your cake smash session with tiny loves photography

 

Cake smash sessions take place in my private commercial studio in Northern Mesa. All Cake smash sets are custom designed around your theme or choice of colors. Outfits, the custom designed set, the outfit, headbands, and accessories are all included in the cake smash package. Due to allergy liabilities I do not include the cake.

The Plan

 

If you have a vision for what you want the cake smash session to look like, I want to help you create your vision. Often times sending me a photo example of your theme is the easiest way to get the ball rolling. From here I will ask you a few questions so that I can start planning for your child's cake smash session. I provide all props, custom design each set, provide an extensive studio wardrobe collection, headbands,and the cake stand. IF YOU HAVE PROPS FOR A CUSTOM THEME (LIKE DAD'S GUITAR FOR A COOL ROCK AND ROLL THEME) ID LOVE TO INCLUDE PERSONAL ITEMS TOO! I do NOT provide the cake due to allergy liabilities.

A CAKE SMASH SESSION CAN GO TWO WAYS, AND I'M PREPARED TO PHOTOGRAPH EITHER! SOME ONE YEAR OLDS LOVE CAKE AND WILL GO TO TOWN EATING THE CAKE AND THEY JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH. OTHER ONE YEAR OLDS ARE SCARED OF THE CAKE, THEY WILL CRY AND WON’T OR EVEN TOUCH THE CAKE. I LIKE PARENTS TO BE PREPARED FOR BOTH POSSIBILITIES. WHEN BABY DOESN'T LOVE, OR SMASH THE CAKE I UNDERSTAND THIS CAN BE DIFFICULT WHEN YOU WANTED THE CUTE, MESSY AND FUNNY CAKE SMASH PICTURES. CHILDREN HAVE A MIND OF THEIR OWN AND WE WILL JUST GO WITH THE FLOW

 

 

. I WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH SOME TIPS THAT WILL HELP YOU PREPARE YOUR CHILD TO NOT BE SCARED OF THE CAKE. ALTHOUGH THIS WORKS FOR SOME CHILDREN IT ISN’T GUARANTEED TO WORK FOR ALL CHILDREN AS EACH CHILD HAS THEIR OWN PERSONALITY. WHATEVER THE OUTCOME, KNOW THAT THIS SESSION IS DEFINITELY GOING TO BE ONE TO CHERISH AS THEY ONLY TURN ONE ONCE. TO AVOID THE POSSIBILITY OF THE CAKE BEING A "SCARY" NEW EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR LITTLE ONE, I RECOMMEND LETTING YOUR CHILD PLAY WITH A CUPCAKE A FEW DAYS BEFORE THE SESSION SO THEY CAN GET USE TO DIGGING IN THE CAKE, THE SWEET TASTE, AND GET USED TO THE FEELING OF FROSTING ON THEIR FINGERS. IN THE EVENT YOUR CHILD DOESN'T LIKE THE CAKE ONE BIT A HUGE SESSION SAVER HAS BEEN BABY'S FAVORITE SNACK (BABY PUFFS, CHEERIOS ETC) POKED INTO THE BACK OF THE CAKE. OFTEN TIMES IT ENCOURAGES BABY TO PICK THE SNACK OFF THE CAKE AND GIVES THE APPEARANCE OF YOUR CHILD ACTUALLY LIKING THE CAKE, SO PLEASE BRING A BIT OF THEIR FAVORITE SNACK. SOME ONE YEAR OLDS GET SCARED BECAUSE THEY ARE AT A NEW LOCATION THAT THEY ARE UNFAMILIAR WITH, OR AREN'T USED TO NEW FACES. BRINGING SOMETHING FROM HOME MAY HELP THEM FEEL COMFORTABLE SUCH AS A FAVORITE TOY, THEIR FAVORITE SONG PLATING, ETC CAN HELP MALE YOUR LITTLE ONE FEEL MORE RELAXED. IF YOU DO SOMETHING, OR SING OR SAY SOMETHING THAT GETS THEM LAUGHING DON'T HESITATE TO LET M KNOW AT THE SESSION.

 

EACH LITTLE PERSON IS SO UNIQUE SO ANYTHING THAT IS HAPPINESS TO THEM CAN BE HELPFUL FOR ME TO KNOW AND FOR YOU TO THINK ABOUT A BIT AHEAD OF SESSION DAY. I ALSO RECOMMEND BRINGING BABY A DRINK TO HAVE WITH THEIR CAKE. LASTLY, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD IS WELL RESTED, IF THEY SKIP THEIR NAP THEY CAN BECOME CRANKY AND IRRITATED. EVEN IF THEY LIKE THE CAKE THEY CAN REFUSE TO EAT IT FROM BEING OVERLY TIRED. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT IS YOUR CHILD'S HAPPIEST TIME OF DAY IS WHEN PLANNING YOUR SESSION TIME WITH ME. IN THE EVENT YOUR LITTLE ONE ISN'T FEELING WELL OR IS JUST HAVING AN AWFUL DAY I AM VERY FLEXIBLE WHEN A SESSION NEEDS TO BE SCHEDULED.

 

PREPARE FOR YOUR CHILD"S CAKE SMASH

 

TO AVOID THE POSSIBILITY OF THE CAKE BEING A "SCARY" NEW EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR LITTLE ONE, I RECOMMEND LETTING YOUR CHILD PLAY WITH A CUPCAKE. yogurt, or some whip cream A FEW DAYS BEFORE THE SESSION SO THEY CAN GET USE TO DIGGING IN THE CAKE, THE SWEET TASTE, AND GET USED TO THE FEELING OF FROSTING ON THEIR FINGERS. IN THE EVENT YOUR CHILD DOESN'T LIKE THE CAKE ONE BIT A HUGE SESSION SAVER HAS BEEN BABY'S FAVORITE SNACK (BABY PUFFS, CHEERIOS ETC) POKED INTO THE BACK OF THE CAKE. OFTEN TIMES IT ENCOURAGES BABY TO PICK THE SNACK OFF THE CAKE AND GIVES THE APPEARANCE OF YOUR CHILD ACTUALLY LIKING THE CAKE, SO PLEASE BRING A BIT OF THEIR FAVORITE SNACK.

What is a "Splash"

 

This is often most baby's favorite part of the 1 year session! After the cake smash I will fill this adorable tub with warm water and a few bubbles. This helps clean the cake off baby and just makes for the CUTEST images. If your little one doesn't love water or you don't want a bubble bath you can swap this portion of the session out for a second portrait set before the cake smash.
