Birthday Bash

Birthday Bash Sessions


It’s time to celebrate! The first year sure does fly by. There isn’t anything much cuter than a baby’s first encounter with cake. Sometimes they laugh, sometimes they cry, and I capture it all in the cake smash session. If you want a special celebration for your little one’s second birthday or you would prefer an alternative to cake, you may be interested in a paint splash session! I provide the canvas and the paint, and you take home a precious keepsake. Have something else in mind for a birthday bash session? Shoot me a message and let’s start planning!


What to expect:

Birthday bash sessions are held in studio and typically last 1-2 hours. We will begin with a portrait session in a dress outfit followed by a cake smash or paint splash. Portrait sessions and cake smash sessions may be held on-site, outdoors, weather permitting. A variety of clothing options are provided for use during your portrait session. A deeper look into the clothing options can be found on the studio page.


Cake smash sessions include a small cake (no food allergies), banner, and decorations.  Attire for cake smash sessions is typically a cloth diaper, diaper cover, bloomers, tutu, or lace romper. A small selection of these will be available for wear during the session, but often parents have a special outfit in mind that they prefer to use. Session theme and details will be discussed at pre consultation.


Paint splash sessions include paint supplies and a keepsake canvas of your little one’s paint splash masterpiece. A solid white outfit will be provided for use during the session.


What’s included:

  • Custom in-home design consultation prior to the session.
  • 1-2 hour session held in studio (includes option of on-site outdoor session in a natural setting for portraits or cake smash).
