Birthdays are something that should be celebrated!
And, what better way than with a photo shoot?
For cake smashes, we will discuss colors and themes and I will customize a set-up for your baby’s smash, providing all the decorations.
I do ask parents to provide the cake for this due to liability reasons with the amount of allergies these days
but I am happy to provide you with baker recommendations in the local areas.
When should I book my baby’s session?
Please contact me at least a month ahead of time.
I can occasionally accommodate a last minute session, but typically I book up at least a month in advance.
What will happen during the session?
When you arrive, we will begin with pictures of your baby pre-cake,
I will take pictures of the set-up and cake, then we will add baby back in and let the fun begin!
How long will the session last?
Your session will last approximately 45-60 minutes.
Where will my session take place?
Cake smash sessions will take place in my studio.
When will my session take place?
Cake smash sessions should be scheduled when you baby is happiest!
That means, after a good nap and small snack (not too much because we want them to be a bit hungry).
Some babies are great car sleepers and can get their snooze on the way to the studio, if it is a long distance.
Typically most parents schedule these sessions after baby’s morning nap, usually around 11am, sometimes after their afternoon nap.
What kind of cake should I get?
Cakes should be 6-8″, vanilla because chocolate looks like dirt or poop, and have fluffy icing for easy smashing, not fondant.
Icing colors should be white or pastels as bright/dark colors tend to stain.
You can make your own or find a reputable baker. A local baker that I recommend is Sweet celebration.
What should my baby wear?
Most parents choose to purchase a special outfit for their baby’s first birthday.
Typically we use this outfit to take pictures of baby before the cake.
Then, for the cake smashing, some parents like baby to have to same outfit on,
some bring another outfit, and some parents just do pants, a diaper cover, or a tutu.
What will happen after the session?
After your session, I will start working on your gallery and put up a sneak peek on Facebook within 48 hours.
In approximately 2 weeks, I will contact you to set up a time to come in for your gallery ordering appointment.
This is when you will get to see all your beautiful images and make your purchases!
