9 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR CAKE SMASH PHOTOSHOOT
1. WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK A CAKE SMASH PHOTOSHOOT SESSION?
You can book your cake smash session as early as possible. We suggests that cake smash photoshoot sessions are done between 4 to 6 weeks before baby turns one, this will ensure you receive your images before your baby's actual birthday.
2. HOW LONG DOES A CAKE SMASH PHOTOSHOOT TAKE?
The entire cake smash session will take up to 1.5hrs at my home studio.
3. WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE CAKE SMASH SESSION?
Your session will start with the cake on its own while you get ready. Then we take portraits of baby on their own and then portrait with the cake. We will then move on to the cake smashing photoshoot section of the shoot; and lastly your baby gets to have fun splashing in a bubble bath.
4. DO I NEED TO PROVIDE ANYTHING?
With our cake smash sessions we provide everything (Birthday cake, Decorations, Outfit and props) you need; however we ask that you provide one special outfit for your baby's portrait shoot; bath towel and their favourite bathtime bubble. We provide you with a 5" birthday cake as part of our packages. It is also advisable that you have some snacks and milk/water for your baby to eat and drink during the session if required. Please bring you baby's favourite snack to the session so that we can hide at the back of the cake to attract your baby's interest.
5. WHAT IF I HAVE A SPECIFIC IDEA OR THEME FOR THE CAKE SMASH PHOTOSHOOT?
I absolutely love themed cake smash photography and I happy to work with you to bring your ideas to life. The Iris cake smash package give you the opportunity to pick your own theme or colours; or if you prefer you could use our beautiful selection of pre-designed backdrops. if there is a specific pre-designed theme that you would like please speak to me about it and I will make every effort to get the design for you.
6. WHAT IF MY BABY HAS NEVER HAD CAKE BEFORE?
It is important that you let your baby taste and play with some cake and icing before their cake smash session so that they are use to the whole idea and we can have fun on the day. If possible please buy a cheap birthday cake from the supermarket and let your baby play with it.
7. HOW DO I PREPARE MY BABY FOR THEIR SESSION?
It is very important that your baby is well fed and rested before their cake smash photoshoot. Please let me know their nap time before hand so that we can plan the session around it. Please introduce your baby to balloons before the session.
8. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
One week after your baby's cake smash session you will receive an online gallery of the unedited images taken at the session. This is where you get the opportunity to select the images you like for final editing. Once you have made your selection the final editing process could take up to 3 weeks depending on how busy I am. In addition you will also be able to order professional prints, albums and bespoke wall art products.
