Our studio specializes in first birthday sessions and smash sessions. We start with formal portraits of the child and family, move the smash and finally a bath!

Our Smash sessions are typically done in studio, but upon special request may be done outside or on location.


Typically, I do three sets or looks. That way we can get some nice formal photos of your little one, possibly a family photo and then on to the Cake/Food Smash. Upon special request, we'll end with a bath session. This can be the same theme as the cake smash (perhaps on the same area that the cake/food smash was done to show off how messy your little one got) or with a different theme. Or you can just do something simple and clean like a plain backdrop.


For the cake or food smash, the theme is chosen by you. If I have enough notice, I will try and accommodate special requests as much as I can. Any balloons, cake or food must be brought in by you (I can make recommendations) but I'll provide the backdrops and the cleanup of the studio.

I have both colored paper was well as a faux wood floor that can be used.

We also have sequins that can be used as a background to give an extra girly or glamorous look. The studio also carries some crowns, a few diaper covers and other outfits. (We have a little fireman's outfit for that theme!)

How many Images?

Our portrait sessions typically include 30+ images for you to review at your Ordering Session that occurs about two weeks after your session.

Considering a Cake Smash session and need ideas for themes? I've created some blogs with ideas for themes, as well as outfits and suggestions for props. This would work great for birthday parties as well!
