BABIES & CAKE SMASHES

Your baby's milestone or cake smash session will take place in my gorgeous home studio located in Edmonton, Alberta near St. Albert. The studio is an inviting haven that has been specially designed for busy parents and their families. It is fully stocked with high-end props, luxurious wardrobe options, high-end headbands, accessories, backdrops, and more. The studio features a large shooting area with comfortable seating so that you can sit back and relax with a coffee and a snack while I create timeless art featuring your family and your beautiful baby.

Appointments typically take place on weekdays (10 am - 6pm). Sessions on Saturdays are sometimes available depending on my schedule.

All sessions move at your baby's pace and include lots of time for letting your little one adjust. The recommended ages for sessions depend on baby's stages of development and are not necessarily at a specific month of age:

  • Tummy Time (usually 3.5 - 6 months) - These sessions are done when baby can comfortably lift their head while on their tummy and smile or make eye contact with the camera
  • Sitter - (usually 6-9 months) These sessions are done when baby can sit unassisted for at least 20 seconds without support
  • Cruiser - (usually 9-12 months) These sessions are done when baby is crawling or scooting and can sit unassisted with no wobbling and/or stand while holding onto something
  • One Year - sessions that take place right around baby's first birthday and can include a cake smash (though many prefer just simple clean photos of baby and that's fine too!)
  • Nursing Session - these beautiful sessions can be done in studio, outdoors (summer only), or in a beautiful milk bath

If you would like to book a session but don't know when your baby will reach the sitting milestone, we can book you a floating date for 6 months of age and a couple weeks prior to that date we will connect and see if it needs to be moved back a few weeks until baby is ready.

It is recommended that you book 2-3 months in advance to ensure availability. While last-minute openings may be available, booking early ensures I am able to photograph your baby during the milestone you want to capture.

WE DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY

Picture this: you have an old friend from college over for dinner and she wants to see some photos of your baby's cake smash session. Problem is, you don't know where you put that USB from the session which was a few months back. You've got that sneak peek the photographer posted on your phone, but haven't gotten around to saving the photos just yet. Would you rather keep searching for that USB-- OR-- would you rather enjoy the beautiful smiling face of your baby, hanging beautifully on your walls or maybe right at your fingertips in an exquisitely designed album?

Because our goal is to get museum quality art into your home and off the USB, we do things a little differently than other photography studios. First of all there is NO SESSION FEE. Instead, you select one of the packages below and the full amount you spend on the package goes towards prints, wall art, story boxes, and/or albums, all of which can be ordered during your Guided Artwork Experience.

Wait... what?? Yes, you read that right! You get to take 100% of the package cost and use it to go on a shopping spree to buy whatever you like.

It's that simple! And, you will also get a matching digital file of every image purchased so you can share with your family and friends to your heart's content. This allows you to buy only what you love.
