The Cake Smash Experience


A custom session is perfect if you are looking for something designed just for your child!  We work together to pick out colors and themes and I design a custom set just as unique as your loved one.  This session also includes a second simple setup of a solid backdrop and optional second outfit.  If doing a cake smash we will do a splash after the smash (aka a bath) at the end!


Congrats!  You survived your first year with a baby (woo hoo)! Whether you are a seasoned pro or first-time parent, this is such a fun and HUGE milestone for you and your baby!  What better wat to celebrate than smashing come cake!

When you arrive to my studio you will find a handmade setup that I've created just for your little one, a corresponding outfit to match the setup and a custom-made cake from a professional baker. I will welcome you to my studio, show you around and then we can begin the celebration! You can enjoy this time watching your little one dig in and have the time of their life! After all that smashing we get to splashing! I have a variety of adorable bath tubs which many times can be a fan favorite!  They will splash and play, i'll get some more adorable photographs all while getting cleaned up from all that cake!

Leave everything to me. The planning, the wardrobe and yes...even the cleanup!   My goal is to make this process an easy and stress free one. From first inquiry to gallery delivery, I work with you to plan the session of your dreams! I can't wait to provide you with memories that will last you a lifetime!

I offer simple and custom options, see below for more details!

The Process

We cannot recommend Laura enough as a newborn and family photographer! We were introduced to Laura’s pictures by a family member who had used her to photograph their family in the past. Immediately when we saw the pictures, she took for them we knew we wanted to book a newborn session with her! As first-time parents she made us feel so comfortable the entire length of the session. She photographed beautiful family pictures and then had our little guy pose for individual newborn pictures. She had such a calming and peaceful atmosphere in her studio and immediately made us all feel welcome. We felt as if Laura was someone we’d known for years and just met a few hours ago. We are so happy with how our pictures turned out and are so grateful to have these memories forever! We cannot wait to have Laura photograph our family again in the future!

Laura was so awesome to collaborate with & she really gave us our money’s worth. She captured all of the looks we dreamed up and much more. We left feeling like she gave us so much time without feeling rushed and so many more looks than most photographers give. In the end we were so happy with all of the pictures we got of our new baby & family. Highly recommend!!

We had a wonderful experience with Laura....twice! She did an in-home newborn session for us two years ago and just recently photographed our new family of four in her beautiful, comfortable studio in Lansdale. Laura is truly a baby whisperer! She is calm and patient and makes the stress of getting a family ready for a photo shoot a few days after giving birth totally worth it. She puts thought into your session with outfits, colors, and set ups based upon a questionnaire. She sends your gallery in a timely fashion and you won't be disappointed with the images she captures.

We had a great experience with Laura yesterday for our daughters one-year photos/cake smash. Her set up was absolutely amazing and what I envisioned it would be. She was able to take my thoughts and completely put them into reality. Laura was so amazing with our daughter, who is incredibly active and never wants to stay still.

Laura did my daughters 1st birthday cake smash shoot. My daughter was a little unsure at first and was sort of fussy but after Laura gave her some of her props and was warm and welcoming, my daughter opened up quickly! She ended up smiling and even trying the cake during the photo shoot which she had not done at her actual party! Laura got amazing shots of her and Laura is quick which is important with a baby :) I would recommend!!
