There is no better way to celebrate your baby’s birthday than with a smash cake session! We do cake smash sessions in our private studio or on location.

We love new themes and ideas but mostly we want to focus on your baby so we keep the props to a minimum. However, feel free to be creative- it’s your baby and her/his 1st Bday. You can customize the background set by yourself. We will provide the backdrop and colored balloons. Please let us know if you’d like to omit the balloons. I personally love the simplicity of the baby and the cake only (without balloons).

The Cake
Please let us know in advance what color(s) you will order for your cake so that we can make sure that the cake will have the colors we discussed and will match with the background, theme or balloons. We prefer white cake on the inside, regular frosting (no fondant). The size of the cake 6″ and 8″, cupcake style and regular round. It’s really just your personal preference.

Smashing of the cake
Cake smash sessions generally only past one of two ways; The baby loves it and makes a huge funny mess. Or The baby wants nothing to do with the cake. Now that they are on the move they usually just crawl or walk away. Just in case this happens, wear comfortable pants so you can chase your baby down.

These sessions can get very messy so make sure that you bring a spare set of clothes for you and your birthday baby. We have lots of fun during these sessions, a few images of your little one will be taken before the cake comes out so they are familiar with the camera and me. Then the cake comes in and we begin smashing!

Ellyn’s Cake Smash

A few months ago, I didn’t exactly have any ideas for my daughter Ellyn’s Cake Smash photo shoot to celebrate her 1st birthday. Our little angel Ellyn is a beautiful mixed baby girl. Part American, part Slovakian.
I wanted to do two photo shoots. One shoot to represent both of her cultures: USA + Slovakia. We had already planned a visit to my home country during the month of July- which was perfect because Ellyn would actually become 1 while would be in Slovakia visiting my family!

From the moment I arrived to the U.S., San Antonio to be exact, I’ve fallen in love with Texas culture. Everything I’ve been exposed to gives me the change stop push the limits of fantasy to the next level. It was very important for me to “be original.” And trust me it´s not that easy.
Thankfully, I found the perfect place with vintage furniture and props. I decided to forget about buying an outfit from a store. Instead, I made a vintage style skirt and headband for Ellyn. I couldn’t seem to find a cake that matched my vision- maybe because I’m too picky about details so I decided to make a cake that matched my idea. Scrutinizing every detail to make the shoot as unique as possible is what I love to do for my clients. Original look, original idea.
Bringing these ideas together can be pricey but it’s absolutely worth it considering the fact that our baby girl will only have one 1st birthday. Her 1st birthday. SHEESH! Where does the time go!???

These pictures will stay with us for the rest of our lives. When I finished the video of Ellyn’s Cake Smash I was laughing because I was imagining the day will show this video to her on her wedding day one day. Such amazing moments. Such amazing memories. It’s a precious priceless gift what you can give yourself and your child.
