Babies change so fast and it’s so important to capture each and every milestone of them!
A cake smash session is a great and exciting way to celebrate baby’s first year! At Anchor Studio, we always have lots of fun during these birthday sessions and do everything to make the session as stress-free as possible for parents – that includes – portraits with parents at the beginning, baby photos alone prior to the cake smash, the cake as well as outfits for mom and baby.
I highly recommend to book your cake smash session at least 2 weeks in advance, so we have enough time to plan and edit your photos. Our cake smash birthday milestone sessions take place in our natural light studio space located in The Junction. The candid portraits we capture will be the ones parents and this little girl will cherish most when she’s older.
INDIVIDUAL PHOTOS OF BABY ALONE
The milestone portion of your child’s session follows the family set ups. Milestone portion is where we focus on developmental changes since our last session together. For 12 months, it’s usually standing or walking, pulling up, clapping their hands, smiling, and really showcasing their personality.
FAMILY PHOTOS TAKE PLACE FIRST
Family sessions are lifestyle in nature, meaning I embrace the spirit of your family. I encourage you to play with your kiddo, interact with your spouse and feel at ease. Family photos take place at the beginning so that little one has time to warm up to me. Plus, baby will be smashing a cake after the family part so this makes sure baby is clean for your family images.
Cake Smash Session
After baby’s individual portion of milestone images, we then focus on the cake smash aspect of your session. I provide timeless and vintage inspired props for this session, but also ensure baby is the focus of our time together, too. I do not like distracting aspects in the images so props are kept to a minimum so baby will be the shining star. Examples of props I may bring as things like an antique high chair, quilt and crate.
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.
