Clinton Township Cake Smash Photographer - 5 reasons to book a cake smash photoshoot!
As a professional photographer, I have had the pleasure of witnessing countless little ones celebrate their first birthdays with a cake smash session. In this blog, I'll share my experiences, tips, and behind-the-scenes stories to help you understand the magic behind these super fun memory-making photoshoots!
1. Why Cake Smash Photography?
From the adorable props to the messy (and fun!) process, this type of session has become a tradition for so many families that they can look back on with a huge smile!
2. Preparing for the Perfect Cake Smash Session
A successful cake smash session begins long before the cake is placed in front of the birthday boy or birthday girl. We work together in the weeks prior to the photoshoot to pick the right cake and design, select the perfect themed props and backgrounds, and setting up the ideal environment to capture those candid moments. My Macomb Township studio is fully stocked with countless backdrops and props to add to your cake smash theme and I am a cake smash photographer for Clinton Township and all of Macomb and Oakland Counties.
3. Behind the Lens: The Art of Photographing Cake Smash Sessions
Cake smash photography demands a particular set of skills and techniques to capture the excitement of the celebration. The lighting of the set up, the way you interact with the birthday boy or girl and how you plan the decor placement is all part of the process that leads to a successful and fun session!.
4. Themes and Trends: Adding a Personal Touch
From whimsical fairytales to adorable animals and everything in between, cake smash themes are a delightful way to add a personal touch to each session. In this particular session we had an Elmo theme and it was so cute and colorful!
5. Making Memories: The Emotional Impact of Cake Smash Photography
Beyond the adorable pictures, cake smash photography holds a profound emotional impact for parents - it is a milestone for their little ones - laughter, eating food, sitting and crawling and sometimes even standing or walking too. So much of this is captured within this milestone photoshoot and watching it all unfold is a priceless memory in itself!
