Cake Smash Sessions

Years from now, when your son towers over you, or your daughter raids your closet, your keepsake photos will remind you of those precious days when they were still little enough for you to carry in your arms. Here are some tips to help your session go smoothly.

Timing of the Session

Toddlers are very moody and they can have strong stranger-danger. Coming to a strange studio and trying a cake for the first time can be overwhelming to these little ones. I will only schedule this session in the early morning or right after a morning nap and will not schedule these for any start time later than

Get the Cake Before your Session Date

Pick up your cake the day before your session and if you have had it in the fridge, take it out a few hours before you leave so it is not cold.

I recommend these bakers: Cakes By Emily K and Rashmi's Bakery or you can go to Sobeys/Loblaws/Metro and ask them to icing a cake to your colours. I recommend 4' or 6" no bigger than 8" and vanilla.

Little Outfits for your Toddler to Wear

AI have some outfits your baby can wear if you like or if you don't want to get your outfit covered in icing. You can see them here

Clothing and What to Bring

•We will do family photos first and then some of your little one on a more neutral backdrop. Them the cake, then the bath clean up. Please come dressed and ready for some photos.

• You can change your little one 1 or 2 times and keep in mind the fuss and how babies generally don't like getting changed. Less is better.

• Bring some little snacks they are familiar with (puffs or cheerios, for example) as we will hide them on the cake if they don't like to eat the cake. Sometimes they will eat these familiar snacks and it helps then to try the cake.

• Bring some milk or water to wash it down

• Bring a towel for after the bath. I will have a towel on hand if you forget.

Payment

I accept cash, email money transfer and credit card (I will send an online link and you can pay via card or PayPal).
