Sailing, Sailing … Smash!

Gavin’s Sailing Themed 1st Birthday Cake Smash

Happy New Year! I’m excited to share one of my NEW cake smash themes for 2018! Gavin, who I’ve had the pleasure of capturing since he was a newborn, had a blast at his sailing themed 1st birthday cake smash. The fabulous Kimmy of Kimmy’s Cakes nailed this nautical cake — how perfect are those blue ombré fondant waves and the fun red rope around the bottom? The adorable and delicious cake paired perfectly with the sweet sail topper and banner, and blue glass spheres and balloons. We added in some distressed wooden elements for a rustic touch, and the painterly backdrop really tied it all together.


Gavin looked so handsome in his anchor bowtie and diaper cover. He got into the action with both his hands AND his feet! Isn’t it the cutest when babies grab their feet?!


I’m also in love with the shot of him with his hands in the air — he’s so proud of how big and tall he’s gotten! Happy birthday, sweet boy!


Schedule your baby’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash with Jacqueline Belle Fleur!

1st Birthday Cake Smash sessions take place in my Cranford, NJ studio and include the following:

  • the session fee (time and talent to capture, carefully select and fully edit 40-50 final images)
  • the base digital package — The Petal Collection (all hi-res digital files on a USB drive)
  • a beautiful, personalized cake from Kimmy’s Cakes
  • carefully and personally selected props such as handmade swags, balloons and paper flowers to match your theme

I know how busy parents are, so I do all the errand-running, crafting and styling for you. You just bring the baby in his or her adorable outfit!

In addition to the sailing theme featured in this post, I’m also excited to offer the following in 2018, many of which work well for both boys and girls: airplanes, hot air balloons, carnival, unicorns, “Down on the Farm,” Bohemian flowers, Bohemian “Wild One” with arrows, “Where the Wild Things Are,” music, Cookie Monster, Mickey Mouse, lavender fields, carousel, Paris, ballerinas, blue stars, angel and clouds, and woodland animals. You can even just pick a color scheme, and we’ll roll with that!

Stay tuned for an upcoming post that will feature a compilation of many of my new backdrops! As always, feel free to email me at
