The Cake Smash & Baby Photography Experience

Cake smash and baby sessions are held in the Aurora Joy Photography’s studio in Romsey Victoria. Photographs are captured using studio lighting and a range of backdrops to suit your chosen theme or colour choice. Cake Smash sessions are best done when your little one is between 10 and 12 months old (when they are sitting unassisted but not yet walking) and will go for approximately 1 hour. We start out cake smash sessions with a portrait session of your little one, this includes one set up with clothing provided. After this, we will bring the cake in and start our smash. Once your little one has enjoyed smashing their ca smashing their cake, we will pop them in a nice warm mini bubble bath and capture some awesome splashing!


We take the hard work out of it for you! Our cakes are made by Little Red’s Patisserie in Wallan and are allergy safe 4 inch vanilla cake. You can have a basic semi naked cake or go the next level and match to your theme. We like to keep the cakes as simple as possible, so we don't take away from you the ca little one! As a rule, we don't do chocolate cake or reds and brown icing as these can look a little weird when smashed if you know what I mean. If your little one is unable to eat cake, we also offer pancake, fruit and spaghetti smash sessions. Just ask Emma.


First birthdays are so exciting and an important milestone to document of your baby. A cake smash session is a great way to show off their personality and what they are into.

You can choose to have a simple colour theme, florals or a more elaborate set up, the choice is yours. We will do our best to create exactly what you envision. Some elaborate set ups may incur an additional design fee design fee but Emma will advise you of this when you start to talk about your session ideas. The Props We take care of it all! From outfit to set up to the mini bath at the end, we handle everything. We have a variety of balloon options available including garlands, single balloons as well as big balloons. Custom outfits can be purchased for your session if we do not have it in the studio. about it.


Cake smashing with a tired bub isn’t fun, so try to schedule your booking in with your little ones sleeping pattern, when they are rested after nap time and fully awake. It is also important to make sure your little one has eaten it its not their normal eating time so they wont get unsettled for the session. Bring extra snacks and a drink for them to have between smashing. The Session will get very messy!! So its important for mum and dad to wear clothing that is okay to get covered in cake and a spare change of clothes for you two is a good idea.
