A Strawberry-Themed Cake Smash with Beautiful Baby Cheyenne at Veronika Gant Photography

There are few joys in life that rival the pure, unbridled excitement of a child celebrating their first year. A cake smash session serves as the perfect culmination of twelve months of growth, joy, and new experiences. And when the star of the show is as radiant as Baby Cheyenne, the celebration becomes all the more memorable.

The theme of the cake smash was strawberries – a delightful choice symbolizing sweetness and love. These bright red berries, besides being delicious, offer a fantastic burst of color that instantly captures the eye.

We adorned the photography space with plush greenery, delicate small lights, and dainty white boxes. The props provided by the parents, especially the fresh strawberries, the wooden sign, the heart sign, and the banner, added depth and a personalized touch to the setting.

Our Egg Nog seamless backdrop was the backdrop of choice. Its popularity in cake smash sessions and individual portraits comes from its beautifully natural tone. Coupled with the white wooden flooring, the setting was dreamlike, ready to capture Cheyenne’s most candid moments.

For the initial shots, Cheyenne was dressed in adorable jeans and a pristine white dress. The contrast of her outfit against the neutral backdrop made her the undeniable center of attention.

As we moved to the more fun part – the cake smashing – Cheyenne was dressed in a cute white lace onesie. This outfit not only allowed for flexibility and movement but also looked stunning on camera.

 

 

The cake was presented on a graceful white stand. Its light pink frosting was an ode to the strawberry theme. Decorated with real strawberries and crowned with a glistening gold topper, it was a feast for the eyes even before it met its deliciously messy fate!
