2020 Cake Smash Bucket List

It’s no secret that cake smashes are some of my favorite sessions! I love getting to celebrate baby’s first birthday, and create a really fun session at the same time. Cake smashes let me get creative with set design too. Every year I have a Cake Smash Bucket List. These are themes that I’m really excited to bring to life, and they’re offered at a $50 discount. Sessions booked as part of this promotion also receive a free digital slideshow.

This year, there’s a little something for everyone on the cake smash bucket list. From construction, to spaghetti and nautical to princess I’ve got a wide range of themes open for discounted bookings.

Just one catch- once a bucket list session is done the first time it’s off the bucket list. These special sessions will book up quick!

If you’d like to claim one of the themes, just send me a message through the contact form. Don’t worry, you can book now to reserve your spot and the discount and hold your session at a later date.

As always, all cake smash sessions include:
-First birthday portraits before the cake smash
-The cake smash itself
-Splash photos in a baby sized clawfoot bathtub
-A professionally made cake from Aileen’s Cake Decor in Pueblo
K.D. Elise Photography's 2020 cake smash bucket list sessions. List includes: trains, happy sharks, detective, teddy bear, neutral boho, nautical, princess, firemen, construction, spaghetti, rubber ducky and peaches and cream.

Lyric’s Milestone Session

Getting to see babies as newborns, and then again for their milestone sessions really cements the fact that babies grow so very quickly! What is a milestone session? It’s a special session for babies to capture their special milestones. We often plan these around the time baby starts tummy time (3-4 months), then sitting (6 months), and finally standing (9 months). Milestone sessions are a wonderful way to capture baby’s first year.

It seems like Lyric was just in the studio for her newborn session, but she’s already more than six months old! Her mama recently brought her back in for her six month milestone session. Like with most babies, I was surprised by how much she had already grown and changed!

Since it was nearly Christmas, we decided to do some Christmas themed photos. With a red and green outfit, and a floral headband Lyric was quite festive! She sometimes needed just a little bit of help staying steady while sitting so we used a variety of props. In typical baby fashion, she really loved the shiny red Christmas ornaments!

We also used some flowery backdrops to match some adorable new rompers. All of the outfits Lyric wore during her session are available in the studio for use during milestone sessions! A wooden bowl, and a cute rounded basket helped Lyric stay steady when she started getting wobbly. She gave me the most beautiful smile!
