1st birthday cake smash – Orange County Photographer

1st birthday cake smash – Rainbow party theme

We are in love with this 1st birthday cake smash session! This was our 3rd session with June- and she just continues to get cuter each time! (you can check out June’s 6 month session here) Mom wanted a colorful rainbow theme so we went a little crazy with it. We loved the background so much, that we took a photo of it and made it into a backdrop. 🙂 The adorable rainbow themed cake was created by the one and only, French’s Cupcake Bakery in Costa Mesa. The round confetti on the floor gave it even more color!

1st Birthday Cake Smash Themes

Coming up with these 1st birthday cake smash themes is so much fun! Hours go into researching, designing, purchasing props, and finally assembling these photography sets. We love this part of the job and are always up for the challenge! As artists, it’s so rewarding to watch it all come together the day of the session. Be sure to explore some of our favorite cake smash sessions on the Gilmore Studios Pinterest board or the Cake Smash gallery on our website.
