Houston Cake Smash Photography

Cake Smash Session Houston Texas

Is there anything sweeter than seeing your baby enjoy their first taste of sugary goodness? Cake smash sessions are the perfect way to celebrate your baby’s transition into toddlerhood. Let your child explore, play and make a mess (possibly the only mess you don’t have to clean up after!) in a relaxed and carefree session, designed to capture the joy that comes with this new stage in life.

Each cake smash session is custom designed for both simplicity and timelessness. La Vie Photography specializes in a personalized approach to your baby’s milestones. As such, we love creating sessions that are specific to each baby who comes to our Downtown Houston photography studio.




Cake Smash Inspiration 

Your little one’s first birthday is something worth celebrating! Did you know that your Cake Smash session will always include “clean” images that will provide you with some timeless portraits before the beautiful mess begins. Also, a lot of our clients choose to include family portraits in their first birthday session. All of this is included in a single session with props, decorations, baby’s wardrobe, and the cake all provided for you! During your studio consultation we’ll discuss what’s most important to you and style your session to fit your needs.

A Cake Smash session also doesn’t have to include cake!  Many of our favorite sessions have babies enjoying their favorite treats and foods to celebrate their first birthday. If you’re looking for some creative inspiration for making this timeless tradition your own, browse some of our past first birthday celebrations! And since your baby is one of a kind, we believe that your cake smash should be just as unique as they are.

Baby Steps

Most of the First Birthday Cake Smash sessions come to the studio as part of our Baby Steps package, capturing all your baby’s first milestones. With a Baby Steps Package, we will spend a lot of time together over your baby’s first year. This means our studio has a good idea about your family’s style and aesthetics, allowing us to create custom artwork that both matches your family’s home as well as tells a story of your baby’s first year.

These early days of motherhood will flicker by, each milestone burning brightly and fading just as quickly into the next new step towards childhood. Contact me now to preserve these precious moments, so you have them to hold on to long after your baby is too big to be held.
