Celebrate Your Baby’s First Year with Fun Cake Smash Photos


Celebrating your baby's first birthday is such a special milestone, for both your baby and you! I understand just how important these portraits are and I don’t take that responsibility lightly. That’s why I take the time to meticulously customize each session according to your unique preferences and requests.

• Style and Concept Consultation

  I'll come to your home for a consultation before the session to get to know your family. This is especially helpful for your little ones (and husbands who don't love taking photos) so they are more comfortable with me on session day. We'll also discuss my ideas for your session, plan the custom set design, and review my Artwork Guide & sample products.
About a 1.5-2 hour session in your home
 Since I bring the professional studio to the comfort and safety of your home, you don't have to worry about going anywhere or needing anything during the session. I will bring everything for the session including the props, outfits for your baby, and a cake (pending allergies).
 The session time will be based on your baby's schedule. I'll take photos of your baby before the cake, with the cake, and in a bath at the end. My goal is to create timeless images you’ll love now and forever.
Optional Family Portraits
  If you would like to take family portraits at the beginning of the session, we can do that as well. I'll help you plan your outfits during our consultation. I also have a professional makeup artist who can come to your home (for a fee), so you have one less thing on your to-do list.
Design Appointment
 After the session, I will work hand in hand with you to curate beautiful artwork perfect for decorating your home with love. You do not have to make a decision about what you want to order until the design appointment. During the design appointment, we will review your portraits for the first time, choose your favorites, and custom design your artwork so you know you will love every detail!

By serving my clients fully, from our first phone consultation all the way through installing your wall art, I make sure that your story and your baby's story will be showcased and preserved for generations.

Session Fee starts at $550

The session fee is required to reserve your date.
Session fees are non refundable and do not include artwork or digital images.

"I enjoyed having Sabrina as my newborn photographer for this very special moment! She is such a delightful spirit and full of creative ideas and enthusiasm for her work. Her dedication to my inputs and themes was amazing. She handled my newborn with care and compassion and really took the time to capture the perfect photos."

"Sabrina knows what she is doing!! She is kind, she is focused, she is creative, and oh so talented. I loved getting to choose the decor, outfit, and all the other specifics about the shoot. She was so patient with the kids during the shoot and the final results were more than I expected. It was so easy!! The way she captured all of my son's expressions & his curiosity for the cake was perfection. She is so organized and professional that she can do this with her eyes closed."

"Sabrina is the best baby photographer that I have met. Not only that we received beautiful and cutest photos of my son, but also we created a precious memory of setting the unique scene. It was all possible with Sabrina's hard work and wonderful skills. Sabrina was willing to take all our considerations, communicated frequently, and the final design turned out to be exactly what we wanted. The album was chic and modern as we wanted and we think it would be the best keepsake for our son. "

"BOOK HER NOW!!!! She will NOT disappoint! She's so accommodating and truly works to get you exactly what you want! Sabrina prepares you very well for what to expect and the results couldn't have been more perfect! I can't say enough how stress free it is having a photographer come to YOU! Especially with a newborn but even still with a 1 year old, being in your own space truly makes the experience so enjoyable!"

"Sabrina is an amazing photographer. Her attention to detail and creative vision is unparalleled. The set design went seamlessly and we are very happy with the final result. It was so fun to see Sabrina work and capture these amazing moments. We also love that it was in the comfort of our own home. She also made us comfortable in regards to safety during the pandemic by wearing a mask and thoroughly sanitizing."

"Sabrina created an amazing backdrop, was patient with the kids and their schedule, is easy to work with, and the final results are amazing! I was very happy with the final results and the experience was great. I loved that she came to the house with everything."

Who Determines the 1st Birthday Cake Smash Ideas During the Photoshoot?

Babies are amazing. This is why parents love to create a magical moment with them and the family. However, others believe the photographer is the expert and should appropriately handle the direction of the session.

A great way to blend responsibilities and expertise is to allow the photographer to suggest things to the parents. This should help parents make their decision on what is best for the kid. Sabrina Baxter Photography offers this consultation to parents in order to provide fully customized shoots.

What matters is to get candid images of the baby. The family can join if they want.

Can I Get a Floral-Themed Cake Smash Session?

Several themes are appropriate for a baby's cake smash session. The idea is to surround the baby with items that make them happy. This can be their favorite cartoon, movie, etc. A floral-themed cake smash session is one of the most common ideas for babies, especially if they are girls. These combine with fairy tales to make baby girls look like princesses, just as their parents imagine. The costume and decorations for this theme include flowers, balloons, and soft colors such as pink. 

How Can I Get a Cake Smash Cake in Houston?

Getting a cake for this session is tricky. This is because the objective is not to get something to eat but for your kid to mess up. However, this doesn't mean you can use just a slice or one with a horrible taste. We want your kid to smile during the photo shoot.

The fully customized cake smash sessions with Sabrina Baxter are convenient for modern parents. Our service brings the studio to your home where your baby is most comfortable. We also handle birthday cakes, decor, and outfits. This saves you a lot of stress.

Make sure that you book a session two-to-three months in advance. We do a limited number of sessions each month and advice that you pre-book to enable you to do your photoshoot when you want.
