M’s first birthday party | Cranberry Township

What an ADORABLE, sweet baby girl little M. is! I was so happy to be invited to photograph her first birthday party- smash cake and all!

M’s dad races cars and owns a garage in Cranberry that was the perfect place for a winter birthday party, so M’s party was themed around racing cars- complete with checkered tablecloths and pink accents! We even did her portraits right in front of her own little ATV.

The great thing about bringing me to your kid’s birthday party is that not only can we do portraits, but you can get lots of fantastic candids, too! The only thing better than great photos of a baby covered in cake, is a cake-covered baby being rinsed off in a kitchen sink.

Though I admit that my favorite photo from the day is when she snuggled up with a bottle in her aunt’s arms. They clearly have a connection here.

Here are a handful of my favorite pictures from her day… Enjoy!


When you hire me for your baby’s first birthday party, you don’t just get great candids at the party, you also get portraits with family members and of your little one! Put them all together in an album to cherish and share with your baby when he/she/they grows up. Contact me now to learn more.
