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.
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.
We always start cake smash sessions on a neutral backdrop with minimal props for a few timeless birthday portraits with the focus on baby before moving to the styled setup and bringing out the cake! Finally, we will finish the session by cleaning off in either a bubble bath or a milk bath in our clawfoot tub prop. This gives us a few extra adorable smiles before we call it a day!
Our cake smash sessions are custom designed for each client. All props, backdrop and a cake that perfectly matches the setup are provided and ready for you when you arrive. We have a selection of outfits available in the studio but you are more than welcome to bring your own as well.
