What's included in the studio my first year cake smash:
Studio cake smash sessions are held in studio between September to April when babies are generally not as vunerable to illness. Our rustic cake smash sessions are open all year round. For studio sessions we provide the cake (unless your child has allergies), balloons, select decorations, select backdrops and one of our cake smash outfits if you don't have something else special in mind. We do all the organising, set everything up and even clean up. After your baby has demolished the cake smash cake, they will enjoy a warm bubble bath. If you have another theme in mind to the set-up's provided, we welcome you to incorporate items supplied by yourself into the session or can provide a complimentary quote for add-on items not included in our standard cake smash package..
What's included in the rustic cake smash:
We use a fabulous outdoor forest location during the warmer months, provide the cake (unless your child has allergies), a rustic themed set up with natural foliage wreaths, tree stumps, crate cake stand and a bunting. We even bring a warm bath for your little one to soak in. We do all the organising, set up and clean up. If you have another theme in mind, we welcome you to incorporate items supplied by yourself into the session or can provide you with a quote for add-on items not included in the standard cake smash package..

How we help you prepare
We will provide you with comprehensive cake smash photography information along with a questionnaire to style the session. During our pre-session phone consultation we'll go over the finer details and answer any questions you may still have.
When will our photos be ready
Most of the magic happens before and after the session with the largest portion of your session spent post-processing your photos. We custom edit everything by hand rather than use a one click process to retouch your photos. We individually correct tiny skin imperfections, adjust colour and light then enhance the overall artistic feel of each individual photo consistent with our portfolio. Proofing galleries are presented in an online proofing gallery approximately 20 business days after the session for you to make your final selections.
What products do you offer
We offer digital only collections or a combination of print and digital collections. Cake smash clients have the optional purchase of a 12" x 12" canvas for $130 containing four favorite images from the day. Clients may also purchase add-on printed products form our wide selection of standard prints, fine art prints, torn edge fine art prints, matted art-mount with print, framed prints, acrylic prints, metal prints, albums and canvas.
Our fine art prints are printed on museum quality Hahnemühle Photo Rag made from 100% cotton using archival pigment inks making them incredibly detailed. Our standard prints are printed on premium paper offering amazing colour, exceptional quality, durability and longevity. In our digital world today, often the starting point of the desire for the digital product is higher than that of the desire of the printed product and while you may be able to print them yourself (if they don't stay on a usb forgotten in a drawer), you simply can't buy many of the products at the same quality retail. Digital files are not the best representation of our work or of your investment and while digitals might seem convenient, the longevity of the devices you store them on, the data contained in a jpg file is unknown.
