As a Richmond child photographer, I have noticed the recent popularity of cake smash sessions. I truly wish that this was a thing when my kids were little! There is nothing cuter that a one year old showing their excitement, or in some cases distain for their smash cake…lol!
I combine a child’s one year session with the cake smash, adding an additional outfit, as well as an opportunity for the client to have a family portrait taken. Most of my cake smash clients love this aspect of the session, as many people don’t take the time to get a family photo done enough these days.
Every cake smash session includes the cake as well as the set up. I have a local baker who I love to collaborate with for the cakes. My clients usually send me what outfit they have chosen for their child and then we have fun designing from there. I tend to try and stay simple with these set ups, so that the focus is on the child and the cake.
This wonderful family is from Richmond, and they have been so supportive of Denise Feagans Photography. For that I am super grateful! I have photographed big sister’s newborn session, as well as J’s baby session one year ago. I also have captured a few cute mini sessions in between.
The entire family came by for J’s one year cake smash, and as you can see, a fun time was had by all. Look at his happiness…that is what it is all about!
Happy Birthday J! What a joy to watch you grow:)
