Cake Smash & Bath Fun Photography Experience

Capture your Beautiful Baby at Play with a Cake Smash Photography Melbourne Session.

Turning one is a big milestone! And big milestones call for big celebrations. And cake! We cannot forget cake! 

A cake smash photography session is the perfect way to celebrate your little bubba turning one. 

Picture it now… Your beautiful baby dressed in their best party attire. Looking fresh and adorable and ready to melt the hearts and activate the ovaries of anyone over 30. 

Also, picture a cake. Not just any cake. A soft, spongy, perfectly decorated, insta-worthy, mouth-watering cake. 

Combine the two and what do we have?

A wonderful, glorious, delightfully splendid mess, that’s what! 

And while bubs are discovering that someone has left a cake unattended and well within reach of their curious little hands, we’ll be there to capture all the expressions and the wonder of new textures, tastes, and sensations as your bubba experience the joy of being let loose with a cake. 

Seeing your baby squish cake through their chubby little fingers, decorate their face with cake and cream as they feast on the goodness, and basically get very very messy in the most adorable way!

Tell me, Is this not the best way to capture a birthday? 

Bring your baby and your family into the Kapture Photography studio and let us give you the cake smash experience of your baby’s life!  

We can’t guarantee what will happen on the day… Maybe bubs will love the cake, maybe they won’t. Maybe they’ll dive in headfirst and have us cleaning up a cake for days or maybe they’ve not realised just how good cake is and won’t want a bar of it. 

But what we can guarantee is there will be lots of laughter, fun, and amazing images for you to take away and cherish forever.

Book in for a cake smash photography melbourne experience today and let us take care of everything for you. 


Capture Their Little Personalities as they Eat, Play and Live Their Best Life

Just like the first smile, first tooth, first word, and the first step, turning one is a milestone that should be celebrated and captured. Not just for your bubba, but for yourself as well. After all, you’ve just completed your first year around the sun with your bouncy bundle of joy!

This definitely calls for cake! And gorgeous milestone photographs. 

Now, as a parent myself, I know just how tiring the first year of your baby’s life can be. You may be still adjusting, and I totally get it. So, we’ve made it super easy for you. When you book in for a cake smash and bath fun photography experience, we take care of absolutely everything. 

We organise the outfit, the decorations, the cake, and the clean-up. The whole kit and kaboodle!

All you need to do is come along and enjoy the experience.

What’s Involved with a Cake Smash Photography Session

A cake smash photography experience involves lots of fun, lots of giggles, and one heck of a mess!

Our cake smash sessions are guided completely by your gorgeous bubba. It’s all about letting your baby explore, experiment, experience and live their best life for an hour (within reason of course. Safety first in the Kapture studio).

 But before the cake, there’s a conversation. 

When you book a cake smash session, we’ll talk through what you had in mind and what you want to achieve with your session. We’ll go over colour schemes, outfits, cake style and a date for the special day. 

If you’re not sure what theme or style you would like for the session, that’s completely okay. We can offer suggestions and advice about how we can make the sessions wonderfully unique for you and your baby. 

Once a theme has been decided, we lock it all in with a deposit and take care of everything for you. We will provide the decorations, outfit, cake, and anything else unique to your session. If you want to bring your own cake and outfit, that’s perfectly fine too.

Not a fan of cake? Ask us about a Fruit Smash session instead.  

Our style at Kapture photography is to capture images in a natural organic way. We won’t ever try to force a pose but rather capture your child’s experience, their personality, and their expression as it happens. 

Whether your baby completely ignores the cake or dives right in face first, we assure you that we’ll be there to capture the experience and provide you with gorgeous images to commemorate the moment.

A Cake Smash Session is Not Complete Without Some Bath Fun

Don’t worry! We’re not going to spend all the time capturing your sweet angel turning a cake into a gooey pile of crumbs and then hand them back and send you on your way. 

Following the cake, smashing comes bubbles! Lots of bubbles, lots of giggles, and more opportunities to capture glorious birthday baby images. 

While bubs are enjoying a scrub in the tub to clean off all the cake, I’ll be capturing candid bath time moments to compliment and complete your session. 

All our cake smash and bath fun photography sessions are approximately one hour long. Sessions can be booked up to 6 months in advance allowing for time to order custom items if necessary. And the whole family is welcome to be involved in the fun.
