Planning Your Baby’s Cake Smash Session | Tips & Inspiration

Where has the time gone? Your baby’s first year of life has flown by in what seems like a blink of an eye. Cake smash sessions are the best ways to kick off the birthday celebration. I’ve complied a couple of useful tips to help with planning your baby’s cake smash session.


During our chat, we’ll discuss themes for the session. This is the time to be most creative, I want to know all of your ideas. I own several backdrops from an Arabian princess all the way down to a little slugger baseball player. The possibilities are endless!




  • If you’re planning to use portraits at the birthday party, schedule the session when baby is 11 months old. This will allow for editing and portrait orders.
  • Try on outfits before the session to make sure it’s a perfect fit.
  • Bring a few snacks and drinks to keep baby calm during the session.
  • I always discuss food allergies before the session for safety. I use Pine Cone Bakery and all of her cakes are absolutely amazing!
  • Lastly, one most important tip is to relax. Baby’s mood is determined by their parents. This is the time to let them shine and be themselves.
