cake smash sessions

Your baby hit HUGE milestones, growing and learning so much in just one short year. They deserve some cake for all the hard work! I suggest booking your cake smash session at least 5 months before you want your session to take place.

 

This session can be done indoors at the client's home, or outdoors (weather permitting).

 

Simple cake smash

Just like is sounds, it’s nice and simple with baby being the main focus. We will discuss details together before booking to ensure we are on the same page and all expectations can be met. I will custom design a simple set on a white backdrop for your baby's cake smash in the theme or color scheme of your choice with balloons.

 

How is all goes down

The first few shots we get will be portraits of your baby dressed in a cute outfit for a couple traditional first birthday portraits. We can include a family shot as well.

After that, I'll capture your baby enjoying a yummy and messy cake.

Fact: Not all babies love cake. I know- right?!

 

Be prepared that the baby may not want to touch the cake. It's OKAY!

I am confident we will still get some great shots of your baby!

 

Some babies are actually afraid of the cake, others don't like the texture of it, or the taste. I'll send you a few tips to help you prepare your baby for his cake smash session, but most importantly, remember the baby is just one year old, and is often shy of exploring a new texture, shape or taste. Especially when surrounded by adults making funny noises and clapping. So, take away the anxiety and be ready to embrace whatever happens!

Cake Smash Session FAQ:

 

 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY SESSION?

A lot of mess and some really cute images!

 

WHEN WILL MY SESSION TAKE PLACE?

These sessions are held during the week, after the baby's morning or afternoon nap when they are well rested and happy.

 

DO YOU PROVIDE THE CAKE FOR SMASHING?

Due to possible allergies, I do not provide the cake for your Cake Smash Session, but I can recommend local bakers and the right cake size.

 

HOW MUCH DO YOU PROVIDE FOR THE SETUP?

Balloons are always included in your session, as well as ONE letters, cake stands, greenery/flowers, fairly lights and baby chair. Personalized details (banner with name and birthday party theme) can be added when provided by the client.

Check out below the difference between simple sets and themed sets (which are a collaboration of props between photographer and client)

 

WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR?

For the portrait portion of the session, I suggest a casual outfit that suits the theme of your session as the portraits will be taken within your set. I think bare feet look great with most outfits. For the smash, jeans with no shirt and suspenders for the boys, or just a diaper cover always look adorable. Dresses or tutus for girls.
