Milestones need to be captured. Littleness needs to be preserved. You know how fast our babies change, how quickly they grow, and how much we wish we could keep our babies small and in our arms forever. Life moves fast though, and those little creatures turn into big, messy, silly, incredible people faster than we'd like to admit. 

I love celebrating and freezing those precious milestones in my clients' lives because I know how valuable those memories are, and how fleeting they can be. At SMP, I offer several options for my families to choose from to ensure they have everything they need to truly hold on to those moments. From short, frequent mini sessions, to meticulously planned custom sessions, we can make it happen! All Cake Smash and Childhood Portrait sessions are All-inclusive sessions, meaning digital images are included in the session fee.







The Custom Cake Smash Experience is the pinnacle of (First) birthday celebrations! Most little ones have never tasted cake (though cake is not the only option for this fun session) and it is always exciting to see how they will respond to the sweet stuff! It includes a design consultation (either via phone or in person as the studio),  a custom matching cake (by signing this agreement you affirm the child being photographed has no allergies) or other prepared edible (think watermelon, spaghetti, fruit, cereal, parfaits, etc) for the session, a bubble bath, up to 1 hour of capture, and a private Gallery from which you can download your images. Included in the session fee is personal printing rights for your digital images up to 20x30 inches and corresponding web-optimized digital images. This fun session celebrates the completion of the first chapter and the excitement that is the next chapter in your little babe's life! You can book your session here!






Childhood portraits can be as simple as a 30 minute mini session with a handful of images to document your favorite little person or a themed/extended  (1 hr) session with enough images to tell your little one's story. The options truly are limitless with these sweet documentary style sessions, and you will be so glad you have these precious keepsakes for years to come. We can spend an evening at the park playing, building sand castles at the beach, or drawing with chalk in your front yard. These sessions are designed to capture your little one as they are, doing what they love. A traditional portrait or two will certainly be captured, but the bulk of your little one's session will be candid, just playing, and just being, as a child should! Please see session options below.
