An Atlanta cake smash photo session is a fun experience for the whole family. It’s your baby’s very first birthday, and that is a huge reason to celebrate! Before the cake makes its debut, this specialty milestone session begins with traditional portraits of your child. The first birthday is a big milestone, and deserves to be documented properly. We begin with portraits of your little one alone, and also get shots with you! If your baby has older siblings, I recommend including them too.
After we finish this portion of the session, I will have you change your baby into their cake smash outfit. We will place him or her in my studio high chair and get a few shots of this new outfit before we present the cake. Then we introduce the cake and I’ll capture your baby’s reaction to the whole experience! We will wrap up by getting a few final shots of you with your baby while they enjoy digging into the cake.

I don’t provide the cake for these Atlanta cake smash photos. I recommend grabbing a cake from publix or I’m happy to recommend some local bakeries. Select a small cake or large cupcake, approximately 4-6 inches around. Whether you are making the cake, or having it made, please consider the following items:
One of the biggest perks of booking a session with me is that I have options for wardrobe for the family! You may also want to include a special birthday outfit such as a party hat or personalized outfit for your little one. Etsy and amazon are great sources for items like this! I advise to sticking with minimal designs that will be classy compliments and not overpowering in color or design. Soft blue or pink hues with white are the best option.
We can begin with a more traditional outfit and then change into the special birthday attire for the cake smash portion of the session. Keep in mind the whatever outfit is chosen for the birthday cake smash portion will most likely get dirty!
While my studio is well equipped with most items you will need, there are a few extras you may want to bring along due to the messy nature of a cake smash session! Use this as a check list for what to bring along.
