Ottawa Cake Smash Photographer

A cake smash is a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday and capture memorable photographs of your baby as they reach this exciting milestone. There’s nothing sweeter than witnessing a one-year-old tasting birthday cake for the first time!

Every cake smash begins with a portrait session using a backdrop of your choice and an adorable outfit from my collection. Next is the fun part where your baby is presented with the cake and you get to discover if he or she will tackle it like a football, delicately poke at the icing, or just stare at it inquisitively wondering what they are supposed to do next! Either way, it's a joy to watch! And lastly, you have the option to add on a bubble bath in the green tub to wash off all that delicious sticky icing!  Most times that's the baby's favourite part, splashing and playing in the bubbles! Sessions are typically booked 4 weeks in advance to allow time for editing and printing should you decide to use the images for birthday invitations and party decor!
