Cake smash sessions are so much fun. Here is a recent outdoor cake smash I captured in Rocklin ca.
I love giving babies their first taste of birthday cake and watching them react to the sweetness they haven’t tasted before. I start first birthday portrait sessions off in the babies first outfit and then after a quick outfit change I will end the session by giving the baby an entire birthday cake and letting them eat it all by themselves. We call this a cake smash session because the baby ends up making a big mess out of their birthday cake, I snap a bunch of adorable candid photos, and it makes for an amazing portrait and first birthday keepsake. I love to capture the excitement and celebration of this huge milestone into a picture that I hope will be forever treasured by parents and babies alike.
I love working as a Sacramento area baby photographer! I love working with children and babies and I photograph them at all sorts of locations around town, both indoor and outdoor. Sometimes I will photograph babies with birthday cake at my studio located in Citrus Heights, CA, but I also set up cake smash sessions at outdoor locations around the Sacramento Area. For this particular session, we met at beautiful Quarry Park in Rocklin. My client was very interested in having an outdoor session, because she saw an adorable cake smash session with a teepee that I captured last fall.
She asked me to create something similar for her baby girl using natural light and beautiful scenery.
This adorable baby girl named Everly, has the most amazing curls and was a great model. surprisingly, she wasn’t the biggest fan of the cake. She had more fun playing with the frosting and squishing the cake between her fingers than she did actually eating it. I kept telling her mom that some kids just don’t like cake, because they can’t handle the sweetness. Imagine that! However, I’m very patient and have no problem acting a fool to get a smile out of my babies, and that’s exactly what I did here. Many earsplitting renditions of Daniel Tiger’s theme song were sung by me in order to capture those darling smiles. My favorite shots are where Everyly is coated in Frosting and looking adorable at her teddy bear tea party.
Happy Birthday Everly!
