What better way to celebrate your baby’s first birthday while also capturing this important milestone than with a fun cake smash session!? This funky photography trend just keeps getting more and more popular each year! We wanted to take you through beautiful baby Aubree’s recent cake smash session – As you can see, she had a TON of fun!

In this session, Aubree’s mama allowed us the creativity to design her set, so we chose a neutral, bohemian theme and added just a splash of pink! With our custom created sets and specially crafted cakes by Leah’s Cake Creations, everything naturally came together beautifully. To help us create some boho flare, Little Local Wreaths created these stunning dried flower and pampas grass bouquets, which really tied the look together. We were so excited to work with Little Local Wreaths again after our amazing collaboration during our boho mini sessions last summer! If you have specific ideas about how you’d like your backdrop and set to look, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask us! We love incorporating special props or ideas to help you achieve your perfect vision. Check out some of our previous work here for some inspiration! 

If your little one’s first birthday is coming up, this is an amazing way to capture a very special milestone. All of our packages come with high res digital files that are chosen using our online client gallery. They also all include our custom souvenir 12×12 plaque mount collage. Most of our packages always start with some pre-smash portraits, so we can capture a few milestone moments before things get messy! This gives the opportunity for your baby to have a quick outfit change. If you’re a little unsure about your baby getting a bit messy, don’t worry! We also offer a milestone birthday session which still includes a birthday set up and custom background, just without the cake!

We offer three different Cake Smash Sessions and packages to choose from:

The Celebration – $700 

This includes a set up with the family and the baby’s siblings, as well as a pre-smash set up AND the cake smash set up. There are 3 outfit changes allowed for babe and 1 outfit for other subjects.

The Party – $600 

This session includes the pre-smash set-up, plus the cake smash set up. There are 2-3 outfits allowed, including the smash set-up. 

The Cake – $499

This session is perfect for those who only want pictures of the smashing of the cake. It includes a basic set just for baby, and does not include any themes. 

All of our sessions can be done in-studio, or on location. All packages also include the option of an exciting add-on: bathtub splash sessions! These are a fantastic way to clean up and end the shoot. You’ll also have a happy, clean baby to bring home! For more details on any of these packages, you can head to our website here for extra information. 

One of the coolest things about my job is watching my clients’ families grow. From a client’s maternity photoshoot, to their newborn baby portraits, followed by 6 month and 1 year baby cake smash and milestones, I have the pleasure of capturing it all.These are some of life’s most precious and intimate moments, and I am so thankful that I am invited to be a little part of so many wonderful women’s lives. 

If you are an expectant mother and know that you want to capture it all, we offer Baby’s First year packages, so that you don’t have to worry about missing a thing!
