Cake Smash Photography Packages
Ellen first reached out to us back in March to schedule her daughter’s cake smash session and wanted to do it around her birthday which was in May. It was such a compliment to us when we learned that she was referred to us by her co-worker who has used our photography services. We began planning her little Ashley’s cake smash session by discussing dates, times that would work best for her schedule, and themes. We had some time for planning so that is always helpful.
Cake smash Photography for Girls
Mom wasn’t sure what theme she wanted for Ashley’s first birthday pictures, so I directed her to our cake smash gallery on our site as well as our social media pages for some inspiration. She choose one of our most requested scenes for girls and it’s one of my favorites as well! It has some soft pinks, creams, and a hint of gold color. We always ask for parents to email the outfit the baby will wear for the session just so we can help parents coordinate a theme or make sure it goes well with what they have chosen. Her outfit matched perfectly! Mom decided that she was going to bring her own cake, we do have the option of ordering one for parents if they would like. It is very important to have the cake match the scene as far as colors and size. The setup, outfit, and cake all have to come together!
Cake smash Photography Details
Anytime we have a cake smash session I always get a little nervous about how the baby will react to the cake. Some babies dive in head first, hand first and some just crawl away from it. Its always a surprise what they will do, we hope for the first two options 🙂 This is one of the reasons we do give parents some preparation details before their session so they are prepared. Ashley completely rocked her session! We started out with some family portraits with mom, dad, and big brother, followed by her pre- cake smash portraits, introduced the cake to her which she was very accepting of and last but not least her bath after the smash. You can view some sneak peeks from her session below.
