One Word: Priceless
WHY CAKE SMASH
Cake smash session is wonderful way of celebrating baby 1st BIRTHDAY.
Another (after newborn session and sitter session) milestone, continuation of the story. Session is full of fun for a child as well as parents. We let them be kids, play with cake while making memories which will always bring smile on your face!
Are props and sets provided?
During your 30-minute session we will shoot at least 2 different setups. You will fill out a questionnaire regarding your cake color and outfit preferences. We will then use our extensive inventory of cake plates, banners, backdrops and more to match. You only need to bring the cake! Everything else is included.
When is the best time to schedule a Cake Smash session?
It is best to schedule your child’s cake smash session about two weeks ahead of time. Cake Smash sessions are almost always best in the morning, based on the best time around their nap. Even if your one year old is beaming and happy at 6pm when you or your spouse come home from work, we have found that this is not the best time in the studio.
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU?
The main thing you need to take care of, especially for family session is clothing. You can find some hits and tips here. Special items are always welcome: little blanket your child got as a gift from Grandmother and you wish it to me captured with your family/child. If you are uncertain whether its worth to bring something or not, feel free to contact MTW Portrait Studio, We will be delighted to help. Additional outfit for the little one is always welcome. BRIBE- something your little one really like to eat, a biscuit, snack. Try to avoid chocolate as this will stain and live and marks all over the face.
Do you set up themes for the cake smash portion?
We will work with coordinating your color preferences before your session. We provide all the props for each set including cake plates, banners, and decorations.
What type of cake should I bring?
The cake should be 5-6” with a soft icing and a light color cake inside. Please leave the cake at room temperature about 2 hours before the session to ensure the frosting is nice and soft.
Do you include parent or sibling shots?
Yes, we do. However, Cake smash sessions focus on the baby. In the beginning of each session spend a few minutes playing games and warming to your child. We will absolutely include a family or sibling shot at the start of the session.
Can I invite my family members to the session?
Too many people trying to get your child to smile or talking tends to be a distraction. We kindly ask that you show your loved ones the keepsake memories.
How will we clean up?
The best part of having a cake smash at MTW Portraits is…. We do all the clean up! At the end of the cake smash we will provide you with a towel so you can clean your baby. But we will clean the mess on the floor and the studio. Most kids are done (really done!) at the end of the session so you get to walk out the door and leave the mess for us.
What will happen after the session?
After we are done in the studio, we take about 10-15 minutes to edit down your photos. Then, you sit with an experienced staff member to view your photos and decide which package you wish to go for.
