Cake smash photoshoot to celebrate your baby’s milestone

A cake smash photoshoot is a delightful and fun way to celebrate your little one’s first birthday. This playful session captures the joy and excitement as your baby digs into their very own cake, creating adorable, messy, and memorable moments. Perfect for preserving the laughter and personality of this special milestone, a cake smash photoshoot offers a unique way to commemorate your child’s first year of life.

FACT: Babies are happiest when they are covered in food.

I’ve done cake smash photoshoots since 2013 and have been privileged to meet so many beautiful babies during that time. Crawling around the floor making funny noises, making a fool of myself, and having fun with your little one is what I enjoy most about my job as a baby and newborn

Babies just love to explore their world through touch and taste. This is why cake smash photoshoots are really popular! Cake smash portraits are great fun and are a fantastic way of capturing incredibly cute baby photos.

WATCH how much fun it could be during a cake smash photo session.

Messy and Fun 1st Birthday Cake Smash

1. Baby and family photos first. At the beginning of the session, we spend a bit of time getting to know each other. We do normal baby portraits, family photos and siblings. Check baby photoshoot work here

2. Bringing out the actual cake and letting baby smash it and dig in properly. No stops here, messier, better.

3. The last stage of the photo sessions is the bubble bath. We let the baby splash and go wild. Very often this is the most fun part for babies.
