Colorful Carnival Cake Smash | Newington, CT

Summer cake smashes are always one of the most popular photoshoots that I do, and each one is carefully planned with each family. Mom has been so excited to plan this ever since they were in my studio for his newborn photoshoot, so we knew this had to be special! She easily chose our colorful carnival cake smash theme, and it’s definitely one of my favorites! I just love how bright and bold it is and every background shot is just beautiful! We started out the session as we always do with some pre-cake portraits just to warm up and get the child used to our studio. After some balloon play and photo fun, we moved over to the set to play with props and tractors. He really was on the move and gave us so many adorable smiles! Cake time was definitely NOT an issue – he really couldn’t wait to dive right in! And with a delicious cake by Sweets by Jenna, how can you blame him!? He happily smashed right into that adorable cake with both fists, even his foot! Spoon play was fun and we even figured out how to eat from it by ourselves! But that sometimes got in the way of eating it with our hands so there was a lot of switching back and forth. After plenty of cake, it was time for bath time! This is a great way to extend client galleries as well as help if the child isn’t as much into the cake as others are. Some bubbles and rubber duckies and most babies are having a blast! He just kept giving us those great smiles and it was tough to choose between so many of his adorable photos. Enjoy some of their many favorites below, and don’t forget to make sure to contact us at least a few weeks in advance to plan for your custom cake smash. We can’t wait to work with you!
