My nephew Vincent recently turned one so when I was asked about doing a baseball themed cake smash photo shoot I was excited. I had moved since my last cake smash shoot so this would be the first one in my new home. The house I bought has an in-law suite that I hope one day to turn into a small photography studio. With Vinny’s cake smash being the first job in the new area, it was fun to experiment setting up the lighting, backdrop, and flooring. Thank you Vinny for being my guinea pig!
When preparing for a cake smash, it’s best to choose a time of the day that works for your subject because inevitably, they will be hesitant about diving into the cake and getting started. Some kiddos have never even had a taste of cake and are unsure of what to do. Add some crabbiness into the mix and it’s sure to fail. Vinny was a little crabby at first, but once he tasted the cake, he was all about the photo shoot! Happy first birthday, Slugger!
