As a Cake smash photographer, I understand parents often worry about their baby getting sick before their photoshoot.

What to expect if your baby is sick.

When baby A arrived it was clear she was a little under the weather. Mom and dad mentioned she had been sick a little earlier and wasn’t feeling her best. But she seemed calm so we went ahead with the session.

Parents often wonder what will happen if their baby gets sick before a session. If clients let me know with 24-hour notice then we are happy to re-schedule the session. We both want the same thing. A happy smiling baby!

However very rarely a parent may not realize till the day of that their baby’s session. In that case, we go ahead anyhow. If the session is a total disaster which doesn’t often happen then we will do a re-shoot. I’m happy to do do a re-shot. It’s really important to me that clients are happy with the photos they have come in for.

Baby A has a big sister who stepped in as a perfect assistant. With a little direction, she was great at getting our sweet baby unicorn to smile.

We started off with a couple of family portraits. This allowed the baby to feel more comfortable.

Then we focused the rest of the session on the birthday girl!


The Cake Smash.

Baby a was changed into her “cake smashing” outfit. A unicorn was the theme for this session. I usually get the parents to sit next to or behind me on the floor. I then start making lots of silly sounds and noises. Annoying to adults but liked by most kids!

Given that our baby unicorn wasn’t feeling well the session was going great! We got lots of cute smiles and she seemed to be having fun!

At the end of the smash, we finished the session off with a splash bath! A hit as usual. Almost always guaranteed to bring a smile to baby’s face.
