Cake Smash

Your baby is ONE!  Where did the time go? We see your little ones at 4 to 10 days old...then again at ONE!  These sessions mean so much to us too, and we get kind of emotional about them.


Your choice of a cake smash

one year session - $450


  • 1 hour session

  • use of our props,

  • Digital Collection of all images available for client to download.  Includes Print release.

  • Because of allergies parents are required to supply their own cakes.

I will work with you to design colors and themes of your One Year or Cake Smash session.  The best results are when we schedule your cake smash when baby is normally  hungry and when we keep visitors to a minimum. This helps us keep baby's  attention on enjoying the cake, free from distraction.

Please feel free to bring a pack of baby wipes as well as a change of clothes for both your child and yourself.  If the session is in our studio you can also use our tub to clean up.  On location Cake Smash sessions have the option to use our metal tub for bubble sessions following the Cake Smash.  (contingent on the time of year and weather conditions)

Parents or guardians will be required to sign a food release waiver to confirm that the child has no food allergies unless previously specified when booking the session.

We are happy to add mom and dad in the session for a couple of poses with baby, but please select the Family Plus One Year session to include parents, baby and additional siblings to allow for additional poses, photography & editing time.

Do I get to see ALL of the photos from my session?

You will see all of the BEST from your session. During any session we shoot multiples of the same pose.  This helps if for example someone blinks, or there is a focus issue etc...  What you will get however, is the very, very best shot of the poses we take.  I  will use my best judgement when selecting the photos for your gallery.  I will select the best from your session that represent the best pose, clarity, and composition and apply a light editing touch to them. 

 Can I download ALL of my photos?  

You will be able to download any image that you have purchased as part of your collection, including additional poses. Lexilu Photography retains the copyright to all images taken, so while we do not provide Copyright releases, we so provide a written PRINT RELEASE.  The print release will allow you to make unlimited prints from your purchased images.  Please remember that your first set of images are simply for giving our clients the option to pick their personal favorites for their package.  They are edited without additional retouching and are ready to print.  We make these large collections available to our clients so that they have a great selection to choose from, and with the trust that our copyright and studio policies will be respected.   These images will clearly  be marked PROOF and available for viewing/selecting only in your online gallery.  These photos are not to be downloaded, screen saved, or copied in any manner.   Once uploaded, the client will  select the final images for their collections, prints and products.  The final selected photos are then professionally retouched and edited in our Studio's custom style.  These images become your final collection.

Every image included in your online collection is available to select as your final collection or as an additional purchase.    Due to the nature of newborn photography, our Newborn session images do not qualify for the non-retouched option. 

Do you create special photos or composites?
Specialty images and digital composites are available when the baby is able to be posed in a certain way. Some poses are achieved by taking 3 to 4 images and blending or compositing them into one image.  If a certain pose is requested and What are digital composites, and why do they cost extra?baby is able to be safely posed we are happy to do so.  We also offer digital backdrop poses, where baby is shot on a neutral background and then the image is composited into a floral nest or basket.  These specialty images require more time in photographing baby as well as in the editing room.  Because of this they are available for $50 per composite.  We will be uploading a list of our available composites soon.   If you have a special pose that you want please let us know before baby's session.
