This was such a fun setup to create. When I work on these extensive setups a lot of time and planning goes into them. I want them of course to look as close to the actual setup as possible. This time for the backdrop I bought an image from a NYC skyline and then added the arches to it afterwards to copy the look of the backdrop they use on the show. I had it custom-printed by R2 Backdrops – I love using them for my custom printing needs. I then reupholstered one of my little couches with a fabric I bought at Michaels to get the color closer to the chair/couch color they use on the show. Then I needed a gold oval side table but it was super hard to find, so I spray painted a metal bin I found at Hobby Lobby. I ordered the Drew coffee cup off their website to make this even more authentic. They were sold out of the white one so I settled for the yellow. 🙂 I ordered the rug on Wayfair and it took a while to find one that was somewhat close in color and texture to the one they actually use on the show. My dear friend Jade created the cake and the sign, can’t be a cakesmash without her skills!
Here is an image from the show (image copyrighted by The Drew Barrymore Show)
That is what I used as inspiration. Then of course we had the cutest Drew fan the theme was created for. Sweet little Savannah who recently turned one! I know Drew loves to wear suits when hosting her talk show so this cute outfit would be right up her alley, don’t you think? Also threw in a fun romper for some before the smash shoot as in my mind I could picture her wearing it. 🙂 She rocked both outfits and looked mighty cute.
Let’s see some of her cakesmash images!
We were so excited when people at the show saw our smash and responded with this:
We hope Drew did too and it made her day. We love her dearly around here. Here is to another fun season of The Drew Barrymore Show – keep on spreading the joy, Drew!

Cakesmash Photography Connecticut
Thank you for reading on! I hope you enjoyed viewing this cakesmash photography session on the blog post as much as I enjoyed capturing it. A little bit more about me, I am an on-location, natural light, lifestyle and portrait Photographer, focusing on Maternity, Newborn, Baby, Families and Children of all ages in Connecticut. In addition, I have a beautiful photography studio located in Milford, Connecticut, which is best suited for Newborn, Maternity and Milestone Photography Sessions for children three to twelve months. Curious where you will be going for your cakesmash? Take a peek at my cozy state of the art studio located right off Exit 35|I95.
Cakesmash photography sessions are such a fun way to capture your little one turning one! They take a lot of planning, so ideally we would like about 6 weeks notice to set them up. If you already have a theme in mind, even better, I will work with you to have your vision come alive. I have tons of different backdrops that you can choose from to customize your session. We will talk about colors, themes, and most importantly cake! This will be a fun shoot to capture the personality of your little one at this special age, they only turn 1 once, right?
To get excited and start getting some ideas, feel free to browse some older cakesmash session on the blog. This way you can get an idea of what to expect before booking your very own cakesmash photography session.
