Cake Smash ~ What to Expect
What to Expect
Why Cake Smash Sessions?
Turning 1 years old is a big milestone and who wouldn’t want to celebrate it with a beautiful setup, gorgeous outfit and some yummy cake!
When to book?
Cake smash pictures are typically used for birthday card invitations and to display at the party. In order to have enough time to prepare a set, take the photos, edit them, return a viewing gallery and have your images / prints delivered, I recommend doing this session prior to their actual birthday-roughly (1 month prior). If you just want to celebrate your baby turning one, then anytime around the 1 year mark is fine!
How long will the session take?
I schedule 1 hour for these sessions however it may take slightly longer if baby takes longer to warm up to me.
Please ensure you are at my studio 10 minutes prior to your session time.
As part of your package, a smash cake is supplied. The cake is decorated to match your desired colour scheme and theme.
Allergies, Aversions and Options?
A smash cake is supplied for your session. If your baby has any known food allergies, please let me know! If you are not sure if your baby will have an allergy to any ingredients used to make a cake, I recommend trying a cupcake at home first. If your baby has an allergy or aversion, there are a few other option we can do in place of a cake smash.
How to choose your set?
I have several pre-styled cake smash sets available in my studio but I also love to design new custom sets. (Please give me at least a month advance notice to design and make sure I can source all your props.) All you need to do is think about what colors you like and/or what theme.
How to choose an outfit?
My session packages include outfit use for 1st Birthday Cake Smash Sessions. Should there be a specific outfit you would like to use, I have a list of excellent, trusted vendors that can assist with a request, for your own account. All Baby/ Toddler Packages include outfit use for the session (Limited up to 1 years of age). I have a range of outfits in studio for you to choose from however if you prefer to utilise your own, please let me know ahead of time.
When will I get my final images?
A sneak peek will be loaded onto social media (Facebook & Instagram) within 1 –3 working days after your session. Edits will then take between 2 –4 weeks to complete. An online proof gallery will be sent to you once completed and on here you will be able to choose your favourite images from the session.
