A Panda Bear Cake Smash with Saratoga Springs Baby Photographer

I love starting our first birthday sessions with family portraits, and I was so excited to welcome this family back to the studio for their son’s cake smash by starting first with some gorgeous family portraits at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga Springs. It’s only 2 miles from our studio, and it’s filled with so many unique and beautiful spots for your family’s photos!

Jackson let his fun-loving personality shine! His favorite color is yellow, so his parents dressed him in all the yellow and even asked to incorporate his favorite hue into the cake smash decor. I love that!!

We celebrated Jackson’s first birthday with a panda bear cake smash! Bamboo backdrop, panda bears & bamboo on his cake, and yellow paper lanterns for a festive touch. I absolutely adore how this set came together, and Jackson LOVED his cake, too!

Most babies get really excited when we hand them a wooden spoon partway through the cake smash, and Jackson loved digging into his cake with the spoon and watching the frosting fly everywhere when he was smashing it!
