Cake smash photography session includes 2 outfit changes and set ups, a customized set up to your theme or color preferences, and 30 final images with the print release for $495.

The cake is not provided.

Check out backdrop options here, customized requests are welcome as well. Need some inspiration for a theme idea, here is a list I have complied of 50+ theme ideas for cake smash photography sessions. Or see some final set ups I have put together on this Pinterest Board.

What to bring…

2-3 outfits, or use outfits from Kendall’s multiple options at the studio!

The cake! I strongly suggest purchasing the cake from a reputable baker you trust. Or make your own with this very simple, safe for babies bellies cake mix from a local mom!

A towel, we will do a quick bath at the end for clean up / more cute photos. Most babies love bath time and we get great smiles during this!

What to expect…

We will start off with the non-cake set up prior to digging into the cake. The first set up can be family portraits or a set up of just baby, weather permitting we can go outside. And then it will be time for cake! Some babies dig right in, some are more dainty with it, and some babies won’t even go by the cake. It might be messy so mom & dad should be prepared to get cake on their clothes as well. Your baby will likely crawl (or walk) off set multiple times, but that’s okay. I capture the chaos, that is the fun of it!

It is always good to do a trail run at home a few days before the session with a cupcake, especially if your little one hasn’t had cake before. Often during the session we have to break a piece off for baby to get a first taste or mush their hands into it to get them started. After about 10 minutes of smashing we will get baby into a little tub for some splashing pictures and then clean up. Once the session is done I will professionally edit the finals and get them sent to you via an online gallery within 2 weeks of your session. From the gallery you are able to download the full resolution images and the print release or purchase professional quality prints.
