Babies and Cake Smashes
Pick a few of your favorite outfits that you feel show the personality of your little one. Bright colors photograph well, and hats, headbands and other accessories can add a whimsical touch. 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 so much fun 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 (we have an assortment in studio) and possibly a headband, and little boys are so cute in just their little jeans/pants/shorts. Plus, less clothing means less to get covered in cake.

After comfort, the thing to think about is color. Colors in portraits help set the tone, create a feeling of cohesiveness among subjects and of course express personality. Some clients go for a look where everyone is wearing the same color (maybe jeans with a solid colored shirt). This can work well, creating a more formal, tied together look. Other clients create a more casual look by selecting a color palette that includes 2-3 coordinating colors and then choosing clothing items within those shades, using mostly solids with maybe an accent pattern thrown in.
