Pricing - Smash + Splash

CakeSmash Sessions

Cake Smash Sessions can be as simple or elaborate as you choose. Themes can be based on colors, characters, styles or set ups. If you're wanting a Cake Smash, we will chat about your ideas & make a plan for the set up.

Important Information:

This is an "all hands on deck!" type session. 

Parents must be prepared to be involved in making their child(ren) smile and laugh while exploring their new cake.

Smash & Splash Session take a lot of time to prep for (this includes creating handmade props, such as banners) & to clean up after- everything with frosting & bath water gets washed (up to two loads of laundry), floors mopped, backdrops cut & tossed.

The Details

My Smash+Splash Sessions are three part and up to 90 minutes of session time. We start with clean birthday photos in their special outfit & photos with family/parents/siblings if desired. Then while parents prep baby in their "smash" outfit, I grab photos of the cake and/or set up. Once baby is ready, we move to the smash part & follow that with the splash session. From this session, clients receive 10 fully edited, high resolution images* of your choice, a fully edited online viewing gallery, a full print release for selected photos, optional upgrades, the option to purchase additional images from your online gallery, additional prints and/or products. $200

The Smash

For the "smash", based on the theme, I will provide: The backdrop, a banner if chosen, a cake plate, a prop or two, a number 1, set up & clean up.

Parents Provide: The outfit, the cake, any special props & balloons if they choose.


The Splash

The Splash Session is after the Smash. We use this session to clean up your little one. They splash & play & get all cleaned up while I capture the moment.

For the "splash" I will provide: The tub, & the final set clean up.

Parents Provide: Baby's bubble & body wash, their favorite bath toys & a towel.
