Candy Themed Cake Smash

Over the course of the past year I’ve had the pleasure of watching Jemma grow up. She has always been a bit fiesty with me, but I’ve loved watching that part of her personality develop.

Jemma first came to me for her newborn photos; then came again at 4 months, and 8 months. I also saw her for a special session with her mommy last summer. Like every birthday session for babies who’ve been with me since their newborn days, Jemma’s cake smash was a little bit bittersweet.

The cake smash signaled the end of our every four month get togethers, but boy was the cake smash itself sweet! Jemma’s parents chose a candy themed cake smash and requested soft pinks and creams. The backdrop for Jemma’s cake smash was custom designed to match the one in sample images her mom sent me. Wooden crates, lots of candy, marshmallows, and paper pompoms rounded out the set.  Aileen’s Cake Decor designed Jemma’s cake to look like a melting ice cream cone, with lots of sprinkles too.

Before the cake smash, we did Jemma’s first birthday portraits. The pink backdrop was almost perfect with Jemma’s beautiful eyes!

Bathtime was a huge hit also! Jemma splashed and smiled and spent lots of time just being cute.Smiling baby in a plastic clawfoot tub after candy themed cake smash.

    Toy Story Themed Cake Smash

    While most of the kiddos that come to see me for cake smashes are celebrating their first birthday, I LOVE getting to work with older kids too. Jacoby came to me to celebrate his third birthday with a Toy Story themed cake smash.

    As a child, I loved watching Toy Story. Maybe because of those fond memories, I still love the movie. My children have also discovered a love for the Toy Story franchise. Because of this, planning Jacoby’s session was easy! I cut the clouds for the backdrop, and borrowed the toys from my son. The banner features red check, yellow, blue, and cow print fabrics. Colorful balloons and a box with Sunnyside written on the side add the perfect touch. Jacoby’s dinosaur and slinky dog came along for the session too, and made it even more special.

    Jacoby dressed up as both Buzz Lightyear, and Woody. His dinosaur was a huge help during the session! Jacoby wasn’t fond of the cake on his hands, and used Rex to eat the cake. It was hilarious to watch Jacoby lick the cake off of Rex.
