Cake Smash

Cake Smash photos are a very popular way to commemorate your baby growing into the unique toddler that they are! This photo session is for 1st birthday.  This is a very special opportunity to celebrate the growing and curiosity of your young child!  I even do Cake Smash for 2 year olds, or you can opt for 2 year birthday milestone photos without cake. 

Cake Smashes include: Full setup on solid seamless backdrop that matches desired theme, decorations, professional cake via local baker, 1 hour session, up to 2 outfit changes, post smash bubble bath for clean up.

The pricing for Cake Smash ($299+tax) Cake & set-up included (you can opt for other fun smash sessions such as pizza, watermelon, tacos, or other food in lieu of cake. Client must provide any alternate food items).  Food & latex allergy waiver signature required. 1 hour coverage. Up to 2 outfit changes. 1st birthday photos, before the cake smash and cleanup after is provided. Includes your choice of a Basic Mounted Print Collection of  (1) 11×14 (1) 10×13, (2) 8×10, (3) 5×7’s, (5) unmounted 4×6 prints OR 10 digitals images with print release.  Additional portrait sizes and products are available for purchase via the Standard Collection pricing menu, which can be obtained by contacting the photographer.  1st year Milestone sessions are (cake free) signature studio sessions with up to 2 outfits provided. It is recommended to book and complete your baby’s cake smash 2-3 weeks in advance of their birthday party if you prefer to use an image from your cake smash for your custom invitations. Complimentary web resolution watermarked digitals are included via download. You can opt to have your 10×13 edited and printed by our lab first to receive in time for display at baby’s birthday party.

Additional products & prints available, including birthday invitations, so it is recommended that you book and complete your session at least 2 weeks prior to your baby’s birthday party if you are interested in these items.

*Rather just go for 1st Year Milestone photos instead of Cake Smash?  You can book a 12 month themed Milestone session instead! Contact us about the theme you have in mind!*

Sessions are custom themed. We provide everything needed! Parents provide cake smash outfit, but we can provide a matching one to your preferred theme for a small additional fee. Cakes will be included and be provided by our photographer’s preferred bakery, when arranged. A consent is signed by the parent/legal guardian that there are no existing food allergies for the child.
