Cake Smash Photography

About Cake Smash Sessions

Time really does seem to fly in a blink of an eye!
Your child’s first birthday is truly special and a time you will want to remember forever.

They grow so quickly and what better way to celebrate their first birthday than with a Cake Smash.

Choose from our many themes or let me design a customised session to suit whatever theme you want. Each set is uniquely planned out and designed to tell a little story.

My Cake Smash Sessions are uniquely designed and take place at an outdoor location, which makes them unique and like no other. I take pride in these setups and have won a number of awards in the cake smash category in the Admired in Africa Awards.

Good To Know

Your baby will be let loose with the cake and will be encouraged to make a mess! (With a little assistance from mommy or daddy).
The cake is included in the session fee and is made professionally and is yours to take home after the session.

Please notify me if your child has any food allergies. If they do, we will arrange for a special cake to be made. Keep in mind that your child may not eat a lot of the cake as most of it is used for messy play.

Please note that not all babies will actually ‘Smash” the cake as you might think they do. Every child reacts differently to the icing between their fingers and some may even cry. Please do not worry if baby cries, as it is about capturing the moment whether your child loves or hates it. It’s about the memories and you will look back at these photos and laugh.

My cake smashes are like no other in the area and I cannot wait to surprise you with what I have planned.  I collaborate with my suppliers for my outfits to suit your theme, and as super cute as they are… No.. you can’t take the outfit home. (LOL)

Sweet Smiles, Shy Giggles, Little Fingers, Big Hugs!

Maternity / Pregnancy Photography FAQs

Q: When is the ideal time for a Maternity Photo Session?
Maternity sessions are typically done between 32 and 36 weeks. The timing is different for everyone and I recommend that you don’t wait too late because you will never know when the baby will actually decide to arrive.

Q: What do I need to bring with to the Photo Session?
Baby’s Shoes, Baby’s Teddy, A recent 3D or 4D scan and anything that may be sentimental.

Q: Can my partner or my child be in the photos?
Absolutely!!! The father of your child and baby’s siblings are welcome and are encouraged to join in. The session can include up to 5 people.

Q: What is the turnaround time?
Typically takes 3 weeks for your photos to be ready, however, I will do my best to get them to you sooner.

Q: What if it rains on the date of my photo session?
Because my photo sessions are all outdoors, we are at the mercy of mother nature. Overcast weather is perfect for photos, however, if it rains, we will have to postpone the photo session to the soonest available date.

Newborn Sessions Photography

About Newborn Sessions Photography

Little fingers and curled-up toes, puckered lips and kissable cheeks.

These are the beauties, that deserve to be photographed in all their perfection.

This is a time in your life which is completely irreplaceable.

I strive to keep my sessions as natural as possible.

To capture the unique “Oh my goodness, I can’t believe you’re mine” emotions that a new baby brings along, a glance up at Mummy and her response to her miracle.

The sweet way you comfort your baby and the way you place their hand on your chest, or the way they fit inside your hands.

Checklist For Parents

1. Bring snacks and water for yourself and siblings. These photoshoots can be long and tiring.
2. If siblings are coming, bring entertainment for them.
3. Bring at least one change of clothing, just in case accidents happen.
4. Bring everything for changing baby, including any special creams and products.
5. Bring any little toys or sentimental items you would like to include.
6. If the baby is using a pacifier, bring that as well. It often helps soothe babies into the poses and facilitates getting them to sleep. If your baby is not used to a pacifier or you do not feel comfortable offering one, do not worry, it is not a must.
TIP: feel free to arrive at the studio 15 to 20 minutes earlier, to settle and feed until baby is happy and sleepy.
