Why book a cake smash session?
A first birthday is a perfect time to celebrate and organise a cake smash photography session! Your child only turns one ONCE and passing the first year is an exciting and important milestone for all involved. So much has happened and changed in this first year. From those early newborn days where they slept all day, to smiling for the first time. Learning to sit up, crawl and maybe they even took their first steps. Saying their first word! There will be no time of such big changes for the rest of their lives.
Cake smashes are such a fun and entertaining way to capture your babies first time trying cake and getting messy. My favourite thing about cake smashes is that we really get to see babies make so many expressions. And I include so many photos to capture it all!! From initially being uncertain to hopefully LOVING every second and getting covered head to toe in icing. While I am busy shooting away, capturing all the action – you get to laugh and enjoy your little one. At the end of your cake smash photography session, we offer a cute mini bath shoot to get them clean and watch them play in the water! This results in even more adorable images of course. 🙂
When to book a cake smash session?
We love to capture cake smash photography sessions generally between 10 – 13 months old. Some parents choose to display their images at the first birthday party or would like to use for invitations so, in that case, I would suggest between 10-11 months old. Otherwise, some parents choose to schedule their session closer to their child’s birthday. There is no wrong time!
Will my baby like the cake?
Most of the bubs we see come into our studio, do enjoy getting messy and exploring the cake. Some children will get super messy and covered head to toe in icing! Other babies need a little bit of patience and gentle encouragement to become comfortable. Afterall – it is normally their first time being exposed to the sweet taste and texture of a cake. It can be beneficial for you to give your baby a cupcake or two in the week/s prior to our session together so it becomes a little more familiar to them. Even if your baby doesn’t LOVE eating and playing with the cake, we still get plenty of images prior (while they are clean) and will move onto the bath splash section of the cake smash which they all tend to love!
Where does the cake smash photography session take place?
All of our cake smash photography sessions take place in our Point Cook studio, 20km west of Melbourne CBD. In the summer months, we occasionally offer outdoor cake smash sessions. If you prefer outdoor, please contact us prior to booking online.
