Default Cake smash photoshoot - any tips for sharing?

Hi all,

We will be doing one for our second daughter next week, just wondering any of you have done it for your kid and are there any tips you want to share?

We are just planning to setup a white seamless with 1 main and 1 BG light and that's it.

Thanks.

White seemless is ok, but for $2 at the dollar store, you could add a colorfully background of balloons. If you can use a sheet of plexiglass it helps as well....and oh ya, big brightly colored cake!
