Our Birthday & Cake Smash
Cake smash photography is the best way to both enjoy and preserve your child’s yearly milestones. Natalie Roberson Photography provides premier children’s portrait photography in the Prosper, McKinney, Frisco, and Celina areas. Parents generally prefer cake smash sessions to be done in the studio, although we can do these on location. We can create a beautiful composite photograph of the child’s with the number of their age. They can stand or sit beside a giant number of their age, or they can hold a board or chalkboard with their age number and fun facts about them.
Natalie Roberson Photography’s work is known for the experience she creates. She is so personable around her clients, leaving a lasting impression, for both her work and her approach. You can see her clients’ impressions on social media and online platforms; in fact, she has over 700 positive reviews!

This is a fun way to celebrate the milestone of your baby’s first birthday. If you give a baby cake, it ends up all over him anyway. So why not have fun with it and capture your baby in all his messy glory! Cake smashing photography is a fun way to capture all of the excitement of birthday milestones!
Choose an outfit for cake smash photos that will not stain easily or one that you will not mind throwing away afterward since many icing colors stain clothing easily. Therefore, look for something cute but inexpensive. The simplest and easiest idea is to dress the baby in only her diaper! However, the photographers at Natalie Roberson Photography do recommend accessories, like headbands and necklaces for girls, or caps and suspenders for boys. Whatever you decide for your cake smash photography, dress your baby in colors that complement the colors of the cake.
If possible, give your baby a cupcake with frosting at home a few days before your cake smash photography session. Some babies have never tasted super-sweet frosting or aren’t used to the idea of getting messy. A trial run in advance gives babies the chance to experience these things for the first time at home which can translate to a better experience on the day of the cake smash photography session. Bring a (dishwasher-safe/easy to clean) toy to the cake smash photo session if you think it will increase your baby’s interest in the cake!
