We specialize in cake smash photography in Midland Park, New Jersey and love celebrating first birthdays! Our goal is to capture this special milestone in both a fun and natural way. Our first birthday and cake smash session includes classic portraits of your little one, family and sibling photos, the ultimate cake smash (cake included) and the perfect, after the smash, splash tub! We promise you will walk away from the session with the best of all.
James’ cake smash was A Great Adventure themed session and who can argue with that. That first year is nothing short of a great adventure… are we right? Our consult with mom led us in the direction of vintage, old whirl travel. Props included vintage trunks and suitcases, old-fashioned books, a globe and a vintage map backdrop. The cake was a sky blue and accented with puffy, white clouds. All the elements of a Great Adventure were set into motion.
Typically, our cake smash sessions begin with the classic, family photos. We have found over time, that these photos go a lot smoother before introducing the cake. Plus, sometimes it’s just easier to leave the messy until the end. However, the sessions are flexible, so if you prefer to have the smash done first, it’s definitely not a problem. James’ session though did in fact begin with family. Big sister Kayla, who is also a previous client, joined in on the pictures and provided us with a few silly bed shots.
Our full bed is a new addition to the studio and we have absolutely been loving it. We first introduced it at this years holiday sessions and since then it has become a great photo prop. Stripped of holiday bed and dressed in just a simple white quilt, the bed has provided an endless amount of candid and comfy photos!
The snuggle was real for James and his mama! The two shared some super adorable hugs and cuddles, while dad and James had silly fun and a ton of up in the air shots! Cake smash photography is the perfect way to capture the fun and memorable one year milestone.
