Award- Winning first birthday Photographer for the Philadelphia area with portrait studios on the main line & bucks county

Cake Smash

Session Fee: $125

We believe everyone should eat cake, always. But it's especially cute when you can do it with your fingers and toes. Our cake smash sessions always include the whole family with the cake smash at the end!

You also deserve to work with experts because experts make everything easier. We have a kid-led philosophy. We let the littles set the pace. That's because we understand some kids take a while to warm up, while others are ready to go but fade quickly. 

or smash it, either way

The cake should be white on white (chocolate looks like poo)

Never book during nap time, it never ends well

Do bring a diaper cover and wash cloth!

Special needs, that's cool just let us know so we can make the session as easy as possible


Expectations for our
Cake Smash session

Digitals + product sold separately - CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS

Our cake smash sessions can last anywhere from 20 to 45 min and you'll get to see roughly 50 images. We have time to capture everyone together, individuals, siblings and then dig into the cake! You provide the cake but we make recommendations below!

We're always rocking multiple backgrounds - a simple ivory, something trending within the interior design world, an ethereal back lit look, whitewashed brick & a seasonal look. No need to choose, we'll use several during the session.

Ivory Tree owner Lara leads an incredibly warm & thoughtful staff. The curated experience is perfect for any situation and the pictures really do speak for themselves. We are excited to use their services each year as we watch our girls grow up as they have both been photographed in infancy / toddler years. Their studio is clean, comfortable and very welcoming. Highly recommend!!!
