Let’s celebrate the extraordinary milestones in your child's life: joyful, heartfelt, and beautiful. I capture those big smiles, proud achievements, and playful moments. You’ll see the true spirit and growing personality of your child, and to me, that is pure perfection.

What is the difference between Smash cake photoshoots and Milestones


A smash cake session is a playful photo shoot where your child celebrates their first birthday by smashing and enjoying a small cake. I capture the fun, messy moments as your child enjoys the cake, resulting in adorable and memorable photos.

A milestone session is a photo shoot that captures important developmental milestones and memorable moments in your child's early years. These sessions document things such as sitting up, crawling, and standing, providing a snapshot of the child's growth and personality over time.

Smash Cake

what I do


My smash cake sessions focus on the new and exciting moment that your little one goes from a baby, to a toddler. I have a large gallery of backdrops and props and together we choose the perfect set up for your little one's big day. Everything is cleaned and set up prior to your arrival, with your child's safety always top of mind. When you arrive we bring your little one in for some beautiful portraits without the cake, and then bring the cake in for the last half. This is a relaxed, fun, session and the focus is on letting your little one enjoy their big moments.

  • Have twins? No Problem! You have two options: Opt for seperate cake smash sessions, which can be scheduled back to back or different days, or combine their smashes into one session. With the combined option, they'll share the same backdrop, and you choose to have one cake or separate cakes, all within the same time slot
  • Would you like a milestone session with a more personal touch (colored backdrop, outdoors, with animals)? No problem. Send me a message and we can work that out! I do however require an additional $50.00 for these types of sessions.

What makes me different than other photographers?


There is a right photographer out there for everybody. We all bring something different to our sessions. What makes me different than other photographers? Being a mom on two young children (ages 3 and 7) I know it can feel challenging to get your kids excited for a photoshoot. That's why I try to make the shoot so much more than just another chore. My sessions are based around having fun as a family and making new memories. We play games, we run, we laugh. My sessions are very child led and if they aren't ready to do something we won't. By the end of the session both the parents and kids are happy and smiling from all the laughing they did, and I'm happy that I got to capture that special connection that the family has.

Testimonial

We have used Kaylas services on a couple occasions now. The first one being our son's smash cake session she was patient with our kid who of course did NOT want to smash the cake lol. Then our family photos which were postponed at least once due to weather and Kayla was so accommodating. We like her and hope to keep her around for such special occasions. Thank you Kayla!!!

Why Print Your Photos


Printing photos of your kids and displaying family photos in your home is incredibly important because it helps to create a tangible connection to precious memories. These images serve as daily reminders of the love, joy, and growth that define your family's unique story. They provide a sense of belonging and identity for children, reinforcing their place within the family unit. Moreover, having printed photos allows you to relive special moments and share them with future generations, creating a lasting legacy. In a digital age, physical photos offer a warm, personal touch that enhances the ambiance of your home, making it a true reflection of the love and togetherness your family shares.
