There’s nothing that calls for celebration like your baby’s first birthday! What a special moment for you and your family, as your one-year old gets to finally experience the best things in life. We’re talking about cake, of course! Cake smash photography is such a fun and lively way to capture and celebrate the things you love most about your baby: their joy-filled spirit, their sense of wonder, and their newfound love for confectioneries.
At Puddles and Pearls Photography, we are proud to offer high quality cake smash photography in Colorado Springs. At our studio in Old Colorado City, we have props and scenes to make your baby’s birthday celebration come to life, while making memories that will last a lifetime.
What Is Cake Smash Photography?
Cake smash photography is a fun, exciting, and delicious way to celebrate 365 days of life (and a year of little sleep for you)! At Puddles and Pearls Photography, your baby is positioned with a cake (or cake smash alternative like avocados or watermelon slices) and has free range to smash it, play in it, and mess with it in any way they please while we take high resolution photos.
Before your baby starts smashing into the cake, we will take portraits to capture the happiness and beauty of your baby. This is also a way to take birthday photos for your one-year-old to remember forever. Once those photos are taken, that is when the cake comes out and the real fun happens. There’s nothing like seeing the joy in a baby’s face when they start smashing around in the cake. It is some of the most precious moments that can be captured for you to view for years and years to come.
Finally, we will finish the session in either a bubble bath or a milk bath. This is called a cake splash photo session because it is a way to take adorable bath time photos for you to enjoy as well as a moment to clean your baby off.
What will a Session Look Like at Puddles and Pearls Photography?
Because this is a messier form of photography, we provide all the outfits, backdrops, and props at our Colorado Springs Photography Studio. We take the mess out of the picture, so you can enjoy this special time. Our sessions are also custom designed to fit any theme you may be planning on.
When it comes to the cake, for liability purposes, we require that you bring the cake to the session. We do not provide those for you. We do, however, work with a local bakery who would be able to design a cake that would match the theme of your photoshoot; you would just need pick up the cake and bring the cake to the session.
We make sure to take all the appropriate steps to ensure that your baby is safe and enjoying their experience the entire time. You will always be able to view the sessions and stay with them to make sure they are doing just fine. This will be such a rewarding and beautiful experience that you get to have with your baby.
