CHARLOTTE NC CAKE SMASH PHOTOGRAPHY

YOU are PRECIOUS in every way, the SUNSHINE in my day, the JOY in my soul, and the LOVE of my life

The First Year 'Birthday session' captures the one year milestone for your baby. Babies are crawling well, standing up, or may even be walking at this stage. Many parents like to celebrate with a cake smash.  Your baby's session will begin with dress up portraits. We’ll then change clothes into play clothes, introduce the cake, and let the messy fun begin. I’ll capture their faces filled with fun as they discover the tastes and textures of their very own cake. A warm bubble bath, in a specially designed child tub, is the perfect way to end the session. Little ones love to splash around in the bubbles creating endless smiles to capture.  Don't want the cake smash or bubble bath?  No problem, it's totally optional.
