How to prepare for your Cake Smash Photo Session. . .
A cake smash photo session is a fun, joyful way to commemorate the milestone of your little one’s first birthday. Capture your baby’s surprise, curiosity and delight as they tear into their first taste of sugar. A cake smash is a great way to express your baby’s unique personality in a relaxed and carefree way.
What to expect?
We start with some pre-smash portraits being taken of your child, capturing their many expressions. We then introduce the cake. You can choose a cake from our A La Carte price list or you can bring your own. Please see Pricing for cakes in the Price Guide page. If your child has any allergies we recommend you bring in your own cake.
When to schedule?
You can book as far in advance as you like, this ensures you get a slot that suits you best. Most of my clients book before their baby's birthday as images from their session are used to display at their baby's birthday party and used for Thank you Cards. We also have a selection of thank you cards you can purchase from to print yourself. This can be included with the rest of your purchased digital files.
What to bring?
Please bring a change of clothes for the both of you, as the icing can quite literally get everywhere. A few of your child’s favourite toys may also be a good idea too for comforting and distracting them at the beginning of the session.
Also bring plenty of wipes for afterwards if you are not having the Cake Smash & Splash session that includes the bubble bath afterwards.
You can choose to bring your own personalised bunting with your childs name on too if you wish.
What to wear?
It’s up to you and can be as casual or dressy as you like. Most people choose to bring along a couple of outfits, usually one for the ‘pre-cake’ portraits and the other for the “Cake Smash” itself. I love bare bellies on little ones for the “cake smash” teamed with tutus, a onesie or jeans. Feel free to dress and accessorize your child however you please. If your looking for something special and unique a great place to try is Esty and Facebook.
Please remember that their clothing will end up covered in icing so don’t dress them in something that you would be upset if it got ruined.
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to call or email me and I will be happy to help you in anyway to make sure that your child’s Cake Smash photos are something that you’ll cherish forever.
