Getting Started

This cake smash journey starts with a personal consultation where we discuss your vision and preferences for this special celebration. From choosing a theme to selecting the perfect location, I aim to create a session that reflects your child’s personality and the joy of this significant milestone.


Whether it’s indoors with a designed set-up or outdoors in a natural setting, I ensure the location adds to the fun and festivity of your baby’s first birthday celebration. I’m happy to bring the studio to your home or help you find the perfect outdoor location to bring your vision to life.

The Photoshoot

The cake smash photoshoot is all about letting your little one have fun in the most adorable way. We encourage them to explore, taste, and play with the cake, capturing every giggle, mess, and expression of wonder. My approach is relaxed and patient, ensuring your baby enjoys their special moment to the fullest.

Image Editing

After the messy fun, I meticulously edit the photos to highlight the vibrant colors, joyous expressions, and memorable moments of the cake smash. My editing process ensures that the photos are not just beautiful but also capture the essence of this joyful celebration.

Package Options

I offer one standard cake smash package, but am happy to create a custom package specifically for you if it does not meet your needs. Ultimately my goal is to create the perfect keepsakes to remember your baby’s first birthday.

“Karla is amazing at what she does! Even with all the kiddos we have, she is so patient with all of them and captures the greatest moments! She really listens to what you want during your session. We are beyond thankful we found Karla!”
