Unicorns have been a popular theme in kid’s clothing and in sets for our studio, especially cake smashes.
As a Jacksonville, Florida based children’s photographer, I love photographing all the different themes that come my way. I recently had a really cute unicorn themed smash and I wanted to share it with you, along with ideas and tips for your own session or to use as a backdrop at your child’s birthday party.
I buy backdrops from all over the place, so I can’t remember exactly where I got this one from. But, here’s some suggestions and ideas for backdrops:
Rainbow Clouds backdrop on Etsy
We used a ONE sign made on Etsy by TinCakes at but if you wanted something even more elaborate, this might be an option. Super cute and layered.
Our cake was made by Sweets by Staci, here in Jacksonville. She will deliver the cake to the studio for you on the day of your session.
One of these cake toppers would be cute for your cake as well.
If you are doing something at home and need to make a simple store bought cake look like a unicorn, you could always pick up something like this.
A lot of parents like to buy a decoration to go around the table or high chair.
Here’s a pink tutu style one.
As for clothing choices.
We just used a simple rainbow tutu and a headpiece similar to this.
Tutus are always a fun choice for a first birthday session.
This is a SUPER cute outfit from Etsy‘s DabinDesigns.
This outfit is a little more subdued in colors, but is def. cute with the unicorn on it. Would match a lot of sets. Sold on Etsy by CoraandViolet .
This is all pink and super girly by DwellAndAbidePtyLtd .
Here’s a white onesie style with a gold ruffle butt and accessories.
And of course, Unicorn shoes!!!
