One type of session that I am going to start offering is the customized cake smash sessions for one year olds. I've been dying to do these because they are so much fun and personal to each child. Of course who else to guinea pig my ideas on than my own children. For Alex's first birthday his party theme was Mickey Mouse so I decided to use that theme for his cake smash session and do it the weekend prior to his party so that I could use the images from his session for decorations.
One of my wedding clients mentioned during her engagement session that she does cakes. I contacted her to see if she would be interested in working with me on cake smash cakes for these sessions, told her what I had in mind and let her run with it. I couldn't be more happy with the work she's done! Her cakes have been amazing and adorable.
The decorations for this session (pinwheels, poofs, confetti Mickeys and the letters he is holding) were all designed and made by me. I ordered his shirt and diaper cover from Polkadotologie on Etsy, his tie from PeytonsPrettiesShop on Etsy and the Mickey ears are from the disney store.
In addition to Alex's session I have a few more of these under my belt and I can say that they are a lot of work personalizing and planning but they are so much fun and so personal to each child that I just love these sessions. I'm thinking about adding them to the end of my newborn through 1 year packages, or as an add on so that the price doesn't change on the packages for those not interested. As soon as I come up with a standard pricing for these sessions I will get it posted.
