What to expect?
A “Cake Smash” session generally lasts approximately 30 minutes and takes place in my Logan Village studio. We start with some regular portraits being taken of your child to give them a chance to get comfortable in front of the camera and familiar with myself and their surroundings before we bring the cake out. A frosted sponge-cake decorated with your colour choice of coloured cake bunting is supplied for the “Cake Smash” but you’re more than welcome to bring your own cake along instead if you think that your little one may suffer from any food allergies. “Cake Smash” sessions are unpredictable but always a lot of fun, some little ones get right into it whilst others can be shy and need some assistance with the smashing. Either way, guaranteed there is cake and frosting everywhere by the end of the session.
What to bring?
Please bring a drink along for your child, it can be thirsty work smashing a cake and also their favourite snack or something that can possibly be hidden in the back of the cake such as blueberries to entice them to try and touch the cake. It is also most important that you please bring a change of clothes for both your child and perhaps yourself as the frosting can quite literally get everywhere. A few of your child’s favorite toys may also be a good idea too for comforting and distracting them at the beginning of the session. A bath is supplied for after the cake smash to clean up your little one so it is appreciated if you can also bring a towel or two to dry them afterwards.
What to wear?
The dress code is totally up to yourself and can be as casual or dressy as you wish. Personally I just love bare bellies on little ones for the “cake smash” teamed with petti-skirts, nappy covers and braces or shorts but feel free to dress and accessorise your child however you please. Both Ebay and ETSY have some great “Cake Smash Outfits” to choose from, feel free to discuss your colour theme or ideas with me to get the most out of your “Cake Smash” images.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to call or email me and I will be happy to help you in anyway that I can to make sure that your child’s “Cake Smash” photos are something that you’ll cherish forever.
