Birthday & Cake Smash
Birthday portraits are a great way to celebrate your child’s milestones and preserve special memories of their birthday! We provide premier birthday photography in the Prosper, McKinney, Frisco and Celina area. These sessions are more commonly photographed in studio, however, we have done them on location. We photograph a composite of them holding the letters of their age, a chalkboard with age related fun facts and them standing or sitting next to an oversized number of their age.

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!
