Cake Smash + Splash


Cake Smashes are an exciting way to mark your baby's big milestone and are fun for everyone involved! Typically done in-studio so you don't have to worry about the mess, bugs, uneven ground, weather, etc., smashes take about 45 minutes from start to finish and include:

~ use of in-stock props, backdrops

~ 1 family photo with decor set-up (optional)

~ 10 pre-smash portraits 

~ 20 cake smashing photos

~ 10 tubby time photos (a super fun way to clean up your baby before strapping them into their car seat!)

~ a $20 print credit

My personal preference is a style that is simple, timeless, and organic. The fewer props, the better so that the focus can be on your baby.  If you prefer decorations for your session, please choose and bring ones that are unique to your baby.


Cake Smash Sessions cost $275 + GST  10% discount for returning clients

Add timeless family photos (10 images) using the living space of the studio for an additional $100 + GST.  

(Fees are due at the time of your shoot)

**Best to book 2-3 weeks before the actual birthday so that you have the images in time to share with family/use for invitations/decor etc. Price does not include family photos.


Once you book your session, we will discuss your theme/colour ideas and you will receive a helpful Cake Smash Tips sheet with information such as how to plan & prepare, what type of cake to make or purchase, and a list of items to bring.


Need a baker? We have some amazing cake artists in the area that I would be happy to recommend!
