Plan Ahead

When it comes to preparing for a cake smash session, there are several things to take into consideration beforehand - such as deciding on props/colors/themes (if any) and even choosing what type of cake you'd like. If possible, it's best to discuss all these details with Shelly Pray via email or phone at least two weeks before your session — this ensures that everything will be ready and in place once you arrive!

Pick the Right Cake

Cake smashes are all about having fun, so try picking something simple yet tasty; classic cakes like vanilla & chocolate are always popular choices but if you're feeling more adventurous why not go for something unique like red velvet or even unicorn themed options? Shelly can work with most types just make sure whatever design you choose isn't too complicated since babies have tiny hands - silly icing decorations might prove difficult for them so stick to simpler designs instead ;)

Let Your Baby Lead

Whichever approach your little one takes, let them lead and enjoy watching their reactions —Shelly knows exactly when to capture those priceless moments so worry not! Just sit back & allow your child be present in the moment; feel free to offer gentle encouragement along the way if needed but don't force anything or else it might end up being too overwhelming which could put a damper on proceedings.

The key ingredient behind any cake smash experience is simply having fun - lots of laughter is generally indicative of a successful shoot :) Not only will this give you beautiful memories down the line but also keep any mess making sessions enjoyable without creating too much stress either.
