• Everything except the cake is provided by me i.e. balloons, banners, backdrops, props, custom hand tailored boutique outfits, deluxe headbands and premium bonnets, custom hats, premium layering pieces, etc.

We are so very glad you asked! Our address, unfortunately, is pretty deceiving. Although we have a London address, we are quite literally on the verge of the cut off for London addresses (London is 18 miles west of us). We are MUCH closer to other towns and are 1.5 miles from the Franklin/Madison County line. We are 6 miles directly south of West Jefferson and 9 miles directly west of Grove City off of Rt. 665 (London-Groveport Rd). 

Your address says London. That seems far. Where in London are you located? 

If a family is certain they'd like to book with me, I will email a link to my session contract for you to review and sign. I will also email an invoice for the non-refundable session fee retainer. We will discuss what colors and/or theme you prefer for the session and styling preferences for outfits. I will carefully select and style the session before you arrive. Once here, we will review what has been selected and make any changes needed. 

What is the process for booking a first birthday or cake smash session with you? 

We will create an inspiration board on Pinterest as a reference point for what colors or themes you like. We will use this inspiration board to thoughtfully and artistically create a beautiful birthday set.  

This is a great question! There are many babies with allergies or sensitivities to dairy, eggs, gluten, food colorings, etc. With this in mind, I have found that it is safer and best for a family to work with a baker directly and order a cake that best suits their child’s needs. 

The studio is fully stocked with anything and everything we could need: towels, wash cloths, tear free soap and shampoos, hair dryer, baby tub, etc. I even have a few extra outfits here in case you forget to bring a change of clothes for your baby! 

Why do we need to bring the cake instead of you providing one?
