Birthday/Smash Cake - Sheri Jolie Photography

Birthday and Cake Smash Sessions

Your baby is ONE! And what a huge milestone it is. Your child is growing up and won't be this little for much longer. Let us capture these fleeting moments so you can remember them for a lifetime.

We have three signature sessions  that we can customize to fit your baby's personality, birthday party theme, nursery, or anything that inspires you. The Classic Birthday session celebrates your babies first year of life. Whether it is celebrated at a beautiful park or at the beach, we will create beautiful images focusing on your fabulous one year old. The Classic Cake Smash  session creates memorable moments that equal a smashing good time! These sessions are done on-location. The Birthday Experience  includes everything that you would receive with the classic birthday session along with the ability to customize the experience by adding a smash cake and a custom-designed set with props. This session is not only FUN for baby, but for parents, too! We even bring along a tub and wipes so you can wipe down your messy one year old after the session.

The Birthday Experience


Once you schedule, we will discuss a theme for the shoot and go over all of the details, such as color scheme, outfits, and cake designs.  Prior to the shoot,  simply send us a photo of the outfits. Upon receiving the photos, LaRueCherie Photography will create a custom-designed set with props to tie everything together. 

On the day of the shoot, arrive with baby, family, and  2-3 outfits (2 looks for the portraits & 1 cake smash outfit)  then prepare to have fun as you celebrate your baby's birthday in style.
