We love being able to create a baby cake smash photography session that is one of a kind for each client. Olivia’s mom wanted something sweet and simple and more on the minimalistic side. She also wanted some classic portraits that captured her little one’s adorable personality.
We chose a simple white background and used greens and purple flowers, accented with ornate, white lanterns. The cake was a white, naked cake, and dressed up with some more flowers, giving it a somewhat boho vibe. From our closet, mom chose a sweet purple knit romper and a coordinating headband to complete the look.
We offer a wide array of outfits, ranging from newborn to toddler, to outfit your little one perfectly for any session. Most are specifically chosen from online boutiques, meant purposefully for photography. They are handmade and really add the perfect touch to each baby cake smash photography session. Etsy is one of our favorite online hotspots to find and purchase from.
The session began with classic, natural light shots. We chose a chair and the bed to as sitting props and then moved over to our weathered, rustic wood backdrop. Olivia fit perfectly in weaved basket and sat so nicely. When mom had initially reached out to inquire and schedule, she had mentioned that Olivia was already 15 months old! Typically, our first birthday and cake smash photography sessions are done around the 11-12 month mark. So when we heard that she was 15 months and of course, walking, we were a little nervous that she wouldn’t want to sit or stay for the cake.
Surprisingly though, Olivia was the perfect little client! She rocked her session and thoroughly enjoyed her cake! Nothing is more fun than watching a one year old go to town on some cake! Cake Smash sessions truly are so much fun! We usually end up laughing the entire time and come away with some really fun and beautiful images of such a special stage
