Rustic Outdoor Cake Smash

Rustic cake smash sessions are inclusive of a standard round buttercream smash cake and warm bubble bath at the end. Sessions average up to 1.5 hours and include a photo of your immediate family with the birthday person, pre-smash portraits, portraits of your child exploring and demolishing the cake and portraits of your child enjoying a splash and play in the great outdoors. We provide clients a full service experience ensuring you are fully prepared in advance of the session. Clients receive a comprehensive session guide, pre-production questionnaire to personalize the session, a pre-session consultation and ongoing communication with us from start to finish.

Designer Cake Smash

Let us design the cake smash of your dreams. We determine your theme, colours, backdrop, props, outfits, decorations and style of cake at an initial in person design consultation. We prepare a quote for your approval, source everything, set it all up, photograph it and deliver you a selection of beautiful images to choose from. This is definitely something you will want to have professionally printed and a complimentary in person viewing, print consultation and ordering appointment is extended to clients wishing to invest in the high end printed products. Designer cake smash sessions are held in our Kambah studio and typically take around 1 - 1.5 hours. A complimentary family mini session with the birthday person takes place in a nearby outdoor location prior to the session. We provide pre-smash photography of the birthday person, photograph the birthday person in action and provide a warm bubble bath at the end to wash it all off. We ensure you are fully prepared for the session by providing an initial design consultation, session guide, pre-session consultation and an expanded level of communication from start to finish.
