Isn’t this little guy adorable? His family came to the studio to celebrate his milestone first birthday with a cake smash session. He loves monkeys so his set consisted of a monkey theme. This cake is from Leah’s Cake Creations, and always, she did a great job of creating this colourful and playful monkey-themed cake.
When preparing your child for their cake smash session, remember that it may get messy. Some kids aren’t too interested in the cake, and others love to dig in and eat and get messy, so choose an outfit that you don’t mind getting dirty. You may want to put a little bit of cake on your finger and let them taste it – they may not know that it is edible. Even if they don’t dive right it, we are always able to capture cute photos of them exploring the cake, even if they just take small little bites.
This family involved the older siblings in the photoshoot, and we were able to capture some sweet photos of this little boy and his older sisters. They certainly love their brother and it was fun to photograph the family together. His big sisters also helped to show him that he could eat the cake too!
Cake smash sessions have grown in popularity, and it’s fun to get the family involved too. Be prepared to clean up afterwards, bring your child a change of clothes, and baby wipes plus a plastic bag to put their dirty clothes in. Many times the cake isn’t too destroyed and we will send the remainder home with you if you like. Despite the cakes getting a little smashed, they still taste delicious!
