cake smash photography

Before becoming a mother, I don’t think that I knew what cake smashes were. Sure, I had seen babies dive into cakes and cupcakes on their first birthdays. They would get super messy, and everyone would take photos and coo over how cute they looked. I didn’t know that it was an actual thing to have a photography session that solely involved smashing a cake to bits. Now I do, and I find that they are so popular!

There are so many elements involved in a cake smash session.

Over the last month or so, I’ve photographed two very different cake smashes. The first one was actually a donut smash. It was a 30-minute session that included family photos before the smash, and then the smash itself. The second session was quite a contrast. It was an hour long, there was two outfit changes, and the family photos occurred after the cake smash.

Both were quite fun, and again, both babies reacted quite differently to the sweet treats in front of them. I love not knowing how much they will actually smash, and how they will feel about the cake. It’s always so cute to see!

These are just a few of those photographs. To see more, or to book your own session, visit Prudence + Me Photography.
