Cake Smashes

It can sound like a weird idea: get a perfectly good cake, then take photos of your 12-month-old making a real mess of it. But cake smashes are growing in popularity – and they’re a lot of fun for everyone involved!

Cake smash photography sessions started in America a few years ago, but the trend has since made its way to Australian shores. The cake smash is usually done around the child’s first birthday, and the photos are often used on the first birthday party invitations or just to mark the milestone. It’s often the first time the child has eaten much cake, and the first time they’ve been allowed to do whatever they want with it – whether it’s face-planting into it, putting icing in their hair, or knocking the whole thing over then crawling through it.
