Should You Do Cake Smash Photos Before or After Birthday?

As your go-to luxury cake smash photographer, I’m here to spill the beans on the age-old dilemma: Should you schedule those adorable cake smash photoshoots before or after your little one’s big day? I get it – you want those perfect shots to cherish forever and perhaps even showcase at the birthday party. Well, I’ve got the scoop on why getting messy before the birthday party might just be the icing on the cake.

Pre-Birthday Cake Smash

Opting for a cake smash before the birthday can set the stage for an epic celebration. These photos become a sneak peek into the joy and excitement that will unfold on the big day. Incorporating these beautiful pictures into the birthday invitations or using them to create a stunning slideshow at the party is amazing. It’s like giving your guests a taste of the sweetness, adding extra fun to the celebration.

Post-Birthday Cake Smash

Now, let’s talk about the flip side. Is it really such a big deal to have the cake smash photoshoot after the birthday festivities? Not at all! In fact, it comes with its own set of perks. The cake smash becomes an extension of the celebration, keeping the festive spirit alive a little longer.

Moreover, having the cake smash after the birthday isn’t as time-sensitive. There’s no rush to get those perfect shots before the big day, giving us the freedom to plan and execute the photoshoot with a relaxed and creative approach. Plus, who says you can’t use these belatedly captured moments to create a memorable thank-you card for guests, extending the joy beyond the event itself?

Timeless Memories

Let’s face it – does it really matter if the cake smash photos were taken before or after the first birthday? Definitely not! These timeless memories will continue to bring smiles to your faces regardless of when they were captured. Fast forward a few years, and no one will be the wiser about the chronological order. What matters is the joy and the genuine expressions that adorn the faces of your little ones.

In the future, when you flip through the photo album, the emphasis won’t be on the sequence of events but on the heartwarming moments frozen in time. Each picture tells a story of giggles, messy hands, and a sweet tooth indulgence. So, whether it’s a pre-birthday or a post-birthday cake smash, what truly matters is the everlasting charm encapsulated in those cake smash photos.
