Michelle and I have been planning this NJ birthday photos and cake smash session for quiet some time. I have photographed Michelle, Mark and little Mason since he was still in mommy’s belly and they have become one of my favorite families. You can see their maternity session here. Michelle and Mark are such an amazing people and Mason is just a sweetheart with the cutest smile and dimples! Michelle had 2 ideas when it came to Mason’s cake smash. Since both of them were equally great, it was very hard to decide which one to chose so we’ve waited to the last minute and finally decided to got with simple and clean set up.
My birthday packages come with birthday photo session followed by a cake smash session. I have also added a bath session to the end for anyone who is interested. We’ve decided to do all 3 for Mason and I think bath was his favorite:) The whole session was amazing and I had a blast celebrating Mason’s birthday. Happy 1st birthday little man!
Michelle was always a fan of clean and simple set ups and that’s what we’ve decided to do with Mason’s birthday photos. I have a collection of cute children outfits which match perfectly with my backdrops and set ups. I chose a little rustic brown and a navy blue for Mason’s photos and added few props as well. Birthday session is definitely not completed without a number 1 prop 🙂
For the cake smash part of the session , Michelle decided to keep it clean and simple. Light blue and ivory and the main focus on Mason. Michelle ordered an amazing smash cake from one of my favorite bakers Blue Sheep Bake Shop. Her cakes are not only a work of art but th are beyond delicious (trust me, I lick my fingers a lot during the session 🙂 . Mason loved his cake and had a great time playing and licking the frosting.
The session ended up with a bubble bath completed with a yellow rubber duckie . Mason had a great time splashing and playing in the water and Michelle was able to take her baby home all nice and clean 🙂
Review From Michelle:
“I wanted to write to you and take a moment just to thank you for being able to capture this past year of special moments for my family and I. From the maternity session, to newborn, christmas, 6 month, family session and then his 1 year pictures, I honestly couldn’t have had a better person to capture these moments. You truly are an amazing photographer and I hope that you will continue to capture our [crazy] family in the future! Thank you so much again, you are the best, and great to work with :)”
