Centreline Design Client Guide 1st Birthday and Cake Smash Portraits 2017
Welcome One of the things we forget is how quickly life changes. Your family is the most important thing in your life, capturing a moment in time with loved ones is priceless. As your photographer it is my goal to ensure that you love every aspect of your photography experience from booking your session to sharing the final products with your loved ones. I look forward to working with you and your family. This guide has been created to help you plan and prepare for our session together. Our studio is located in Lindsay Ontario, where the cake smash photo sessions take place. This makes it easier to set up the decor and be ready for when you arrive and I will clean up the cake mess afterwards. I canâ€™t wait to meet your precious little one and create some art featuring your very own baby. All the best,
A year of smiles, laughs and so much fun! Your little one is turning
At Centreline Design we want to make this part easy for you.
It is as easy as 1, 2, 3,
Step 1, choose your type of session. Newborn, Cake Smash etc.
Step 2, choose a collection that will fit your needs best!
Step 3, choose any additional products you would like.
Planning Your Session When we are scheduling your session, we will discuss what you envision from your childâ€™s portrait session. I will consult with you to plan your session based around your personal style, colour perfences and how you plan to use your images as art for your home. We will discuss details for the session, preparation and answer any questions you have. Let me know when your child is their happiest, this is key to a successful cake smash. All decorations, props and banners for your session will be based on your colour preference and be provided for you. There is a few rompers, and diaper covers that can be used but feel free to bring an outfit of your choice for your session.
What to expect Cake smash sessions typically last 30-60 minutes, depending on how your child. Anytime around your childâ€™s first birthday is perfect. Your baby sets the pace, allowing all the time needed for each stage of the session. A cake smash session has three distinct parts; 1) We start with some portraits without the cake, letting your child get used to the surroundings and lights in the studio. 2) Following this with be the cake smash. We can change into the cake smash outfit and to the cake setting. Cake and balloons are not provided so please bring a cake, and balloons if you wish. 3) Finally, we will clean it all up with a bubble bath for the fun and adorable splash portraits. We would be happy to provide a professional custom cake for $30. Please let me know when booking the session and I will arrange for the cake to be delivered so there is less stress on you! Please bring a change of clothes for your child, as the icing can quite literally get everywhere. A few of your childâ€™s favourite toys may also be a good idea for comforting and distracting at the beginning of the session.

With hand painted edges using up to four layers and a beveled edge for a seamless finish. Edges available in either black, white, pale grey or brown.
Canvas Gallery Wrap These 1.5” thick canvases are one of the most popular products. These are hand-stretched by professionals using the finest quality archival canvas on solid wood stretchers using real pigment inks. All canvases are coated with archival laminates for extra protection and durability. Each canvas wrap is reinforced with a front face board for extra strength. The back of the canvas has a finished cover and is ready to hang.
Metal Print Metal printing is just that – printing on Metal. We use a special high heat sublimation process to create durable images on aluminum panels that are ready to display or hang. The specially treated aluminum panels absorb the image inside the coating and not on top, resulting in images that have an amazing depth. These prints have a similar lifespan to traditional photographic prints. *Tiny imperfections will occasionally be present in the surface of the metal.
