Melissa is amazing photographer. From her technical skills to her creative/design skills to her warm and kind personality, she is wonderful to work with. When I was expecting, I did extensive research on Kalamazoo area newborn photographers. I selected Melissa based off of her portfolio/technical skills. When we went for our newborn photos and saw her eye for design and skill with children I was so glad we picked her. She managed to get amazing photos of my now 15 month toddler and a 3 month old puppy. If she can do that, she can do anything.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is a fun way to celebrate the first birthday of your little one. We love to get creative with families to create a setup that is unique to your little one for their cake smash. Some ideas we have done in the past are” Mickey Mouse, Ice cream cones, Superhero, flowers, gingerbread house and so many more!

We ask parents provide the cake, outfit for their baby and any specialized props to go with the setup they decide on. We are happy to provide a backdrop if we have enough time to order one before the session. Please ask us about details, we love to get creative with parents for these fun sessions.

We suggest parents bring a towel to clean up baby after the session because it can get pretty messy. We do have a bathroom sink available to help with cleaning.

We suggest bring a “naked cake”, that is a cake with no frosting or minimal frosting. (Babies tend to not like a lot of frosting so I always suggest a more “naked” cake). A “fruit smash” is another great option. You can bring in baby’s favorite fruits instead of cake.
