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!

I love babies, I especially love 1 year old babies. They’re so full of life, and happy, and they’ve developed their own little personality! Some are quiet and shy, and others are fast moving and all giggles! I never know what is going to walk through my door (literally!). Some walk, some just aren’t there yet. If you are looking for First Birthday Portraits in Galloway NJ, then we are the company for you! One of my favorite sessions to date is little Miss Nora. She is so pretty, and inquisitive. She inspected the entire set, and wasn’t quite sure of my camera, even though I’ve photographed her quiet a few times. I love watching my clients grow up. I can’t wait to see how she blossoms next year!
Sometimes a cake smash just isn’t what a client wants, and that’s totally okay! Birthday portraits are just as amazing! I still design the set, and we just have a less messy set up. This set up is one of my favorites as well. The white netting, the rustic letters, the beautiful flowers and gorgeous backdrop! It is just so dainty, perfect for her First Birthday Portraits in Galloway NJ!

If you are thinking about booking a Cake Smash Photo Session, just do it! They can be super elaborate or they can be very simple. I am so happy with this cake smash. Mostly because it’s my son! He lovessss Mickey Mouse, so of course I had to have a Vintage Mickey Mouse Cake Smash Photo Session. I didn’t want the bright colors, I wanted vintage film, and I wanted it to look very classic. I am pretty happy with out it turned out, and he LOVED his cake! (Which was from Shoprite in Galloway by the way!)
But before the cake, I always try for portraits. Sometimes they don’t go as planned and we have to bribe baby with something… In this cake, his favorite food – Cheerios! It made him perfectly happy, which we were able to keep him busy until we were ready to surprise him with his cake! Boy was he happy! He loved it and ended up eating HALF of this cake. He was so sleepy after and definitely slept like a bear!
I’d say he had a really good birthday and I will always remember his Vintage Mickey Mouse Cake Smash!

If you are located in South Jersey and looking for a Galloway Cake Smash Photographer, look no more, you’ve found the best one right here! I love everything about birthdays, especially the cake!
The babies, the themes, and even the messy cake are so much fun! It’s a celebration, like, “Hey look! Our baby turned ONE so we are celebrating by giving him his very own cake to smash and its going to be AMAZING!” and it is, every. single. time.
Like this R2D2 Cake Smash! What is not to love about this? We’ve seen Star Wars themes, and maybe even a Chewbacca theme. This cake is an R2D2 inspired plate of happiness made by his amazing Mama. So of course, he loved how it tasted, who doesn’t like a homemade cake?! I know I do! (I may have gotten some on my finger and I can say it’s good!) Also, I threw in the Chewbacca mask, because, well, why not!
Before the cake smash, well before ANY cake smash, we do ‘first birthday portraits’. I think it’s important to do these, well for one they aren’t covered in cake yet! And two, because it really gets the child used to being in front of the camera, because he (or she) will be the star of the show for 45-60 minutes. This is where they can warm up and get used to me documenting every move. The babies LOVE it!
My husband and I put in a few hours creating these custom boxes to look futuristic and Star Warsy. Yes, I said Star Warsy. Please don’t hate me, I’ve never ACTUALLY watched Star Wars. So, given my intergalactic lack of knowledge here, I think I did pretty darn well. Regardless of all of that, designing a set is one of my favorite things to do. Whether it’s an R2D2 set, or a pretty pretty princess set, I am up for the challenge! However , if you DO want an R2D2 Cake Smash, bring it on! I will be more than happy to design a brand new set for your little man (or little lady) thats custom to what you’re looking for!
