30th Birthday Cake Smash

My absolutely amazing client-turned-friend, Kristin, celebrated her 30th birthday this fall with a cake smash! Since she has been known in the KWP family for creating the most stunning styled shoots for her beautiful daughters, we knew she would bring her A-game for her own birthday shoot! Playing on the most beloved children’s birthday theme – the cake smash – she created a glamorous cake smash fit for a queen!

We started with her family in a field outside my studio so we could get some fun shots of everyone. Kristin bought these adorable gold balloons in the number 30. Sadly, the wind had other ideas and quickly wisked our poor little “3” away. Not one to get deterred, the shoot moved on without another incident! We were able to get some adorable shots inside on a vintage couch in her Louboutins. We really wanted to play with the idea of a little girl’s birthday cake smash, but with a more adult style and fashion-forward approach.
