Welcome to our Cake Smash Photography Gallery

If your baby is about to have their birthday and turning one soon, cake smash sessions are a great opportunity to have some fun and capture some cute images. Think lots of smiles, giggles, cake, icing everywhere and of course fun.

Cake smash photography is a great way to celebrate your little ones first birthday and if done early enough you can definitely use the images for their 1st birthday invitations.

All my cake smash sessions are kept really simple and minimalistic.  I want to ensure that your baby is the main star and all the little details are not lost in the clutter.  I will capture all your baby smiles, the crumbs stuck to their little chubby legs, icing smudged everywhere and pure joy on their faces.




Where are cake smash sessions are held?

Cake smash sessions are held in my home studio in Malvern East, Melbourne.

What is the best age for a cake smash?

Cake smash are best photographed at around 10-12 months old as little ones do not yet have sensory issues with food (especially icing) and don’t mind getting a little messy.

Cake smashes are a great way to celebrate your baby’s upcoming first birthday and if done early enough you can definitely use the images for their 1stbirthday invitations.

What should we expect from a cake smash session?

I expect us to have fun and laughs!   This is a fun way to shoot your baby, expect lots of mess, eating and a fast session.  Little ones at this age become tired quickly, especially when there is of activity.   To ensure your baby does not get too tired I allow your baby to lead the session and I let them explore and have fun.  Rest assured that I will capture all the images smiles and little details of the day.

What if my baby doesn’t eat the cake and get messy?

It is important to be clear that sometimes this does happen but I always capture amazing moments and have special tricks to get those special images.  Please note that I do not reschedule or do reshoots if this occurs.

Even if your baby does not turn their cake into a big pile of mess, I am still able to catch the fun of them poking around or carefully picking up bits of decorations or icing.  Many times we strategically place a little icing here and there and even have parents smash the cake up for them.  So be ready to get your hands and clothes dirty too!

I also encourage parents to bring along some of their favourite snacks so we can stuff it into the back of the cake.  Trust me, your child will want to grab it out and eat it.

How long does a cake smash session go for?

Cake smash sessions can take approximately 30 min to 1 hour.  Please note if you’re taking family pictures and booked a bath session too that this may vary.

Can we have family photographs too?

If you are wanting a quick family image before the cake smash this can be added to your package (small fee).  Please note that it is only a couple of images as we do not want baby over stimulated too early because this will make them tired and then may bring on tears.  If you wanted a full family session, it is best to book a different package on another day.

Can siblings be included in the cake smash?

Cake smash sessions are only intended for the one baby.  It is a special day for them and having older siblings may distract them from exploring and having a play.

Do you include the cake and decorations?

Yes I do.  Please note that Niki Sprekos Photography cake smash sessions are minimalistic.  I want to ensure that your baby is the main star and all the little details are not lost in clutter.  I will capture all those smiles, crumbs stuck to legs, icing smudged everywhere and pure joy. Before your session we will discuss the theme, colours and work together to create an amazing session.

If your child has allergies we can discuss this before your session and ensure your cake is allergen free.

Do you offer baby bath photography?

Yes I do.  These are my ultimate favourite images of babies in every session.  There is something so calming about babies in a warm soapy bath.  It makes every baby smile, giggle and have fun.  Without a doubt every parent has fallen in love with their baby’s bath images

Baby bath is captured after your cake smash.  A cute way of capturing your baby getting clean after eating cake. I have a gorgeous white claw bath tub or old wash basin to capture these sweet moment.  We can either have bubbles, milk bath or fruit bath.  Please note there is a small fee to add this your package when making the booking.

What happens after a session?

After 4-5 weeks after your cake smash session you will receive a link to your private online gallery containing images.  Your gallery allows you to select images you want to get printed and display with pride in your home.
