Orlando and Central Florida Cake Smash Session | FAQs

You don’t realize just how fast one year can go by until you have a baby. The day your little one is born will be forever captured in your memory and then you blink and three months have gone by and then before you know it you have a first birthday celebration to plan!

If you live in the Orlando area and you are looking for a newborn or a photographer to capture your baby’s first birthday contact me! I would love to chat with you about what you are looking for and to create your dream newborn session or your dream cake smash session. I only do a limited amount of sessions per month, booking early is recommended!

What is the pricing for your Cake Smash Session?

You can find all the collection details and pricing HERE.

When is the best time to schedule a Cake Smash session?

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, and those sessions are scheduled at 10am only.

How many set ups does the session include?

We normally do 2 set ups. One focusing on the child alone and the cake smash at the end.

What do I need to bring to my Cake Smash session?

You can bring props/ balloons, a towel/wipes, snacks such as puffs and water for your child.

Do you set up themes for the cake smash portion?

For the cake smash portion of the session, I do not focus on particular themes (however parents can bring props or anything that they would like to incorporate). I focus on the moment and on the child having a fun time with the cake, their expressions and details. I always use a cake stand, and a matching banner based on the color of the cake.

Is the cake included?

Yes, I do provide the cake 🙂

Do you include parent or sibling shots?

At this time, cake smash sessions only focuses on the baby. Parents and siblings are not included (only for an additional fee of $50)

Do I need to bring any special outfits for my child?

Yes, you will have to bring the outfits (one for the first part of the session and one for the cake smash part)

Any tips on how to prepare my child for their Cake Smash Session?

It is a good idea to do a trial run at home a few days before with a cupcake with frosting. Some kids have never had sweets before, or have a hard time feeling dirty or messy. Giving them a chance to experience these sensations for the first time at home can make it easier on the day of the session.

My child has a small scratch/bruise or their face, is that ok?

I know kids at this age are on the move! Lots of falling and tripping. If you child has a small mark on their face, do not worry as I am able to touch it up in post.

What if my child is sick?

A healthy child is 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.
