New Jersey children's birthday and cake smash photographer

Birthday sessions are an absolute blast, especially when paired with an adorable cake smash, promising an overload of fun! Capturing these extraordinary milestones is my specialty and something I truly adore. My full-service package covers everything, from minimalist to theme-based setups and even the cake. All you need to bring is yourself or adorable child and up to three of your favorite outfits. I accommodate both in-studio and outdoor birthday shoots, covering from the 1st through to the 30th birthday, even offering coverage for the birthday celebration itself.

My studio is located in Hamilton NJ and available by appointment only
