Isla’s Pink and Gold Spring Cake Smash

Happy Birthday Isla!

This was my first time meeting Gazen and Dick.

Isla’s first birthday theme was a peony, gold, and greenery theme so we ran with it and created an indoor spring set.

Isla was also a total champ during her cake smash photography session!

At first she went straight for the cake topper and delicately licked the icing off the stem. Then she realized she had an entire cake covered in frosting to go for!

You would never know this was her first time eating cake.

Mom and Dad were really eager to try out a cake from Tres Belle but she smashed the cake so much that there was nothing left to taste.

She might be my best smasher to date. Isla loved the bubbles in the smash session and kept trying to catch them.

We even had a chance to take a bit of video, so here’s a peak behind the scenes of Isla’s Cake Smash Session!

Curious about doing your own Cincinnati Cake Smash Session?

I do these sessions for Cincinnati families and kiddos all the time, and I love them! If you’re curious how it works or interested in planning your own, let’s chat about it 🙂



  • Corey - Such an awesome cake smash session! I adore your beautiful studio set and baby girl is adorable! ♥

  • Allison Anderson - Your cake smash set is beautiful with the greenery and flowers! I love how whimsical and fun it is! And obviously Isla did too.

  • Michelle - What an absolute cutie, she sure pulverised that cake. Fabulous cake smash photos!

  • Jennifer Rittenberry Photography - I adore this entire gallery! You provided such a beautiful backdrop for Isla’s First Birthday Cake Smash and think that is an excellent feature to look for in a Cake Smash Photographer. The setup is just as important as the talent of the photographer and you excel at both!
