First birthday portraits Paris themed

Gorgeous baby girls first birthday portraits with a Paris themed cake smash. Cake smash sessions are perfect for first birthdays! Before letting her dig into her cake we took some more formal first birthday portraits on my peachy floral wall backdrop. Her gorgeous dress her mom brought is from Zolindu, the detail on this dress is simply breath taking. She looks like a little princess! Next we let her dig into her extra large cupcake on the Paris themed set up. This is one of my favorite backdrops I have, it’s so girly and whimsical. Her cake smash dress is also a popular dress from Amazon, many of my clients have purchased this dress for their sessions! It comes in a few different styles with long sleeve, tank style, long skirt or short skirt, and many different colors.

Newborn Photos of baby Jojo

Newborn photos of baby Jojo and family. I was so excited when this momma reached out to me to capture her newest addition! I had the honor of photographing big sister’s first birthday cake smash a few years ago and wow has she gotten so big, and look at her beautiful curls! Little sis is so loved by her big sis, I know they are going to grow into the best of friends. Sweet baby J was such a dream baby to photograph, she loved being swaddled up and cozy and gave me the best snuggles! I’ll admit, baby snuggles are a big perk of the job 🙂

Newborn photos are ideal in the baby’s first 2 weeks of life, it is recommended to secure availability early! I am currently filling up July & August 2021 due dates. More info on booking can be found here.

Hartland WI Newborn Photographer – Baby O

Kendall is a Hartland, WI Newborn Photographer that specialized in capturing the milestones of baby’s first year. I love everything about photographing baby change over their first year, it is so fun watching their personalities develop. Baby O here is already full of personality, he gave me a run for my money when he peed all over me during a wrap change! He also liked to crack his eyes open to check on everything but slept so soundly between those little eye peeks. I love all the sleepy poses but I do enjoy getting a few awake shots as well. Being the 3rd baby he is so spoiled with love from his family and his siblings just adore him so very much! I have always loved seeing families in awe over their newest additions, and older siblings excitement is just the most heart melting thing to me!

Lake Country Newborn Photographer

Baby O’s newborn session was such a breeze! Seeing M turn into a big sis reminds me I have been a Lake Country Newborn Photographer for almost 6 years! Big sis was one of my first newborn clients in my first year of business, it’s crazy how fast time flies when you love what you do. It is always such an honor when clients come back with their second baby and I get to continuing capturing their family grow. I already can’t wait to see these girls again in 6 months! We stuck with mostly neutrals for baby O’s session, she slept so soundly and was such a snuggler. One of the best parts of my job is getting to snuggle all the babies! You would think being around babies so much would “cure” my baby fever but honestly I don’t know if that will ever go away.

Cake smash photography with floral milk bath

Little Miss M enjoyed a hot air balloon themed cake smash and floral milk bath for her first birthday photos session! She had so much fun celebrating her first birthday with a cake smash session at my Hartland, WI studio. I really enjoy creating unique set ups for each baby, this little ones momma requested a pastel hot air balloon set and we think this came out beautifully. The cake from Sally’s Sweet Shoppe in Gennesse Depot smelt (and I’m assuming tasted) as good as it looks! I adore the ombre pastels colors and fluffy cloud design on this cake, it matched perfectly with the set up and M’s adorable little peachy pink dress. Momma also requested a floral milk bath that baby M loved hanging out in, and then had so much fun splashing around!
