Cake Smash Photography – 1st Birthday Session in Perth

Cake Smash for your Baby

All-inclusive price of $395


A special Cake Smash is such a fun way to capture your one-year-old’s milestone.  The photo session will take place in my studio in Iluka, Joondalup. I will supply the balloons, decoration, a special Year 1 outfit to choose from, my professional photographic services and yes – the cleaning up!!

The Cake

Please note that for health & safety regulations, I don’t bake the cake myself. However, to make it easier for you, I can provide you with a personalised cake sourced from a “Specialist Baker” who is fully licensed and is baking the most amazing & best birthday cakes in her business. All cakes are covered in buttercream, which makes them nice and soft for babies to smash. The Birthday Cakes decorated to your colour specifications and I believe have a lovely artistic and modern look to it. I have to notify her at least 1 week prior to the day of the cake smash, therefore cake smashing bookings have to be made at least 1 weeks in advance. Alternatively, you can, of course, supply your own cake for the smash.

Pricing of Cake Smash Session

Just like my philosophy on Family Photography, a Cake Smash Session is affordable given that you get a full professional photo shoot of your child.

This includes: 

    • 45 – 60 minute photo session (before & during the cake smash)
    • room decorated in your requested colour
    • borrow one of our Year 1 Birthday cake smash outfits
    • professional editing of the images and 30 high-resolution images on a USB stick
  • and of course, you will be able to take the cake leftovers home as well as the balloons 🙂


The images on USB will also include a personalised 4×4 square collage of your child’s session – as this will be supplied in digital format to you, you will easily be able to have a canvas printed from it to remember this special day.


Decorations & Outfit

You can specify which colour scheme I decorate my studio on the booking form. You can dress your child in his or her own clothes, or you may borrow an outfit from our selection. I had 4 girl and 4 boy onesies made especially for cake smash birthday sessions. You can add matching pants or tutus. All sizes are suitable for a 12 months baby.







What kind of photographs will be taken?

We would start off with some portraits of the birthday boy / girl, then have the cake smash and at the end, I have a gorgeous tin washing tub for a bath. Towels will be supplied.


The set up can be expected like the photo below. Balloons, tussles, cake stand and the letters O N E will all be supplied. Colours will vary according to your wishes.


As I mentioned above, the Session Booking Form will also give you a choice of a decoration colour scheme.  Please pick your favourite colour and you will then be able to coordinate the cake decoration as well as your child’s clothes. Further choices regarding the cake will also be on the form.

If you wish to discuss anything at all prior to booking, just let me know through the contact tab.

Alternative 1st Birthday Photography Session

From my experience, not everybody wants to have a cake smash for their one-year-old baby. The first birthday is a big milestone and it is lovely to have gorgeous family photographs of the occasion. Consequently, I am offering the same price of $395 for an outdoor session to celebrate your baby’s first birthday. Here is the link to a blog entry of one of those sessions.

We were so lucky to have Karin take pictures of my pregnancy and of our beautiful baby girl. We have received lots of wonderful comments on the images and will cherish the pictures. The whole experience was wonderful, she made us feel at ease throughout both sessions. I would highly recommend her!

We couldn't have asked for more! Karin did such an amazing job with our baby. Our little one didn't want to settle, but Karin was patient and calming and we ended up with incredible results. Karin also accommodated our special requests and incorporated a quilt that was made for us in the shoot and also photographed our baby with my mother who was over visiting from the states. Could not recommend her highly enough. Looking forward to booking our one year cake smash session with her when the time comes!

Would definitely recommend KS Photography to all our family and friends without hesitation. Karin is not only an amazing and talented photographer, she is also a wonderful person to work with. She also has a gift with babies, our little Kiana was so at peace with her which made the experience that much better. We were beyond impressed with our maternity and newborn photos which we will treasure forever. Thank you again Karin, it was an absolute pleasure with you and look forward to working with you again in the near future.

I absolutely love KS Photography! If you are looking around for a photographer I highly recommend that you use Karin - you will not be disappointed! I have used Karin for both my kids newborns photos and will definitely be using her again when baby #3 arrives next year. We also just recently had a family photoshoot done and have just loved every single photo she has taken! We have her photos hanging up in pretty much every room in our house! I can't wait to look back at all the photos when the kids have grown up ???? perfect memory keepsakes ????
