Spring cake smash session at Mint Room Studios – Anchor Studio

March 18, 2021

Cake Smash Session are a wonderful way to mark your child’s first birthday milestone. For those who are unfamiliar with the term ‘cake smash’, it is literally a session involving a cake… that gets smashed! Sessions can take place between 11-12 months of age or two weeks before the party if you want images back in time for then. Anchor Studio specializes in capturing the sweetest photos of you and your child digging into their buttercream cake made just for them.

If your little one is turning one soon, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me! First birthday sessions are a wonderful way to celebrate this busy year that you and your baby have had. I’ll do all the work and you just have to show up excited! My package includes access to my client closet for you and your baby as well as the cake and decor so you have less to think about and get to enjoy the session.


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 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.

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.
