First Year Baby Portraits and Cake Smash :: Chelmsford
This little guy came to my studio from Chelmsford to celebrate his first birthday with cake smash photos. There is no better way to celebrate your first birthday than by dressing up like a lumberjack and smashing some cake! I loved Mama’s theme idea of lumberjack. And the theme lent itself perfectly to my rustic dark wood background. I also happen to have a veritable forest of fake trees, pine cones and lanterns at the ready! This cake smash and set was perfectly in line with my personal style. But what does a 1 year old really care about that? Not much! However, I’d say baby L was pretty psyched about the cake and hilariously went at it!
I’ve been photographing this Chelmsford family’s portraits for a couple of years now, starting with big sister’s newborn portraits. My head is spinning thinking about it because today I’m sharing portraits from younger brother’s first year birthday session! Time flies. I know this family is so happy to have these portraits to look back on the stages of their two kids during the first year, and beyond. Happy birthday!
Including a Theme in these Chelmsford Cake Smash Photos
Cake smash photos are the perfect opportunity to include a theme. Because cake smash sessions are all about having fun! Getting colorful, getting playful, and celebrating. For some, this means brightly colored balloons. But for others it’s all about the theme. My team is always up for a cake smash theme challenge and we have never met a theme we don’t love!

Displaying Your Child’s Portraits At Home
So often when we think of displaying photos in our homes, we think of living rooms or main staircases. But what about or child’s room or play room? I love the idea of using photos from their newborn, toddler or their first birthday cake smash photo session to decorate their own space. This is especially great when the theme or colors from their session tie into the room. A theme like this Chelmsford cake smash could definitely work in a bedroom or nursery. Gallery wrap canvases are the perfect option for children’s rooms and playrooms. Not only do they look great, but they’re super durable too. No more worrying about framed photos falling and glass breaking. Not sure how a canvas will look in your child’s space? I can create a wall art mock-up for you. Below is an example using a stock photo of a child’s room and photos from this Chelmsford cake smash. But yours will be on your actual walls so that you will know what your photo will look like.
