The Cake Smash Experience

Walk into my studio and be met with a handmade backdrop, a matching outfit, a custom made cake and the celebration of a lifetime ready for your one year old. Enjoy the time watching your baby dig in to sweets and laugh. Then the fun continues in a sized down clawfoot bath tub. Let's not get frosting on your carseat!

Leave everything to me, even the cleanup. I will communicate with you via email in the days following the session. Images are ready for viewing in an online gallery within 48 hours of the session time. From beginning to end, the entire process is about your ease and convenience!

commemorate their first year with
memories you will cherish forever

Absolutely! Every single one of my Cake Smashes ends with a splash. Not only does it give you the cutest images, the tubby serves a very practical purpose. Wrangling a baby covered in frosting is no easy task. At least a rinse off with plain water will help with the process to go home! Think of it as a pre-soak before you can get baby in a real tub at home. 

I see a clawfoot bathtub in some gallery images. Does my baby get to splash in a tub too?

Not to worry, every session starts with clean portraits of your baby. I prepare a few outfit options so you're able to choose an outfit for the portraits and then an outfit for the smash, or you can opt to use the same outfit in both. 

I love the Cake Smash Pictures, but I want clean pictures too. How does that work?

Yes,  of course! For only $100 more you are welcome to take family portraits prior to the Cake Smash. It only adds about 10 minutes to your session time and is the easiest way to quickly update your professional family portrait. This image will be taken on a solid color with no balloons so it will be a versatile image for any season or room in your home. 

I want family pictures too. Can we add that on?

Every theme you see on my website was chosen by my client. I customize absolutely everything based on your ideas, I've never repeated an exact theme twice! I've had some clients give me exact detail of what they'd like to see and I've had others just give me a cartoon character or a color scheme. How involved you are in the planning process is your decision. Know that I have it completely covered for you!

Can I pick the theme? Or is there a list to choose from?

Frequently Asked 


Don't be shy, let's talk about it! I'm so excited to hear your ideas and start building your vision from the ground up. No theme is too big, no color scheme too wild, I have worked with all sorts of ideas and created amazing things!

Start with an email and you'll end with beautiful artwork on your walls of your toddler. It's as easy as that! Let me take care of everything for you.

1. Say Hello

2. planning phase

Starting with your ideas, I'll order custom balloon colors, props, outfits and a cake all with you in mind. 

Typically I'll send you a photo of the setup before you come in to the studio so you'll be able to see the vision come to life. Any final tweaks can still happen up to the start of the session. 

3. day of the session

The day is finally here! Your little one gets to smash some cake and make a mess. Make sure you bring a few favorite snacks and a drink for them. Making sweet messes is thirsty work. Most babies take a drink break halfway through!

Clean birthday portraits will be captured first, followed by the fun smash session, then we'll bathe baby in the clawfoot tubby. I even have a rubber ducky ready for them to play with!

4. view your images

Within 48 hours, you will receive an email from me with your proofing images! This is where the real magic happens. Proofs are unedited versions of your potential selections. You get to look through, "ooh" and "aah" at your baby, then decide which Collection to purchase. 

If you have any questions, I am one email away! No question is silly, I'm here to help you through the process.

5. ordering and final delivery

After you have selected your final images from the proofing gallery, I will go back and fully edit those images. Within two weeks, another gallery will be sent your email with your high resolution photos, ready to share with friends and family.

Then finally, the big moment you've been waiting for! A package arrives in the mail with your baby's artwork in it. Now you get to decorate your home with the lasting memories of your little tot!

Anxiously await your mailman after you order artwork through your photo gallery. Once it arrives, it's time to place your child's masterpiece in a perfect place of your home. It'll be awesome to show these heirlooms to your grandchildren!

"I had the opportunity to shoot my maternity photos with Elizabeth! We connected on Facebook and after just a couple messages she immediately knew my vision. During my shoot I used flowers to cover my chest. Elizabeth ensured I was comfortable and everything stayed covered for the photos. When I received my gallery, I was surprised! The photos came out even better than I imagined! I will forever have amazing photos of such a special moment in my life. Thank you!"

"Elizabeth was amazing!!! She made me feel so comfortable and at ease. And What's more, she put my other kids at ease!! They were kinda weirded out by everything, but she had them laughing and posing in no time at all!! And the final pictures. My gosh, the final pictures were amazing! I'm printing all of them out, putting them in frames and hanging them all over our house. Thank you for being so amazing and helping to create amazing memories for us!!"

"My family and I have been getting pictures taken by Elizabeth for the last 4 years. She’s taken my maternity photos, Christmas, Easter, first birthdays, newborn, milk bath, you name it. We have always been more than pleased with the outcome and overall quality of our pictures. Elizabeth is amazing to work with and is so patient. It is always nothing but a pleasure to get pictures done by her! Highly recommend!"

"Elizabeth is always quick in answering any and all questions about booking, outfits, color schemes, locations, etc. I am always amazed in how hard and quick she works to get our galleries to us after each session.  

Elizabeth has made dreams come true that I didn’t even know I had when capturing the beauty in my family photos. The work she has done for us over the years is an absolute treasure that we are so grateful for. Massachusetts is losing one of the best photographers and Texas is lucky to gain her.”

"If I were asked to describe Liz in three words, I would choose the following: professional, poised and patient. She is the absolute best at what she does. She carries herself with more grace and empathy than I've seen in most other human beings. And she never fails to astound with her loving nature. Liz has been photographing my family since my my daughter was born in 2018. I trust her not only to handle my children with loving hands and encouraging words, but to capture the memories that we want to hold onto forever. As one of her Massachusetts clients, I will truly miss having her be this person for my family. Texas, you are VERY lucky to have her!"

"Elizabeth is truly amazing and fun to work with. As soon as you meet her, it honestly feels like you have known her for a lifetime. She prides herself on her relationships with her clients. Elizabeth is so patient and kind with my two little ones who can definitely be a handful. She is flexible with her scheduling to make sure she doesn’t interfere with nap time. We have done multiple sessions with her including, newborn, 6 month, cake smash/1yr, and sibling pictures. She has a very quick turnaround time in comparison to other photographers I have worked with in the past. I would absolutely recommend Elizabeth to anyone and everyone!!"

"I can not say enough incredible things about Elizabeth. She has photographed my family since my oldest son was 7 months old, from sitter sessions, to cake smashes to newborn sessions as our family grew. She perfectly captures the beauty of our children, working with tough toddlers and tough babies! You’d never know my baby was fussy 98% of her session. Elizabeth’s attention to detail, and safety is something you can’t pass up. when booking a (newborn) photographer. She is AMAZING!"

"She specializes in newborn and maternity and does so much more. At her studio she was so patient with little Jaxson as he fussed, pooped, and cried during his photo session I couldn't believe the time and patience it truly takes for all of the poses. DEFINITELY recommend her for any photography needs."
