Bump to Baby: 1 Year Cake Smash

There might not be a milestone session I love more than the 1-year cake smash. 


Babies at this stage have such awesome personalities. Throw some sugary confections in the mix and they REALLY have fun.

Cake Smash sessions with Tiffany Photography always take place in the studio. As the parent, you get to pick the theme and the outfit, and I place the order for the cake, create the props, and bring it all together the day of the session. As such, cake smash sessions should be booked about two weeks in advance of when you'd like the session to take place. I like to have the photos to you within a week or two of your little one’s birthday. So if you're little one's birthday is April 4, let's start planning the cake smash session a month in advance.


Some things to know:

You’ll get two outfit changes. The first is something cute that you want to remember your little one wearing that won’t get messy. We’ll do a few photos in that outfit, and then you’ll change your baby into the cake smash outfit. While you’re doing that, I will set up the cake and change out props.

Sometimes babies don’t dive into cake the first time they see it. You might want to practice with them at home a few times first.

Each cake smash session usually lasts 35-45 minutes. This tends to yield about 15 photos. I include the high resolution digitals in an online gallery for download within a week of the session.

You should bring both of your cake smash session outfits, plus an extra change of clothes to go home in. Any additional props you want to work into the photo session, as long as you’ve cleared it with me first.

I’ll provide the cake, props, accessories (like hats or headbands), towels, plastic bags for clean up.
