Finding a theme for a Cake Smash.
This has to be the best part of shooting cake smashes. A lot of the time, I look around my children's room and I find inspiration. This theme the client actually came up with and I was thrilled with the idea. I've said before, you don't want too many props as you can overwhelm a child at a session. You want just enough accents to give a feel and then the portrait and cake smash will all pull itself together.
What I love about the different themes is that it gives parents the chance to really incorporate their child's personality into the photo. You are not stuck with just a white seamless background, you can have purple or pink or blue! I typically tell people to book these at least 3 weeks out so I can order the correct props.
If you can't think of a theme, that's okay! That's what the photographer is for! I'll ask you a series of questions and then you can pick from a list of ideas I come up with. It's that easy!
