Hudson Valley Cake Smash Photographer

Heirloom portraiture for mothers, babies & families

SERVING THE HUDSON VALLEY NEW YORK AREA - WESTCHESTER, ROCKLAND & NYC

CELEBRATE YOUR LITTLE LOVE'S 1st BIRTHDAY WITH A CUSTOM BIRTHDAY PORTRAIT EXPERIENCE!

The first year is like no other… in just a short time, your baby has grown into a mini person with a big personality and emerging independence. Cake smash sessions are a fun way to celebrate first or second birthdays with beautiful (and messy) portraits that you’ll cherish for years to come.

 I take care of everything… right down to the smallest details; all artistically designed and completely unique just for your little one’s special day

Your cake smash session is a curated experience. What that means is that I plan everything for you from start to finish - so you don't have to! We begin the session with traditional portraits and then we introduce the cake! After the cake we finish up the session with a few "tub time" portraits in an antique toddler sized claw foot bathtub! You’ll get to head home with a happy, squeaky clean little one and leave all the mess with me!

After a consultation to discuss your theme, your session will be uniquely designed with top-quality decor, a matching outfit, and a beautiful cake from a professional baker. 

Little one can't have cake? Don't worry! We can "smash" anything: doughnuts, pizza, fruit... you name it.

Due to the custom nature of these sessions, we typically book 4-6 weeks in advance. However, we know birthdays can sneak up on you, so please do reach out if it’s a last-minute request; I may have availability.

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY CAKE SMASH SESSION?


Cake smash sessions are best done 2-4 weeks before your child’s actual birthday, so you will have your images ready to share on their birthday. Alternatively, you can book your child’s cake smash session on their actual birthday, for an extra special birthday experience.


Cake smash sessions are usually booked at 10:00 am. Due to the custom nature of these sessions, we typically book 4-6 weeks in advance. It is best to secure your session 2-3 months in advance to ensure availability and allow time for me to design and create the set. However, we know birthdays can sneak up on you, so please do reach out if it’s a last-minute request; I may have availability.
