Pink & Gold Cake Smash Fun | Guelph, ON Birthday Photographer
When mom requested a pink and gold cake smash birthday session, I was super excited. Normally, I’m minimalistic and quite simple. However this time, I felt the need to make it a little bit over the top. It was so fun to watch this session come together. From the far too puffy tutu (an I am NOT a tulle person but this thing called my name) to the amazing gold painted cake, this whole session was perfect. Add in one of the most beautiful little faces around, and it’s spectacular goodness.
Our cake smash sessions are customised from start to finish – that’s the beauty of custom photography, right?! The session theme and colour scheme is up to mama (I’m happy to make suggestions if asked) and then I execute the session from the pre-cake images to the décor, balloons, cake and outfit. The works!! I cover it all so all you have to do is show up. It’s easy peasy. This little duckling arrived in her jammies (is there a better way to travel?!) and I took care of the rest. They are a lot of work for me on my end, but I love providing a service to parents where all they have to do is bring their baby and ta-da, the rest is done!
Here are some of my favourites from our slightly over-the-top but oh-so-cute pink and gold cake smash first birthday session:
So many people ask where I get all of my props from.
Well, I knit a lot of my knits. My husband makes a lot of my wooden items…like this bed.
This adorable outfit is made up of items from two of my favourite CANADIAN vendors(!!!)
Pup & Frank Photography Props provided the outfit and the headband is from Myrtle and Moss.
This sweet face. I love this little set of images like little headshots of her sweet expressions.
Once we capture all of the pre-cake “clean photo” goodness, we move onto the main show. My studio space is tiny, but I’m lucky that I can have two set ups going at once. I set up most of the cake smash and we do pre-cake photos on the other side. This gives us the best of both worlds without making baby wait too long between.
She kept looking at me like, “Am I REALY allowed to be doing this? Are you SURE?” Yes baby, I’m sure you are allowed to dig into that cake and eat it with your hands. Have fun and happy birthday LOL.
Ahhhh her beautiful eyes and smile. So pretty.
When the babies start getting a little bored of their cake, I introduce a simple wooden spoon which brings them right back to it for a few more images. It’s amazing how much children love spoons. We encourage baby to bang on the cake, eat from the spoon, etc. and the spoon images are always my favourites.
