fun – simple – timeless


Cake Smashes are the ultimate way to celebrate!

Usually done around a baby’s first birthday, we will capture some portraits of your baby, any siblings and family images. You’re in the studio already so we might as well take the opportunity to update those family portraits!

Next comes the cake! Supplied by Always Belle Photography, this cake (as yummy as it is!), is designed to be smashed, the icing licked off and big chunks shoved into tiny mouths. Your baby will get messy and will have a lot of fun in the process!

To finish up, we will do a quick bath to begin the cleaning up process. And because who doesn’t like a cute bath photo!

These sessions are designed to be simple and sweet with the focus on your baby and their joy rather than elaborate backdrops and setups.

Whatever it may be that you are looking for in a baby photographer, Always Belle Photography is here to deliver with welcoming service and stunning results that you will not find elsewhere.

Cake Smash sessions are $125. Images are available for purchase following your session. Don’t like any of your images? We have a full money back guarentee….but don’t worry we will do everything we can to ensure you love them. 





When is the best time to photograph cake smash?

Cake Smashes are best done to celebrate your baby turning one!

Where will the session be held?
Sessions are held in my beautiful studio in Eaglemont Village, Melbourne where we have access to all the equipment required and the environment can be kept comfortable for everyone.
How long does a cake smash session take?

Babies at this age often don’t have long before they got bored, hungry or upset so we need to move quickly! Most cake smash sessions will take between 45mins – 1 hour.

Is it possible to have family portraits taken too?

Of course! A cake smash session begins with photos of your baby on their own and then family ones before we then get messy and bring out the cake!

When should I book?

Any time you like! Just note that my diary does fill up a few weeks in advance with babies so the more notice the better. 

How long do we have to wait until the images are ready?
Not long because images will be available to view immediately after your session! Whilst baby is being dressed and ready for the trip home, I will prepare your images to be viewed on the big screen where you can choose any that you would like to purchase.
Can I just purchase digital images?

Absolutely. Once you see your images you will choose a digital file collection of the photographs that you love. Following this you will be able to see, touch and explore all of our products to choose the best way for you and your family to display their photographs.

If you have never booked a professional photographer before, the idea can be very daunting!

To make this process a little easier for you, I have put together a little step-by-step guide so you know how your experience will develop over time!

Here at Always Belle Photography, I want to give you the best experience of capturing this amazing moment that will result in beautiful memories for you to display around your home.

If you have any further questions about how this experience will be unique for you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch here!



Let’s get you booked in! Firstly, head over to fill out my contact form to check my availability around your due date. Due to also actively working as a nurse, I am only available to take on a limited amount of sessions each week. Don’t waste any time and get in touch! A session fee is required to confirm your session.

To contact us, click here!



What I normally do is pencil in your due date and then we schedule the exact date and time for the session once your baby arrives. We try to get all of the details taken care of prior to the birth since things in that first week can get a bit overwhelming at times!

If you have any ideas of how you would like your images styled we can also discuss this prior to your session, otherwise, I will tailor a session just for you. Once your baby arrives and your session is booked, I will email you a small guide for how to prepare on the morning of your shoot!




This is when all the magic happens! The hardest part of your day should be leaving the house, as once you arrive it’s time to relax! Have a coffee and a muffin and put your feet up….some parents will even have a little sleep! You can let me know what colours you would like throughout your gallery, any poses that you do like or don’t like and we can begin capturing memories of your beautiful baby and your family. I will aim for a gallery of 20-30 images.

It’s time to see your photographs! Following your session, we will take a short break to prepare your photographs and they will then be ready to view in a same-day cinematic experience just shortly after your session finishes.  Beginning with a custom-made slideshow to music you will be able to sit back and enjoy looking at your new family!

Following this viewing, you will then be able to decide which photographs you would like to purchase and how you would like to display your photographs. The studio is full of samples for you to view, feel and touch and I will be there to help you if you need it!

Payment plans are available if needed.
