Pro Tip for your baby’s cake smash session: It shouldn’t be difficult to find an Indiana cake smash photographer. What is more difficult is ensuring your baby will love the session! Textures are a funny thing to get used to! For some kids, they will not want to touch or taste the cake. To make the most of a first year cake smash session with me, I have some tips to make it as sooth as possible. In the few weeks leading up to the cake smash, encourage your baby to play in their food. I know it sounds counterproductive but the only way to get those shots of them smearing the cake everywhere and eating it is to let them practice! Serve spaghetti, cottage cheese, yogurt, blended fruits, and oatmeals without utensils. Let them get used to touching and exploring their food! And that’s today’s hot tip!

Use these products to help eliminate some of the mess while they explore new textures! Take it from me- your Indiana cake smash photographer! Try silicone placemats, bibs to catch extras, Water Wipes, mess catcher for high chairs, and your favorite baby soap for the bath they will surely need after.
