Roman's Where The Wild Things Are Cake Smash- Calgary Cake Smash Photography

“Oh, please don't go—we'll eat you up—we love you so!” Pretty much describes how I felt photographing this baby boy! I didnt want to stop! This book is a favorite among my own children and I had been dying to photograph this theme in the form of a cake smash. I knew planning this session I wanted to bring the book to life. The wild rumpus scene is one of my favorites. So after brainstorming and brainstorming I came up with the idea of the little silhouettes and brought them to life! They are 100% real and not photo-shopped in.

Creatively, cake smash sessions are my favorite! I love that I can be creative not only with my photography but with crafts and design which is another passion of mine.  I discuss in detail the vision and theme with each parent, and then create a one of a kind set for your baby. No two sets are ever alike.  Admittedly these are A LOT of work, however I love the feeling of stepping back and seeing everything come together and what I was able to accomplish. 

I design everything! From custom banners, to decor, cake toppers and I can even create a custom onesie to match your set!! A fully decorated set is INCLUDED in the price of the cake smash sessions. Which you can find here. I offer a level of commitment and creativity you will not find anywhere else in Calgary.

I have attached some highlights from some of my recent cake smash sessions. From simple and sweet to extravagant and bold. There is nothing I can not put together!!! I will describe what I did for each set. You think it and I will create it.

Soren & Bohdi's Newborn Session - Calgary Newborn photographer

I love any chance I get to photograph multiples, because if there is anything better than one baby, its more than one baby! This family was so photogenic! Right down to 18 month “big” brother Hudson! One would think this session would be extra hard, but Hudson blew me away! He was the most amazing little toddler I have ever photographed at this age! Enjoy these super adorable photos of three little brothers :)

Scarlett's Newborns Session - Calgary Newborn Photographer

Scarlett and her big sister photographed like little Angels! Their sister photo is so precious. Mom had the dress bought and I matched and styled the image to the dress. I couldn’t be happier with the results and mom was in love too!

Ellie's Cake Smash Photo Session - Calgary Photographer

I absolutely can not look at a single photo of this baby girl without completely MELTING!!! She is the most adorable little thing!! And her little personality is bigger than her she has sass she has spunk and I could just keep her! She absolutely performed for her smash! She was all about the camera. This Ice Cream Parlor theme is one of my all time favorites.

I LOVE cake smashes! I love getting hands on and creating these sets from scratch. Everything you see is created by me the banners the signs, the custom ice cream containers etc. After spending hours on decorating sets I purchased a die cutting machine that helps me to create absolutely anything using my Photoshop design capabilities.

Daniel's Newborn Photo session - Calgary Newborn Photographer

This sweet boy was a response to a model call I had placed out last month (currently closed) Daniel was a perfect choice of a model as he made me WORK for it! haha! Those precious little peepers of his barely shut! Which is such a rare occurrence for my warm studio space and cozy wraps! Regardless he was an excellent sport, so calm and sweet! I even managed to sneak in some video time of behind the scenes. Which is coming soon! For now I hope you enjoy this baby boy and the art I created of his precious time being this tiny.

Cake smash GALORE !!!!! ~Calgary, Alberta Photographer~

Cake smashes have almost become a sort of "right of passage" for little babies reaching their 1st year milestone! These wildly popular sessions are SO much fun and the results will guarantee smiles and laughs for years to come.  Admittedly these sessions are a lot of work! I customize each cake smash session for your baby. I hand design all my sets and make all the props. From extravagant scenes/setups to a simple color scheme. Whatever you think up I bring it to life. I also only take a few of these sessions a month due to the time consuming nature so.... book fast! ;)

Cake smash images are some of my favorite. Nothing brings out baby faces, expressions, and smiles quite like a delicious cake! Below is a collaboration of some of my recent cake smash sessions.  

Lochlan had a Dr. Sesus themed session. I hand painted those red strips . This little guys nickname is Chocolate! Which was SO fitting because he enjoyed the chocolate much more than the cake ;) I LOVED this little guy. Take a look at his last image. Babies may not be able to talk but that doesn't stop them from communicating. You can clearly see he is telling us he is DONE :D

Rayne, this little sweetie is all about the purple! Mom picked the most perfect colors and outfit for this session. I absolutely loved the purple/teal/pink color combo. I photographed Rayne's newborn session (and used purple!) 

Georgia & Charlee - I have photographed these two little beauties a few times now including their newborn session. I love watching these two sweeties grow. I was pretty pumped to have these two in the studio for their cake smash. This set was so fun. The bright colors just popped so perfectly with their little tutus!

Xavier, seriously this little dude and those curls. Can it get any sweeter???? Xavier is another little one who I also photographed his newborn photos! His cake smash theme was a blue ombre. Mom informed me his birthday party was "Twinkle twinkle little star" so I of course had to bring out my moon prop. His overalls and little diaper cover was just so adorable and made by "Sew Bright Creations" Also Xaviers mom made his cake as well as makes them for others. I will link to both their instagrams below.


Harper, this gal is part of my watch me grow program. And I have done just that! This little miss has came to me for her newborn, 6 months, 9 months and most recently her cake smash. I even photographed her pregnancy announcement! Mom had this beautiful dress custom made just for this little princess so we designed the set to match! We were going for a "princess" theme. You have GOT to check out her converse and how mom glammed them up!

When you bring your baby in for this session its important to remember to just sit back and wait for the magic to happen. This is usually all new territory for them and can sometimes take them a little bit to wrap their mind around the fact there is a whole cake in front of them, just for them! Below are a few tips to help ensure a smooth and successful cake smash session

TIP #1 : Take your cake out the fridge at least 2 hours prior to your session. Cold cakes can be firm cakes making it much harder for baby to dig into.

TIP #2: Bring something to wash it down. All that sticky sugary frosting well think peanut butter. I have found little ones who start to get fussy have a drink of water and then be able to jump right back in.

TIP #3: Mom and/or Dad bring a change of clothes. I know the cake is for baby and you are not expecting to be involved but most times it looks like you were right there digging in too ;)

TIP #4: A wet face cloth in a ziplock baggie can really do so much more than baby wipes!

Other than that just sit back and enjoy! You clean your baby and Ill clean the mess.
