Birthday Sessions can be with or without a Smash Cake. However, first birthday sessions with a smash cake are so much fun!
We will discuss ideas/themes/colors before your session. I always ask for pictures of any outfits your little one will be wearing during the session so I can coordinate the perfect settings. I always begin the session with 10-15 minutes of warm up time if needed. Allowing your little one time to get comfortable with the studio, the lights, and most importantly, me. I will have a few sets all ready to go so I am not wasting time putting together sets during your session.
If baby is standing we will definitely try our best to get a few photos of him/her standing. If your little one is already walking, well then... you might get a workout. Once they start walking, they don't like to stand still for very long, and this is where you come in as the helper. Wear something comfortable. If you are not physically able to pick baby up, or grab baby quickly if he/she is already walking, please bring along someone that can help assist.
If you are doing a Smash Cake session, please bring plenty of baby wipes.
I will provide backdrop, and props, however if you are requesting a very specific theme, we will discuss who will provide each piece.
I ask that my clients provide the cake, and sometimes a few items that they may already have, however, I try to provide the complete smash cake set up whenever possible.
