Just Smashing! Cake Smash Ideas for Your Child’s First Birthday!
Is your child’s very first birthday approaching? While your baby doesn’t know much about birthdays just yet, you are no doubt excited and ready to go all out for the occasion!
One way parents love to commemorate special moments in their children’s life? Pictures—lots of them. So why not combine the essence of a birthday party, which is basically just cake, and the marvelous creation we call a camera!
Cake smash photography is trendier than ever, and with the kind of hilarious and adorable photos you get out of it, who’s complaining?
Keep It Minimalistic
One simple idea for your baby’s cake smash photo shoot is to go minimalistic and have a plain backdrop, with all the focus on your little one and the cake. It’s a fairly straightforward idea, and you can even take the simplicity up a notch by going for only a basic diaper as your baby’s wardrobe.
It’s a birthday, and it’s a cake smash, and that calls for balloons. Go crazy with the balloons—you can opt for a color theme or you can go the rainbow route and just surround your baby with a burst of color! Be careful about potential balloon bursting scaring your child, of course!
With backdrops and props at your disposal, you can take your pick of which theme you want the cake smash to follow. You can set up a backdrop of a particular cartoon, superhero, or Disney movie, or you could do something seasonal as well! The possibilities are endless, and both parent and photographer can work together to create just the right setup for the little one’s very first cake smash birthday!
Cake smash photography can be oodles of fun, for both the baby and the parents! The best part is, you get to take away some beautiful snapshots of unadulterated joy—an exciting addition to the photo album or the wall photo spread at home.
