To everyone who is unfamiliar with the concept of a cake smash photography, it may seem weird. Many of you think, why would you order a beautiful cake and dress up a 12-month old to take hundreds photos of the child destroying the sweet dissert and getting all messy? However, cake smashes are getting insanely popular, bringing families together in a unique, fun and creative way. First birthdays are as much a celebration for the parents as the baby. One year of sleepless nights and dirty diapers survived. Oftentimes, it feels as though the year will never end… and next day as though the year is passing all too quickly. Pretty soon, this same small baby will be all grown up, preparing for life as an adult. A cake smash is the perfect finalization of all that has happened during the first year. Many people will have their photoshoot in the weeks before the birthday party, using the images for an invitation to an actual birthday party. Cake smash photoshoots can be as simple or as complicated as you would like.
