NYC 'Cake Smash' Photographer


New York Cake Smash Photography

Our New York cake smash photography shoots are scheduled for an hour for the entire shoot. We provide the cake and the set, you'll just need some baby wipes, quite a lot of baby wipes! But we're on hand to help with clean-up!

These shoots are such a joy and so much fun and the pictures are something to treasure. The expressive candid moments as your little one explores the cake, the textures and the taste, are really unique and often surprising.

The first part of the shoot we get "clean" pictures, some nice portraits and candid moments of your baby playing, smiling, and crawling around the set exploring and having fun. For the 2nd part it's cake Armageddon, which is sort of self-explanatory. So you'll get a good mix of images that you can use for announcements, invites or thank you cards as well as for framed prints or you can purchase the retouched digital images.


We offer two cake smash themes: pink gold and white for girls, and blue gold and white for boys, but let us know your ideas if you'd like your own unique theme. We supply a 9 x 6" Victoria sponge with frosting in blue or pink, decorated in a swirl pattern. The cake itself is quite delicious! We finish it with a unique topper. If you'd like to bring your own cake — and with cake design the sky is the limit — you're more than welcome. Gluten-free options are available.

Cake smash shoots are suitable for 1 year olds & 2 year olds. If you have twins or even triplets (yikes!) then contact the studio.

Prep for the shoot is very simple: pick a cute outfit and accessories that fits the theme you'd like. Allow 30 minutes to clean up your little one afterwards, we provide towels and paper but bring your preferred wipes. Accessories and items can be hand-washed at the studio before you leave. Feel free to bring a doggy bag if you want a slice of cake to take home.
