Is your little one ready to turn one? Let’s capture that first taste of cake with a stylized cake smash session.
Sessions are 45 minutes long with full set designs. If you can dream it, I can make it. Set design is included in the package, but extensive set requests are subject to a design and sourcing fee.
My cake smash sessions start off with standard portraits. This session is allowed one outfit change, so this would be the time to get a few different shots in different outfit. I offer a few different outfits in my client closet for sessions for both boys and girls. Pictures with mom and dad or siblings can also be done at this time. After we’ve gotten the standard portraits out of the way we’ll release the beast and let your little one have at it with their cake. Some don’t know what to make of it, others shove their entire face in it. It’s really quite entertaining to watch.
If your session has time and you’d like to include it, I also have a vintage claw foot tub we can use for post-smash photos. Babies can wear their diapers, a swim diaper or a swimsuit. The tub is water tight. For in-home sessions we can fill it, if you’d like them to play in the water. For outdoor sessions we can also shoot with blown bubbles and avoid showing the inside of the tub to create the illusion of water.
Cake smash packages include a cake. The cake I provide is a white nearly naked frosted cake in vanilla. These cakes are 5″ in size and decorated to match your set. Normally I decorate these with flowers or small items from your set and a number one.
This package is allowed one theme/set design. I have done many different types of themes for portrait sessions and am a serial prop collector. Have a vision? Let’s make it happen.
Cake smashes can be at any location within 30 minutes of the Modesto Area. I have a few locations that I frequent for cake smashes that I can offer you during your booking or you can suggest a location. *
Immediate family members can be included in this session for an additional fee. Pets are not allowed at cake smashes.
Session fees are due upon booking and are non-refundable. Your session fee is your retainer and includes the time and talents of the photographer, session styling, location scouting and any props. Session fees do not include digitals, prints, wall art or albums. My digital collection fees are separate from my package fees, giving clients the freedom to choose as many or as few as they’d like. Digital collections are all high resolution and begin at $150. Digital collections are not combinable across multiple sessions. For detailed pricing information, please use the contact form below or email email@example.com.
When you contact me to book your session, we will go over the type of session you’ll be choosing, the theme/occasion, set design, clothing choices, location and more. I am more than happy to suggest clothing or color choices and I love designing sets. My job is to make your little one look good!
After your session, I head back to my office to get started on your proofs. Turnaround for my proofs is generally 1 week. Your proofs will be delivered to you via a secure proofing gallery where you can choose the images you want to keep. My sessions typically produce 40+ images for keepsake sessions, 60-80 for heirloom and legacy sessions. In order to give clients the freedom to choose as few or as many images as they’d like, my digitals are separate from my package fees. Digital collections, prints, wall art, albums and other products can be ordered during from your proofing gallery. Digital collections are not combinable across multiple sessions.
