5 Tips for A Successful Space Themed First Birthday Cake Smash Session

Planning a space-themed first birthday party? Then you probably also need a first birthday cake smash photography session! I mean, they only turn one once – right?! Get ready to capture adorable moments of joy and messiness with these expert tips for a stellar cake smash session. I’m here to guide you through creating the perfect cake smash experience.

  • Hire an Out of this World Professional:

    I know I’m bias, but if you are going to do a cake smash you might as well go all out and hire a professional that focuses on cake smash sessions. You won’t regret it!

  • Outfit fit for an Astronaut:

    When you work with me as your, Indianapolis cake smash photographer, I ask you to provide your birthday child’s outfit. So you are going to want to pick something that your little birthday astronaut can wear. When working with me, this is where your work ends! Just shoot me an email (at least 3 weeks before your cake smash session with a picture of your child’s birthday outfit) and I’ll take care of the rest!

  • Cosmic Cake Creation:

    I’ll start with a cake that screams space adventure. I work with one of the best cake shops in the city – Classic Cakes in Carmel to come up with eye popping cakes. I’ll work with them to come up with a matching cosmic cake for your little one’s birthday.

  • Timing is Key:

    Plan the cake smash session when the birthday child is in a good mood. If they’re well-rested and fed, they’re more likely to enjoy the experience, leading to genuine smiles and laughter. I typically schedule cake smash pictures at 9:30am or 12:3pm on weekdays in the studio. If those times don’t mesh well with your little one’s nap schedule just let me know and I’ll do my best to accommodate.

  • Sit Back and Enjoy the Cosmic Adventure:

    Embark on a stress-free cosmic adventure during your space-themed first birthday cake smash session. As your photographer, my goal is to provide you with an effortless experience. This allows you to sit back and fully enjoy the magical moments without the need to manage your little one’s attention. No worries about orchestrating poses or capturing perfect shots – I’ve got it all covered. From ensuring optimal lighting to documenting those messy and delightful expressions. I’ll handle every detail (and capture the details in the process). This session is designed to be a carefree and enjoyable journey for everyone. I can’t wait to create authentic and heartwarming memories that capture the unique personality of your tiny astronaut as they explore the sweet unknown of their first birthday cake.

  • Print your Stellar Cake Smash Photos:

    Don’t let the magic of the space-themed first birthday cake smash session fade away in the digital realm – remember to print your cherished photos. As your photographer, I provide convenient options, offering professionally crafted albums and prints for you to relish these moments in tangible form. Alternatively, you have the freedom to choose your preferred printing method. My personal favorite way to use your cake smash pictures – a cake smash thank you card. This personalized touch allows you to express gratitude to friends and family who attended the birthday celebration, sharing the joyous memories captured during this special occasion. It’s a wonderful way to extend the enchantment of the cake smash beyond the event and into the hands and hearts of your loved ones.

Now enjoy this adorable out of this world space themed cake smash session.
