ONE IS FUN!! First Birthday sessions are SO much fun. Babies have so much personality at this age and I just love capturing their silliness as well as their guarded and intrigued expressions. I recommend doing a cake smash session between 10 months and 13 months of age. Let me know if you have a particular theme or color scheme in mind and I can help you design a custom fun backdrop and set for your session. I have many banners, tissue poms poms and pennant flags we can us to decorate your set. Some theme I have done or would love to do are Baseball, Unicorn, Donut, Barnyard, Twinkle Little Star, Tiffany’s, Rainbow, Cinco de Mayo, 4th of July, Rangers, Princess, Twincess, Pink Lemonade, Wonder Woman. The sky is the limit with Cake Smash Themes! Fruit Smash, Strawberry Smash, and Watermellon smashes are also a great cake smash alternative.
Don’t worry if you prefer not to do a cake smash or it is not possible due to an allergy. We can still do a fun one year portrait session. See my baby portrait gallery for more photos.

Do you offer a “Baby Plan” or a “Grow with Me” plan?
Yes, I do. I offer both a mini-session and a full session plan which include Newborn, 6 month/sitter and One Year/Cake Smash sessions. Contact me here for details. You can even add additional milestone sessions at 3 months and 9 months.
Here is what some past clients are saying…
I booked Christine for my sons 1st birthday cake smash based on a recommendation from a friend. Days after the session after seeing a teaser, I immediately booked my sons Christmas photos. She just has a way with him and her photos bring out and capture his personality so well. She will be our family photographer for years to come. I am so glad I found her!! ~Stephanie
Loved working with Christine. Took the cutest pics of my then 1year old who was a Valentine’s day baby. She took the theme and ran with it. Very accommodating and detailed. ~Sandra G.
Christine Melissa photographed my daughter’s cake smash and it was such a fun experience. She helped me style the set to my daughter’s birthday colors and it turned out beautiful. She even edited a few photos before the party so I could display them and everyone loved them. She was so sweet and patient with my little girl and I can’t wait till our next session with her. ~ Ellen J.
