Raleigh NC Cake Smash Photographer | First Birthday Photography
Can you believe it? The first year flies by in the blink of an eye. It’s time to start planning for your little ones 1st birthday and all of the amazing things that come with celebrating this exciting milestone. You can start to see personality and what better way to capture that shining personality than with a cake smash photography session?!
Admittedly, I had never heard of cake smash photography when I had my oldest son. The idea of a cake smash is relatively new, so don’t fret if this is the first time you are hearing about it. It is really simple we get to watch your little one dive into cake and a sugar induced frenzy. You never know what is going to happen but the anticipation is so exciting!
My simplistic style allows us to really focus on the task at hand.. Getting the first sugar buzz! I work with each and every single client to plan a perfect cake smash session. Everything from what to wear, where to get the cake, what to expect (never “expect” anything) and how the session typically flows.
What is Included in a Cake Smash Photography Session?
It is so important that you know what to expect in this session, including what you get with your investment. Every cake smash session includes a pre shoot consultation. This consultation is done over the phone or online and can take anywhere between 10-20 minutes, depending on what your questions are. It is during the consultation that we discuss outfits and how we can make this session memorable for all of us. The cake smash session itself takes anywhere between 15-30 minutes. After your session you will receive an online viewing gallery where you can select 10 images of your choice. I will then edit those images you have selected and digitally edit those images and return those images to you with the professional print release.
Where Does the Cake Smash Photography Session Take Place?
My cake smash sessions happen in my studio based in Holly Springs, NC. This allows me to control the lighting and have a set up ideal for you and the star of the show! Why don’t we do these outdoors? I am not a fan of having these sessions outdoors for a number of reasons. One is that being outdoors can be a huge distraction and it is not very sanitary. Being outside with a cake tends to attract the bugs and dirt.
When Do We Schedule the Cake Smash Session
This is the most common question and I will address this question during the pre shoot consultation. We make that decision together to fit your needs.
