Cake Smash Photos

What a crazy idea to take a perfectly beautiful cake and take photos of your child making a big mess — but the adorable and memorable results speak for themselves with my cake smash photos! The cake smash photoshoot trend is sweeping Nassau County and Suffolk County, and is so much fun for everyone involved. While first birthday cake smash photography is the most popular birthday to commemorate with this adorable tradition, I happily work with children of all ages to celebrate their birthday milestones with cake smash photos.

This fun filled session includes formal portraits done first. Before your baby gets messy with cake and icing, lets get some cute shots using some of my adorable props. After formal portraits are done, its time to get changed into their cake smash outfit! I supply the balloons and adorable atmosphere and you supply the cake. Lets get messy! Two to three weeks after your shoot,  a link to your online gallery will let you access, view and download all your images. A non refundable deposit of $50 is required to hold a slot for your session upon booking.

What you Get

Cake smash photos are perfect not only as milestone photographs to add to your collection of baby’s heirlooms, they are wonderful for birthday party invitations and birthday thank-you cards too. A cake smash photoshoot may very well be the first time your child enjoys such a large quantity of sweets, and is allowed to do as he or she pleases. The photographs I take celebrate these momentous moments of discovery and joy as baby licks his or her fingers, spreads icing on the floor or through the hair, and even crawls through the cake!

When it comes to cake smash photos Long Island families may prefer to have the cake smash photoshoot at home, or might prefer to come to my Nassau County studio where cleanup duty is taken care of—I understand! I have a comfortable and welcoming studio where you have a cozy space to clean baby up after the fact—please be sure to bring a change of clean clothes. We will need to discuss details like the cake to be used and backdrop beforehand, so simply give me a call—I am also available to travel throughout Long Island.

First birthday cake smash photography works best when your child has a prop or two in addition to the cake. Some of my favorite ideas include costumes, baking accessories like spoons, birthday hats, or even baby-safe balloons for the background. Many of my clients like to add streamers, tutus, hats, and other fun accessories to add whimsy to their cake smash photos in Seaford, Bellmore, Roslyn, and New Hyde Park—simply add you and your child’s personality to the mix!
