Maddox’s Beach Cake Smash – Annapolis, Maryland Photographer

When you are in Annapolis, there is nothing better than a smash cake in the sand.


Michelle told me that she had access to this private neighborhood beach and she wanted to use it for Maddox’s first birthday photos! It had the best scenery and multiple spots to use.


I mentioned in a previous post that it is very important to include some family photos in first birthday sessions. You as parents made it through a year of raising your child and these are images that would be perfect to hang around the house that are not birthday specific. (You can order prints through me in your gallery after you receive your images!!)


Pro tip: ALWAYS do some family photos before doing the cake! Usually once you give the child cake, it’s hard to take them away from it calmly. They are also VERY messy from digging into the cake.


To book your Childs first birthday cake smash session in the Annapolis area, visit my Parenthood page on my website!! Also, don’t forget to follow along on Instagram to see the most recent sessions!

COVID-19 has definitely changed a lot this year in so many ways from how we style and celebrate milestones to how we socialize with friends and family.   This past week Chandler asked me for some ideas of how to capture her birthday which just so happened to be the last day of her lock in […]

A little backstory before product photography came into my life…   I started really getting into photographing other people when we were in Florida in 2015. We then moved to Maryland in December of 2015 and that is when my business grew. I had regular clients, weddings, second shot a lot of weddings, and finally began […]

I remember how terribly inconsistent I was with poses during an engagement session back when I started photography and my oh my..   Do you remember Anna? Back in July of 2016 I was invited to a styled shoot by a friend 30 minutes before it started. I ended up getting stuck in traffic on […]

One thing I have learned from this quarantine (as a family photographer) is that there is always more work that can be done to work on your craft. Even if that does not include shooting. I am going back through older sessions and came across this session with my best friend Natalie of Natalie Grace […]

If you are stationed in Germany, you have most likely been to Burg Lichtenberg at least a handful of times. This is one of my favorite castles to go to for family sessions. The kids love to run around and play and the adults can really take in the scenery around Burg Lichtenberg. Going to this […]
