One year cake smash sessions are designed with minimal props to keep the focus on baby.  We will customize your session during our pre-planning process and you will be able to choose colors, theme etc.  Smash cakes are not provided by photographer.   I do have several cake stands that you can use.


A session agreement and invoice to pay session retainer will be sent to you via email.  Sessions are scheduled after the session agreement and session retainer is received.  Your session date is then scheduled on my calendar.  Studio sessions take place in my Troy, Michigan studio.  Outdoor sessions are also available. Booking 3 months in advance is recommended to ensure availability.


Sessions are styled via online questionnaire.   You will receive a Wardrobe Guide to help plan wardrobe for your baby’s portrait session, along with tips and links to actual stores I recommend for easy ordering & our new Styling Tool to help pick outfits and links to order.  I have a few outfits that are 12 month sized in my Client Closet.


Skin retouching, such as blemish removal and tone correction is included to give skin a natural, polished look to the images you choose.  Additional editing should be discussed in advance of your final product creation.

“We booked Melissa for our newborn's first photos and after the session we knew we would never go anywhere else! We had all our baby's milestone sessions captured by her and each session was so amazing! We have great photos to document our baby's first year and we were sad how quick the year went by! We will be back for family photos!"
