Frequently Asked Questions

How much experience do you have?

A.I have been capturing cake smash portraits for over 10 years and have a ton of tricks up my sleeve to get your babies to cooperate and create the cutest smash photos ever! If your little one is shy or anxious or needs extra time I have got you covered. I mean it when I say that your memories matter to me too. I promise you quality and a stress free full experience. If we have to reschedule your session for after a nap or take extra time if your little is nervous I am super patient about that. As a mom of 3 kiddos of my own I know sometimes patience is key and we can't make them do anything.
Together we will create the sweetest memories of your little one for you to treasure for years to come.
Everything is provided so all you have to do is arrive with your little one and enjoy the experience while you let me take care of the rest.
With many theme options, my creative design skills and high quality props and outfits we will make your theme come to life!

Where is your studio located?

A.My home studio located in South Oshawa close to the lake about 5 minutes from the 401 hwy. I am around the corner from the South Oshawa Community Center.

What should I expect during the cake smash session?

A.During your cake smash session you will be greeted at the studio entrance. We will begin in your cake smash outfit taking before clean portraits with various props and poses. We will then transition into the cake smash portion of your session taking photos of your little ones reactions to their cake. Once your babe has had enough of their cake (approximately 15 mins) we will move into the bath portion of your session. Where they will be able to splash around and get somewhat cleaned up before heading home from their session.

What happens if my little one doesn't like the cake?

A.Some babies love cake and some do not. I have lots of tricks up my sleeve to try and get babies playing in their cake one way or another but from time to time there is a little one that is totally against it and not a fan. Be open minded that documenting your little ones cake smash might be documenting that they hated their cake. It tells a story and makes for fun memories none the less. Don't fret though if they hate cake they usually smile and love clean before pics and definitely splashing in their bath. The different photo opportunities help to make for fun photos.

How messy will things get?

A.Cake smashes are messy activities. Imagine babies crawling away, running, walking, towards you all goopy grabbing at your hair or shirt. haha It is messy business. Dress to get dirty and bring a change of clothes and socks for yourself. You may need them if you plan to go anywhere following your session. It is appreciated if you do your best to keep your little one on the cake smash set so they do not get icing and cake all throughout the studio or on other delicate props in the studio.

Why should I offer cake prior to my session?

A.It is a good idea to offer cake to your little one prior to their cake smash session. Babies that have tried sweets before tend to do better and have more fun in their cake opposed to babies that have never had anything with sugar before. Being in a new space can be tough for some especially since covid let alone trying a new food in front of a bright light and camera. For allergies sake as well its a great idea just to make sure that they don't have any negative reactions during your session. All smash cakes are vanilla with vanilla buttercream icing. Give them a cupcake and let them practice. It's a great idea to include bystanders and siblings in the first taste at home without bringing them to the studio as well. You will be glad you did.

Can I take pictures with my cell phone during the session?

A.It is okay if you wish to take behind the scenes shots or videos of your little one during their session. It is appreciated if you share the love and tag my Facebook page or instagram in your posts when you share the though. I'd love to see them too!

Can I bring family & siblings?

A.During a cake smash session having extra bystanders and siblings to watch can sound like a fun idea but in reality it isn't. It ends up interfering greatly with the turnout of your images. It is recommended that siblings and extra people stay home. Babies tend to look to familiar bystanders rather than interacting with me and looking at the camera for the shots you want me to capture. I work hard for eye contact and fun poses with your child and the more people present during the session the harder it is to get them to participate and interact with the camera for your photos. You won't want them looking to the left in all the shots, trust me! Too many people encouraging them to smile and participate can be overwhelming as well and they often don't know where to look.

It is so hard for siblings of any age to watch their baby sibling enjoy an entire cake to themselves a few feet away as well. As of mom of 3 I know all to well the sibling rivalry is real. Even older children get upset causing frustration for parents and reducing the shots and fun poses we were able to capture during the session. Some even run into the shots and try and have cake which causes missed moments. I strongly recommend to keep it simple for the best and cutest turn out from your cake smash session, let's just focus on birthday baby!

My goal during every session is to turn the cake into a messy pile on the floor for super fun photos so don't promise anyone left over cake, most likely there will not be any that is not a mucky mess haha

Can we do family photos during the cake smash too?

A.These sessions are for 1 child or twins only. Due to the nature of cake smash sessions and the amount of performing that they have to do during the shoot to get quality images I do not focus on too many things at once and choose to focus solely on my cake smash portraits to get the best of the best for my clients. Family and sibling images are not offered during cake smash sessions. In my experience I have found it is best to focus on one thing at a time as babies have pretty short attention spans and we want to make sure we get the cute cake smash photos that you are booking me for. We can do family portraits any time. If you still want family portraits to document them turning one in addition to your cake smash I have a special promo for my smash clients to do a family mini session within the birthday month to capture those on a different date.

How long will it take to get my images?

A.I estimate that entire final galleries will be delivered within 4 weeks from the time of your session however sometimes it can be a bit longer than this as well. Turnaround times are estimates and may fluctuate based on different gallery/ client needs or editing tasks. If you would like some sneak peek images back by a certain date to tie you over while you wait for your entire gallery within my timeline please disclose at booking or after your session and I will do my best to get you some super cute shots if the whole gallery will not be ready in time. Every effort will be made to meet your expectations however sometimes things do pop up and with a family of my own having a longer timeline allows me to balance everything healthily.
If you wish to have your gallery back within 3 business days guaranteed you may pay my rush fee of $125+hst and jump the editing line up for a faster final gallery delivery.

Is it possible to book my child's session closer to their birthday?

A.Yes! If you would like to have your session done closer to your little's birthday we can totally do that, your images just will not be completed and returned in time. See the question above for more info.
