First Birthday fun!


Once again, thank you so much for choosing me as your photographer when it comes to capturing such a fun milestone. These sessions are one of my top favorites!


I like to first start the session with just baby and an outfit of your picking. We'll capture his or her sweet personality and little details that make your baby who they are. Crawling, walking, standing, just depending on where they are at. Each session will look different, just depending on how your baby

reacts to it. I'll play some fun music to get them going, but I encourage mom to dance around and be silly with me, to get your little one in a happy mood.


Please make sure baby has had a meal or a good snack before arriving to the studio. This will ensure baby is happy, full and ready for some fun. Bringing a favorite snack along and drink is also a good idea for pick me ups in the middle of photos.


After all, food makes everyone happy!

Sugar Rush!


After spending about 20 mins on the first half of the session, we'll spend the remainder capturing baby eating cake!

Baby can stay in the same outfit or change into a cake eating outfit.


This part looks different with every baby. Some babies are more reserved, while others dig in and don't even bother using their hands. H A H A!


Babies usually don't eat much sugary foods by this age, so this is a big experience for them. I like to use naked cakes for these photos with white icing. This will allow baby to consume less of the real sugary parts and also from getting overwhelmed in a bunch of icing on their hands. The white icing won't stain clothing or skin and no dye consumption to worry about. If you'd like to bring babies favorite snack along, we could also use those to stick into the cake just in case baby is not interested or needs a little help digging into the cake.


Please bring a hand towel that we can wet and a large towel to dry off baby. Wipes and some clean clothes to change into.

Your baby may need to drink milk, water or a juice afterwards, so please bring their cup along.




Looking forward to document this fun milestone for you. If you need to get a hold of me for any reason or need help deciding on outfits, please feel free to reach me directly at 713.202.5995.


See you soon!
