props & more
I provide props, backdrops, outfits, cake stands, etc., so there is nothing you need to worry about. The only exception is for cake smash sessions, I do not provide the cake for potential allergy concerns. My advice is to avoid red, black, or brown frosting (a little detail is ok but I would avoid doing a lot of these colors), naked cakes are a great choice as they photograph beautifully and have less frosting for babies that may be intimidated or bothered by sticky frosting on their hands. :)
I have multiple session types from mini to full to elaborate. With 3, 6, 9 month milestones, I usually do fairly simple setups with more focus on baby versus props. When it comes to cake smashes, most commonly, I do general themes such as florals, outdoors, camping, color schemes, etc. If you are looking for something very specific and more elaborate (specific characters, cartoons, etc.), I offer a specific cake smash session to accommodate more elaborate props and themes so be sure to keep this in mind when booking your session.
