Cake Smash

Cake Smash Milestone Sessions are portraits taken between 11 and 12 months of age. I’ll create beautiful portraits of your soon-to-be 1-year-old having his or her first taste of cake.


Cake Smash Milestone Session


This milestone portrait session is the most fun you will will have! This style of session is the most popular: you get to see your baby destroy a birthday cake.

The best time to book this session is when your baby is 11-months-old, so you’ll have these fun birthday portraits returned in time for his or her birthday.

I’ll order a cake from my favorite bakery and I’ll have the props ready. Please let me know if your baby has any dietary restrictions. The cake will be egg and dairy-free, but gluten-free is also an option.

We’ll get to do two distinct wardrobe/set changes. More formal portraits first with a cute or fancy outfit, then we’ll change and bring out the cake! Some babies dive in face first while some only swipe at the frosting. It’s impossible to know how each child will react, but there’s always laughter. If you’re concerned your little one won’t be interested in the cake, I have a few tricks to gently persuade them, don’t worry.

The best part is: I get all the clean up! All you have to do is clean up your little one. I know, the last think you need is to clean up another messy meal from the floor! Don’t worry about frosting on the floor and cake on the ceiling, I’ve got this :)

Studio amenities include complimentary snacks, organic tea, cold drinks, a fully-stocked changing table, comfy chairs, and a large sink with baby soap, towels, and lotion. There’s also a baby scale if you’d like to do a weigh-in.

I can’t wait to meet you and help celebrate your little one’s 1st birthday!
