Kirative Images


Canberra's Most Trusted Newborn Photographer

It’s Time To Celebrate

Capture your child’s first birthday at Kirative Images, with a cake smash experience you will never forget. Perfectly styled to suit your little one.
With over 20 included themes to choose from. Your session includes a basic sponge cake, matching outfit and a gallery of 30+ amazing images from your session. 

Cake Smash Sessions generally take around 1 hour. For best results I shoot in 15min intervals. Clean images before the cake, are photographed of your child first. The cake is then introduced for a messy food play experience. No need to worry about mess, all sessions finish with a splash and play bubble bath or milk bath.

Family images are not included in your cake smash session. Guided by past experience, young children do not cope well with the additional time needed for these images. Getting frosted covered grins from your little one, is my top priority. The studio will be perfectly setup for your chosen theme. Let’s focus on them.

Session Fee ~ $150 due at time of booking. This covers your photographers time. A lot of work goes into setting up the perfect cake smash session. Kirative Images likes to make sure your theme is perfect for your child’s special day. Your session fee is seperate to your chosen cake smash package.

When Should I Book My Cake Smash Session?

Cake smash sessions are best done 2-3 weeks before your childs actual birthday. This way you will have those precious images ready to share when the big day arrives. Alternatively let’s book your child in on their actual birthday, for a very special day
Cake smash sessions are usually booked weekdays at 10:00am or Saturday if available. Due to the custom nature of these sessions and editing schedule. I have a limited number of available sessions each month, to guarantee my turnaround on all edited images stays within 2 weeks. It is best to secure your  session 2-3 months in advance to avoid disappointment. A session fee of $150 is due at time of booking.
Knowing your child’s theme early will allow everyone time to plan the setup that matches the perfect romper, tutu and cake. If you have an idea of the style you would like. Tell us now, so we can start getting excited.

Getting The Best Images On The Day?

Cake smash sessions are not the time to introduce new experiences. If you are looking for those frosting covered faces and big smiles. Your child needs time to prepare for the big day.
Let them experience messy food play. Put your child on the floor with a cheap sponge cake and whipped icing and see how they respond. Let them feel the cake and encourage them to hold it and feel it betwen their fingers. If they dont like it the first time, try again in a week.
Let your child splash in a bucket of water. Provide cups and bubbles and place the tub in an arera that is not in the bathroom. This helps them to understand the difference between bath time and waterplay activities.
When you arrive at your session. I will spend a few minutes helping your child to settle in and relax with some toys. 1 year olds are exceptionally clingy in new environments. It will be your responsibility to reassure them and get them sitting by themselves before we can get started with their session.
Please do not expect your child will eat the cake. Most cake smash sessions are based around a messy food play experience. I will capture little feet and hands in the cake. Parents will help with pulling the cake apart during the shoot. Most young children prefer to suck on the wooden spoon, or bang on the cake like a drum. All children are different.
