Cake Smash Photographer | 1st Birthday Photography | Allie’s Happy Camper Sneak Peek
As soon as I heard about this fun cake smash theme that mom shared with me… I jumped with excitement. I couldn’t wait.
The teepee in this session was the same teepee we used for her lifestyle newborn session a year ago!
Logistically, this cake smash was a little harder to figure out. I was very concerned that the cake could ruin the teepee and I surely didn’t want that to happen. It is a big prop to be used in the cake smash session, again, something I was a little worried about. But I never had any doubt that it would be able to be done and done well.
I think that mommy did a great job making this light pink cake. Mom was confident that she was going to be able to make the cake and get it here to the studio. Luckily, they live in Holly Springs and there was not a long transport of the cake. With that pink cake, I knew we needed to have some pink flowers. I spent a great deal of time looking for flowers that would match her floral headband. After 2 hours of searching, I picked these up at Micheals. In my search, I found this beautiful garland that you can see at the very top of the opening of the teepee.
Each and ever cake smash and first birthday session is different. I try and get a clear understanding of moms (or in rare cases dads) vision to help come up with something unique. A different twist, whether its with different flowers, cakes or combinations, every experience is different.
If you have a little one getting ready to celebrate a first birthday, make sure you consider a 1st birthday cake smash session session for them. You won’t regret it… but you will probably regret not doing it.
