How to Plan and Prepare for Your Baby's Cake Smash Session Like a BOSS! | Tips from a Jacksonville Milestone Photographer
- Cake Smash,
They are 1! Oh my gosh where has the time gone? Super bittersweet moment that we wish could last just a little longer. Our First Birthday/Cake Smash sessions are perfect for catching all of their emotions going into 1. They grown and learned so much in just 12 short months. Let's showcase that!
Our full-service boutique studio offers access to an extensive prop collection, smash wardrobe options for boys and girls ranging from 12 to 18 months, assorted accessories, themed decorations and is fully accredited by the Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International (APNPI) in Newborn & Baby safety. Allow T.R.P. to capture their biggest milestone yet. Time for a celebration!
Sometimes our little ones are introduced to porducts and ingredients that dont sit too well with their tummies. This is why we ask ahead of time for any allergies. IF BABY HAS ALLERGIES, please make sure to let us know. In this instance, parents will provide the cake or bakery they wish the studio to use.
When you arrive, the agreed upon themed session will be totally set up and ready for your baby. Though we will be ready to go, your little one may need time to get used to me (a stranger). I take this time to show your little one I am no threat to them with your help, of course. Once we see your little one is warming up is when we spring into action. Their attention spans are short so we need to use all of our time wisely.
Once we have gotten all the smiles and/or laughs, it is time for the goods. I bring out the cake that stays wrapped completley until its time. We capture the action of the smash. Some babies dive head-first and some dont want to get dirty at all. Check out our blog post for more of an experience.
This is where our little ones really come alive and its so much fun to watch. They get to splashing and making a mess all while loosening the icing and cake they've smeered all over. It's a fun way to get clean. Once fully clean, we wrap them in our clean, plush studio towels to make sure they are warm and get dry.
