Moonrise Kingdom Birthday Themed Cake Smash

Moonrise Kingdom 1st Birthday Cake Smash

This was our very first Moonrise Kingdom birthday cake smash! Moonrise Kingdom is mom’s favorite TV show so we knew we had to step up our game! We are always up for a new challenge 🙂 After raiding my kid’s boy scout drawer for props, we went to work on the background. Baby Dream Backdrops had an awesome forest backdrop that worked perfect for this set design. The backdrop is called “In the wild”. We already had some fun camping props from previous newborn sessions so we really didn’t need to look very far. We literally have hundreds of props to choose from, right here in the studio! If your little one is having a first birthday, look no further then Gilmore Studios in Costa Mesa, CA.

Be sure to check out Heath’s newborn session here!
