Cake Smash Photos | Baby Photographer CT Glastonbury

Baby tasting cake with fingers and feet in cake One Big Happy PhotoMeet Dylan, the cutest little bundle of joy all wrapped up in a baby boy. His Mom loved how his newborn photos turned out so much, that she couldn’t wait to have him grow enough to get some cake smash photos taken.

I make sure to let the baby really show off all of the skills they have either mastered or are working on. Like learning their letters. . . yeah, well, maybe reaching a bit here. But he sure did love the twinkly lights on these babies.

Baby with 1st birthday hat on eating his cake One Big Happy PhotoThere is a secret to cake smash photos. You see, most babies have never had real sugar by the time they reach age 1. So plopping a cake down in front of them is like putting a whole watermelon in front of them. You get that, “what am I suppose to do with this?” look. And then once they taste the cake, for many of them it is so overly sweet, compared to the applesauce they’ve been getting, that they want nothing to do with it.

So, the secret to successful cake smash photos. . . let them eat cake at least twice before you have your cake smash photo shoot! Then, they know what they’re getting, are excited to eat it, and usually dive right in.

The perfect “ending”, yeah I went there, to a cake smash. Mom airlifting the baby out of the mess and straight towards the tub! Dylan had a great time, as did both Mom and I, because there is almost nothing cuter than a sweet little baby enjoying himself.
