Preparation for the cake-smashing photo session.
Please plan the time of the day when your baby is active. Please bring the toys that your kid loves. Please advise what music your kid likes or bring the music with you. You can connect your cell to our music center as well.
Not every baby reacts the way that you do expect for a photography session, even when there is a great colorful cake involved! The cakes are sweet and your kid might not be used to that. Most Cakes are covered in soft icing and some children just don’t like to get messy. Our advice is to try it out with a cupcake first and verify how your kid reacts to messy play and a bit of sweetness. They don’t normally dive into the cake as you might think and sometimes need a bit of direction from parents. We have no problem getting the shots that we need. We have a lot of experience but if the cake is not a hit the bathtub always so doesn’t worry! Please see below the summary of the questions and answers relevant to the cake smash photoshoot.
Frequently Asked Questions
1)What do we need to bring for the baby cake smash photoshoot? We do suggest bringing the following:
* One or Two Outfits for Family Photos
* One or Two Outfits for 1 Year part of the photo session
* The boy looks great in blue jeans paired with suspenders or a tie. A pair of leggings, a onesie, and a cute hat will also do the trick.
* For girls: ruffled bottoms, leggings, pearls, tutu and oneness, and a cute hat will also add value to the images.
* Cake smash shoots are fun but very messy! Please keep that in mind when planning potential outfits. Tutu, onesies, or jeans are ideal, but a simple diaper cover/cloth diaper (covering a disposable diaper) is also quite cute!

We do recommend a color-matching approach or color coordination. It doesn’t mean that all colors have to be the same. It is nice to get different colors with some pop-up color here or there. Please send us an e-mail with the images and we will call you back with our recommendations.
5) What is the best time of the day for a photo shoot with our little one?
Please schedule a time when your little one is active and happy. We can always find the time in our schedule to meet your expectations.
6) My kid is very active and moving all the time. How will you manage it during the photoshoot?
Lifestyle is our preferable type of photography. We will catch all gorgeous smiles when you interact with your kid. You will be standing close to the photographer and communicating with your kid. We do suggest inviting grandparents as well. They will help to create priceless family photos. Elina will be doing her best to get the kid attention.
7)When the cake smash photography session should be scheduled?
Please book the smash cake photo shoot a month before the birthday day.
8) How do you plan themes & colors?
We do have multiple backdrops in the studio and we can work together as a team to prepare the theme that is meeting your expectations. We understand that themes add value to the images, but our focus is rather on your baby than the decorations. We add decorations to get the kid’s attention and make him play in a comfortable environment. Our team is consistently adding new backdrops to the studio. We do paint the backdrops and all our backdrops are custom-made based on our customer’s opinions.
9) How do we have to prepare our kids for the photoshoot?
This is a great question. We suggest talking to the kid and explaining what we will be doing. You can try to give him a test small part of the cake, so the kid will enjoy the test and get more comfortable during the real photoshoot. You are welcome to visit
10) Do you provide the cake?
Parents are to supply the cake, cupcake or other food products to be used in the photoshoot, due to liability reasons. Simple vanilla or chocolate cake, with buttercream frosting, makes for messy and fun pictures! Fondant cakes are very beautiful on their own but aren’t the best fit for a cake smash. It may be best to leave the fondant cake for the birthday party! Please feel free to contact us, and we can suggest a few cost-effective places! Please make sure that you are taking into account the allergic restrictions that some kids have.
