The Cake Smash photography Experience

The days may be long, but the years are short. This holds true especially with the first year. From the moment you find out you are expecting, your life will never be the same. From the anticipation to all the fun new items you will need for your new little one. From the tiny toes to the button nose. Every single moment will go by fast and the best way to hold on to these memories is to document them with photographs. You will never regret the photos you have taken, but you may regret the ones you don't. Every pregnancy and baby is different and should be honored as such. 

Having children is one of the best moments you will ever experience in your life

Let me capture all the memories and milestones for you, so you never forget!

Clients who choose the KDP Experience come from all walks of the land and are families in all different shapes and sizes, but have a few things in common. My Clients are looking for more than just quality portraits but also an experience. They want to know the process from beginning to end will be relaxing and stress free.  They have a fun adventurous spirit and are willing to let me design an amazing experience with their style in mind.  They are looking for high quality portraits over the quantity of portraits.  Priceless heirlooms that will be cherished and displayed throughout the years. 
If this sounds like you, lets chat!

First things first, let's get to know each other.  I know everyone has busy lives and I like to let you choose the most convenient way for you to do this. Options include; emails, phone consult, video consult and in person meeting. Whether you would like to talk or text, we will do what is easiest for your life and your schedule. 
During this consult we will discuss your session needs, wardrobe options and styles for your little one. We will really get to know each other so on session day you will feel comfortable and ready to relax and have fun. 
We will discuss the Grow with Me options available and decide if you would like to grab one of the 10 spots available for the year or book  a single session. 
Once you have decided to book you will pay a $200 retainer to secure your session date. The retainer will be deducted from the Collection you choose at your reveal after the session.

1. Say Hello

2. grow with me options

During your consultation we will discuss the Grow With Me membership. 
This is similar to the Bump to Baby but can start with 3 month options. 
This is for the parents who don't want to miss a single milestone that first year. We will discuss the 3 options and the benefits to becoming a Grow with Me Member. There are only 10 Grow with me memberships available each year, so clients are recommended to reserve their spot early.
Options Available 
  • 3 Months-Sitter-One Year
  • Sitter-One Year
  • 3 Month-Sitter-9 Month-One Year

Let me do the hard work for you by coordinating your little ones wardrobe in preparation for their session.
After securing the session on my calendar, I will invite you for your design appointment where we talk about the session date & location, the details and your vision for your little ones portraits, and wardrobe options.
When you become an KDP client, I make sure that every detail of your portrait session is taken care of for you.  However, your opinion matters to me and I will include you in this process by sending you a questionnaire prior to your design appointment for you to fill out that will help identify what you are looking to get out of your portrait session.   It will be so fun to design the session around your style. During this appointment we run through the wardrobe options and setups for your child's session. 

3. design appointment

The fun day is here! Don't worry about anything, I have it covered. The studio or location will be ready to go. Snack and drinks waiting along with agreed upon outfits. 
The studio will be ready to go for the second your little ones comes in, but no worries, we will not rush to get started. In my years as a Cleveland, Akron & Canton Baby Photographer I have learned that babies need time to warm up to me and their environment. I will watch how they react and we will take a few moments to get to know each other before starting. 
 While we are allowing your little one to warm up, I will show you the sets we have for the session along with the planned outfits. Unless otherwise requested, I will have the Cake there and ready as well. 

4. session day

Whether you choose an all inclusive Digital Package, an Heirloom  Collection or a combination of both, KDP will walk you through what is best for your family. 
From luxe linen & leather albums, to a story telling wall arrangement, there is no limit to customizing artwork for your beautiful home. 
You will have the option for an in person ordering appointment where we will design your collection to fit your personal needs or an online gallery viewing. 
I will be here to guide you through the entire process from consult until you are holding your beautiful artwork in hand or downloading your amazing gallery to create your own artwork for your home.

I didn’t know much about newborn pictures, but I am so thankful that Kendrah was suggested to me by another photographer (who doesn’t do newborn pics). Kendrah was so gentle with my newborn and catered to my style and interests. At one point when I was looking for a photographer, I thought just professional photographer would do, but after my experience with Kendrah, I would highly recommend using her business and NOT going with just a regular photographer. I was so impressed with her studio, professionalism, and (more importantly) her gentle handling of my week old baby. We loved our experience!

We started using Kendrah Damis photography with the arrival of my daughter in August of 2019. I was beyond impressed with the photos. To say I was happy with the service is an understatement. My daughter was fussy and just not having it that day. Kendrah was patient and kind. She was professional and understanding.
Fast forward to yesterday. It was time for my daughter's first birthday session. Kendrah suggested a cake smash for the session. I was a little leary to be honest but I trust her opinion so I did it. Seriously!!! If you haven't booked with her are missing out on the best talent around. She is so easy to work with and pours her heart into everything she does.
My family and I are forever clients and I highly encourage anyone to contact her first. Her pricing is fair and worth every dime. You not only receive pictures but you receive an experience using Kendrah Damis photography ♡~Kiersten

Kendrah Damis does more than just capture an image, she captures magic. The magic of a newborn's first fleeting smile, the magical feeling of holding your baby in your arms.
It doesn't matter if you're a postpartum wreck, or your toddler is screaming in the background, she stays focused and knows just how to spot those tiny moments of magic that you were too distracted to see.
She is truly an artist, and the art she gives you will be something you cherish for a lifetime.

I have shot with Kendrah for a few years, and was especially excited to book maternity with her. She captured every bit of the beauty during my session.
My husband who is shy in front of the camera said he never felt more comfortable. Kendrah has a way of making anyone feel like a long time friend and you almost forget there is a camera clicking.
The turn around for my photos was quicker than I had anticipated but no detail went unnoticed. Her editing skills are incomparable to others in the area.

Kendrah is not only our go to photographer, but she has become a friend along the way. I had the opportunity to meet her several years ago after seeing some of her work shared on social media and decided I wanted pictures just as beautiful of my own family. We decided to take the plunge and book a session with her, and we have never been disappointed! She is rather talented, but there is quite a bit of skill and hard work but into her sessions as well. It almost sounds odd to say "work" and it refer to "art," but she definitely puts her all into this passion of hers. She has been helpful when deciding what to wear, helping narrow down backdrops, and putting together a complete vision. On top of that she is thorough and her communication back and forth is spot on! She gets galleries delivered on time and answers any questions we've ever had. Having been with her through so many milestones at this point - children's birthdays, maternity, birth, and newborn & family sessions - Kendrah is almost like an extension of our family. She's the best!

Kendrah does such a great job! Our family started coming to her Aug 2021 for our newborn daughters photos and they were everything we could of asked for and more! She has currently done 3 sessions for us and I couldn't of asked for better photos of our family. I recommend her to everyone I know.

Kendrah did our newborn and milestone photos and she was nothing but professional and absolutely delightful with our children. My kids adore her! She was so patient and did an amazing job capturing our child’s first year. I would recommend her to anyone. Her photos are worth every penny.

We love having our family photos done by Kendrah! She's amazing and always gets our daughter to smile even when she wants nothing to do with the session! Our house is filled with important moments and memories that Kendrah captured beautifully for us.
