When you wish upon a star … This is the year of the cake smash for Looking Up Photography! Today, I have this fun, gold star-inspired cake smash session to share with you. Don’t worry – I’ll have more studio cake smash sessions coming your way soon!
Being a mom myself, there are certain things that are just a blast for me as a photographer, too. Photographing cake smash sessions is definitely one of them! It is so much fun seeing how differently each baby reacts to their cake (plus, I get my baby fix!).
Darling Mia was set up with a golden, starry celebration inspired by the 1920s, to match her nursery décor. A mix of complementary pastels and soft metallics were in order for this session, with lots of balloons and a beautifully frosted cake. And how exquisite is Mia, dressed in her birthday best? I’ve been dying to share this session!
Any fancy Gatsby-inspired party for a one year-old must involve pink and lots of tulle! A snow-colored first birthday dress plus plenty of balloons did the trick! Balloons are one of my favorite cake smash session touches for a little extra texture. We can always customize balloons to your colors and theme.
I love how whimsical this session is. It’s the perfect blend of refined and still very first birthday-feeling. Nothing like a sparkly floral headband to dress up an ensemble! Some gold stars were added in the background to tie the session to Mia’s nursery décor seamlessly. Aren’t they the cutest?
