The cake should be small with whip cream frosting and a light color cake inside. It does not need to be anything fancy, most local bakeries should be able to make something simple. If you prefer, you are also able to bring a homemade cake. Please leave the cake at room temperature about an hour before the session to ensure the frosting is nice and soft.
I try not focus on particular themes because it is not my style, I'm much more of a minimalist. I focus on the moment and on the child having a fun time with the cake, their expressions and details. I always use either a white or grey backdrop, cake stand, and a matching banner based on the color of the cake. You provide the outfit(s).
It is best to schedule your child’s cake smash session about a month ahead of time. I do tend to book up in advance. Cake Smash sessions are scheduled during the week, in the morning, based on the best time around their nap. I do offer weekend dates on a limited basis, for an additional fee.
A HEALTHY CHILD = A HAPPY CHILD!
Please let me know within 24hrs of your session if your child is sick, has a runny nose, or cough, so we can reschedule your session. Since I work very closely with newborns or other children, I need to be extra diligent in protecting these precious little beings. It is to my discretion to reschedule the session if the child appears to be sick at the time of the session.
Thank you for keeping me and my family healthy too!
