Costa Mesa Cake Smash photographer | Nautical theme

Costa Mesa Cake Smash photographer – 1st birthday

Alex’s mom came through with the outfits for this cake smash session! It’s always great to have options to play with. The tutu was my favorite part. We put together a simple set on white so the pinks and blues would really pop out. We have photographed this family for all 3 of their children (since 2010) and it’s always fun to see how much the girls have grown.

Designing the perfect cake

We love these giant cupcakes that French’s Cupcake Bakery creates for our sessions. French’s has been a local favorite in Costa Mesa since 1976!  We send their cake designer the colors and themes, and they create awesomeness! Cake smashes are quickly becoming our most popular session here at the studio (you can tell by our overflowing prop storage area). We love creating cute backgrounds for these babies! All part of being a Costa Mesa cake smash photographer, right?

Keep an eye on the blog for some really cool new sets we have created. We will be showing you an outer space theme and also a race car theme.

Cake Smash for every sibling

Just for fun, I posted both of Alex’s sisters cake smash sessions below. Seven years ago, we just photographed them on paper! Funny to see how things have evolved 🙂
