Classic Blue and Gold Cake Smash

Baby Boy’s First Birthday Cake Smash Session in Blue

Sometimes simple is better.  When I spoke with this little man’s mommy about what she envisioned for his first birthday pictures, she said that she wanted a classic blue and gold cake smash.  The beauty about cake smash sets is that each one is different, and the creative possibilities are endless.  But sometimes you don’t need an elaborate theme to make a spectacular impression.  Just a simple color scheme will do the trick.  In this case, we went all in with blue and gold, and I love how it came out!

I set the stage for this cake smash photoshoot with my Savage Seamless backdrop in the color Sky Blue.  I love using my seamless paper for cake smash photo sessions because it is so easy to clean up afterwards.  All I do is cut off the portion that gets messy and toss it out.  Not to mention these rolls come in so many great colors!  Next I strung a gold circle garland and a pennant banner in various shades of blue.  I always custom-make each banner for my cake smash setups to match each theme perfectly.  Lastly,  I topped it off with matching balloons and tissue pom-poms.  Everything looked perfect for a blue and gold cake smash!

The birthday boy and his parents were wonderful to work with.  They made sure to bring the perfect cake and outfit to match the theme.  It was decorated with blue frosting and edible gold glitter on top. His mommy even brought some small wooden letters that spell ONE, which made for some really cute pictures.  She dressed him in a blue diaper cover, suspenders, and a little bow tie.  Many parents choose suspenders as part of the cake smash outfit for little boys, and it looks so classic and cute!

Cute Cake Smash Photos

I have so many favorite images from this session!  This little guy was so fun to photograph, and had the most genuine smiles.  It definitely helped that both his mommy and daddy attended the session and stayed right by my side as we all clapped and sang and cheered him on.  He truly enjoyed his cake and gave us plenty of great photo ops.

I find that the best cake smash photos happen when I work in conjunction with the parents to make sure and really bring their vision to life.  And we truly nailed it for this classic blue and gold cake smash setup, if I do say so myself!
