How to Prepare for your First Cake Smash


How to Prepare for Your First Cake Smash


Choose your Cake Smash Theme



Think about what your child's first birthday theme will be and choose this as the theme for your Cake Smash. Will it be Dinosaurs, fairies, jungle, trains, or butterflies?


Choose a Cake for your Cake Smash



A Simple Butter Cake will make for a great "messy" cake and will allow your little one to grab and squeeze and get all gooey in the softness of the cake. Book someone to make it or prepare to make it yourself.


Choose your Cake Smash Outfit



Dress your baby in something simple that will work well with your chosen theme. Remember they are going to get messy and have Cake all over it, so make sure it is an outfit that you don't mind getting messy.


Book Your Cake Smash Session



Book your Cake Smash with us at Three Hearts Photography. We offer a $50 Session Fee when you supply your own Cake and we even supply the clean up, including a bath for your little one when they are finished.

(Please note our bath is cleaned before and after each session for your baby's safety)


Family Portrait at Three Hearts Photography



Your Baby's first birthday is a memorable occasion and we want to make it extra special for you and your family. As an added bonus, we offer a Family Portrait at the start of your Session to capture your family at this momentous time!


 Pack for your Cake Smash


#6. PACK

We suggest that you bring a few things to your Cake Smash Session. You will need a change of clothes for your little one, an extra nappy, a few of their favourite snacks, your Cake Smash Outfit and any toys or props from home that you want to add to your Portrait.


Fun Cake Smash for One Year Olds



Your Cake Smash will be relaxed, fun and of course, a whole lot of MESSY!

Please note that some babies might be uncertain about the feeling of Cake squished between their toes, but as long as you are relaxed and patient, we will capture some great memories for you without stressing your child or you out.


Your Cake Smash Experience


Your Experience

Your Portrait Experience and your Cake Smash is about you, your family and especially your Baby!

When you choose Three Hearts Photography to record this very special occasion, we ensure that your memories are captured in a fun and playful way. We capture the giggles and the laughs, the messy fingers and the gooey toes, the cheeky tasting and all the moments in between. 

You will have something so cute and so fun to remember this amazing time.

Turning ONE is an Important Milestone in their life and something we know that you want to Celebrate and Remember for a long time to come. That's why we want to make this as fun and as memorable for you and your family as we can.


One Year Old Cake Smash



If you have a baby who is about to turn one, just turned one or even turned one a little while ago but you missed their First Birthday Portraits, then I would love to have a chat about how we can capture something special and amazing for you and your little baby.

Mummas are the heart of the family and so often the ones who are left out of the photos because we are the ones who want to make sure that these moments are captured. Or maybe we are too afraid to be in the photo because we constantly worry about the way we look, the way we smile, how many kilos we think we need to lose in order to get a photo taken. But it's not just us who are missing out. It's our kids who are missing out. Here's why Mummas need to be in photos...
