Cake Smash

Los Angeles Cake Smash Photography

Cake Smash sessions take place in my studio. I provide all the props, set up and décor. I have a beautiful collection of dresses, tutu skirts, outfits for boys and cake accessories. Cake is not included. Please note, if the baby is walking already, I cannot book you for the cake smash. The best time for the cake smash is 1 month before the actual birthday (babies usually are not walking yet and they do not have stranger danger thing)

On the day of the session, I will start by taking portrait photos of your baby wearing a beautiful outfit, followed by cake smash and then bubble bath at the end.  Cake Smash sessions are unpredictable, but always so much fun!

I would suggest to schedule Cake Smash session after your baby’s first nap. Most of my baby photo sessions take place mid-morning. Please note, that some babies don’t like the texture of the cake, please test it out a few times so they are familiar with what they will be dealing with at the session. Buttercream frosted cakes work best. Please avoid red colored cakes and chocolate cakes (they don’t look good on the photos)
