Why book a Brooklyn cake smash session?

If you’re like a lot of the soon-to-be-mothers of a one year old I meet, you may be a little stressed out planning the birthday party. And who can blame you! After all, your baby is about to turn one. Believe me, I can absolutely relate.

Let me tell you something, though. The first birthday is such a huge milestone and what better way to document it than with a cake smash session. In this moment, we are going to create memories that will show how special a one year old is. And every single picture we take will showcase the pure joy of being one. A cake smash session can take approximately 1-2 hours with 1-2 outfit changes and we can include a few sibling and or family photos if requested.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: there is an unparalleled joy that radiates from a one year old. A joy so unique to being one that it’s impossible to replicate under any other circumstance. These cake smash photos of your one year old will be treasured by you, your significant other, your friends and family and, yes, your child, forever.

For the cake smash session, we’ll take a variety of photographs of your child. We’ll get photographs of your child before we let them have cake, eating the cake and what the mess looks like after the cake.

Preparing for your Brooklyn Cake Smash session

A cake smash session can go two ways, and I’m prepared to photograph either!

Some one year olds love cake and will go to town eating the cake and they just can’t get enough. Other one year olds are scared of the cake, they will cry and won’t eat any cake. I like parents to be prepared for both possibilities.

When a one year old cries from the cake some parents can be disappointed. I understand this can be difficult when you wanted the cute, messy and funny cake smash pictures. Children have a mind of their own and we will just go with the flow. Although this works for some children it isn’t guaranteed to work for all children as each child has their own personality.

Whatever the outcome, know that this session is definitely going to be one to cherish as they only turn one once! During your consultation, we’ll discuss the various creative ways we can set up the cake smash session, I’ll take it upon myself to do most of the planning for you.
