Sibling Cake Smash – 1st Birthday Photographers

August 8, 2020

Your kiddo’s first birthday will only happen once, so why not celebrate it with a smash? Cake smash sessions are a fun way to capture this beautiful moment and your baby’s budding personality. We are sure to capture your wee one having fun as they explore a cake made just for them! 


This session in our natural light studio space located in The Junction was to celebrate this little dolls first birthday and as you can see the photos we capture at Anchor Studio are ones this family will cherish for a lifetime.

The word studio can create a vision in the mind of a very serious place where everyone must be careful and there is expensive equipment everywhere but that is NOT how my studio is! This studio space is designed for kids to play and snuggle, even run! Most kids are not willing to sit for long periods of time and I know that feeling.

There is always good light in the studio which is one of my favourite things about it. If you have a little one it may be tricky to schedule a session outdoors during the summer months due to naps and bedtimes. Choosing a studio session gives parents more flexibility to choose a time that works best for their child all year round.

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.

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.
