One of the newest trends in consumer photography has been the Cake Smash Photo Session. Traditionally, the celebration of the tots first birthday may have included a small cake in which the kiddo was allowed to destroy at the party, but it has become popular recently to set up a photo session before the party and use the photos for invites and flyers. Cake smashes can also be done at the party, but elaborate studio or in home sessions provide a memorable keepsake for parents to cherish. It takes a small bit of planning and Pinterest is full of suggestions and photo ideas. Etsy has everything you need for props and outfits and local cake stores can usually provide a smaller cake with the purchase of a large one.
