Capturing Sweet Memories: Cake Smash Photography in Connecticut

The Joy of First Birthdays – Cake Smash Photoshoot

Without a doubt, cake smash photography has become a beloved tradition for celebrating a child’s first birthday! Hence, what better way to celebrate this milestone than with a fun and messy photoshoot? Join me as we explore the magical world of cake smash photography in Connecticut. A child’s first birthday is a momentous occasion, not just for the little one but for your entire family. It marks a year of growth, milestones, endless love, and maybe some gray hairs. ;0  It’s a chance for parents to freeze time, to capture the innocence and wonder of their child’s earliest years in a series of (hopefully) delightful photographs.

Setting the Scene

We like to do our cake smashes when the little ones are between 10 and 11 months old.  Yes, we do those ways earlier than you would think, for various reasons. First – at 10/11 months they are happier than 12 months old. Yes, it is just a fact. 🙂 Second, most kids do not walk at that time, so it will be easier to keep them in the setup. Third, the great part about this? You will have your images back before their big birthday smash!

We do not offer sibling and/or family images before, during, or after our cake smash sessions. Why? Because little ones have a 20-minute attention span. Therefore, we want to make sure those little ones are the happiest during their cake smash. Hence, after putting so much work into planning we highly recommend that the cake smash is the only thing you focus on that day.

The Sweetest Cake Smash Moments

As a cake smash photographer, I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing the pure joy and excitement on a child’s face as they enjoyed their first birthday cake. However, I have also seen plenty of tears! Who knew cake smashing could be so upsetting? 🙂 Despite that, we always end up capturing some magic! In fact, when it comes to cake smashing you have to be ready for anything! Some kids won’t touch the cake, some won’t let go of the cake, some eat it all and some just nibble. So if you are lucky, you will be going home with half the cake!

Capturing Personality and Expression

Naturally, one of the joys of cake smash photography is capturing the unique personality and expressions of your child.  Some giggle uncontrollably, while others wear a look of intense concentration as they explore their cake. Meanwhile, others just break out in tears. As mentioned before, you have to be prepared for everything when booking a cake smash. It is an adventure that makes for great memories!

Creating Lasting Memories

Next, you might have heard about my celebrity cake smashes? Despite not being a bragger, a few of them even went viral! Aren’t they so fun? Creating unique cake smash setups is my specialty. Without a doubt, the biggest challenge – makes me the happiest! So bring it on! 

We also have a section on the blog dedicated to our regular cake smashes. You can check out past Cake Smash Photography sessions right on our blog. My goal is to make this a fantastic experience for you and your child. Furthermore, check out this fun video for a fun overview of some of our most popular cake smashes:

As noted before, cake smash photography creates lasting memories for families to cherish for years to come. These photographs are more than just images; they are a timeless memory of your child’s first birthday. In fact, they are a reminder of the fleeting nature of childhood and the importance of preserving every precious moment.

Once you book your session we’ll collaborate about what clothes will work best for this fun shoot. Then we will chat about what you’re envisioning for your session, and how soon we can make this happen. Lastly, keep in mind that we need a minimum of SIX weeks to plan out a premium cake smash if you want customized items. Of course, we also have a list of deluxe cake smash themes that you can choose from that we can turn around in a nick of time.

Preserving the Magic with the Best Cake Smash Photographers in Our Milford Photo Studio

To conclude, as a cake smash photographer in Connecticut, my goal is to capture the magic of this special milestone with your vision in mind! Get ready for messy faces, silly expressions, emotions, and laughter. Because long after the cake has been eaten and the decorations put away, without a doubt, these photographs will remain the most cherished reminder of this special day.

Our Ready-to-Go Deluxe Cake Smash Themes

As mentioned before, sometimes time is of the essence and you might want to schedule your cake smash sooner rather than later! Therefore, we have “ready-to-go” themes that you can pick from. We can turn these around in a nick of time and get that special cake smash celebration started. We will always recreate the themes exactly as shown below maybe with slight changes if needed.

Most are printed backdrops that cannot be changed as they are printed as shown. Hence, if you see a balloon garland in the background the colors cannot be changed. If you have something in mind that you do not see here, no worries – we can make it happen it just will take some time for planning and ordering!

In conclusion, photographing children is what got me started with photography! When I came to the US as an Aupair working with so many different children sparked my interest in photography. Not surprisingly there is always something to be captured.  In other words, child photography is not always easy, but that makes it fun, right Connecticut? As I have said before, you never know what to expect, and that keeps it interesting. After all, all kids are unpredictable. 🙂

Cake smashes will take place in my Milford photography studio.
