Cake Smash Guide

Birthday sessions are styled to match babies BIRTHDAY outfit, CAKE or PARTY theme. You will want to book your session date 4 weeks before your event, if you are using images from your session. We can book out, up to a month in advance so please get your session booked in advance with us if you are planing to have a one of a kind Cake Smash with us at our Unique studio Tuesday-Friday from 11:00am-3:00pm. {before lunch or after work best} Make sure you do not skip a bottle or breakfast or lunch. A hungry baby will not eat or smash more cake and can become upset. Also keep in mind some babies do not like to be dirty, letting them explore the cake without pressure in the beginning will keep your little one happy as we work our way into getting into the cake. Some do just dig right in.. It’s all about the moment.

Cake & Outfit MUST be provided by parents.
4’-6’ inch cakes are required.
Fondant Cakes do not work for cake smash sessions.
Hard fondant layers make it tough for babies to dig into.

We do offer a few outfits/tutus BEFORE cake for clients use , depending on your child’s size and session package you have selected. MINIs do not come with this option.

*Signature sessions include ONE additional outfit to the cake smash outfit, use of indoor/ outdoor props before Cake Smash.

Sets are styled to fit a Birthday Party or Birthday Theme so we do need your help to design the perfect Birthday Backdrop for your session. Please provide images of cake SMASH OUTFIT, CAKE, PAPER goods or party DECOR you might want to include in your cake smash backdrop. We will incorporate what will best fit a set design. If you do not have a theme, we can set design by outfit, cake or color. We can also suggest unique ideas for a cake smash. We have a list of ideas on our Cake Smash bucket list. ALL PAPER ITEMS & BALLOONS must be assembled before you arrive if you plan on having your theme or party goods, incorporated into the set. Please Note: Balloons. & Paper items do take A LOT of time to assemble, and we want a Happy Baby for the session since they can tired very quickly & cut into your session time. We do suggest clients to assemble paper goods a few days before, to avoid rushing to get it all done the night before your session.

Please bring a LARGE towel, BOX of wipes & a for baby clean up and a comfy outfit to go home that can be washed & a bag to transport messy clothing. The studio is from the 1940s so we do not offer hot water or large sink so it is important to bring the listed items for baby clean up after the session.
