Butterfly Cake Smash with VA Cake Smash Photographer

Oh, Ava! How are you ONE already sweet girl?! I can’t believe I did Ava’s cake smash this winter and it was nice to have some bright, spring colors in the studio for her smash while it was freezing outside! It’s so hard to believe she’s one now considering I did her newborn portraits – these full-circle moments are some of my favorites (definitely a reason I encourage clients to think about being a client for life!). 

Ava’s parents didn’t have a specific theme in mind, but chose a few colors they really loved. As I started pulling colors, I realized a spring butterfly theme would be perfect! I just love making those sweet little butterflies for the backdrop!! We actually wound up doing a second shoot because Ava wasn’t too into her session the first time! But luckily she was in better spirits the second time around and we got some super cute photos of the birthday girl! 

Cake smashes can be designed for any theme you can imagine! These photos are great for birthday party invitations or thank you cards. And honestly, they’re just fun for your baby! Who doesn’t want to enjoy a cake on their birthday?! Don’t forget I’m offering a reduced sitting fee on cake smashes booked this summer with themes off of my bucket list!

Winter Birthday Celebration | Virginia Children’s Photographer

Mavis! How are you possibly a year old? I was so excited to welcome Mavis to the studio to celebrate her first birthday – especially since I photographed her newborn portraits when she came last February. It was so good to see her and her mother again for our first birthday portraits. Instead of a cake smash, Mavis’s mother decided to do some fun milestone portraits. We decided to go with a winter rustic inspired session and I had a great time designing her set.

Mavis was a blast during her session, laughing and smiling at me! She certainly made my job very easy!! I can’t get enough of her smile – even now. Birthday celebrations don’t have to be about a cake smash if you don’t want! These sweet babies still have fun just playing around in the studio and you have some adorable portraits to celebrate with.  

Happy birthday, Mavis!

Bryson's One Year Milestone Session | Fredericksburg VA Children's Photographer

Sweet little Bryson came back to visit me for his Big ONE birthday pictures! Im always so amazed at how fast the first year flys by! It felt like just yesterday mom was bringing him into my studio in his little carrier, Bryson's newborn sessions was one of my favorite from 2017 which incorporated the Teepee that became the famous prop after his session. It was so fitting that his first birthday theme was cowboys and Indians and we got to reuse the teepee and really see how much he has grown in a year!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Bryson's Session!

Pink and Gold Boho Cake Smash | Fredericksburg VA Cake Smash Photographer

Boho/Teepee Cake Smash

This is one style/theme I hope doesn't go out of style for a while! I just love the naked cake paired with natural elements like lace , florals and greenery! I had a blast creating this setup! I made the Teepee with lace and added florals  greenery and more florals! You can never have too many flowers right? I tend to usually do more bold and very themed cake smashed but i love these simple girly ones, they are so beautiful! Its like the saying less is more! Now i will warn you.. looking through these images Sweet Joey's smile is contagious lol! But I'm also happy to say that Joey is another returning client! Little Joey came to me for her newborn session and I loved how we kept the colors similar with the soft pinks and girly theme! Enjoy some of my favorites from the session!

Blue + Grey Cake Smash | Fredericksburg VA Cake Smash Photographer

Gentleman Cake Smash!

Does it get any cuter then a little man in a suit and bowtie? Most my cake smashes include diaper covers and pointed party hats, but not for this classy stud! We opted for a full 3 piece suit including a bowtie and bowl hat to top off the whole outfit!! He was such a gentleman at the ripe ole age of 1!! Ladies you better watch out because this little cutie is going to be a charmer when he gets older!! I seriously loved every image from his session but I did my best to narrow it down to my top favorites! Enjoy!!!

Gio's First Year | Fredericksburg VA Newborn, Baby + Cake Smash Photographer

Gio Turns ONE

  I seriously can not believe how fast this first year went by! I just adore capturing memories for my clients throughout their child's first year! Its so exciting to watch them go from swaddles to crawling to sitting up and walking! Little Gio was such a stud muffin and I looked forward to seeing him the studio every 3 months! 

Another part I love about doing the milestones aside from watching the cute babies grow is to also get to know the parents even more! I love knowing my clients are more then clients they are friends! Enjoy some of my favorites from Gio's 1st year!!!
