Celebrate your little one’s first birthday with a cake smash! The idea is to let them loose on the cake and capture them having fun eating and digging into it! After the cake smash, a bubble bath will help them get clean and adds to the fun, making for more cute photos. If you prefer not to do bath photos, you may substitute a different set instead.
Note:If you are planning to use these photos as invites for a birthday party, I would suggest doing the cake smash about 4-6 weeks before the birthday party to allow time for me to edit the photos and to give yourself time to create/send out the invites. If you don’t need the photos for a party, the session can be done closer to their 12 month birthday if you prefer.
*All my packages currently include high res digital files. When comparing photographers and prices, please note whether the packages include digital files, or session time and talent only, since sometimes photographers charge this separately. My current prices do include both session time and digital files.*

After the session, the full set of photos can take approximately 3-5 weeks to process depending on how busy things get. If you need the full set of photos by a certain date, please allow enough time when booking. 2 sneak peeks can be provided within approximately a week or 2 (if there is a specific number you need before the full set is ready – e.g. for an event or announcements, let me know and we can discuss).

To keep things simple and allow the session to run as smoothly and efficiently as possible, please do not bring extra people to the session unless you want them included in some of the photos. There is an extra fee of $45 per person who attends the session other than the baby’s parents and siblings.
