We at Precious Encounters Photography plan custom cake smash sessions for each of our clients. When clients book their cake smash, a little questionnaire is sent out to get some ideas about what the parents may or may not like. We then begin our creative planning. This set was created around the little romper she is wearing. It inspired the theme, colors and setting for her custom cake smash. We also work very closely with a local baker in town to create custom cakes to match the theme. These moments are fun to watch and capture as each child reacts differently to cake. Some love it so much that we have to remind them to come up for air and then some are not quite sure what to do with it, and then there are some who flat out want nothing to do with it!
We also do their first year portraits at the beginning of the session. This way if the cake is a no go, we still have some beautiful images to complete their gallery. As we can see below, Miss Mila LOVED her cake smash and her first year portraits!
