Cake Smash Session

Cake Smash Session by Veronika Gant Photography creates a first birthday session like no other! With a penchant for partying and hands ready to dive into that birthday cake, the first birthday is a greatly anticipated milestone in every family. At this age, your toddler will be interacting in lots of fun ways which sometimes leave even parents in need of a nap. Standing, walking, and ready to take on the world, we document that infectious energy and charisma that brings so much light (and sometimes surprise) into your life. Click the video to see how we can create unique 1st Birthday Cake Smash photos of your baby.

Customizing the photography scenes

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 in any color you request. If you feel you can’t do it for any reason Veronika will personally help you to create the scene you will love! She will communicate with you about every detail for the photo set. To customize the photography set is for an additional cost.

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.

The 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!

Milestone Session

Milestone Session at 3-9 months when the baby is ready for sitting but not yet on the go, I will capture him/her at the roly-poly happy phase, when those big grins and belly laughs are lighting up your life. Sitting babies make the absolute best models since they cannot crawl away and are easily amused with peek-a-boo and squeaky toys. Portraits at this stage capture the beginnings of those dynamic personalities that will be with you forever and give a glimpse into a small person interacting with their environment as only those small bundles of delight can. Scroll down to see prices and packages for Milestone Session.

Seasonal Mini Sessions

Mini Sessions have recently become so popular, not only because they are fashionable and trendy, but also because they can be specifically designed for every unique occasion or holiday season, whether it is Valentine’s Day, Easter, or Christmas.  If you would like something a bit different from the conventional Santa’s pictures next Christmas, you are on the right website. Each photo is taken with a unique perspective and attention to detail to capture the beauty of the moment.

These mini sessions are only 30 minutes long, but they create everlasting memories of your beloved little ones during such special occasions. Capture those moments with our lenses!
