Having your baby turn one is such an amazing milestone in their life. I love watching my clients grow from a teeny, tiny newborn to a walking, talking one year-old. And the most fantastic way to celebrate turning one is with a gorgeous Cake Smash session!
I love designing my cake smash sessions. First, I have my clients choose a color palette or a theme and then we go from there. We work together to find vendors to supply the decorations and we work together to find a cake design and different outfits that would match the theme. I provide all the outfits for the pre-cake smash and my parents usually provide the cake smash outfit as it can get quite messy!
This may be one of my favorite cake smash sessions ever! I found a vendor called The Land of Flowers, who made paper flowers that would match the color palette, and then, I hung the beautiful paper flowers in the background in addition to garlands of vines and accompanied the scene with bunches of fresh yellow flowers. This little beauty wore outfits and headbands from Dollcake and Goodnight Moon. And the finishing touch was a gorgeous yellow ombre cake from The Lucky Cupcake Company. The tree stump is a favorite and it is from Intuition Backgrounds. Take a look at my gallery for cake smash session theme ideas for your session.
The best part of the photoshoot is always the cake. This baby girl loved getting her hands into the frosting, and even got some on her toes! Look at her beautiful smile as she enjoys her first taste of cake. She could not be happier and I was thrilled that I got to photograph this memorable moment in her precious life.
The first year of life for your baby goes so quickly and before you know it, your little bundle of joy is turning one. Cake Smash photo sessions are a great way to capture this event. Contact me to book your little one’s session today.
A fun tip: These photo sessions can be done prior to their child’s first birthday to use the photos for either the invitation or thank you card, or even have the photos on display during the party itself.
