Cake Smash for One-Year-Olds

Some people have never heard of a cake smash for one-year-olds before, and it always surprises us to hear that! Of course, we are in the cake smash business so we are pretty familiar with what this looks like… but in case you aren’t let me explain!

What is a Cake Smash Session?

A cake smash is simply as it sounds – a baby with an upcoming first birthday is photographed while smashing into a cake! Some parents go all out with a themed session while others choose a more crisp, clean, and classic look. Either way, you’re bound to see some smiles, maybe some tears, and LOTS of mess.

Do all babies eat cake??

There are a ton of parents who have never served their one-year-old cake before, especially before the first birthday, and they’re unsure whether or not their little one will actually eat the cake during the session. Don’t worry – we will help you prepare your little one for their session beforehand, and if they still aren’t into the cake we will still get some great images. One mom and dad were a little disappointed that their daughter didn’t enjoy the cake at the session and mentioned, “If this were a giant bowl of fruit or a big watermelon, she’d have destroyed it and eaten the whole thing!” If you know your little one is just not a sweets fan, let us know. We can adjust the session to whatever food you think they’ll love best!

What about family pictures during a cake smash session?

One of the benefits of joining our Collective Membership is that you will have a family session and cake smash session all at the same time. We don’t do this for everyone because we spend extra time at these sessions to make sure baby doesn’t get too overwhelmed with all the pictures and outfit changes. Typically, non-Collective clients will book a Signature Cake Smash session which is about 45 minutes and includes milestone pictures and a cake smash portion, or a Simplicity Cake Smash which is a 20-minute cake smash only session.

When should I book a cake smash session for my one-year-old?

Some parents book their sessions when baby is only a couple of months old. This will ensure you have a space on the calendar far in advance. We recommend reaching out no later than when your baby is 10 months old to make sure we have availability and you’re able to get your products back in time for their first birthday.
