Her little safari outfit, the modern balloon garland cake smash setup, and this amazing cake = TOTAL CUTENESS OVERLOAD!
As a photographer, my passion for freezing moments in time has led me down many delightful paths, but there's something uniquely special about cake smash photoshoots. These sessions, designed to celebrate a child's first birthday, provide a fascinating and rewarding canvas for my skills and creativity.
Each cake smash session begins with careful preparation, and it's an art in itself. My clients and I work together to select a theme, color palette, and design that resonates with the family's personality. The choice of cake is pivotal, as it should not only look appealing but also taste delicious and luckily I have found the most amazing baker in Airdrie named Ruffles and Lace Artisan Cakes.
On the day of the cake smash photoshoot, my heart swells with excitement. Watching the birthday girl's face light up as the cake is unveiled is a moment to cherish. The uninhibited joy and curiosity as they dig their little hands into the cake, spreading frosting all over their adorable outfits, often leaves me in awe. The unpredictability of these sessions keeps me on my toes, ready to catch the unexpected, whether it's a cheeky grin, a moment of hesitation, or a full-on cake dive.
One of my key roles as a cake smash photographer is to create a comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere. It's essential that the child feels at ease and has the freedom to explore the cake without pressure. This involves striking a balance between gently guiding the session and stepping back to capture authentic moments.
Incorporating the family into the session is also a part of the charm. Siblings, parents, and even grandparents often join in, adding to the warmth and chaos of the experience. The collaborative effort often results in beautiful family moments, which I'm privileged to capture.
A couple of days after your adorable cake smash session, you will come back to my studio to see all of your adorable photos. This is where you will purchase the Digital Images you absolutely love and any print products that may catch your eye. The most popular products I sell for Cake Smashes are my albums. They are great to display on your coffee table or even give as gifts to your child's grandparents.
I have two spots left for 2023 and I am already booking for April 2024 and later so if you want to book a cake smash for your child, it is never too early to contact me. Please contact me at this link and we will get you a spot on my calendar: www.meaganpaige.com/contact
