Cedarburg, WI Cake Smash Photographer

I can’t wait to see the look on your little ones’ face during their cake smash photos.

Can I be honest? I’m known for my newborn photos but I have a special love for my cake smash photo shoots. They combine my love of planning - I am ready and willing to talk about theme ideas for hours! - with my obsession with documenting those milestones that matter.

^^ Kind of like when you have your second child and you are worried you can’t possibly love them as much as your first, but then you do. That’s how I feel about cake smash photos.

Cake Smashes

If you are waiting for a permission slip to get very, very extra as you celebrate this milestone, you’ve found the right cake smash photographer. I’m willing to get a little extra on almost any occasion, but your baby’s first birthday is a BIG DEAL. Let’s capture it in style!

Whether you want a simple backdrop with a balloon garland, or you want to go all out with a theme (think Mermaid, Wild One, Winter One-derland…let’s get creative!), I'm here to care for every detail – including sourcing props and decor for your chosen theme – while you enjoy these moments with your child.

Cake smash sessions are typically scheduled for 10AM or 2PM and take place inside my studio, located in Cedarburg, WI.

You made it a whole year, mama!

Your cake smash photos mark the end of the first year, and the beginning of many, many new adventures.

During the photo shoot, I will be ready to cheer your baby on and encourage him/her to smash the cake (and have fun with it!). You can do the same, or you can relax on the couch in my studio – whatever makes you feel comfortable!

If you love the idea of a cake smash but want something a little extra, a “splash” session after your cake smash is the perfect addition. It’s basically a little bath after your little one is covered with cake. It’s always a huge hit (and leads to the cutest photos!). The best part- its included in ALL of my cake smashes!

You'll receive your gallery within 3 weeks of our session. You'll get to choose if you'd like to stick with your current collection- or upgrade to more digitals and print credit. There's a lovely store with heirloom products to choose from to display your images to enjoy them in your home
