Cake Smash Sessions
What's more fun than watching our kids smash into a custom-made cake???
Celebrate your children's milestone with a Cake Smash session! Cake smash sessions are 45 minutes of fun for the whole family as I capture your baby in multiple outfits and set ups, ultimately ending in their chance to dig into a custom-made cake in front of the camera. Your cake smash session includes a custom design set up (you tell me what colors or themes you want) and hand designed cake by our local baker. Contact me and book your session today!
Custom Cake Design
Cakes are provided by our local baker and are included in your session fee. Previous clients have requested everything from their baby's favorite cartoon character to dad's college or sports team. Be creative, and contact me to discuss specific themes and colors you want included in your session! Cake Smash sessions should be booked at least three weeks in advance to give our cake maker time to craft the perfect cake. If your baby has any type of food allergy we do ask that you bringing your own cake as a safety precaution.
Cake Smash Frequently Asked Questions
* Do I get to keep the cake after the smash?
Heck Yea! The cake is yours to keep after the session. In the rare occasion that baby doesn't actually want to eat the cake, and Dad (or Mom) wants to take it home for desert later, I'll provide you a box to carry the cake out.
*Is there some place to clean up after the cake smash?
Yes. I provide wipes and a towel for everyone but everyone has access to a restroom or sink if needed.
*How long is a cake smash session?
Most cake smashes last 45 minutes.
* Why is this session only 45 minutes?
Based on lots of experience babies lose interest quickly. They will only take being picked up and put back in a spot for about 45 minutes
*Is the cake included?
Yes, cakes are included in your session fee. You can however, provide your own cake, you will receive a discount if you provide your own cake.
*Do I need to bring anything for the smash?
I ask that parents bring a sippy cup or bottle that baby can drink in between bites. The sweetness & frosting can make baby thirsty. I also suggest bringing cheerios or puff snacks just in case baby is not interested in the cake, these snacks can be put in the cake to achieve the shot of baby digging in.
*Can I bring outfits changes?
Absolutely! Most clients will have 2 outfits they want to change their baby in before doing the cake smash. The actual cake smash can be done in an outfit of your choosing or just a simple diaper cover....it's all up to you.
*Are family shots included in a cake smash session?
If we do this portion is quick, and takes place at the beginning of a session. It is typically done on a solid colored backdrop from the waist up. At this age interest wears out fast! When we get to the cake smash portion, its just for baby by them self.
*How far in advance should I book a session?
Sessions should be booked at least 4 weeks in advance to allow time for our baker to plan and prepare the cake. If you are on a shorter timeline please let me know so I can work it out with our cake maker. Contact me to book your cake smash session!
*Anything else we should know?
Mom & Dad or whoever will be baby wrangler should bring an extra change of clothes. Cake smashes are fun but can get messy!
