As a New Jersey cake smash photographer, I’m so excited to share this studio cake smash session with you today! When the Lyons Family reached out about cake smash first birthday photos, I just couldn’t wait to work with them! There’s something so special about first birthday sessions. I adore their little personalities and the way they interact with the world. Designing and photographing cake smash sessions is always one of my favorites. Bonus here, her mama actually is a baker (check out The Humming Baker)!

Cake Smash Session for Charlotte | New Jersey Cake Smash Photographer | Golden Heart Photography

As soon as Charlotte and her mama, Paige, arrived to the cake smash session I knew this was going to turn out so sweet! We warmed Charlotte up to the pictures during our portrait session, with the use of my favorite piece of magic… SNACKS. Charlotte was all about the snacks… and eating cake. This stage is so special and something to truly celebrate as parents. We are actually celebrating the parents too! I know the nights can be long, exhausting and hard … but look at this sweet cake covered face!

Our cake smash took place in my home studio space. I worked with Paige ahead of our session planning the perfect backdrop, props and providing outfit suggestions. Charlotte loved having her mama join her for some sweet photos (these are just a peek). I love capturing the connection you share. Charlotte made some of the best faces when digging into her cake … blowing kisses, clapping hands and truly being adorable.

To the Lyons Family, thank you so much for allowing me to capture these precious memories for you! Your family is so sweet, and it was great getting to know you better. I can’t wait to see you all continue to grow together! 

Enjoy this little peek into this sweet cake smash session!
