My first birthday sessions are the perfect experience to celebrate you making it through this year of parenting!
Each of my sessions are tailored to your little one, to your ideas and I love to make it truly special for you all. A cake smash is the perfect sensory experience for your one year old, a chance to update your beautiful portraits, a chance for them to feel new textures, taste new flavours, and to have a splash with bubbles after! It is a funny session full of laughter, smiles and often mess over Mum and Dad!

If you would like to use the photos for your baby’s 1st birthday invitations. I recommend to do the cake smash photo shoot 4-6 weeks prior to your baby’s 1st birthday party. Also, some parents like to do the photo session on or closer to their baby’s birthday.  


However, cake smash photo shoot are done in our private home studio located in Marsden. Consequently, i can take my 3d printed backdrop to you. Travel fee apply. Also ou will receive a sneak peek a couple of days after your photo shoot and your online gallery will be ready within 2 weeks after your photo session.

In addition, a cake smash session is a very unique photography session which allows your child to enjoy the cakes different texture, colours and taste for a few moments. They can taste it, eat it, smash it and also jump on it, all is permitted! They can forget about the rules and just laugh and have fun, and I will be there to capture it! Furthermore, as a birthday gift or simply to treat you and your loved ones, a Cake Smash session will give everyone in the family a lasting memory to cherish & treasure.


Cake smashes are so much fun! They are a great way to celebrate your baby turning one, and are an experience that both you and your child will love!

Before your cake smash session, I will discuss with you what theme or colours you would prefer, and I then arrange the props, outfit and cake. So all you need to do is prepare for a lot of fun and frolics!

A word of warning though. Everyone gets messy at a cake smash – even the parents!

I start off by taking a portrait of your baby, without the birthday cake, so that you will always remember what they looked like at that milestone. Then, your baby will be photographed with their beautifully iced birthday cake. That’s when the real fun starts!

They will be encouraged to smash it up and devour it to their heart’s content while I record the whole thing on camera! This is followed by a much-needed clean up in a miniature bubble bath, which is another opportunity for me to take more adorable photos.

A cake smash first birthday portrait session is a chance for me to capture some wonderful, fun portraits. Your little one’s cheeky personality will shine through and the photos will be a lasting memory of them turning one, and officially transitioning from baby to toddler.
