Be sure to bring a special bag to put his/her icing covered clothes into as well as a set of clothes to change him/her into once the session is finished.
