Newington, CT’s Signature Cake Smash Photoshoot

Our cake smash sessions are designed to be a fun and immersive experience for both you and your child. A typical cake smash photoshoot follows this three-part outline:


Birthday Portrait – We kick off the session with a series of portraits to capture your child’s adorable expressions and personality. This warm-up period allows your little one to feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera.


That official first birthday portrait that you’ll cherish forever.


The Cake Smash – The moment you’ve been waiting for! We introduce the birthday cake and encourage your child to explore, play, and, of course, smash the cake to their heart’s content. It’s a messy, delightful experience that makes for priceless photos and memories.


Trying out her cake!




Baby Tub Bath – We wrap up the session with a refreshing and fun tub bath to clean off the cake and capture a few more adorable moments. Our goal is to ensure that your child leaves feeling happy, clean, and content after their cake smash adventure.


Time to get clean!
