Tips for A Successful Cake Smash Photo

Hey there! So, your little one’s first birthday is coming up, and you want to celebrate in style with a cake smash photo session? Great choice! Let’s dive into some tips and tricks to make sure your cake smash is as epic as possible.

  • Plan Like a Pro

      • Let’s plan a fun party for your child! Choose a theme that they’ll love, like unicorns, superheroes, or a rainbow explosion.
      • Find a photographer who’s a pro at capturing messy, adorable chaos. Trust me, you’ll want someone who knows how to handle the frosting tornado.
  • Cake Conundrum

      • Now, let’s talk about cake. You want one that looks as good as it tastes. Bonus points if it matches your theme! But remember, it’s gonna get demolished, so don’t go breaking the bank on this bad boy.
  • Location, Location, Location

      • Indoor or outdoor? That is the question. Consider the weather and lighting when choosing your spot. And make sure there’s plenty of room for your little one to unleash their cake-slaying skills!
  • Fashion Forward

      • Dress your munchkin in something cute but practical. Trust me, you don’t want to deal with a wardrobe malfunction mid-smash. Elastic waistbands are your BFF here.
  • Timing Is Everything

      • Schedule your session when your kiddo is at their peak happiness. That usually means after a nap or a snack. Hangry babies don’t make for good photo ops!
  • Capture the Chaos

      • Let the cake smashing commence! Encourage your little one to dive in headfirst (literally). The messier, the better! And don’t forget to snap away – you never know when you’ll catch the perfect shot.
  • Clean-Up Crew

      • When the sugar rush wears off and the crumbs settle, it’s time for clean-up duty. Stock up on wipes, towels, and maybe even a hazmat suit. Trust me, you’re gonna need ’em!
  • Embrace the Mess

    • Last but not least, embrace the chaos. Remember, this is all about having fun and making memories. So, don’t stress about the mess – just enjoy the ride!


And there you have it, folks – your guide to the ultimate cake smash extravaganza! Follow these tips, let loose, and get ready for a birthday bash your little one won’t soon forget. Happy smashing!



My photography business started with me taking pictures for friends and family so I can create memories for them to cherish. When I started looking into how I can become a better photographer, I found that I had an eye for taking snaps of those cute lumpkins. I am honored every day when I take care of the most beautiful families and tiny babies on earth- not only in Milton but other areas of Ontario, CA.
