Babies and Cake Smashes

Your child’s first year milestones are amazing and capturing these fleeting moments is something you will treasure for a lifetime. Life with a small child is busy, so I strive to create a low-stress, fun and relaxed atmosphere for Baby and Cake Smash sessions. Small children have a mind of their own and our session will be flexible, with a flow and pace that is comfortable for your child. Baby sessions usually take about an hour, while Cake Smash sessions tend to go a bit longer (1-1/2 hours or so), which allows time for a few outfit changes before we do the cake smash at the end. Sessions are offered in our Newborn/Child Studio, a cozy, separate structure on our property, offering the perfect setting for capturing these special images.

Outfits for these sessions can be chosen to really highlight your child’s personality. Bright colors photograph well, and hats, headbands and other unique accessories can add character and interest. Bare-foot babies are pleasing, so no need for fancy shoes, unless of course you have some you would like to bring. The cake part of the Cake Smash session is a blast and most children have a delightful time “interacting” with their cake. For this, slightly messy part of the session, girls look adorable in just a little tutu to cover the diaper (we have an assortment in studio) and possibly a headband or other accessory; and little boys look so cute in just their little jeans/pants/shorts. Plus, less clothing means less can get covered in cake! The studio offers a restroom and changing station for your comfort.

Call early to schedule your child’s session. Returning newborn clients will receive preferential booking. Soon after booking your session, you will receive additional information on how to prepare for your session.
