1st Year Cake smash Session at Mint Room Studios in Toronto

March 18, 2020

What better way to celebrate your baby’s first year milestone than with a simple and timeless photo session that also ends with a cake smash session. Every parent would like to make the first birthday for their baby so unique and memorable and we’re here to help with a photo shoot capturing your adorable soon-to-be 1 year old.

As a lifestyle photographer, I love simple, authentic photos that focus on you and your little one. Every cake smash session includes both family photos as well as candid playful ones of your child snuggled in your arms.

Whether you chose to do an indoor or outdoor session – both are unique and beautiful. Our simple cake smash set ups are designed with your vision in mind. During our consultation, we discuss your goals. This mom chose to simply focus on her beautiful daughter and incorporate a balloon garland with her favourite colour tones.

Whether it is their first birthday or a day in the life of your family, capturing beautiful images of your child is a wonderful way to celebrate the many milestones they go through as they grow. These are the moments you want to remember forever.

What’s included in your cake smash session?

  • Up to 45 minutes in-studio photo session at Mint Room Studios
  • Lifestyle family photos (we start with family portraits)
  • Phone consult to plan your session based on your vision
  • All balloons, clothing and props (so you have little to worry about)
  • 30 edited high res digital files via downloadable online gallery chose by you

If your little one is turning 1 soon – I’d love to capture their first birthday milestone session with a cake smash added whether it’s in-studio or outdoors. I also offer gift certificates which make the perfect gift for parents. You can contact me to set up a consultation and we can discuss all the details to customize your photography experience.
