Cake Smash Photography in Tacoma, WA

What is cuter than a little one year old tasting birthday cake for the first time?! I’m a mom of a toddler myself and I remember how adorable and hilarious it was when we brought out the birthday cake for her to smash into. She’s probably thinking, “What is happening? I’m allowed to make a mess?! Something is wrong here!”. Cake smash photography is one of my favorite types of photography to shoot and these sessions are just pure entertainment for not only me, but parents and siblings as well. I want to share some of my favorite cake smash images with you guys and explain some of my process below!

The Process

My cake smash sessions include 3 setups: one “clean” setup, where we take photos before we introduce anything messy or wet such as the cake and bath. After we take the formal portraits, we move baby to the cake smash setup where we introduce the cake and have lots of fun playing songs, making funny noises, and making silly faces to get your baby to laugh and have a blast. The last setup is the bath setup which is ALWAYS the most fun. Three setups gives us a ton of variety and lots of adorable photos in the end!

Cake smash sessions include all decor and outfits, as well as the custom delicious cake. When booking with me, everything can be customized exactly to your liking. From the backdrop choices to the colors of the outfits and the icing on the cake, I strive to make everything perfect for you. Ready to book your custom experience?
