Turning one is a major life event, not only for your baby but for you as a parent too. You have made it through the first year of parenthood! This calls for a celebration with cake and balloons!
For baby, celebrating in their birthday suit is the best and makes for easy clean-up after the session. However, baby can wear an outfit too offered in studio wardrobe.
Due to (potential) allergies and potential liability, ALTOH Photography will not provide the cake for your session without a liability release. For customized smash cakes, please contact your baker well in advance to ensure your cake order is reserved. Choose a cake that is easily smashable and has vanilla or light-colored cake inside. Beware of bright and colorful icings that might stain teeth, clothing or the bathtub when you rinse your baby off. Note that cakes with red icing when smashed will look like a bloody massacre and chocolate will look like poo! It’s a good idea to make sure you test out a small cupcake or cake before your session.
1) You want to make sure your baby doesn’t have any allergies you are not aware of (i.e. eggs)
2) You want to make sure your baby has had a prior experience with cake smashing so that it is not overwhelming for them at the session and they know what to do!
Preparation helps your session run smoothly so we can focus on capturing your baby’s personality!
