Welcome and thank you for visiting Cake Smash with Kate, that's me!
Cake smash photography started in America a few years ago, but the trend has since made its way to Australian shores. The cake smash is usually done around the child’s first birthday, and the photos are often used on the first birthday party invitations, Thank You cards or just to mark the milestone. It's often the first time a child has tasted cake and been allowed to do whatever they want with as much mess as possible! That said a Cake Smash can be enjoyed at any age and is becoming more popular with 2nd, 5th, 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th and 50th birthdays. And why not! Any excuse for cake right?!
My love for Cake Smashes started in 2017 with my daughter's first birthday and has rapidly grown from there. I have since styled and photographed over 300 cake smashes and feel very blessed to be in my fourth year of business. Now at home with my two young children I offer photo sessions part time on Brisbane's Northside in the beautiful outdoors and in my brand new home studio in Everton Park, QLD 4053.
My studies include Cert II Film and Television Production at Prides Business Collage in Adelaide and Cert IV Photography at Tafe Queensland and beyond that I am self taught and forever learning.
Sessions are fun and relaxed and I would love to work with your ideas to make them unique. So let's celebrate your milestones together and capture those special moments with a some gorgeous images to last a life time.
' We are so happy with our photos. Can’t thank Kate enough for such an awesome experience! Everything made easy for us, just turned up on the day and Kate did the rest.
