Hey there, cake smash enthusiasts or should we say Steak Smash enthusiasts! Today, we’re diving into a unique and mouth-watering twist on the traditional first birthday photoshoot – Luca’s Steak Smash. Yes, you read that right – steak! Because who says smashing cakes is the only way to celebrate turning one?
We love getting creative with our cake smash and steak smash setups, and Luca’s session was no exception. Picture this: a charming country-themed backdrop adorned with rustic hay bales, cowboy boots, a whip, and, of course, a glorious tomahawk steak. Luca’s parents wanted something different, something that truly reflected their little one’s personality. There are so many options for backdrops, it’s insane!
The session kicked off with the usual cake smash excitement, with a beautiful semi naked cake from Cakes by Red. Luca wasn’t too interested in the sweet treat. Enter the star of the show – the tomahawk steak. As soon as that juicy piece of meat was presented, his eyes lit up, and it began. He bit, chewed, and savored every moment until there was nothing but a clean plate left.
Our team believes in breaking away from conventions and creating moments that truly resonate with the individuality of each child. Luca’s Smash proves that a first birthday photoshoot doesn’t have to be just cake. It’s about capturing authentic expressions, genuine joy, and the essence of the little one’s character.
The country-themed backdrop added a rustic charm to the session, providing the perfect setting for Luca’s steak adventure. Hay bales and cowboy boots set the stage for a photoshoot that felt like a stroll through a countryside dream. The whip added a playful touch, reflecting the spirited energy of a one-year-old ready to conquer the world – or at least a steak.

Luca’s Steak Smash was a testament to this approach, showcasing that first birthday photos can be as diverse and vibrant as the children we photograph.
Luca wasn’t done just yet, in fact he was just beginning… We set up a studio mini bathtub, and he enjoyed a delightful splash, washing away the remnants of his steak adventure. The joy on his face as he played in the water added another layer to this unforgettable photoshoot.
