Mamma, you made it — It is a year of hard work, keeping your baby alive, getting adjusted to cold coffee and tea, learning how to speak baby all while trying to keep yourself sane and alive. This cake smash photography session is about your little ones’ first birthday but it is also about you. 

The professional PTR STUDIO or in a family favourite forest, leafy park, or perhaps your own garden at home can be the scene for your little one’s Cake Smash session, we have so many beautiful locations within Cape Town if the studio is not your favourite option. However, if a beautiful set with a theme and decor scene if your first choice, I do everything for you, the setup and clean up is all up to me and my team, so you don’t have to worry mom, this mess is not your worry and dads don’t worry you won’t need to worry about a sticky baby in your car,  As I am a photographer in Cape Town you will receive your preview images on the same day as the shoot for that all-important Happy Birthday post for social media. 

I don’t believe in charging for double the cuteness for twins or multiples, however,  we may have to charge for double the icing should you wish to have an additional cake for this session. Having them smash one cake is so cute but having their own cake and watching how differently they respond to their cakes is also something very special. Cake Smash photography sessions are also possible for children over the age of 1 as well. 

There are two packages available;


This includes a beautiful simple, paired back modern set design and a cake (made and designed to your preference) and includes a complimentary pre-session consultation to talk through your ideas for the shoot and share with you all set design and cake options for your choosing.


This package includes all your preferred themed set designs, props, outfits, flowers, themed cake and any other fabulous elements that you would like to incorporate into the design and theme for this shoot.  We even have a confetti cannon and bubble maker in the studio!  After your little one(s) have had fun devouring their very own cake, pawing at the icing with their gorgeous chubby fingers – and toes – we will move on to a bubble bath set up and continue to take bubble-filled pictures whilst they play in the bath.

We will work collaboratively with you on all the details for the shoot starting with a complimentary pre-session consultation with Amy.  We will pull together design mood-boards and set design sketches as well as be on hand to assist with any preparation advice ahead of your session.
