Woodland themes are all the rage right now and here is another adorably styled Woodland Cake Smash Session we received from Danielle of CJ2 Photography. This session is full of inspiration as well as resources for styling your next woodland theme cake smash or birthday party.

What we Love:

Danielle:

I just loved this cake smash. The inspiration was rustic, woodland, with a touch of color. The cake stand, miniature pinecones & acorns, tree, artificial succulents, ONE sign, and gold antlers were all from Hobby Lobby. The small lantern from IKEA. Wooden “E” from a home decor store (either Home Goods or Marshalls) I can’t remember. The tent was handmade by myself, with wood and dowels from Lowe’s and bird fabric from Joann’s. I also made the banner and cake topper. Mom provided the stuffed animals (they belong to her son)  and made the naked cake to complete the set up.

Lisa & Rachel: As always, we LOVE when photographers submit a session and share all of their wonderful resources with us as well. It always makes for a stronger post and richer content for our readers so we loved when we received this Woodland themed treasure trove from Danielle! The styling is adorable and on point! We love the gold accents, the handmade tent, the natural elements and that naked cake which is just perfect for a woodland cake smash session! Little Zeke is adorable as well. Danielle, you did a great job styling and photographing this session and we thank you for sharing it with us!

Gear:

This session was shot on a Nikon d750 with a 35mm 1.8 lens with studio lighting and bone seamless paper.
