Kennedy’s 1st birthday cake smash

Kennedy’s 1st birthday cake smash was full of her gorgeous smiles and beautiful brown eyes! She was so happy and joyful through every moment, even with a bit of a mishap with the cake at the end. Her personality is every bit as beautiful as she is, and I loved meeting her and her parents.

1st Birthday Cake Smash Photography

Cake smash photography is such a special way to celebrate a baby’s first birthday! A lot of families love to display these photos at their baby’s first birthday party, or simply as a way to commemorate this precious milestone.

A typical cake smash photo session consists of:

  • Pre-cake portraits: I love to capture baby’s portraits and personality and do a few different setups before bringing out the cake!
  • Cake smash: The main event where the baby gets to dig in to the cake! Some babies absolutely love it while others are more timid, but that’s the beauty of every session…getting to see baby’s personalities and curiosity shine through!
  • Clean-up: This can include some cute photos with baby playing in a little tub — babies usually love this part the most!

When planning a cake smash session, consider the following tips:

  • Choose a theme or color scheme that complements your baby’s personality or birthday party decor.
  • I recommend light or white cakes with whipped cream frosting or “naked” frosting. Buttercream tends to be a bit sticky and difficult for babies to swallow.
  • Be prepared for mess! Bring extra clothes for both the baby and yourself.

I have a variety of outfits, headbands, banners, cake stands, cake toppers, and balloons, and clients are always welcome to bring anything to make their session unique. Personally, I prefer to keep things simple to truly focus on the baby, but I’m always happy to discuss client’s wishes for their baby’s first birthday photos! After all, babies only turn one once…make it special with a 1st birthday photoshoot!

Viviana’s 6 month photos

I’ve had the privilege of capturing Viviana’s growth from newborn, to 3 months, to 6 months old. It has been a blast to document these precious milestones for her family. Her 6 month session was an extra quick session, and she packed it full with her adorable personality and expressions. I’m behind on blogging as I write this and it has already been over a month since her 6 month session so I guess she’s just over 7 months old now — time flies way too fast!

Whether you’re interested in a one-time session or a baby plan to document your child’s first year, I’m here to create beautiful, timeless images you’ll cherish for years to come.

Yailene’s 6 month photoshoot | Murrieta baby photographer

Beautiful little Yailene’s 6 month photoshoot was an absolute delight! I highly recommend a 6 month session to capture this extra sweet and happy stage during baby’s 1st year. Many babies have learned or are learning to sit up around this age (Yailene was a pro!) and at 6 months, a baby’s unique personality is shining through. It is such a fun, joyful age to capture.

I loved including family shots, and Yailene’s momma made excellent setup choices which highlighted Yailene’s cuteness perfectly. When booking a baby photoshoot with me, you have the freedom to customize every detail according to your vision. From backgrounds to baby’s wardrobe, I’m here to bring your ideas to life. The days are long but the years are short – schedule your baby’s photoshoot today!

Zoey’s Newborn Photoshoot | Perris Newborn Photographer

Zoey’s newborn photoshoot took place when she was just 12 days new. We had envisioned capturing lots of sweet sleepy photos, but this little one had other plans. Zoey was determined to soak in every moment, and seemed to know how adorable she is as she stared intently into my camera. She is such a photogenic baby girl!
If you’re looking for a newborn photographer in the Perris area, my home studio is located in Menifee and I serve clients throughout Southern California. In-home sessions are always available upon request too (travel fees may apply depending on distance).

In-studio Family Photos

As a photographer specializing in baby and newborn portraits, one of my greatest joys is capturing the love and connection between families. That’s why I always encourage clients to consider including family photos when booking their baby’s photoshoot session. I love doing in-studio family photos!
Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing my neighbors – the BEST family who welcomed a new addition a little over 6 months ago (check out his newborn photos here). During this session, I got to capture photos of the entire family together, brother photos, as well as individual portraits of baby Theo and big brother Benny.
If you’re considering booking a photoshoot for your baby, I highly recommend including family portraits. After all, having a new baby is a momentous time for the whole family to celebrate.
Book your session today, and let’s create cherished photos together!

Malia and McCoy’s 1st birthday | Twins Cake Smash Photos

What a fun experience it was to capture Malia and McCoy’s first birthday photos! Twins cake smash photos are truly double the fun. Malia is such a beautiful baby girl and McCoy is so cute with his big brown eyes. Their big brothers got to sneak in for some sibling photos too.

Capturing 1st birthday milestones is my jam! If you’re looking for a baby photographer in the Menifee area, from newborn to 1st birthday and everything in between, please reach out! I can’t wait to chat and capture some photos I hope you’ll treasure.

Newborn to 6 month photos | Southern California Baby Photographer

As a baby photographer, I’ve always been passionate about preserving the precious milestones during baby’s first year. Recently, I’ve introduced a complimentary mini 6 month session as a gift after newborn sessions. I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet boy for his newborn photos and I’m so glad his momma brought him back for 6 month photos! I loved to see how much he has grown and developed over the past few months, from sitting up to smiling with his new little teeth!

The first year passes by in the blink of an eye, and having tangible memories to look back on can be truly priceless. That’s why I’m so excited to offer this complimentary mini session to my newborn clients – to capture the incredible transformation that happens in those first sweet months of life.

D’Angelo 4 days new | Perris Newborn Photographer

Sweet little D’Angelo was just 4 days new at the time of his newborn photoshoot. As you might notice, there’s a certain pose in his gallery I don’t usually do because I normally do more baby-led posing, while this pose is a composite. His momma specifically requested it, and she knew how to assist me in capturing it safely, and I must say it turned out so adorable! I also loved the blues and greens his momma requested, which changed things up from my typical white and neutral backgrounds. The bold navy was an especially nice color for D’Angelo! His daddy was wearing a Dodgers jersey to the session and I knew it would be a favorite color for them. D’Angelo did so well and I laughed when he suddenly opened his eyes and looked at me like “ok I’ve been really good, are you done yet?!”.

If you’re looking for a Perris newborn photographer, I’m located in nearby Menifee and serve clients all around Southern California. Contact me to discuss your baby’s precious photos you’ll cherish for a lifetime!

Amelia’s Boho Cake Smash

Amelia’s first birthday photoshoot was a bit of a boho cake smash with lots of neutrals and earthy tones, and of course an overload of cuteness. Her momma had contacted me several months in advance to book Amelia’s very special 1st birthday session and I was so excited to finally meet this beautiful family! As it often goes with little ones, we never quite know what we’re going to get. I let them take the lead and snapped away. There were some tears, but also lots of the cutest smiles. We started off with family photos, then gave Amelia’s big brothers a break while capturing some parents & baby shots. I cycled through some of my cutest outfits and headbands to add to the variety, then completed her 1st birthday photos with a cake smash and some tub time. After a session packed with a little bit of everything, I hope I captured a gallery her family will cherish forever.

Beautiful Victoria | Family photos with a newborn

As I write this, I have “Victoria” by the Kinks stuck in my head, specifically the scene from How I Met Your Mother where Ted meets Victoria. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’re missing out (I love that show and have watched it many times, with and without my kids and husband who also love it). Anyway, steering away from a complete tangent and moving on to beautiful little Victoria’s newborn photos! I loved meeting her beautiful new little family. I strongly recommend doing family photos with a newborn photoshoot. These are photos I hope my clients will always treasure. In every session, and with every newborn photography package, I have clients fill out a questionnaire to let me know what photos they are hoping for. This includes allowing to capture family photos with baby, mom and baby, dad and baby, and sibling and baby shots (if baby has a sibling, of course).
