Cake Smash sessions have become increasingly popular over the last two years. This is a trend that not everyone understands, but personally, I think they are one of my favourite sessions to photograph. Many important milestones have been reached during the first year of your child’s life, which is definitely a cause for celebration! A cake smash provides a great way to celebrate and capture their developing personalities. It is hilarious, messy and heart warming!
Posing a one year old is not the easiest thing to do, but this session gives them complete freedom to be relaxed and have fun. The sugar rush does tend to help with that too! The cake is not just part of the 1st birthday theme, it is a prop that grabs their attention and gets them exploring. It’s a new and exciting experience that they are sharing with you. It’s not just fun for them either. As I am taking the shots I love hearing parent’s shrieks of laughter as they watch their precious little ones! Seeing how they react to the sweetness of the cake, playing with the props and getting extremely messy. It’s natural, exciting and unposed. A cake smash session is not just about the photos, it’s an experience. It really is an opportunity to build memories that you will fondly look back on over the years.
What is included in a cake smash session?
The package includes use of my beautiful props which are colour co-ordinated with a beautiful cake. You advise me of the colour scheme you would like at the time of booking and I organise the rest. The session takes place in my studio or you can pre arrange for it to be outside in warm weather.
I work alongside the award winning Nadine’s Cake’s and Celebrations. A delicious cake is included in the session fee. It really doesn’t matter how much of the cake gets eaten, as long as everyone has heaps of fun!
