If you’re in the mood for a colorful and culturally-rich celebration, you’re in for a treat! A cake smash session, one of the most delightful ways to commemorate a baby’s first year, was recently held at our studio, graced by the beautiful baby girl Anna. The celebration, photographed by the extraordinarily talented Veronika Gant, was a heartwarming testament to the vibrant culture and colors of Mexico, as an homage to Anna’s family roots.
Immersing her creativity and cultural sensitivity into this photoshoot, Veronika designed a spectacular “Viva La Mexico” themed backdrop. This stunning arrangement was rich in Mexican symbols, integrating elements of Anna’s family heritage into every scene.
The backdrop that served as the canvas for the session was a seamless hot pink wall. This electrifying color created a lively atmosphere that brilliantly portrayed the spirited essence of Mexico. In the future, clients have the option to customize this color from a palette of options available in our studio. We aim to create a bespoke experience that fully represents your vision and taste.
Veronika’s eye for detail and commitment to authenticity was evident in the hand-made cactuses and stone vases and pots that adorned the scene. They added an earthy, rustic touch to the vibrant setting, a wonderful representation of Mexico’s diverse landscape.
To complete the scene, Veronika added a unique element in the form of papel picado – a traditional Mexican folk art that involves intricate paper cutting. These were paired with twinkling lights at the back of the backdrop, adding a magical glow to the atmosphere. This festive decoration is often associated with Mexican celebrations and their inclusion added to the authenticity of the theme.
The star of the session, baby Anna, looked absolutely adorable in an outfit sourced from LunamayaboutiqueUS. This ensemble was carefully selected to match the theme, and it complemented the decor perfectly. For those interested in checking out more of their creations, a link to the shop can be found here.

Cake smash sessions have evolved from a whimsical trend to an almost essential rite of passage, marking a child’s first year in this world. Laden with laughter, innocence, and a healthy dose of cake, these sessions are nothing short of magical. The tale I share with you today is that of a delightful baby girl named Adelyn, who had her cake smash in a picturesque “Ready To Go” Chabi Chic photography setup.
The Chabi Chic setup presents a feast for the eyes, an artful assembly of decorations. A profusion of flowers of varying hues creates a kaleidoscope of colors, setting a vibrant and joyful tone. The scene features a quaint white teepee, vintage birdcages, and white wooden boxes that add layers of depth and intrigue to the setup, all coming together to form a charming, timeless tableau.
The backdrop is a work of art in itself. The upper portion showcases a Pink Watercolor design, lovingly adorned with blossoms handcrafted by the talented Veronika. The bottom seamlessly blends into the rest of the scene with a complementary vinyl pink texture, creating a cohesive aesthetic that perfectly frames the whole setting.
The star of this idyllic setup was the lovely Adelyn. Her first ensemble was a delicate pink dress that captured her sweet innocence, perfectly accentuating her bright eyes and endearing smile. As the session progressed, Adelyn donned a second outfit – a beautiful romper decorated with intricate lace and matching pink flowers. It was a tender nod to vintage chic, fitting seamlessly into the overall aesthetic of the setup.
The pièce de résistance was a minimalist, white naked cake, brought in by Adelyn’s parents. Placed regally on a white cake stand, it had a golden cake topper that added an element of sparkle to its elegant simplicity. The cake itself was so harmonious with the setting that it felt like the final piece of a meticulously designed puzzle.
Veronika, wielding her camera like a wand, caught every moment of Adelyn’s exploration and wonder. The little girl, bathed in the soft light of the session, reached out to the nearby flowers, giggled with pure joy, and finally embarked on the much-awaited cake smash.
The cake smash is, in many ways, the climax of any first birthday photoshoot. Adelyn’s eyes twinkled with anticipation as she made the first tentative touch, followed by a gleeful realization that she could, indeed, dive right into it! The resulting series of photos captured a delightfully messy, cake-smeared baby girl, and the echoes of laughter that surely filled the room.
These cake smash sessions capture the essence of a child’s first year of life – filled with exploration, joy, mess, and endless charm. For Adelyn and her family, this enchanting Chabi Chic cake smash session will forever be a sweet memory to revisit. And for us, it’s another beautiful story of childhood joy, masterfully framed by Veronika’s artistic vision.
