When it comes to capturing your baby’s first birthday, there’s no better way than a cake smash photo shoot. And the best way to make it happen is by having a cake smash baby photo shoot. A cake smash photo shoot is an ideal way to capture all the beautiful moments from your baby’s first birthday. It will give the parents and the grandparents a chance to relive the happy moments of your baby’s first birthday party. But with such a huge milestone, you might have overlooked some details as well. That’s why planning a cake smash baby photo shoot is an excellent way to capture every memory. While planning a cake smash photo shoot, you will need to follow a few simple steps.
Decide on the theme of your cake smash baby photo shoot
Cake smash photo shoots are all about capturing the moment when your baby has their first cake. So, before you go ahead and plan your cake smash baby photo shoot, you need to decide on the theme of the shoot. There are different themes that can be used for cake smash photo shoots. I offer many preselected themes in case you are not sure or don’t have anything specific in mind. Also, I can create something unique and special if you have something in your mind already. The important thing is to pick the theme that matches your taste and preference.
Decide on the time of day for your baby’s cake smash photo shoot
The time of day is a very important factor to keep in mind. We are dealing with babies and nap time is a HUGE factor in the photo session success. We always book the cake smash photo session right after nap time.
Prepare props for your cake smash baby photo shoot
Preparing props for your cake smash baby photo shoot is essential. Whether you want to go with a pre-selected theme or not, I’ll pick the right props that go well with the theme. You would also need to think about additional props — something that you have and really want to be used in the pictures—or something that will be included in the scene of your photo shoot.
Get ready for the mess
The first step would involve getting ready for the mess. One thing parents don’t realize at first is that their little one will get messy, and he/she will for sure run for their arms sometime during the session. An extra pair of clothing is great to have. A key thing to note is that it’s best if the cake has a few flavours so that the baby can enjoy eating it too. Place the cake in front of the baby and let them eat as much as they want to. You should also make sure that you wear old clothes because this will be messy and you don’t want your clothes stained with food colours.
A well-deserved bath
When it comes to capturing the cake smash photo shoot, the last and one of the funniest moments for the babies is the bathtub. It’s a great way to wash the baby while they keep having fun. It’s also a great moment when I take candid photos. The cake smash baby photo shoot is a great way to get your baby’s first birthday captured in an elegant way. It’s a tangible reminder of how much your baby has grown and will help your family remember these happy times forever!
