First birthday cake smashes are always best with a theme! I LOVE coming up with a unique set for each one – I get super crafty with these and hand make many of the decorations we use based on my client’s unique vision. The cake smashes always end up so fun and festive! I love being a cake smash photographer – celebrating Baby’s first birthday with Mischief and Laughs is the perfect way to commemorate this big milestone!

This Mickey Mouse cake smash is no exception – momma showed me the adorable outfit she had for his party, and inspiration flowed from there! I love crafting a special setup for each of my cake smash babies, no two are exactly alike!

If you are in Rochester, NY or Cincinnati, OH and you’d like to celebrate your baby’s first birthday in this special way, drop us a line! I’d love to chat with you more about ideas. And for clients in the Finger Lakes region, no worries if your baby’s birthday falls in the cold winter months – we have a wonderful studio right in the heart of the Canandaigua historic district.

Of course, every cake smash starts with some sweet portraits – it is so important to capture your whole family at this time! I’ve never had a client who said “oh I wish I hadn’t had pictures taken with my baby.” They all LOVE that the first birthday session is a time to celebrate their whole family and the big milestone they’ve come to together!

And after a few family portraits with mom and dad, we took a little break to change baby and get ready for the main event – the cake! I love the way this Mickey Mouse cake smash set turned out!
