Cake smash photography is fun! But it can be hard work, especially when you challenge yourself to take pictures of your own child.
Normally, when I have a cake smash session, or any children photography session for that matter, I always have help from the parents.
Parents play a big role in making sure the session goes as smoothly as possible for their little one. However in my case, I was the one who had to make sure my baby did not run away while I tried to take the photos.
That is usually the case. Maryam does not like to sit in one spot for long. But when it came to smashing cakes, Maryam was a pro. She really dug in to that cake and covered her mouth in green icing.
Maryam turned 1 on June 11. This was one cake smash I was extremely excited about. I had been planning it all in my head for months. I even made her little outfit – a cute little sari – to represent half of her cultural background, India.
The best part was the cake! Hats off to local baker, Beenish Naqui of Sweet Joy Bake Shop. I showed her a picture of the outfit with the color and Beenish baked a cake that matched it perfectly!
I decided to go with an Indian theme for the cake smash photography session. To make it stand out, I used bright colors, which represent the vibrant culture, which worked out perfectly because these colors photographed so well.
So, here you have it folks…Maryam’s Cake Smash Session!
