This cake smash photoshoot was one that is extremely special to me. Everyone, meet Ollie! He is my little guy and I may be biased, but he’s the best little guy to photograph ever! It is so much fun to create a theme and just have fun with a one year old cake smash! I’m not sure where this trend came from, but I’m for it! Ollie turned one a few days later so this was his birthday smash cake! He is so special to us because it took us three years to have him. I still cannot believe I have a toddler. Do you want me to let you in on a little secret about this session? It was actually in my living room!
My first tip for your cake smash photos is to plan it around a theme! If you decide to have me photograph this huge milestone for your family I can help with this! It can be so much fun to choose a theme. I suggest going through Pinterest and looking at some inspiration if you’re stuck on this step! If you’re stuck on this still, think of things that your little one loves and is drawn to! Is he or she obsessed with animals? Maybe a farm cake smash theme would be perfect!
My next tip for you as your cake smash photoshoot is coming up, is to have fun and go shopping for decor! You can go so sweet and simple, or go all out. You do not have to do an extravagant set up to have a super fun and sweet cake smash photoshoot! I would look on amazon, party city, hobby lobby, etc to find some decor that fits your theme you chose!
The next tip for you, is to just slow down and enjoy this milestone with your little one. Hop in a few photos with your sweet one year old and grab some short videos behind the scenes! The BIGGEST TIP however, is to not skip this session. Document your baby turning one year old because this cake smash photoshoot and this memory you can look back on forever.
