Cake Smash Photographer in Dallas
Recently I met with my former wedding clients to plan their baby’s first birthday portrait session. By the end of the design consultation, we had this beautiful teal ombre cake smash concept planned. At the last minute, we also decided to do a really fun and crazy The Office Themed Cake Smash. I love coming up with beautiful new designs to celebrate every age with my clients. And to create artwork for their home to display those memories.
For the Teal Ombre Cake Smash, I worked with my friend Annemarie Duebner of Smallcakes at Preston and Beltline in Dallas. I told her what I wanted and she came up with the most beautiful (and delicious) cake. A favorite family color is teal so we worked that into the design, and I just knew an ombre effect would be perfect.
Annmarie and her team did an amazing job on this beautiful cake. It was to die for delicious. Did I mention there were two cake smashes during this session? Well that meant I got to keep one of the cakes and sample away. Believe me, I did. Super yummy!
We added baby boy’s favorite stuffed animals to the set-up because he loves them so much.
How do you get a reluctant baby to smash their cake?
Sometimes it takes a few tricks to get baby to tear apart the cake. After all, how many times in their lives have they been allowed to eat a whole cake? This time mom brought some yogurt melts and I stuck them in the cake for baby to dig out.
I think he’s actually eating a yogurt melt here 😉

After all that cake smashing it was time to clean up!
Don’t Forget Family Portraits
We finished up our fun cake smashes with a few family portraits. I love including family photography in every session. Everyone needs a beautiful family portrait gracing the walls of their home.
