This session was near and dear to my heart. This little boy’s Mommy, was one of my childhood best friends! What’s even cooler than that, is that my daughters are best friends with her daughters, and I was able to photograph her son’s first birthday Elmo Cake Smash! When she told me that he loved Elmo, I just knew I had to set up the whole Sesame Street Crew! My husband even made the Sesame Street sign with the lamp! And of course, this delicious cake that he is eating is from Lily Gray Sweets, who always comes through with an amazing cake!
He had his eyes on my red ottoman from the moment he entered my studio! He was drumming the entire time! Maybe he has some music in his future! To keep him occupied while trying to get some really nice portraits, I showed him one of my childhood toys, my wooden Radio Flyer Row Cart! He even got to ride on the Morgan Ace Flyer, but that’s just a really cool prop I picked up in my many travels of prop hoarding! (haha, seriously, I have way too many props!)
So we did have some Sesame Street playing on a phone, but shh don’t tell anyone! It’ll be our little secret! Just pretend he is actually smiling at me! He did however, love hanging out with his family. They had matching shirts, done by the lovely Tia of Tia Crafty Creations! They all had matching shirts on and looked fabulous rocking Elmo! I have to say, Elmo is pretty cool!

If you read my blog, you know I was SO excited to photograph my cousin’s maternity session. Well, her sweet baby girl made her appearance shortly after and is absolutely stunning! She looks just like a baby doll! I was so happy she chose me to photograph her little one when there are so many other amazing photographers in NJ. Being a Newborn Photographer near Atlantic County NJ had made my life so much more amazing, because I get to meet happy little babies and take beautiful images of them. Of course I love when they are awake and bright eye’d, it’s so much easier when they are fast asleep in dreamland. Miss Emma was awake for most of the session, but she fell fast asleep toward the end, and I was able to capture beautiful images of her while she was sound asleep. The beautiful headbands you see I made myself, which I am so proud of, except for the jeweled on at the end, that was mine and I thought she needed some princess bling. Emma’s nursery is purples, so I thought this beautiful mauve would be a great addition to her walls. Not too bright, but perfectly neutral to showcase all of her gorgeous features.
