Erika Michelle will no longer take new bookings.  If your session is currently booked, we will proceed as scheduled. 

I have decided to go back to my career as a special education teacher.  Due to the demands of this position, I need to take a step back from the buisness.  

Thank you for your support.

    Take a look at a typical cake smash session flow

    1.Classic Baby

    The first birthday is a celebration for the whole family! Portraits of your family are included with your cake smash experience.  Family photos can be taken outside or in the studio.

    2. Clean Baby

    Non-cake photos of your baby in the backdrop will be provided.   This is the time we move and shake to get those sweet smiles. Prepare for a workout!

    3. Messy Baby

    Next, we bring in the cake and let your baby explore! If there are food allergies, or  if cake is not your thing, no problem, we will plan substitute activities.

    4. Splash Baby

    Cake can get messy! A bubble bath is included with your session.  The bath has two purposes: One, another opportunity for fun photos, and two,  cleans the baby!  After bath, we put on dry clothes and they are ready for a nap in the car ride home!

    5. Remember Baby

    The most important part is deciding how you will display your memories.  Choose from canvas, prints, framed portraits, matted portraits and albums! Each artwork is printed from professional labs using archival materials.
