Prior to your session I will send a questionaire, please indicate on that your choices of colour or themes and any items you would like including for the session, this will help me know what decorations to set up these can not be added after the shoot during editing, if you arrive at your session and do not like the set up or would like something adding or removing, please mention this at the time as this can not be rectified after, please let me know if baby if afraid of balloons
All the set ups I have in my galleries are only examples of what is available and that I have shot already, some of the personalised items have been provided by parents, please contact your photographer PRIOR to your session to let them know if you would like to have coloured balloons to match your coloured set up so these can be ordered ahead of your session, you can always send screen shots of your favourites to give examples, if there is something you like this can not be added after the shoot, and balloons are NOT included as standard and must be requested
We will take Family shots first, these are shot on a white backdrop and are only 2 or 3 shots from waist upwards, the baby then will have some shots taken alone without the cake on your selected cake smash backdrop, at this point we can include the sibling, however they wont be any other choice of backdrop for these. Please bring a dressy outfit for baby for the portrait part of the session. The cake
I provide the cake for the session, we can discuss any dietry requirements, you are welcome to bring your own but please let me know if you want to do this so I can make sure it will be suitable, I only provide the cake you will need to bring any toppers, these should be fairly small as the cake is only 4" in diameters.
On the day of the session please try and have baby well fed and rested before the session, very hungry or tired babies will not be happy sat posing, please bring a drink for baby as very sweet cakes can make them thirsty, also sometimes a savory snack can help if they get cranky.
I have bubble baths for normal and very sensitive skins however feel free to bring your own if you prefer please bring your own towel for this part.
Babies sometimes get upset or want cuddles, if they are covered in cake (which they usually are) then you will also get covered in cake, sometimes a change of clothing for Mum/Dad or both can be a good idea, especially if you came in nice clothes for photos.
Siblings IMPORTANT - If any member of the party behaves in any way which puts me, my equipment or props at risk the shoot ends with no refund immediately. Damages will be charged at full replacement value there and then. Unfortunatley I have had young children run round the studio playing with props and whilst I totally understand that young children get very bored at a long shoot they are not allowed in the studio if they cant be supervised properly as it is a working environment, I have electrical wires, Lights on stands and very hot heaters, not to mention very valuable props, my focus is entirely on your baby so siblings must be kept quiet and away from the shooting area.
How Will The Session Go
One thing I have learnt over the years is not all babies like smashing cakes, some wont even go near it, some hate the feel of it on their hands, others love it, I can never tell how your baby will be, I always advise parents to come with an open mind and remember I wont force baby to do anything, my sessions are very go-with-the-flow I will always do my best to get some amazing shots for you regardless.
