Cake Smash Photography Sydney

A cake smash photography session is a perfect way to celebrate your baby’s very first birthday. Enjoy delightful photos of your child playing with a huge, colourful cake plus a bonus bubble bath series (that’s just the icing on the cake). Chapter One Photography is a Sydney cake smash photographer that will look after your child for their cake smash session.


If your baby is about to turn one, then it’s the perfect time to book in your cake smash in Sydney! Every baby reacts differently, some play with the icing, some gobble up the cake, and most just make one big, adorable mess. The result is a picture-perfect, quirky photoshoot. And don’t worry, we will clean up, not you.


We will coordinate a theme with coloured decorations to suit you, just let us know what you have in mind or talk to us about the options. Many of our parents use the images as birthday invitations or thank you cards, in which case call us well before the date so we can do the shoot and have images ready for you.  Others choose the session as a fun thing to do on the actual day.

Cake Smash Photography North Sydney

We can do a cake smash whenever you like, we recommend around 11-14 months is best. We also do older children up to 3 years.  The session ends with a lovely relaxing bubble bath so all babies go home clean and content.


If you just want to capture your first child's birthday without a cake we can do that too!


All our cake smash sessions take place in our studio in Waverton, on Sydney’s lower north shore.  Ample free parking on site. Contact us as your next cake smash photographer “so you never forget”.

This is the full package.  Beautiful family and baby portraits followed by the cake Smash​.  











Theme options

Your baby is turning one and has opened a new chapter in their storybook, give them a cake smash so you never forget.


Every child is different, and so is every Cake Smash. We love to create an individual experience that captures what is unique about your one-year-old. Additional, y we like the photographs to be about the child and not the set decorations.  For those reasons we tend not to do really busy backgrounds.  


Once you have booked we will help you with suggestions for theme options for you to consider to get the perfect memories of your little one and their big day.
