Race Car Cake Smash Photoshoot | Enzo’s 1st Birthday

Enzo celebrated his first birthday in style with a race car cake smash photoshoot! Enzo’s momma owns a party decor business, and she always brings such fun and creative elements. We started the session focusing on just baby, and ended with some tub shots to wash off all that frosting! 😉 Happy 1st birthday, Enzo!

Strawberry Themed First Birthday Photoshoot | Riverside Baby Photographer

I loved meeting beautiful little Poiema and her momma for a photoshoot to celebrate her upcoming 1st birthday. Poiema looked absolutely adorable in her strawberry dress and red chucks, which made for some extra cute portraits. I definitely need to do more strawberry themed birthday photoshoots in the future – SO CUTE!

Sweetest little babe | Escondido Newborn Photographer

After moving to California a couple of years ago, starting from scratch with everything was daunting. One of the many professionals I had to find was a new hairstylist. Fortunately, I found Carmelita, who is not only super talented but always fun to chat with too. I was so excited when she asked me to photograph her sweet new baby boy, Marciano. He is a total dream baby! I’m so glad they made the drive from Escondido to my home studio in Menifee for his photos.
As a newborn photographer, there is no greater honor than being entrusted with capturing a family’s newest addition. My goal is to create images that capture the essence of this special time in a family’s life. Every family is so special and I’m so glad I got to work this new little family!

Graham’s 1st Birthday Photoshoot! | Southern California Cake Smash Photographer

I was so excited to see cutie Graham and his family again after getting to photograph Graham as a newborn last year. I loved that his momma specifically requested black and white portraits. Black and white portraits have a timeless quality, and, as the great Canadian photographer Ted Grant said, “When you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls.” 1

Graham has the most stunning eyes and the cutest cheeks! I loved capturing his expressions and photographing his cake smash experience.

As a photographer specializing in baby and child photography, I understand the importance of capturing those precious moments that will be cherished for a lifetime. Whether it’s a newborn’s first photoshoot or a child’s first birthday, I strive to create beautiful and timeless portraits that will be treasured for years to come.

Birthday Boy | Murrieta Cake Smash Photographer

Celebrate Your Baby’s 1st Birthday with a Cake Smash Photoshoot!

It was such a treat to meet this dapper little birthday boy and his beautiful family! He was a little unsure of the cake, but so photogenic and fun. A little tub time was the perfect way to end the session.

Your baby’s first birthday is a special milestone that deserves to be celebrated in a memorable way. What better way to capture this moment than with a cake smash photoshoot? Emily Menzie Photography offers cake smash photoshoots that are both fun and beautiful.

If you’re interested in celebrating your baby’s 1st birthday with a cake smash photoshoot, I would love to hear from you. I’ll work with you to create a unique and personalized experience that you and your family will cherish forever.

Here are some tips to help you prepare for your baby’s cake smash photoshoot:

  • Choose a theme: You can choose a theme that reflects your baby’s personality or interests. Some popular themes include floral, rustic, and Wild One (Where the Wild Things Are).
  • Pick a cake: The cake is the centerpiece of the photoshoot, so choose a cake that looks beautiful and tastes delicious. You can either make the cake yourself or order one from a bakery.
  • Dress up your baby: Dress your baby in a cute outfit that matches the theme of the photoshoot. You can also add some accessories like a hat or a bowtie. I’ve got tons of crowns, headbands, and outfits for baby girls too.
  • Be prepared for a mess: Cake smash photoshoots can get messy, but I’ll take care of the mess! You’ll only need to clean up your baby, and your baby will have the option to end the session in my little baby tub to wash off the frosting and play.

Kamila turned 6 months old! | Beaumont baby photographer

Kamila is a natural in front of the camera, and I feel so lucky to have captured her at 2 months and 6 months old. Her eyes are so stunning and she is just as gorgeous as can be! At the time I’m finally getting around to writing about her 6 month photoshoot, she has actually turned 7 months old, but even though I’m late in writing this it’s always worth it to document adorable photos.


I feel so fortunate to work with clients from all over Southern California, including Menifee (where my studio is located), Murrieta, Temecula, San Diego, Orange County, Riverside, MoVal (Moreno Valley), Beaumont and beyond. If you’re looking to hire a baby photographer near you, please get in touch!

Amelia – 4 months old | Baby Milestone Package

I am thrilled to have Amelia on my Baby Milestone Package plan and I am looking forward to capturing her growth throughout her first year. She is such a happy and smiley baby and so absolutely beautiful!

If you are looking for a baby photographer, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I would love to customize a plan for your baby’s first year milestones and document their growth and development.
It’s truly amazing to see how much babies change during their first year. That’s why it’s so important to capture these moments in photographs. Not only do baby milestone photos make for timeless keepsakes, but they also allow you to hold onto memories that can seem fleeting as they pass. You’ll be grateful to have these memories to look back on as your little one continues to grow.

Princess Leia’s Photos | Menifee Newborn Photographer

What a fitting name for such a perfect little princess! Leia was a dream to photograph, both awake and asleep. At just over a week old, she kept staring straight at my camera when she was awake, but also slept for some of the sweetest sleepy shots. I also got to photograph her big sister and brother, and the three of them were so adorable together!

You’d never know from Leia’s sweet stare that newborns can actually only see clearly from about 8-15 inches away. They also are only awake for about 3 minutes per hour, on average. What an impressive little one! (Info cited from https://www.motherandbaby.co.uk/baby/baby-care/newborn-facts-trivia/)

My newborn sessions include the option to include parents, siblings, and/or family shots. I highly recommend including these shots for a variety of reasons, not the least of which include: showing off how tiny your newborn is in comparison to parents/siblings. And of course, showing the precious new relationships forming with your new baby!
