Preparing for your cake smash photography session in Ashburn Virginia

How stinking cute is this Ashburn Virginia cake smash photography session with baby Landon? So far, Landon has literally been my first little model who truly enjoyed his cake smash session. Not once did he shed a tear. He was munchin’ away like a champ. Unfortunately, that is not always the case with cake smash sessions.

Cake smash sessions may not turn out the way you like. Not every baby will dig into the cake and have fun with the sticky mess. However, there are a few things you can do to help make the session go smoothly. When I photographed Landon’s cake smash portraits, he was already 14 months old. His mom inquired weeks after his first birthday, but I did not think that was an issue at all. Most parents would like these pictures taken right around baby’s first birthday. I suggest you wait until he or she has had a first experience with cake at home, so it is not an entirely new and “gross” experience to them. The type of cake matters greatly. It is all about the texture. Please avoid fondant as it is very difficult for them to dig in. I also suggest to stay away from berries. Frosting makes for much cuter pictures and eliminates the choking hazzard as well. If you are unsure of what type of cake to get, I am here to help. I love cakes that match your theme. I can most certainly recommend talented bakers to you.

I always like to start with a couple of portraits before baby gets messy. This gives them a chance to warm up to me. Please make sure that he or she has had a nap before our session and RELAX! If you are having fun, your baby will most likely have fun as well.
