Cake Smash Sessions

Cake smash sessions are typically done on your baby’s 1st birthday to celebrate this amazing milestone.

That does not mean it can’t be chosen as an option for older kids and even adults. It is always a fun and colourful session.

Included in the shoot is a short family shoot (only immediate family), some images of baby on a different/plain background. Then there is the themed backdrop for the cake smash. We end off the session with a short splash session (note, this is for 1 year old sessions only!). Popular themes are unicorns, princess or flowers for little girls and Paw Patrol, Spiderman or Dinosaurs for boys. But really, anything goes.

For older kids and adults this shoot will be a bit altered, so let’s discuss your fun cake smash session.
