Cake Smash Session

So, your sweet baby is turning one—congratulations! Here is the absolute cutest (and messiest) way to celebrate this important milestone. It’s a session made specifically for a baby’s first birthday.

The baby will do whatever they want with the cake, while I photograph.

It is really fun!

However, if you prefer to have a Cake Smash without the cake, that’s also an option. We can also do a Baby’s First Birthday Portraits.
The Playtime Bathtub Fun can be added at the end, if desired.

Cake Smash Session

Our Style

Our cake smashes are full of color, fun and super messy!

We use theme backdrops, cute outfits for boys and a huge collection of themed custom dresses for girls. We can also work on balloon setups, teaming up with the amazing balloon artist NattyBalloons, for an additional fee.

My goal is to capture your baby’s first birthday in a fun, memorable way!

Scheduling

The Cake Smash sessions often take place a month or so before their actual birthday.

Consultation

All Cake Smash sessions are designed specifically for you, and include a consultation session in the studio or on the phone. During the consultation, we will discuss the theme and wardrobe.

I have a huge collection of Cake Smash themes, but if you can’t find a favorite, I can make arrangements for your desired theme if time permits.

Your Cake Smash Session

During Cake Smash sessions I photograph the baby in the following order:

  • Baby gets to have some fun images in the setup before they’re all covered in cake.
  • Then we introduce the cake, and most one year olds can’t quite believe their luck!
  • Finally, it’s bath time in the studio! The baby can have a good splash and get clean, all while enjoying their favorite bath time activities.

Wardrobe

KLP provides everything for your session. We have a beautiful collection of props, backdrops and outfits available. The studio uses natural materials for accessories that are gentle to your baby’s skin. Everything is washed after each session with detergents that are free of harsh chemicals.
